2006 Yamaha Raptor 80 Starting and Running Issues


Recommended Posts

I have a 2006 yamaha raptor 80, that i am haveing an issue with. It has about 20 hours on it pretty new hasnt been road much it has been sitting for 3 or 4 years. The first thang is it wont start just by pushing the start button you have to push start it for some reason? And next thang is it will not stay running if you turn the choke off. You have to leave the choke on all the way or it will die, does anyone know what the problem is with this 4 wheeler? Thanks for all that can help me out here.

The reason it runs bad and won't run without the clutch is that the carb is probablu gummed up with old fuel. Drain and clean the tank, wash out all the fuel lines and the fuel petcock, replace any fuel filter if there is one. Lastly, take the carb COMPLETELY apart and clean EVERY little part and passage in that carb, if there are holes that you can't get anything through, use compressed air to blow them out. You want that thing spotless when you put it back on. Make sure the float is properly adjusted and make sure the float pin is in good shape, the tip should be soft and smooth. Check the condidion of any thing rubber, diaphragms, gaskets/o-rings and hoses. Inspect the intake boot and intake line coming from filter, check the filter itself. If everything looks to be in order, put the carb back on give it a try.
