2000 Honda TRX350FE 4X4 - NEED CARB HELP

Recommended Posts

Been sittin 6 months. Put in fresh gas and it started but soon noticed fuel running out on floor. Removed carb and cleaned. Did not see any problem. Remove fuel tank, drain and gas looked clean. Put carb back on and had to keep choke pulled out to run and pops thru carb a little when give throttle. Install aftermarket kit, clean again and it does same thing. I cleaned and used old jet as not sure ones in kit correct. Spark plug does not look fouled. Any direction given will be greatly appreciated. Newbe to ATV but can follow advice and decent mechanic on some stuff.

the little passages inside the carb need to be clear, and an easy way to do it is with a stripped twist tie from a garbage bag. an air compressor would be perfect to get everything out too (with carb cleaner of course). the needle and seat has to be near perfect, too sloppy-> it'll leak and too tight-> it won't flow. cheriah is the carb queen, and a member here. message her and she'll tell you some tricks too.

Thanks for the quick reply. I cleaned with carb cleaner and compressed air. I will try the small wire in a few days when I can work on it again. One guy suggested it might be a stuck valve. What are your thoughts on this?

If it still leaks past the float needle, take a Q-Tip with some brass polish or something like crest toothpaste, put the Q-Tip in your cordless drill and lightly polish float valve seat for about 45-60 seconds. Use carb cleaner and spray off polish and use compressed air to get it all out. I have done this on carbs that looked ready for the trash.

      I traded my dirt bike for a 2000 arctic cat 500 semi automatic. when i went to go pick it up the guy said it didn't get spark, so i thought it was going to be something simple like a coil. well it wasn't. first thing i did was take all the plastics off to get easy asses to every thing. so i bought a brand new battery for it seeing if it got power, it didn't. the dash wouldn't light up neither would the lights, so then i tried to see if the starter worked it didn't so i jumped the solenoid and the starter started turning over the motor. so i bought a new starter solenoid, when i installed it the electric start still wouldn't work , so i bought a new kill switch and starter switch that goes on the handle bars, when i installed it, the electric start still wouldn't work. so then i went to see if i could get spark by pull starting it, i didn't get any spark, so i bought a new spark plug, and guess what, still no spark, so then i bought a new coil for it to see if that would fix it. so i installed the new coil and guess what no spark still and still no power to the dash. so to sum it up i'm not getting any power any where to the four wheeler. so i cleaned all the leads and plugs and still nothing. so then yesterday i took the wiring apart to see if their was any frayed wires, and no their wasn't. does any one have any ideas what this could be i'm up for anything. also if any one knows how to bypass all the wiring just to get it to start i open to that to, or if someone knows where  i can get a wiring diagram.

      i have recently purchased a yamaha kodiak ultramatic 400cc. it is used and sat outside for a long time. i have done a lot of work on it and got it to run sort of. when i try to start it, it will start and run for a little bit then it will die, the time it runs varies. it has a new cdi, spark plug, and stator. most of the time it wont even start it just cranks over. there was one time that it started up right away and ran perfectly but the next time i tryed it wouldnt start. before that one time every time it started and ran it had a popping sound. i cant figure out why it wont run. any help would be muchly appreciated! thanks!

      I bought a Honda 250sx 1986 but the exhaust is broken. Apparently it's not possible to order a new one. I checked to order one on others compagny but there's noting.
      Do you know which exhaust it's possible to install. Is there a company who sold an exaust to fit on my 250sx.
      Sorry for my english
      Thank you

      Im working on a old 1987 honda 125 4 wheeler in the school shop. It will start by getting pulled by another 4 wheeler but wont start with the pull start or Electric Start. When you pull start it it tries to start but when you try the electric start it just turns over but doesnt even act like it wants to start. The spark plug is dry and it shoots fuel out of the back(air filter side) of the carb. Weve had the carb off twice and it is complety clean. What are some things we can try?
