there is a little metal tab on the needle hook up. if you tip the carb upside down and measure from the outer flange of the carb to the top of the float, should be 1/2" give or take. i had trouble with mine too, ripped it apart 8 times or more before i got it right ,,,

Hey... I might break your record of ripping it apart when its all said and done :biggrin:

here is an update... I am getting closer, it just barely leaks now out of the drain line.. so closer i reckon... It was not idleing at all.. till I messed with the needle.. now it takes off like its full throttle what would cause that to happen? Maybe the thottle cable needs to be adjusted?...

I was reading in the diagram for these atvs... I am thinking its called the pilot jet as far as i can tell by the diagram looks more like it anyways then the other things in the diagram, I am not familiar with the names of these parts though.... but anyways if it is the pilot jet it has a small spring on it and a small washer and a small 0-ring rubber... and it screws into the bottom beside the bowl it is not in the bowl though just beside it.. takes a straight small screw driver to turn it... Anyways from what i was reading in the parts manual.. it says to be sure you count how far it was turned out before you remove it.... well I did not know that till now...lol..... I am not a atv mechanic ... do you have any ideal about this.. as far as how far it turns out when tight?

Pilot jet controls your idle to 1/4 throttle sound like your talkin about A/F screw ( air fuel mixture ) Turn it all the way in and back out 2 1/2 turns or so and see if that makes any difference !

      I just got a 1991 Yamaha Moto 4 for my son and I am looking for a service repair manual. I know that the timing chain needs replaced.
    • By alexcross324
      Hi all, I try to find this manual in the threads but you have a lot of stock here
      Cannot find this particular manual.
      I found it for YFM200 but not sure if they are the same.
      Thanks if you could help me with that.
      Im new here so if I did something wrong, please tell me.

      hey I'm dave westfall I'm new I just became an official member of this site a few minutes ago. Ive been crazy about quads and bikes since I was about 3 and ive always done my home work on them figuratively speaking. I would say for comparison to the common man that I am pretty knowledgeable about them. its been my passion about most of my life. I love talking about quads and bikes so if anyone out there would like to talk with me about mechanical subjects or about person experiences while riding or just shoot the breeze please feel free to chat with me. I'm looking forward to it.

      This is my 1st atv project... I'm use to trucks.
      I have replaced both fuel lines and it's not leaking from there anymore. I cleaned out carb and it's not leaking from there. Nowhere round hose's and carb are wet...it looks like it's leaking from bottom of atv... I'm baffled. I hope someone can help

      Living in dirty jersey. Finding riding places is tough. Lived in the pines for some years. Had 3 atvs. Timberwolf, big bear and a 300ex. All great quads. Sold them and am living in hunterdon county now. Going to pick another big bear tomorrow and am completely stoked. Oh yeah thanks for the add.

      This is a good question asked by @Johnny Chancellor. I put it in a new topic so it does not get lost.  We all know we need a cdi box but I bet a lot of the members here don’t know how it works. This is a good explanation of a cdi box including what it does, how it works and what “cdi” stands for. 
      Ive posted two links here. Feel free to add to the list!

      I like to ride in wooded and grassy areas. It takes my mind off the everyday routines and helps me deal with my father's cancer. Also gives me a reason to get involved with forums like this one.
