With......yep...a carb question. I recently became the owner of an 02 zuki LTF250F quadrunner. I'm the second owner with only 136 mi. on the clock, it's about as OG as it gets with everything still original and in perfect shape. Well the other day it started idling fast then slow then fast, you get the idea. Now this isn't my first go around with an atv so I figured the carb needed a good cleaning. I bought a rebuild kit through my local Zuki dealer and went to work, well the bowl was full of trash! Completely disassembled it and cleaned it all out, then blew it all out with air, poked around all the little holes and what not to make sure it was clean. I reassembled it and put it all back together and pulled the choke gave the starter button a tap and vroom! Fired right up! Sweet! Let it idle for a bit turned off the choke and purrs like a kitty, gave her a little throttle......uh oh...bogged out and stalled. Hmm maybe carb not full of fuel. Tap the start button, vroom fires right up, give it a lil throttle, Boggs down and dies. Hmmm now I've search all over this site and tried everything that I found like the fuel valve and intake leaks also check all the lines to the carb but I find nothing. What happened? It was running great other than the idle surging, now it won't rev up. Any ideas? Thanks Kelly. Oh and the plug was wet and black if that helps. Thanks again.

Welcome to QUADCRAZY! Sounds likdtoo much fuel maybe? Wet and black? Like the plug is fouling out. If you take the plug out and clean it, will it fire up?

      Trying to replace the carburetor on my 2003 Bear Tracker 250. Two brand new carbs in a row from different suppliers.   Both leak fuel out over flow and intake as soon as I turn the gas on. Any ideas. Am I doing something wrong?

      I am trying to put a 1994 Suzuki 250 quadrunner back into service. I have it up and running like new but need to replace the plastics as they are brittle and crumbling due to age and sun exposure. I would like to purchase new parts either OEM or aftermarket but have had little luck in finding them. I would even consider used or salvaged parts in serviceable condition. Any help in locating these parts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

      I'm on to the next project. I am trying to put a 1994 Suzuki 250 2X4 quad runner back into service. I am currently going thru the fuel system and am waiting on some parts. In the meantime I have been trying to locate replacement fenders and I'm not having much luck.  The orriginal fenders have become brittle and cracked due to sun and exposure to the elements. Any help on finding replacement fenders, OEM or aftermarket, will be appreciated.
