1990 Warrior 350 carb issue

After my girlfriend rides for an hour or so the carb starts duming fuel out of the bottom and top lid like the float is stuck. Its done it two rides in a row now. I get it home and pull the carb and the float seems to be working fine. Anyone have any idea what I can look at next to try to figure this out? Is there any adjustability in the float level? Is there any way to check the floats functioning to shut the fuel off like on a Holley? We want to do some day rides but if it isnt reliable I dont want my girlfriend following me deep into the back country if it's going to dump fuel onto the trails.

I would inspect the float for anything on the float body and the inside of the carb that could be causing it to hang up and also look for holes in the float, if it begins to get a little fuel inside, it wont float like it is supposed to. You may not be able to see any holes or cracks, so it may be a good idea to take the float and submerge it in gasoline for a few hours and see if it ends up with any gas in the float. I would also take a look at the float stopper, make sure the rubber tip is soft and undamaged and make sure the seat area is clean and unubstructed. Another thing I would look for is debris in the fuel or float bowl.

sounds like it may be passing crud thru to the needle and seat... I'd put a small filter in-line [available at any bike shop] and that might solve your problem. Kinda strange that it would start AFTER it has been ridden awhile, unless the riding is stirring up some debris in the tank... fuel filter will solve that.

If you can, buy some non-ethanol fuel [we have it here at the pumps] it'll make your rubber parts last longer. Ethanol, otherwise known as alcohol, loves to eat up rubber parts! I have 2 ATCs I have to rekit cuz of that ethanol, so only non ethanol fuel from now on... it's like 103 octane and runs $3.79/gal in the tourist trap where I live... :cool:

I messed with it some more and it got worse. I ordered a petcock kit and a carb kit. The petcock doesnt work for crap either. I was told the guy I bought it from rebuilt the carb right before I bought it. maybe not or not right. If I can do 4 barrel holleys Im sure I can do this little single.

      I just purchased the ATV and it run really rough with the breather filter on and lid on the breather box. Once I take the lid off and remove the filter it runs better but it backfires through the carb.
      What could I do to fix this.
      The carb is fairly new.
      And I put high grade non ethanol gas in it hoping it would help some.

      So just acquired this 2002 Suzuki Vinson LT-A500F and am in the beginning process of getting it to run.  I found two small screw size holes in the top of the tank, it would appear someone was not careful screwing something down to the plastic cover and accidently damaged the tank. My preface is to replace the tank but I am not finding any available, so can anyone give me any advise on this. If I do not find a suitable one at a reasonable price I will look at possible doing a epoxy type repair on this one. 
      Next is the fuel gauge, its missing and is creating another hole in the tank. I found this ONE which looks like it on ebay but the seller does not include any dimensions to verify.  So any advise on this will be greatly appreciated as well. 
      I did see the post on changing the fuel petcock with the Yamaha on/off valve which I have ordered already.

      Out on the trail, visibility is everything. When you’re riding, you need to be able to see every potential obstacle well in advance, and sometimes, that includes things behind or beside your vehicle. On your own private property, sideview and rearview mirrors are a clear value-add, helping you avoid some of the entirely preventable accidents that can pop up when you’re driving in Reverse. On public trails, those mirrors are an absolute necessity, drastically helping mitigate the risk of vehicle-to-vehicle collisions and prevent bodily injuries.

      That’s why Kemimoto, a market leader in the design and manufacture of ATV and UTV accessories, has devoted so much focus to UTV mirrors over the past decade, in addition to accessories like saddlebags, seat bags, whip lights, and more. When the company was founded back in 2011, there weren’t any readily available, affordable off-road mirrors for Side-by-Sides on the market that were much good for anything other than showing riders the rears of their own vehicles. So, the company’s founders took up the challenge, setting out to create their own side mirrors to provide fellow ORV enthusiasts with a better view of their blind spots.

      Mirrors have been Kemimoto’s hottest-selling products ever since.

      Today, Kemimoto has a staggeringly impressive collection of sideview and rearview mirrors for UTVs, ATVs, and bikes on offer, with nearly a hundred unique mirror packages on sale through the official Kemimoto website. Kemimoto makes mirrors to suit any need and any budget. Many of them are best-sellers in their respective categories, and for very good reason: as a direct-to-consumer brand, products are marketed, sold, and delivered to customers directly by Kemimoto. That extra efficiency allows the company to price its ATV and UTV accessories more effectively, and sell high-quality mirrors and other products while keeping prices extremely affordable.
      Equally important, Kemimoto’s ORV mirrors are just plain good. Design, development, and engineering all take place in-house, and the company even holds a few patents for some of its innovations. They have their own laboratory for product testing, to ensure that every mirror that wears the Kemimoto name is tough enough to go the distance. The mirrors are designed for beginners and professionals alike, with ridiculously simple install procedures that typically require a hand tool or two and just a few minutes of your time to set up. They are made to suit the overall aesthetics and performance requirements of the vehicles they are designed for.

      As an example, let’s take a look at a pair of Kemimoto’s lighted side mirrors designed for Sport Side-by-Sides. As the name implies, Kemimoto has built two levels of lighting into each of the side mirrors. You can fire up one or both of the lights in each mirror. And with an angle of illumination of 195 degrees, you can see exactly where you are going.
      Additionally, these mirrors boast shatterproof tempered glass, which helps protect the driver and passengers in case of an impact. They also feature a breakaway design, so they will fold up if you get a little too close to a tree or any other obstacle rather than snap right off. When it comes to construction, Kemimoto made the shell out of a high-quality ABS, while and the frame and bracket are built out of aluminum.
      Of course, Kemimoto is more than just mirrors. The brand also produces and sells its own saddlebags for motorcycles, seat bags for ATVs, backpacks, roll cage cargo organizers, and other storage accessories. They also manufacture high-quality whip lights and mounts, UTV cupholders, dome lights, windshields, vehicle covers, and even some riding gear. But high-quality, fairly priced ORV mirrors will always be the company’s specialty.
