Exclamation Carb Adjustment Help

I have a 1986 Honda trx200sx that i just bought a new carb for and if i hit the gas hard on it the bike either bogs or dies out completely (mostly dies). The only way it will move is if you VERY slowly get on the gas and then after about a quarter throttle you can pin it. I am almost 100% sure i need to adjust my jetting in my carb and just don't know whether to go with bigger or smaller jets, or which jet to change. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Have you tried adjusting the air/fuel mixture? If it's the correct carb and your ATV is stock, you shouldn't need to change the jets. I would look at the jets in the old carb and see if they're the same size as the jets in the new carb.

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.
