1996 300FW. Its in great shape, has been running perfect. I was using it today as it will be used, with a small wagon, picking up sticks to get ready for the first lawn mowing. Finished up and decided to race it around the yard, dog likes to chase it. Well, it was running fine when all of a sudden it loses power, like its out of gas, (its not). Idles fine but when given even very light throttle it sputters and quits or almost quits. If I give it some choke when its starting to quit it will keep running. Barely got it in the garage. Starts right back up and idles perfect but any kind of throttle and it sputters or dies.
Carb rebuild? This carb has never been rebuilt. I have the kit to do it. ATV has seen little use and has been sitting the last 3-4 years without being started. I've already cleaned the tank, no rust and replaced the fuel strainer in the petcock. It has been running perfect but thats probably for a combined 1/2 hour of running time since I cleaned it up.
I'm thinking the carb needs to be rebuilt but thought I'd ask you guru's first!
