2003 Yamaha Raptor 660 Backfiring

Hello

I have a Yahama Raptor 660 2003. I bought from my friend it wasn't working when i bought it. All I did was take the carb out and cleaned it, then took the two bowels out and cleaned that. Once I did that then it started. But when you rev it up it back fires and sounds like it has a hard time keeping up, sounds like its going to die. but it sounds fine when at idling. Kinda of wondering if the carb needs to be rebuilt or if there's something elese wrong. If anyone can help that would be great. Thanks for your time.

Sounds like it's fuel starved. Has it ever been jetted before? Some carbs get corroded inside around the float pin needle, causing the float to not operate quick enough. Pull the carb bowl off and tap that float to make sure it moves freely.

I'm going to rebuild the carb to see what happens. On the brakes there is a wire that is broken. Looks like it clips in there I put it back in it doesn't really do anything. I'll let you know what happens after i rebuild the carb Thanks for you help

I already know that everything is is working or it wouldn't start up on the choke. I'm pretty sure it is the carb being gummed up and not adjust right, its been sitting for a at least 8 months. plus the carb is not in a easy place to work on, its kinda of in there. Also I was thinking of rebuilding it myself but ive really never done it. What screws you talking about? the air/fuel mixture? I was just thinking if i got it rebuilt then i know everything is working in the carb.

I got my carb back and I put it back, the thing runs good nice sound. I do have a brake safety switch on order, I learned that mine was missing. which is werid cause I was riding it right after i got the carb then 10 mins later it wouldn't work right. I just want to say thanks for your guys help. you pointed me in the right direction. Thanks again you guys

P.S. redneckyankee your fuel problem could it be the gas cap. Cause like mine its gravity feed in and if it can't breath its going to restricted the flow of gas getting to the carb when the gas gets lower correct?
