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...

      Hi, I have one of the very first Rincons. Recently after sitting for a while, a few months, it will start but not idle.
      I took the carb off and cleaned the jets, but they seemed clean. I have tried adjusting the throttle stop idle but it still stalls.
      I absolutely do not like CV carbs and I don't know much about them, but what else could this be? If not clogged jets there's so many hoses and tubes on this thing and wires and sensors I don't know where to begin.

      has anyone tried these cheap carbs from china? the original carburetor has been rebuilt by a shop right before i bought this quad and i think the float is shot the work done was way sub par... the price of the seal kit was as much as the whole carb... i have used the china 150cc engines with no problems... and have used the harbor freight 212cc engines on mini bikes.. so im hoping to hear so one has used them on this model with ease.... if no one replies i will update in a day or 2 i got the carb it looks very well made. has the carb sencer and warmer all ready installed..

      Hi all  My sportsman 800 starts and runs fine but the idle is too low so it won't stay running even when it is all warmed up.  I know there has to be an easy adjustment to this but I cannot find it in the owners manual.  Anyone know how to adjust?  Thanks

      I most have a rare ATV, because I can not find a service manual without paying money to Kawasaki.  It's a 2005 Prairie 360 2x4.   4x4 manuals are all over the place, but nothing for a 2x4 .  Heck, Bike Bandit doesn't even list parts for a 2x4.   Any suggestions besides paying Kawa.  My machine is in limp mode and I've yet to find an applicable video or even procedure.

      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.
