2003 Yamaha Beartracker Carb Help


Recommended Posts

I have an 03 250 beartracker that ran great before stored for the winter. I put the battery in yesterday pulled the choke pumped the gas it started right up. Then it stalled out and wouldn't start no matter what I did. I pulled the plug thinking it was flooded and it was dry. I gave it a shot of starter fluid in the air box and it started up and run until the fluid burned out. I did this a couple times until it ran on its own. It ran great but the gas poured out the over flow tube while it was running so I shut it off. The gas contimued to run out the tube while off. It didn't stop leaking gas until I turned the fuel valve off. This morning I turned the gas valve back on and the gas started pouring out again without even being started. I'm thinking something is stuck open in the carb and I'm just hoping someone might know what it is before I tear into it. Thanks for any help.

I had the same problem on a Kodiak 450 I used to own. The issue was that after the quad sat for a bit, the float pin became corroded and stuck, causing the float to get stuck up, cutting off the fuel. Take the carb bowl off and see if that float moves freely.
