1991 Suzuki lt 230 ( carburetor issues )

I recently purchased a lt 230. I knew it had issues but was a clean looking bike.So anyhows.Iam having poor idle ect. When running the engine has no knocks or pings gong on but seem to be have air fuel problems.Almost like it taking in air somewhere and cause high then low revs and slight popping noises.Iam no rocket scientist but did try to troubleshoot the issues.I started with basic airfilter check.Upon inspection the foam airfilter had just crumble by the touch of my fingers.Needless to say its in the garbage now.So next i went into the carb.Had smalls junks of rust sitting in the bottom of bowl.Previous owner said it sat outside for quit some time.Anyhows i check the carb for any clogged fuel and or air passages.All seemed good actually.Now back to when i removed the carb from airbox and cylinder intake.I removed the throttle slide cable from carb and disconnected fuel line from pitcock valve.So next i was getting ready to remove the starter cable from the cap starter plug that screws down into an area on the carb.Needless to say it came loose without have to remove the cap starter plug.So i was like.hmmm???? So i was like what the heck is this cable suppost to hook up to.So i decided to pull up schematics on bikebandit.com.It shows that it hooks to a plunger in the carb there.Well, i never seen no plunger.MISSING..LOL...Could this be my issue? And what does this plunger and manuel cable actually do? I would think without this plunger in place that it could be the air issue i was thinking i was having.Any feedback would be awsome! Thanks

I sorta figured that was a chock.Thanks. But then what is the other plunger assembly that goes in from the side ( black knob? ) which also looks like a choke. And how do the 2 work together. Or are the 2 just two different method options of choking the machine? The side plunger appears to me to almost touch the spring of the starter cable and or other plunger i was refering to in my first post.

I found a link lastnite on the carb.http://sites.google.com/site/suzukilt230svault/help-how-to-s/carb-tuning....very helpful link.I ordered a carb rebuild kit from ebay and ordered a starter plunger (choke part) of bikebandits just this morning. The plunger has to be the problem surely. As of now it runs crappy and engine runs hot or ( lean ). I will get back on my post in about a week and let you all know what happens...Wish me luck! lol..

      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.

      I have been on K&N's website, but cannot seem to find a cross reference for my 2009 Outlander 400 XT EFI air filter. The OEM BRP filter number is 707800264. They (K&N) lists many that look like the original that I am replacing, but it would be awesome if someone has a K&N model number they have installed that has the right fit and function. Any info would be greatly appreciated -Cheers!
