No start issue on my 2006 Ozark 250cc

Recommended Posts

Hello i recently purchased a 2006 Ozark 250cc. Im trying to get it started but i get nothing. It does start and has fuel along with spark. I noticed there is a idle dial on the bottom of my carb. how should that be set. I think it is fully open as far as the dial goes. If someone could lead me to the process on how to tune the carb i would appreciate it. Thanks

well if someone did wind in the idle screw under the carbi, the bike would be harder to start, but most likely would still start up and rev its head off!

to play it safe wind the screw out 5 or 10 turns from where it is (assuming that it is wound all the way in) and try setting it once the bike is running (it can only be set once the bike is running and ideling all by its self)

has the bike been stored with out starting for a long time?

what was the bike like the last time it was running?

these little bikes are just so great and start very well. so there must be somthing going on.

are you using the choke (the little black lever of the left handlebar)?

Thanks for the reply. Now when i get it to start a lot of smoke burn through the exhaust as if it's burning gas. I get the impression that it is running too rich. I managed to get to idle but when i give it gas it chokes out and like if there is too much fuel running through the carbs. Do you think it may be a jetting issue?

i dont think it is a jetting problem.

because what you are describing is very bad!

and it would have to be a person changing the jetting, finding it was then running like a dog and blowing smoke and them leaving the bike that way.

initialy I would ask if your airbox if full of fuel?

or is the vacume line on the fuel tap is wet (it is the smaller hose, and should be completely dry inside)

or there is the possobility that the fuel is contaminated with diesile fuel, not petrol.

Well when i first bought it it had fuel in the airbox even in the crankcase. So i had to do two oil changes to clear the fuel out. I had filled it up with fresh gas since most of the gas when i bought it was in the crankcase. I checked if the fuel tap was working and it is. When i disconnect it no fuel drips out only when i go and start it so that's out the question. Where are the pilot screws on thing. I don't know much about this carb. I have a yamaha banshee and know my way around that carb very well and i can tune it like nothing. I come upon across this here and i am stumped. Any type of feedback i can get i would appreciate it.

your fuel tap auto shut off can still be working, but what I am talking about is the VACUME line going to the back of the fuel tap.

it is where some vacume is constantly sucking the back of the fuel tap, to open the 1 way valve to get the fuel flow out the OUTLET of the fuel tap.

there is a problem that can happen to the fuel tap where the thin rubber bladder that the vacume pulls against, the thin rubber can be damaged and it can flow straight fuel right through the rubber (which is not ment to do it at all) and the fuel will travel down the vacume line and it enters the inlet track in to the motor and the bike can be iether rich... or even completely flood the motor.

this is why I was asking if the vacume line was dry inside, because if there is even a little wetness, then the rubber bladder is letting fuel through. (which is a cause of the bike running rich)

Profill, that is a very good diagnosis, seems to make alot of sense. You seem like a very smart guy, who knows his way around these machines really well. However, I must point out one thing, VACUUM. Sorry, I just couln't resist.:wink:

I took the carb completely apart and noticed that the small diaphragm rubber gasket was not sealing properly. I noticed the black rubber gasket on the diaphragm was pinched wit the one of the screws and was not set in they way it suppose to. Could this issue be my problem of why this thing sounded so rich and flooded my crankcase? Im going to give a shot tomorrow when i get off of work and let you all know if this cured the issue.

Im also going to inspect the fuel tap. as well thats some really good advise and never would of thought of that. Thank

Alright i have an update on my progress on this Suzuki. Well as Profill has said to check the diaphragm on my fuel tap. Well what do ya know, the diaphragm on my fuel tap was corroded letting fuel into the carb through the vacumm line. I switched fuel tap with my KFX 400 since they are the same and the Ozark ran really well, just a few adjustments but ran excellent. Thank you. Tomorrow to the bike shop i go in hopes they have one in stock. Your very knowledgeable thanks!

Looks like you hit the nail right on the head on this one, obviously your spelling ability is no indication of your intelligence. Nice work.

      Hey Guys, 
      I picked up my first ever ATV on friday. It's an 89 Big Bear. It has some cosmetic issues, but seems pretty decent mechanically. I did have trouble getting the idle tuned to the book spec of 1,300 - 1,500 RPM. I took the carb apart and cleaned it out. Somebody must have lost the spring for the pilot screw, as it's no longer in the carb. Also, I have a dual cable carb, I noticed all the IPL's show the single cable carb, but I see others on youtube had dual cable carbs. When I would adjust my idle speed screw, nothing would happen. I bottomed it out and it didn't seem to make much if any difference. When i pulled the carb apart I saw the screw doesn't even touch the linkage, it's too short. Do the two different versions have different length carb screws? I'm wondering if somebody lost the ordinal, replaced it with the IPL number for a single cable carb which is shorter, and gave up on getting the ATV to idle. If you hold the throttle just a bit to get it to the RPM range listed above, it "idles" great. Any ideas? Or any links to the dual cable IPL?
      Have you guys have good luck with the aftermarket intake boots? Or is this a buy once, cry once deal? I'm guessing the OEM units last longer, but there is a huge price difference. If you have had good luck with aftermarket, where did you get it? My current boot doesn't seem to have any air leaks, but it's encased in JB weld... 
      I'm getting a 9th digit check sum error on the ATV when I put the VIN in. Has anybody seen this before on a Yamaha? The VIN  number looks original as well as the paint around it. 
       
      Thanks, 
       
      Scott

      So I have a Honda Fourtrax 300 year 1988. The ignition doesn’t start it with no sound. The headlights won’t turn on. It has a brand new charged battery, fuses are good, oil is good, gas is good, reverse is rusted, it shifts good, won’t jumpstart but when you try it will turn over, it will start if you jump the solenoid give it gas and spray starter fluid on the breather but it won’t stay on long but will stay on for the little time it does by itself. I don’t know what’s wrong and I need help!

      So I bought a 2001 Quad Runner 250 for my son/wife. Sorry I run a Grizzly 660.
      I’ve rode it many times with no issue.
      My son’s first time out, I could always hear him but feeling he ran it red line in first gear a lot.
      So this is what it was doing during/end of the 2-3 hour ride:
      - halfway though noticed smoke (oil) coming from front of the motor sort of under exhaust manifold. Once back at the truck, it was really noticeable. Definitely oil burning off. I’m thinking from the top end maybe.
      So quick inspection:
      - No leaks or seepage of oil that I could see
      - I pulled the plug and it’s black but not wet
      - No blue/white smoke in exhaust
      - seems to still ride fine
      - Engine still has plenty of oil
      But now that I’m looking at it back at the house - it’s a hard/won’t start when hot. It starts right up cold no problem but once it stalls when hot, have to let it sit for 10-15 before it will start again.
      It wasn’t idling before that trip so I jacked up the idle a bit as well but I think that’s a carb clean/adjustment but...
      Any input is appreciated.
      Thanks for any help.

      Now I need some settings and maybe the "what not to do for Gods sake" before I start dis-assembling. Anything guys. I see there is an idle adjust cable Is there any other settings on this carb? My drain screw appears well used

      Hi All,
      I live in Minnesota and bought a 2016 CFORCE 500 HO. I am in hope to see if there is anyone in the US that is experiencing this sudden drop off in RPM below 4000 RPM. I have uploaded some videos of my issue on YouTube. I will list three of the four I posted. The fourth can be found on my channel but it is a comparison between my Polaris 570 and my CFORCE 500.
      I quit on my first dealer because we just did not mix well together. I brought it to another CFMOTO dealer that just became a CFMOTO dealer in January 2016. They are in a large ranch and agriculture area in a neighboring state that is pretty close to where I live. They have close to every brand available. They are a much larger dealer than the first one I bought the unit from.
      I brought the unit three weeks ago to them and they have worked on it a good solid week and have given up on it. I have read reports from owners in Canada that the dealers there were aware of the issue and have had success in fixing the herky jerky drivability issue.
      I am picking it up tomorrow and bringing it back home. It has been to the trails of the Black Hills this year and was new in late April. 300 miles on it. It has never changed. Very hard to ride on the trails or when I herd livestock.
      Here are the links to my videos.



      I can't accept that this is normal operation. Does anyone from CFMOTO China scan these posts?
      I need help that CFMOTO USA has not provided.
      Thanks
      Kevin

      I have a Chinese Hybird 250 or that's what I was told it was. I found 17 numbers on the frame. Will these numbers tell me exactly what it is that I have? (I know that its a 2006 from a plate on the front)
