2011 Raptor 350 wn't run with petcock in "ON" position, only in "Res" position.

Recommended Posts

My Girlfriend rolled her 2 week old 2011 Raptor 350 coming back from Spooner pass in Lake Tahoe. It rolled with her twice then flipped over a log and landed upside down about 25 yards downhill on rougly 60% grade. It took 2 hours and the help of other riders who stopped to help. On the way home it started to cut out. I discovered it would run with the petcock in the "Res" position. Then it stopped running altogether. I discovered the air intake box full of oil. Cleaned that up, sprayed a little starter fluid in, it tried to start but, wouldn't. Drained execess fuel from carb. sat for a day. Charged battery then fired right up. Spittin and cracklin and back firing. Then smoothed out until I put petcock into "On" position. I haven't owned a bike since the 80's. So learning all over again. Anyone have a suggestion for a fix or what to look for.

p.s. Girlfriend ok. More damage to pride than self. Thank God! Could have turned out really bad.

Check the vaccum line going to the petcock for blockages. The line and /or petcock might have gotten oil in them too. That's where I'd start looking first. Does the petcock look like it might have gotten damaged?

      Hi, All

      I started this project a while ago.. I have decided to make one thread I can continuously update..

      So , here we go. I got this Raptor 80 in really bad condition.. Rear end frozen, Engine toast, tires dry rotted, tons of rust..etc.. They admitted they beat on it very hard.

      Since they do not make these with a drive shaft anymore I decided to restore it from top to bottom..

      These are photos of when I got it home.

      Next up, the tear down..



      First, I needed to tear it down and determine if the rear end was still good... As we all know... That is where it would be cost prohibitive to restore if it is trashed..

      Got it completely stripped down and I lucked out... The rear Drum brake was caked solid inside with dried mud. That was causing the rear end to lock up. Took off the rear brakes and the rear end spun perfectly smooth.

      Once I got it all stripped apart I needed to take the finish off all the parts. I am going to be powder coating the frame and many parts.. Once the finish is off each part it will need to be sandblasted to white metal .. The guy I use for powder coating gives me a hefty discount if I bring the parts to him ready to go.

      You could just sand blast, but that would take a long time to get the finish off. First I used Aircraft Paint Remover.. That stuff is pretty toxic Goggles and Resperator are required. That quickly gets you down to the metal... Then you can sand blast to white metal pretty quickly...


      I had another thread I had started about a problem with the tear down... It has some great info .... here is the link... It is about removing the frame bushings. ....
