2000 AC 90 idles but dies with throttle

Recommended Posts

its a 2000 AC 90

it runs, but when ever I hit the throttle it just dies. The compression is good, i drained the carb....still nothing. Runs perfect, then any throttle will kill it. Any help will be well appreciated, thanks in advance!

I have one doing the same thing. I still think it may be carb related.

Has it been sitting a while? Maybe the float is getting stuck. Take the carb apart to see what's going on, maybe it's starviing on fuel.

Jets could be clogged, how's the air filter? Did you get a bunch of snow in your airbox, have it melt and suck water?

Yeah, you're right. I was just throwing some ideas out.

I changed your thread title for google search purposes.

you think compression could have anything to do with it, or maybe a seal or piston ring? It was at WOT for like 2 minutes straight lol...i kinda beat the hell out of it.

Compression could be an issue for sure, do a test. Also check the timing. If you have a service manual, it should tell you how to check the ignition components with a digital multimeter. If every thing looks ok with those, check valve clearances and the timing chain.

I would rip the carb out like you said you were going to do, and a compression test like DirtDemon said. I'm leaning towards a carb issue. By a rebuild kit from the dealer.

Yep sounds like it maybe a little water in the gas.

Really? Should I do anything before running it again?

Wonder how that happened? I had the thing buried in the snow, but im not sure how it could have gotten in to the carb or gas tank.

No if it is running fine now I wouldn't worry about it.

You also could have gotten a little water behind the stator cover. If you have the same problem again in the future, check the secondary ignition system. Ignition components work fine one minute and can go completely dead the next.

Glad to hear you got it running. Maybe you are getting some moisture. As long as it's running now!!! :biggrin:

      I traded my dirt bike for a 2000 arctic cat 500 semi automatic. when i went to go pick it up the guy said it didn't get spark, so i thought it was going to be something simple like a coil. well it wasn't. first thing i did was take all the plastics off to get easy asses to every thing. so i bought a brand new battery for it seeing if it got power, it didn't. the dash wouldn't light up neither would the lights, so then i tried to see if the starter worked it didn't so i jumped the solenoid and the starter started turning over the motor. so i bought a new starter solenoid, when i installed it the electric start still wouldn't work , so i bought a new kill switch and starter switch that goes on the handle bars, when i installed it, the electric start still wouldn't work. so then i went to see if i could get spark by pull starting it, i didn't get any spark, so i bought a new spark plug, and guess what, still no spark, so then i bought a new coil for it to see if that would fix it. so i installed the new coil and guess what no spark still and still no power to the dash. so to sum it up i'm not getting any power any where to the four wheeler. so i cleaned all the leads and plugs and still nothing. so then yesterday i took the wiring apart to see if their was any frayed wires, and no their wasn't. does any one have any ideas what this could be i'm up for anything. also if any one knows how to bypass all the wiring just to get it to start i open to that to, or if someone knows where  i can get a wiring diagram.

      i have recently purchased a yamaha kodiak ultramatic 400cc. it is used and sat outside for a long time. i have done a lot of work on it and got it to run sort of. when i try to start it, it will start and run for a little bit then it will die, the time it runs varies. it has a new cdi, spark plug, and stator. most of the time it wont even start it just cranks over. there was one time that it started up right away and ran perfectly but the next time i tryed it wouldnt start. before that one time every time it started and ran it had a popping sound. i cant figure out why it wont run. any help would be muchly appreciated! thanks!

      Hey all,
      I'm new to this site and to CanAm/Bombardier atv's. I purchased this quad local to my area and shortly after started noticing a knocking noise from the bottom end, which I've been told may need a rebuild.
      The atv is complete, but I'm now looking to part it out, unless someone knows where I can get the bottom end rebuilt for a decent price.
      I can take some pics of the quad and upload. If you need parts off of it, let me know and make me an offer.
