98 Arctic Cat 300 2x4 Carb Question???

Recommended Posts

Several months ago I repaired the carb to my sons 98 300 2x4...

My mechanic cleaned the carb and replaced a needle seat...

$6 part...

My question...

Is there anyway to prime the darn thing?

The high idle gas setting does not do a good job priming the carb for cold starting...

If you let the thing sit for a month or so it is the coldest natured engine I have ever owned...

Ever...

I understand that the newer carbed models came with a primer bulb...

Is there a fix for this issue other than ponying up for a newer carb???

BTW, I filled up the tank with gas and utilized ethanol treatment...

Many thanks for any replies...

      Ok, so got this thing, assembled, and even added acid/assembled the battery with a solid trickle charge and the battery is fine.
      As far as I can tell, I have checked all the fuses I can find, but I have ZERO power to anything. Even the console will not light up when turned to ON.
      Is there some sort of hidden parental/child disconnect or safety switch that I'm not aware of? ANY help would be appreciated.
