  4. it sure was for me i bought a clymer service manual when i first bought this atv first one for me,but there not that good nothing in there about this ptoblem the pictures are so black hard to see i know ive had transmission apart to put in starter clutch drive,thank god for you guys help i think suzuki isnt the best pilot screw under carb cannot adjust unless carb off. i bought it because of suppension and supper low.didnt know suzuki robs you on part prices thanks again every one
  5. i want to thank every one for there advice i tried all if i hadnt did that before a member shane meguffie was right on checking voltage it was 17 i put on new one 14.4 volts ran ok except carb needs proper adjusting and i will be glad to take all advice you guys sure helped me out. i never could take to a dealer because of cost suzuki atv parts ar way over priced i ran into that on a wheel cyl. suzuki wanted about %50.00 a suzuki truck same wheel cyl. %10.00 at amazon,and the area i live in the dealers are aragent

  7. thanks i will try that the thing is it never did that before since i bought it i rebuilt the carb at least 5 or 6 times finally bought a different new carb from a place that could get a aftermarket one it ran great for a year and a half then it would start this i would work the throttle it would straghten out but now it wont . the one thing i noticed was that neddle with the groves is a 1[8 in longer then in a kit ive even tried different kits all have the shorter needle iam 79 was a heavy equipment mechanic many years figured i could fix about anything but not this ILL TRY WHAT YOU SAID AND THANKS
