2011 350 4WD fuel leaks from carb

Recommended Posts

Bought 2 months ago. Last week it started flooding and dumping fuel. Called dealer, and they can get to it in 60 days. SERIOUSLY! The 4 wheeler is not a pass time toy. It is a tool I use on a ranch, and I dont have the option of waiting 2 months. Have taken carb off; checked the needle and seat. There was a plastic shaving preventing shutoff. Or so I thought. Put it back together and still pours fuel. Adjusted float and still the same. Any help greatly appreciated.

The block has AC70 2000727 if that helps

What r u working on 2011 what!!? Is it leaking from carb or the shutoff? I would start by checking all the fuel lines for a hole or crack or just a loose fit or loose hose clamp.

think my dad and I got it. carb on and off 3 more times adjusting float level. it is working at the moment with nary a drip. My guess is the little plastic shaving was there from assembly all along and it just moved a bit to the side, where it was when I found it. Dont really understand how it worked at all, being so far out of adjustment. Found and fixed another item or 2 during the process. I figure if someone, or a company used todays technology along with quality workmanship (as opposed to crappy workmanship) they would be the only game in town.

thanks to all who have responded. could still use a book, if anyone has a manual I can download Id appreciate it.

      posted a while back - it was running at one point - I have all the plastic shroud off - it's down to frame and engine now
      -fuel pump: when line from petcock is attached, no fuel comes out other side to carb; the line to the carb is open (can blow through it); I thought when I cranked engine that the pump would spit out fuel on other side but it does not; I removed fuel pump and opened it up - diaphragm looks good - but internal areas had lotsa calcification build up - I cleaned this out and dried it good - the clear plastic pieces (?diaphragms) aren't broken - the spring w/ steel ball on end moves freely; am putting it back on tomorrow; but can anyone answer about the pump? isn't it supposed to pump fuel through it... to other side... to carb? puzzling
      -along with fuel pump: I replaced petcock 3 weeks ago (gas tank had rusty fuel in bottom - cleaned it out prior to new petcock); when I turn petcock arrow NOT to on or reserve, fuel comes out of line; when I turn it to on or reserve, fuel doesn't come out; puzzling
      -I don't know what's on back of fuel pump - it's a valve that has a hose coming out of it - looks like it goes to engine/carb - I haven't traced this out yet - what is it?
      -can squirt gas on air filter and engine will run for 2-3 seconds then stop - fuel in top of carb (under diaphragm) does same
      -it likely needs carb rebuild - will get to this - but something isn't allowing fuel to get from fuel pump to carb
      -I THINK it has a mikuni model x carb - diaphragm is ID 26mm  OD 68mm - hard to find inexpensive diaphragm, I guess because it's a model x
      -last thing - I replaced solenoid due to old one clicking; I HAVE to be charging the battery or it won't start/turn over - battery just goes dead; but if charging, it'll turn over nicely; i'm guessing it's a bad battery
      -any help appreciated - I've never owned an ATV before - inherited this beast from grandparent in-law

      Tried to start my 850HL the other and had no spark. Changed the plugs, but while checking for spark noticed not getting fuel either. So no spark and no fuel. ECU? Anyone else have anything like this?

      What the hell does everyone use to pull a flywheel/rotor on a 99 yamaha bear tracker 250? I have looked online and they show 2 or 3 different ones. Finally figured mine out and need to remove the stator rotor to repair the starter gear.it wasnt installed correctly causing my issue of it just spinning the starter
