1995 Yamaha Timberwolf 250 flooding and gas tank cleaning

Recommended Posts

Okay I my ride runs but when I load it in the truck or go up a hill it will flood out and not want to start again. Before I go and spend a lot on a new carb I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on this. Also like a big dummy when I bought it used and it had sit for a while I did not clean the fuel tank out and now im going to pull it off and clean it and was wondering also if anyone had any suggestions on what would be something good to clean it with. I have read to use acetone and then was told to use alcohol. Any help would be highly appreciated.

I'm not sure if I can help. when the frontend of a motorcycle or quad is lifted in the air while loading on a truck if it's at a steep angle gas will run out and onto the ground. If your not seeing this with your quad I would say something could be stopped up and the fuel is flooding out your carb because it has no where to go or it could be a float sticking. There are people on here that knows alot more than me on QC I'm sure someone will be able to help you. As far as cleaning the carb I would use carb cleaner it's worked for years. Good luck and let us know what u find out.

      Hey guys, figure you guys would have some helpful direction or answers.
      So, 05 Sportsman 700 carb, new carb, fuel pump, new plugs, new air filter, new everything I can think of that is usually the running issues. Starts up fine, seems to run fine, but if under load, two people, or even one person, up a hill, or pulling a drag chain for the driveway, it starts to cut out and sputters and loses all power, until I back off on the throttle and just barely try to let itself catch itself and then I can take off again.
      I am going crazy trying to figure this thing out. Other than that, the quad runs great. Parents bought bran new, just used around the property, 5000 miles on it. Any ideas???

      Hi, I'm a new member
      Just bought a used 08 350 raptor with about 5 hours on it ( very clean ). Started fine when we got it. Now after a few mods (bumper, skid plates, air filter) Now will not start unless you pull in the clutch. I've checked just about everything and also checked that there is no pinched wires. Anybody have any ideas?:bangheadc: Thanks, Dave

      Bulldog truck bed ATV carrier - Haul 2 ATV’s with a short bed truck and tow a trailer! 
      I am selling my Bulldog truck bed ATV carrier for $750. This rack slides into the back of a short bed (6.5') or long bed truck and allows you to rear load and haul 2 full size ATV's, and tow a bumper-pull travel trailer at the same time. I purchased the rack about 10 years ago from a dealer in Eugene, OR. When stored it has always been covered with a tarp. Now we only have one ATV which I carry in the truck bed so I no longer need the rack. This rack is stoutly built and all welded together, unlike other flimsy carriers currently on the market. Bulldog Manufacturing out of Marysvale Utah quit making them about 5 years ago. It includes two 12 ft. aluminum folding ramps that store under the ATV's. Also included are four heavy duty ratchet tie downs for each corner of the truck bed, and six over the wheel tie downs to secure two ATV’s to the rack. The measurements of the rack are:
      Base – base of rack measures 73" long, 47" wide, and 23” tall.
      Deck – deck of rack measures 80” long and 102” wide.
      My name is George and I am located east of the Sacramento CA area, pick up only.  If you’re interested or have any questions, please text me or call me at 916-826-5587.  Thanks!

      Does anyone have a redcat 250 or falcon 250cc that they can share where the two vacuum lines on the carburetor that you run antifreeze through I honestly have no idea where the lines are suppose to go to circulate the antifreeze. 
       
      Any help is greatly appreciated.

      Recently I noticed gas leaking from under the gas tank on my 2005 250 2x4. As I looked closer it appears to be leaking from the shut off valve under the tank. It's the valve with the handle that can be turned to open, close or reserve. Can this part be replaced? Thank you.

      Just bought (Tue. evening) an '89 Suzuki 250 4wd that has been sitting out the last 5 yrs. It's complete, including the shift knobs, battery cover, and headlights. It has the optional cooling fan on it (probly stuck - didn't check), and the engine isn't locked up. Plastic looks good and isnt cracked. Racks aren't bent up. Shift lever works, the foot brake moves (needs oil - have to pull it up by hand), and there's black oil and no water in the engine sight glass. Guy was asking $125 and gladly took $100 for it. Anxious to get started on bringing it back to life. Been wanting one of these for years. As soon as I can get to it (working on a junky "Jackel" right now - Chinese Yamaha Timberwolf). I'm going to pull the tank off it and clean it, clean & possibly rebuild carb, put in new plug, and a battery, then see what happens. If nothing, will keep going until it runs. Feel free to respond if you want to, I'm mainly just excited and wanted to tell somebody.

      I just bought two 1985 TRX250's from my father-in-law. One runs great, the other not so much. The one is having issues with the shifter. The shifter seems to be resting lower than normal. When I press the shifter downward, it just pops back up. Any thougjts as to what the issue might be?
