  2. I did a little searching on your carb. The third line on the carb is a vacuum line to create the pulses to drive the pump. I found a youtube video on rejetting your carb that you might want to watch .. He points out the fuel pump vacuum line connection in it .

    2004 Polaris Sportsman 500 Reversed Terminals On Battery

    It’s a bitch but two things have to happen. 1. You must have the air filter on as if the bike was ready to ride. 2. You have to make up a small screw driver to get in to the adjustment spot. I’ve done it I bought a flex driver which is a small flexibile shaft screwdriver. Or make one up.

    *well- nobody has explained to me what I'm looking for when I adjust the carb

    ok so I have never heard this before... haha nobody has ever explained to me HOW to adjust a carb on a bike yet. Thanks! Also, how do you adjust the air screw while the carb is on the bike? I have never been able to do that since the screw comes out the bottom of the carb. but thanks! I knew the engine wont run right if the ratio is off, but I did not know that it would affect rpm....just never put 2 and 2 together

    It’s a 500 so right out of the gate you know 1-3/4 will be the minimum. Start there and adjust out. Keep the idle as lows as possable to keep the bike running. As you adjust the fuel/air mixture screw the bike will rev up as you get better. While this is going on you will have to lower the idle. Keep adjusting until the highest point of reving. That means at some point the engine will not continue to rev higher but start to act up. Once you hit that point you have passed the sweet spot. Back it down and make final adjustments. The highest revs mean the bike is getting the most out of fuel and air.

    new axle is in, new pod is in, everything works good......except the fuel pump. I think @davefrombc is correct about the vacuum line. I think I'm going to bypass it like he suggested (thanks for that suggestion btw!!) I still dont know what tha carb should be adjusted... But first things first... need fuel to the carb haha

    Your opinion on KYMCO atv?

    There is a download of the service manual in the forum's downloads section .

    Your opinion on KYMCO atv?

    Check plug for spark and the carb for fuel. Seafoam won't clean out a plugged jet if that turns out to be the problem. You'd have to take the carb off and clean it thoroughly. No spark is harder to chase down. First check the electrical harness for any loose or corroded/ broken connections.If still no go you'll need a service manual to get the specs on the components , or if you have access to compatible ones to swap out one at time to find the faulty one.

    Picked this up at the end of October (2014). Ran well up till a couple days ago and now won't start. Turns over, but won't catch. It's been a really cold winter. Put some seafoam in but that didnt seem to help. Any thoughts? Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    1997 Kawasaki Bayou 300 2x4 (klf300b) Runs Bad

    Btw, bayou is for officially for sale for $800 first come first serve lol if you read this thread, you know all of it's history as far as I've owned it... massage me privately if interested. I'm thinking the ignition coil is going bad maybe causing a weak spark and that was also causing it to run rich (and after riding the 220, I noticed its a little more sluggish is throwing the power down)

    I'll try to get it looked at... focusing on my sportsman and the 220 I'm working on rn

    That is a great question. It could be that your spark is breaking down at some point and soaking the plug because no or poor spark. Definitely a good possibility. @06kfx440

    1995 Yamaha Timberwolf 250 idle

    I thought the pilot screw (pilot circuit) was the exact thing that controlled idle?? I am confused now

    Your float in the bowl may be getting a little jammed up allowing excess fuel to get into the engin/head thus flooding out the sp. The float has a pivot point where it mounts to the carburetor. Either it’s getting stuck on the way up or the pin that the float pushes up is getting stuck. I know the over flow would show signs of fuel dumping out but it may not be so severe that it’s showing. Also one more thing. The top of that pin has a rubber tip on it. Take a look and maybe replace the pin if needed. Check that the pivot point on the float looks straight and nothing is restricting its travel.

    Had a guy come and drop his bayou off for me to service. While he was here he asked about my bayou. Went to start it and it floods out like it did before (last issue I posted about it before the broken shock) pissed me off pretty bad cause yesterday and the day before it started no problem.....now the guy is probably like what the hecks wrong with this kid- his bike wont even run....though he was a lot nicer than that about it... so all in all I want to resolve this issue now before I get his bike working so that he could test ride mine when he picks his up... This is either a sp issue or a ignition coil issue I'm thinking... Its the 3rd brand new sp the bike has blown since I rebuilt... What do yall think?

    tthanks for info ill let you know how it turns out

    2001 Kawasaki 300 bayou shifter shaft

    Not that hard to do. You'll need to remove the right hand engine cover and the 2 clutches in order to pull it out. There's a few washers and springs you need to watch for so a service manual is needed to make sure everything goes back together correctly. An air impact is helpful getting those clutch nuts off. The shaft and a new cover gasket should be all the parts you'll need. A Kawasaki or Clymer manual walks you through the process.

    for sure … I am going to concentrate on it being mechanically safe and sound first then I get to address all that sun faded pink plastic lol don't think this thing ever met a roof. lot of surface rust to take care of also … but in due time

    That’s a good question. I would refer this to @wanrep He’s got some good info/knowledge on stuff like this. Maybe he can help.

    Cheery is over rated. Reliable is key. I have a ton of inexpensive tricks to make it look great but you have to make sure the mechanical end of it is ok first. So once your past that you can ask away on the aesthetics part. What did you pay if I may ask ? Any luck with getting the numbers to pop on the vin?

    Help Identifying Honda Rancher TRX350TM3

    Me too … that's the only reason I stopped and ask about this one . It seems pretty solid so far , needs some work for sure but I should have a pretty good bike when I finish it up . I cant afford to make it a cherry restoration …. but I'm hoping for a dependable fun to ride restoration at the least . Thanks for all the help and input bud : )

    thanks for the link … I will give it a shot . I got it off an older man that told me 2 dif. years …. he was old so I didn't question it lol he initially called it a 2001 but about ten minutes later he thought it was a 2005 . From the roughness of it I'm leaning closer to the 01 than the 05 but who knows .
