1993 Kawasaki Bayou Carb Stall Hose


Recommended Posts

I bought our son his first quad last week, we took it out today, rode for almost 2 hours no problem. We stopped at an overlook area and when we went to leave his bike wouldn't start. He was parked on a pretty steep incline, so we coasted it to a flatter area. Still nothing. looked around for a bit, tried a few mins later and it was fine... Rode another 5 mins and it just cut out, let sit for 5 and would start back up, did this maybe 3 more times and finally I got to tow strap and pulled him out. Got back home to untrailer it and it started just fine. I checked the plug, looked clean, checked the gap, made a small adjustment. Plenty of oil, coolant and fuel. I did run it out of fuel before this trip and had to switch to the reserve... I took the fuel filter out and blow trough it both ways. I drove it up and down the street and seams to run great... We are planning on taking a long trip in the morning, but dont want this happening again... I was looking at the carb and it raised a question for me. On the left side on the carb, near the top, by the CKG stamp is a nipple, looks like a hose should be attached there...there isnt. what goes there and could dust be getting in there and causing the stall? Like I said, I ran it up and down the street since I have been home, and it seams fine now, but then again it seamed fine for the first 2 hours we were out today too. :) Thanks for any ideas!!

Welcome to QUADCRAZY! I think you have an intermittent fuel starvation. It may be yoru float in your carb that is not leveling off allowing the float boal to fill up. You may be due for a carb overhaul.

* Added manufacturer to thread title.

Thats kinda what I was thinking, how about that tube sticking up? should I do something about it? And is it possible to take the carb off without removing the gas tank?
