That's how you know. Real mikuni or kehin say it. Chinese copies dont say anything on them.

Yep a good carb. So go through the carb and the manual and set it where it needs to be.  Then double check the choke as well and see that it’s properly seated.

It say mikuni I was looking for something Chinese that name is still Chinese 

Mikuni is actually a Japanese company.

China  can  produce some  junk parts , but unfortunately  so  can  Canada  and  the US.

China is also  capable of producing some very  high quality  products , and if you  look  closely  you'll  find an  uncomfortably large number of  "American"  or "Canadian" products  containing some Chinese  made  parts in their  makeup.  Dismissing  any  countries  products  as junk  out of  hand  is  foolishness in the extreme.

As far  as carburettors  are concerned,  unless it  is  corroded  badly, very  few  actually  need to be replaced..  They  all  can  be  cleaned but attention to detail  is  needed to  get every  passage and port / jet cleaned and unplugged . .Too often  tiny holes  in jet tubes  and  carb throats are missed.  The only  carbs  I've ever seen that  needed replaced  were some on such things  as weed eaters where the carb is plastic with some  jets and  parts  non serviceable  and plugged from  being  unused too  long  with old gas in them .

Bear in mind that some Chinese carbs are dead ringers of the Japanese produced ones like Mikuni right down to the name on them. Even though they look the same, I've found some that have jets that don't interchange.

If you cannot find a lift then maybe stiffer shock springs would help out.

Usually it’s a batter of creating shock mount extensions. Just a couple inches and you should t have to mess with lengthening the steering stem.

There was a hole on top of the plastic cover where clutch wore through it that is one of the worse engineering designs I have ever seen wish there was a way to turn it to shaft driven I'm just glad I wasn't on it it would have blew my ankle to pieces it the loose like a spring on a car it just blew into a million pieces shot the plastic cover about 50 yards away

You are very lucky. Honestly I would get a new (used) cover and clutch and move this thing along to the next person.   This thing has been a pain in the ass. You dodged a bullet!

just a quick thought about the problem you're having. My grandpas sportsman 500 would run like crap and die when trying to hit the throttle, and his problem was a leaking air box lid.. half the screws were missing or broken ears and it was getting too much air. 

not saying its your problem, just thinking it might be something super easy to check out.

      Good Morning All!,
      After a significant amount of reading and tinkering, I'm stumped.  We have a pair of Arctic Cat DVX 90s (4-stroke), and one of them runs very rich at wide open throttle.  I've cleaned the carb (which was installed new  last year), verified the main jet (80) to be per the original spec, installed a new air filter, tried a hotter spark plug (CR6HSA), and adjusted the valves (tightened a modest 0.0005" but improved starting).  The hotter spark plug may have help just a bit, but not appreciably.
      Just for fun, I swapped the CDI between machines, and that didn't help either.
      Fouling plugs very quickly, but not to the point the machine will not run or start.  [black instantly]
      Logically, I assume I'm revving out, but the other machine doesn't "stumble/blubber" anything like this one.
      Should I try a smaller main jet?
      Any ideas you guys may have would be much appreciated.
      Thanks in advance everyone.

      posted a while back - it was running at one point - I have all the plastic shroud off - it's down to frame and engine now
      -fuel pump: when line from petcock is attached, no fuel comes out other side to carb; the line to the carb is open (can blow through it); I thought when I cranked engine that the pump would spit out fuel on other side but it does not; I removed fuel pump and opened it up - diaphragm looks good - but internal areas had lotsa calcification build up - I cleaned this out and dried it good - the clear plastic pieces (?diaphragms) aren't broken - the spring w/ steel ball on end moves freely; am putting it back on tomorrow; but can anyone answer about the pump? isn't it supposed to pump fuel through it... to other side... to carb? puzzling
      -along with fuel pump: I replaced petcock 3 weeks ago (gas tank had rusty fuel in bottom - cleaned it out prior to new petcock); when I turn petcock arrow NOT to on or reserve, fuel comes out of line; when I turn it to on or reserve, fuel doesn't come out; puzzling
      -I don't know what's on back of fuel pump - it's a valve that has a hose coming out of it - looks like it goes to engine/carb - I haven't traced this out yet - what is it?
      -can squirt gas on air filter and engine will run for 2-3 seconds then stop - fuel in top of carb (under diaphragm) does same
      -it likely needs carb rebuild - will get to this - but something isn't allowing fuel to get from fuel pump to carb
      -I THINK it has a mikuni model x carb - diaphragm is ID 26mm  OD 68mm - hard to find inexpensive diaphragm, I guess because it's a model x
      -last thing - I replaced solenoid due to old one clicking; I HAVE to be charging the battery or it won't start/turn over - battery just goes dead; but if charging, it'll turn over nicely; i'm guessing it's a bad battery
      -any help appreciated - I've never owned an ATV before - inherited this beast from grandparent in-law

      I have a Kawasaki Bayou 220 KLF220A and I cannot get it to start using the starter button. I have replaced the starter solenoid and the starter relay. I have followed the wiring diagram in the repair manual and it looks like the switch is working well, the neutral and reverse relay have power running through them and appear tp be working correctly. However, I can not find a wire runnng the the starter button that has power on it. Anybody have any idea what the break down is?

      I have a 2011 850 Sportsman.  Has been absolutely trouble free except for 1 thing. I am on my 4th. ignition switch. I don't know if it's that they are all chinese junk or what.  It gets to a point  when you turn the key and it will act like the battery is going bad. Cranks real slow or not at all. Put a new switch in and its fine. New one will last 1 1/2 - 2 years and its junk. I've had the Polaris brand and after market. As a matter of fact the original one lasted the lest amount of time.  Other than that it's been a perfect machine . No electrical problems. No battery problems. Just curious if anyone else has had the same issue.

      Does anyone know how to access the check engine codes on a 2018 450 sportsman. Just changed battery and spark plug . It runs fine but the light is on and I need this to plow snow and need it reliable. Any ideas . Thanks
    • By marek porowski
      Hi, I got a check engine light and a diagnostic code 520194 2 and i know it has something to do with throttle voltage out of range
      I'd like to know if thats something that can be adjusted ? Or does anybody know what should i test  ?  I just bought this atv and I'm fixing it as its been in an accident. 
      I also changed throttle leaver as original one was broken and I noticed inside the 4x4 selector assembly there are 2 contacts but I'm not sure if they're suppose to make contact at idle. I found some info online but some are saying they're suppose to touch and some say they're not. I think id depends of the year of the machine but I'm not sure. I'd really appreciate any help that i can get with this
      Thanks
