you are getting too much air somehow, check for proper fuel flow in lines and tank screen, intake boot for air leaks and check airboxand vacuum lines. You can also adjust your fuel screw. Start there.....:wink:

Your Twinpeaks if I'm right is a joint build with Kawasaki it should have the same v-twin motor as the Prairie. On the right side of your quad look at your intakes their is a vacum port on each 1 make sure they are blocked off with vacum caps check all vacum hoses check fuel lines for cracks I agree Cheriah your sucking air an not fuel & the choke lets it get more fuel. Did you sync the carbs after removing & cleaning them. Their is an adjustment screw on the left side of the quad for that adjustment but you need a synchronize tool or you can make your own. The 2 vacum ports I was saying to check for vacum caps is where you hook up the sync tool. Your air/fuel mixture screws are on the right side those should be 2.5 to 3 turns out from closed. Is the quad popping thru the carbs or backfiring out the exhuast?

Your carbs may be out of sync. You can do a search on how to sync the carbs and how to make a homemade tool for doing the job. I think it was rattle bars I found the info on synchronizing the carbs. May be something for you to check into if there out of sync it can have a big effect on how the quad will run and its not good for the motor.

Pull the main jets and emulsifier tubes and make sure all the little holes are clear and can see light through them. Same thing with the pilot jet. This should clear it up if you have not modded your airbox to allow more air.

Also the diaphragms have a small brass rice jet at the top on the sealing side and the rubber could have a tear that wont allow the slide to open. You can check this by pulling the filter off and making sure they open at the same time.

      So here’s a question. I have seen a few members that have recently purchased a used bike.   Also a HUGE amount of so called new members who have purchased a used bike and have come here “just here for a manual”.
      Some have been disappointed with the bikes and or knew they were getting a broken bike with some mechanical  experience thinking hey I can fix it.   So here’s my take on buying a used bike. Anyone who has followed some of mine and other members posts about what to look for when buying a used bike here’s a few pointers on what to look for. 
      1. I always check the oil and look for moisture, metal shavings and color. 
      2. Feel the compression or take a compression tester with you. 
      3. Check for spark (if the bikes not running)
      4. Take a small jumper pack to verify that the starter cycle works and the bike cranks.
      5. Look for bent or cracked frame/welding that was done on the frame from maybe a wreck.
      5. Mismatch plastics by looking under neath.  
      7. Bolts on the engine/frame that look like they are stripped from someone taking the bike apart. 
      8. Any kind of scilicone or gasket adhesive that was used on a cover plate or engine seem where the engine was taken apart.  
      9. Patches on the exhaust pipes with sheet metal or jb weld patch material.  
      10. Wiring messes on the harness like bundles of tape where the harness was opened up and taped up  for an after market device or just plain butchered up.  
      11. Put the bike in gear (running or not) and roll the bike back and forth to see that the gears work and you feel resistance like the engine is trying to spin while pushing it forward as if you were push starting it   
      12. I keep a vin# decoder website on my phone as a favorite to double check the year of the bike .
      All though nothing is fool proof these tips will help you along while buying a used bike. Not only that but  it will help you negotiate a fair price for a bike that may have one of the above problems.  
      I have minimized this entire process down to about 15 mins. I buy all the time so I don’t expect you to do the same or have a compression tester etc but use some of these tips when buying and go into the purchase with confidence! 
      I would like to hear anyone else that has any input on buying a bike and what to  look for!

      I had the local garage change the oil and filter in my machine and ever since they changed it there has been an oil leak. Taken it back several times and they can't figure out the problem.

      I have a 2000 Arctic Cat 300 4 wheeler. I have been having some carburetor issues. So i bought a new carb. Now I'm having these issues. The unit will start and idle fine, when i go to accelerate it wants to cut off. So i checked to make sure it was getting gas and the fuel filter will be full of gas and then once the carb opens the filter drains down and will not refill quick enough to run. So i checked to make sure gas was flowing to the filter and it is flowing fine through the line. I remove the filter and run the gas line directly to the carb and the engine idle fine and then it will run good as i ride it for about 10 minutes then it will start with the same issues again i cannot accelerate enough to move the 4 wheeler. Every time i accelerate the unit will cut off. What is wrong with this thing. My 400 Arctic Cat is doing the same thing except it will backfire, I'm lost i have tried everything i know to do, what am i missing here. Thanks for your help

      I just purchased a 2005 Suzuki King Quad from Craigslist, it's in excellent conditions but me and my dad are new to ATV's, were first time owners. I wanted to see if someone could tell me the steps into changing the oil on the ATV and what kind of filter I am supposed to buy and also the recommended oil type/brand.
      And if you could give me any kind of tips to keep the ATV long lasting and what other things I need to change regularly rather than just an oil change, that would be great too.
      The ATV we purchased is the 4x4.
      Thank You!

      Hi there, i've been trying once in a while for the last couple weeks to remove the fill plug on the transmission of my 2011 Polaris Sportsman 500.  The reason i try to get the fill plug out first is so that i can fill if it by any chance the the drain plug does come out i can refill it with oil.   The allen socket and wrench both keep slipping inside the bolt head, so what advice does anyone have?    Also if nothing works, can you think of any reason not to tip it over and refill it through the drain plug?    Thanks.

      Was using the quad the other day to shuttle wood from my pickup to my wood pile.  When the job was done I turned off the Quad and heard a bit of a racket from the front end.  When I got down underneath the sound seemed to be coming from the fan housing.  fan was moving in spurts and not quickly... much like a computer case fan that's had it's day.  What I know.
      Temp sensor is ok, as the fan tries to activate fan is getting some voltage as it is attempting to spin.  When I first bought it used I tested the fan direct to battery and it was fine. The fan was working ok even not direct wired as I went on a couple of rides and when stopped and idling the fan did run Seems to be free spinning with my finger read up in the manual and they require me to drop the rad.  now I'm not opposed to that as the rad has some damaged areas I want to try and straighten out.  But if I can get the fan working without, I can leave the rad as it is until next year.
      Fan assembly is about 300 bills, any work arounds or alternatives?  I even thought large computer case brushless fan.  smaller ones are about $7 larger ones better quality probably far below the 300.  They run standard 12v DC.
      Anything I should be doing before dropping the rad... other than check for obstructions even though it seems to spin, and trying to hardwire it to the battery again for a test to see if it acts the same?

      I'm wanting to run Shell Rotella T6 synthetic in the 700 Griz but I can only find it in either 0W-40 or 5W-40 weights, and the manual says it's ok to use everything BUT those weights...5W-30, 10W-30, 10W-40, 15W-40, 20W-40 and 20W-50.
      Would it be ok to use the Rotella 5W-40 or do I need to stick to what's specified in the manual?
