If you want to get it working, PM me your address and I'll see if I can pull a choke lever off one of these and send it to you.
Sent.

Still sounds like I need to do the rebuild.... and I will.

@shadetree - before i go to ebay and buy the wrong ish to rebuild the carb, what online vendor source should I place the order with?

But you guys have convinced me to step out on the water. I'm gonna try it! It will probably be a week or so but I'm going to do it. I'll report back here if I run into some issues.

Speaking of issues, when i bought my ATV years ago, the place on the handlebars that controls the choke cable was broken off. Where can I find a replacement?

When u go to rebuild the carb, IF u have any issues, shoot me a PM & Iíll send u my number. Iíll gladly help u out. A 300 carb is really simple. Itís like jumping off the Skytower in Vegas. Ur all nervous before u jump, but when u do, u realize how awesome it was!

Choke lever is on the way. They are still available from Honda, but are about $10, and I have several 350 Fourtrax/ 350D Foremans here that had the same lever/ part number on them and are too far gone to fix.

Let us know how it does with the rebuilt carb.
