Hi all, my second post here I got an old Yamaha 88 moto 4 and I have a problem with my overflow hose from the carb. When I put the gas switch to ON a big amount of gas is leaking from the overflow...so I start using my quad with the gas switch to RESERVE wich is also leaking but less than in ON position. I dont ride a lot..but in a week I empty my gas tank. Strange. I never clean my carb because Im new to quad world and dont have the service manual...so I need you point of view. Thanks guys!
Hi Everyone This is my first post and I was wondering if there is anyone who can help me solve a problem I have with my Yamaha Kodiak 400 4x4 Fitted with a Mikuni Carburetor . The year of the quad is around 1998, the reason I am not sure of the date is, there wasn't any paperwork and no details on the frame either. The quad had a bad leak from the carb overflow which indicated that the float needle valve was blocked or passing so I replaced this and put everything back together. The quad ran really well until I took it onto some rough ground to have a ride around, a few hours later the engine started to run really rough as if the engine was flooding. I have removed the carb again and cleaned the needle valve out and the whole of the carb just in case there where any dirt behind it. Engine now runs fine again but fuel has started to run out the carb overflow again. I have tried everything to try and stop the fuel leaking out the overflow but its still happening. My last thoughts where to adjust the float level and its still happening. Has anyone got any thoughts on the problem or could suggest whats causing the fuel leaking out the overflow. Thanks for reading Kevin
Guest posted a topic in Arctic Cat ATV ForumSometimes gas will drip to almost steady flow out of the port in the bottom of the carb bowl. Ive taken the carb apart and bent the float, but still, from time to time, gas pours or just drips out. Any ideas?
