'98 fourtrax 300 carb trouble
New to the forum here and have a problem. My 98 fourtrax hadnt been ridden in a month or more and after i charged the battery back up, the thing would not start. So, i take off the carb, take it all a part, blow all the fuel and vaccum lines clear, cleaned up the float and needle valve. The needle valve was the problem for the starting. Now it starts fine but i am forced to choke it in order for it to keep running under idle. Under about half throttle, the engine hesitates some, but under full throttle there is not problem whatsoever. I have a feeling I messed up something with the rubber piece that connects to the top of the cylindrical plastic vaccum piece in the center of the carb. I am stumped because Ive taken off the carb 3 times now and cleaned it out and it still has problems. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
