Foreman 450 Carburetor

How can I prime the carb which I removed for cleaning? The bladder in the priming pump is deteriorated and you have to buy the whole pump set to replace. Since I've never used the priming pump I would rather not purchase a new one which is between $70 and $90.

Welcome to the forums. I'm not sure I understand your question. Are you saying that you need to prime the carb because you took it off? If so, you don't have to prime the carb just because you took it off. Just put it back on, hook the gas like back up and turn the gas on and the bowl will fill up. Then, just turn the choke on and it should start. If for some reason, you still need to prime it, spray a little gas into the back of the carb and you will get the same results.

By the way, you can buy a new primer pump on Ebay for $24.95. The only purpose that the primer pump serves is to help the ATV start in extremely cold temperatures.

Most 4-wheeler problems are caused by a loose nut connecting the handlebars and the seat!!

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.
