99 Xplorer 400 jetting.

Recommended Posts

So I picked up this quad for 200 bucks. Needs everything serviced or replaced due to neglecting. So I tore into it and stripped it to the frame and did a bunch of work. I’m having an issue. It runs and revs to 3/4 throttle and almost bogs out. It smokes a lot at wot. So the 210 jet is responsible for that. I know it’s a 2 stroke carb and I just don’t know what to jet with. The oil injection is faulty so I disconnected it and run 32:1 mixed. Any ideas fellas?

Merry Christmas and happy new year frank!
I disconnected it from the intake boot. Put a bolt thru the intake to cap off the line. Then I kinked both the lines from the pump and tank so nothing got in there. The tank is empty except for the little bit that’s left.

Im going to try a 175 main and leave the needle alone. If anything I may change the needle to a cel or yym. Depending on throttle response

I would definitely change the jet. Reason i was asking about the oil intake was because if left the oil intake port open you would have some suction drawing air through that port but i know you better then that. 
Did this problem just start happening?

Yeah. Out of no where. That 175 was worse than before with the 210. I’m gonna try 240 230 and 220. It’s dialed in right. Runs great. Just not at wot

Okay. So 210 220 230 and 240 are all the same. The 175 loads up and bogs but if ya feather into it,
stumbles. If ya juice it it will bog but clear out and rev like a beast. I’m thinking a spark delivery is the culprit. I just don’t want to lean it so hard I melt rings.

I bet the flywheel has something to do with it. The coil is new and the plug. Reeds and intake boot. The carb is clean and no engine leaks. Compression is a solid 148 and holds.

I hear your point on possibly the flywheel and the trigger coil maybe having a problem.  Its possible that the gap is causing a problem  and at high rpms its breaking down?   Maybe put an inline spark monitor so you can see if its in fact breaking down at the high rpm.
If its breaking up at wot it makes me think its the reeds.  I know you changed them but maybe the reed retainer plates are not right? 
Why I'm thinking along these lines is the high rpm problems.  During the intake period at high rpms the velocity and intake at the  reeds could  be problematic causing a fuel delivery problem? 
Im just throwing some possibilities out there maybe you will stumble onto something.

Is there a difference in reed plates? I know branding is different. I.E. Boyseen fmf oem. But the only difference I see is the dual stage reeds vs regular. What I really need is a multi tool to check the every thing. Kinda like a amp probe or a clamp on voltage meter. I know Klein makes them. But are they optimal for 12 volts or less?

Klien makes a good one that goes low. I will send you a pic of mine. Have you put any thought into the in line ignition tester to see if your losing spark at any certain rpm?

The reed plates are different depending on the brand and  power band of the engine. What's in there now ? I know you checked and changed but i would have a second look at that and make sure that the plates are ok.

I have one for timing. I guess I could use that one but what do I flash off of. It’s not a 4sroke with ignition marks.

      Ok, so I bought this scream of a deal the other day - a 94 King Quad 300 for $40.00.  It's been sitting outside with no carburetor on it for about a year.  Its rusty, missing some parts, wiring is all cut up and spliced etc.  No seat, no racks but the plastic is all there minus the headlight housing.  Anyway, who can pass up a $40.00 quad right?  I get it home and looked at the sight glass for oil level, it's about 1/2 oil and 1/2 water.  I drain it, refill it and turn the motor by hand (recoil starter is missing) and it turns over just fine.  I worked on the wiring for about an hour and got it to turn over with the electric starter and got enough of it sorted out to get a spark.  Did a quick compression test, 70 lbs.  Wet test bumped it up to 90.  Ok, so rings and cylinder washed out with water for a year, not too surprised.  I thought 'what the hell' and sprayed some starting fluid in it and it ran for about 2 seconds - enough to show  it's got life.  Since then the compression has gotten worse, I can't get enough pressure to activate the carb diaphragm, therefore no fuel pump either.  The compression is now around 60.
        Anyway, my question is....is it worth it to try to get this thing going?  I tore the top end down today and the cam and one of the rockers is pretty worn.  I figured a top end job would be about $100 or so, depending on the condition of the cylinder but I'll probably have to put a cam and rockers in it as well.  Doing some research on ebay I figure I'll have to spend about $500-$700 to make the whole machine right again.  Much less just to make it run and use as-is but I won't really like it until it's right.  I don't mind doing the work, I actually enjoy it but I'm concerned about what all that water did to the rest of the internals, I can't really test it all out until I can make it run.
      I know it's a basket case but I'm not into it much at all, even if I do the top end and find something else wrong I'm still not out much.  I'm leaning toward ordering the top end parts and going from there unless you can convince me otherwise - any way to check the rest of the internals without tearing it down?  I plan on flushing the oil cooler before I do another oil change, I've drained it twice now and it gets milky almost immediately just turning the starter - I suspect the oil cooler is polluted badly.
       
      I'll get some pictures today if anyone want to see them.
       
      thanks!

      Hello,
      I recently picked up an ‘07 KFX 700. All was going well, rode it about 40 miles, when it started bogging at low speeds. If I kept the revs higher, I was just fine. Also, a persistent issue since I picked it up is the fairly difficult start (but it is abnormally cold right now and the quad is jetted for the dunes at summertime).
      Regarding the complete lack of idle, I have to rev it a couple times to get it to idle after starting it, after which it’s 50/50 whether it remains idling. I don’t have low fuel, but all of this began after I rode it pretty hard and the radiator fan kicked in. Might be overheating, just wanted to hear your opinions.

      Hello! I picked up a YFM400 and I would love to talk shop with knowledgeable co-owners, and I'd love input about the machine from anyone here who clearly knows more than I do! Cheers from NY

      I have a 2002 Suzuki LT-F500F, and am a first time atv  owner. I rode two wheel bikes for many years, and now, two months in to being a new at owner, am just not enamored with the thumb throttle, and I’m wondering if anyone has tried a conversion to a typical twist grip throttle as found on all motorcycles? If so, how do you like it?
    • By pablo Blake
      Its in pretty rough shape and its gonna be my first atv, I worked on bikes before but nothing to do with quads. Anyways the quad has some problems and im tryna figure out what to focus on first. So the U joints i think are shot. The bike starts first try every time ussually have to give it a lil gas with the throttle and revs right up, idles fine but its running REALLY rich 3 starts and my brand new plug was pitch black

      Bike is L model

      Its using the original mikuni carb but im not the best at fixing the carbs and wondering if there is anywhere online that would be able to either walk me through it or help me with it i didnt see a air mixture screw so it seems like im gonna half to open it up and adjust like the float and a couple other things
