Guessing your carb is the problem, sticky float or clogged jet or 2, did you put additive in before it sat or after? After will do you no good!

put additive in before it sat. I'm thinking the additive didn't work and the fact that ethenol(sp) is in the gas now. Thanks

I agree with the guys. they now have ethanol shield. I found it at our local wal- mart store. I don't see where it would help at this time but after you get it running you might want to use it.

What additive did you use. I use sta-bil and it's worked for me. I add it to my gas when ever i fill my container up. I run my lawn mower or what ever I put it in for about 15mins. and it's always been good to go when I go to use it. My quad doesn't get a rest but I do turn the fuel off and let it run till it quits running if it's going to be setting for a few weeks but thats rare.

      I own a 2002 Can-Am Quest 650.
      It will start if you massage the throttle a bit and it will continue to run. BUT if you let go of the throttle and try to let it idle it will always die warm or cold.
      It has Non-Oxy premium gas, a new gapped NGK plug, a new carb (as of today) and fresh fluids. After installing the new carb it runs exactly the same.
       
      I only have a few things that I have observed since the new carb:
      The choke still doesn't do anything. It has a good cable and it is hooked up. It on fully off. There is a cable in the top, front of the engine that splits into two connectors. The connected side is in the photo. The other side has the yellow banded section and is not connected. I do not see anything in range of this connector so I don't know if this is normal or not??? The original carb wasn't really dirty or clogged. I'll use it as a spare. I don't see this cable and connectors listed in the Can-Am shop manual. Looking for some help. I want to ride!
