Carb Replacement (90cc Arctic Cat DVX/Kymco)

Recommended Posts

Morning All,  Wondering if anyone has had any success using aftermarket carburetors on the smaller ATVs?  Picked up a couple Arctic Cat DVX90s over the weekend (2006 & 2008), and one of them has an aftermarket carb that needs to be replaced (it's missing the brass barb for the fuel line ).  Both are the same Kymco power plant, but different frame/body.

I swapped carburetors between the machines to test opreation.  Both ran great, and seem to manage the electronic choke properly. 

Am I better off to buy the replacement carb from AC ($250), or try an aftermarket?  Part of me wants a manual choke.....

Thanks in advance for any thoughts.

Aftermarket carbs are a much repeated topic here at Quadcrazy and will be a talked about topic forever! Many times here we’ve spoke about them and the general census is that they are not very good.  One of our memebers @JacobSlabach has mentioned that they needed to be adjusted way out from the spec position and has gotten them to work.   But the way I see it, if the quad is worth it then put an oem carb on. I always check eBay for a used oem.

I would agree with @Frank Angerano, Aftermarket just dont give the full performance that oem carbs do- but they will work.  I put them on bikes I plan to flip and so far, have had success with them.  If you are looking for a cheap fix, go aftermarket, but its kinda hit-or-miss with china.......no offense..tired over it GIF by Desus & Mero

      I had to adjust the valves on this 500 (and  few other things) and I'm trying to get the cam timing right, and something is really out-of-whack here. It seems anyway. When I line up the dots like the service manual describes, the lobes on the 2 cams are in almost in the same position. According to the manual (and a youtube vid or 2) the lobes should be at aproximatley 10 oclock on the int and 2 oclock on the exhaust. These are nowhere near that. There must be a woodruff type key on the sprockets. I wonder if those are sheared off? Thanks for any input!
