I'm working on my brothers' 2002 Suzuki Vinson 500 . It sat for a few years before I got into it. I'm concentrating on the carb - I replaced orings, needle, etc. and soaked jets, bowl and anything that I could get off the carb that the solution wouldn't eat. I also removed the tank and flushed it with hot water - it's clean. The gas cap innards rusted away and the tank had a lot of rust and water in it before I cleaned it. I replaced the gas cap and installed a new fuel valve because the screens were broken in the old one. The bike will run but spits and sputters and backfires. If you "open it up" it falls on its face and stalls - but starts right up. Here is a link to an exploded view of the carb: Ohio Honda Yamaha Motorcycle ATV Dealer - J & J Motors - Kawasaki Suzuki Scooter Utility vehicle, parts, accessories, apparel
Can anyone point me in the direction of the problem? It may still be a "clean carb parts issue" . My problem is that the parts list doesn't identify the parts to a degree that I understand. If you said" look at the pilot jet", I'm not sure which jet that would be....See what I mean? It'll run very good if I remove the air filter and cover the opening with my hand and part my fingers a little for the air to get in. Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance, Jim
What the hell does everyone use to pull a flywheel/rotor on a 99 yamaha bear tracker 250? I have looked online and they show 2 or 3 different ones. Finally figured mine out and need to remove the stator rotor to repair the starter gear.it wasnt installed correctly causing my issue of it just spinning the starter
Hey all, I recently bought an 01' Sportsman 500 HO from my brother in-law that he's had since new. It runs awesome, just has 2 slight issues that I am addressing. 1st issue is fuel dripping out of overflow. I did some searching around and saw that the O-rings in the carb wear out and allow fuel to leak, so I replaced both the Orings inside the carb. This didn't fix it and still leaking which leads me to believe the float needs adjusted, I'm just not sure on correct way to check and correct this. 2nd issue is no speedometer. Also in researching this it appears to be Hall Effect/speed sensor. I'll be ordering one of those to replace, which sounds like a pretty straight forward process. I guess really my only reason for the post is to get some help on the gas leak issue. Any thoughts? Other than that, I love the bike and really enjoy riding it. Thanks in advance for any replies.

My daughter is a Navy Lieutenant (Captain in the other services). She served an 8 month carrier tour in the Persain Gulf last year. She was the Intelligence Officer for an F/A-18 Super Hornet squadron.
She is currently stationed in San Deigo in another unit. She was recently put on notice she might be picked for a year long assignment in Iraq.
Of course I understand you go where the military tells you to go, but as a Dad I did not want her over there. The Good News is - she is not going. Yeah!
I am indeed a happy Dad.

A lot of you know I had to buy a nonrunning quad to get a replacement frame for my prairie 650. I paid 300.00 today I sold all the left over parts for 200.00 The stuff was worth more than that I'm sure but at the same time I don't have too part it out and wait for buyers and shipping no ads no calls to deal with & I get all the stuff out of my way and get that part of my garage back.
