  1. Well it's been several day and I finally had a chance to get the original carb back on after I cleaned it. It starts right up better than before but now I get what sounds like a misfire on one cylinder and I know there's only one cylinder to start with so does or has anyone ever had this problem and is there a way to take care of the problem? By the way I did take the plug out and clean it and also when I had the other carburetor on it wouldn't miss just buck, cough, and spit when I tried to add power.
  2. Also there is a brass slotted head screw I believe on the bottom of the carb., try turning it all the way in (keep track of how many turns) and then back it out 2 3/8-2 1/2 turns out for starters.
  3. There should be a thumb screw on the carb to adjust your idle, might try that and see if it helps.
  4. I'm in the process of cleaning my original carb right now as like I've said before I have had two Zoom Zoom carburetor's and nether one would work. They seem to stall out when you try to give it gas, pops, bangs, stutters, etc. and then if you keep feathering it, it might finally take off. I'm not a fan of Zoom Zoom to say the least. I didn't have any problem with the Co. in replacing the carburetor it's just that they don't work the way they should.
  5. Thanks for the reply. One other question that I forgot was do you know if the jets, etc. from the Mikiuni will fit in the Zoom Zoom carb. or do they have their own specks.?
  6. I have a 96 Yamaha Big Bear 2x4 with a 350 engine and have replaced the original carburetor with a Zoom Zoom version twice to no avail. I am thinking about rebuilding my original carb. and was wondering if the same mikiuni jets that you would use for a snowmobile will work in the ATV or are they different? Thanks

  8. OK where on the carburetor should I look for the screen? I checked the break down on the carb. and couldn't find anywhere where it showed a screen or listed it in the parts inventory.
  9. I have a 96 Yamaha Big Bear 350 2x4 which up till yesterday was running ok. However out of the blue as I was going through the field it started missing if you tried to go over half throttle. It will start and run up to about half throttle and then it starts to miss. I changed to a new spark plug thinking it maybe had some carbon buildup but that didn't help. I put a new filter on it this spring as I do each spring but it seems more like something electrical in nature. Anny ideas? Thanks
