    I have a 400ex that's backfiring on deceleration. Initially i thought it might be running lean but then I noticed it blowing a bit of black smoke on full throttle. This made me think it's rich. The backfiring isn't very bad but its definitely noticable. I also noticed it bogging a little in...

    This is one of those things that's so simple that people tend to gloss over it. Even D-Ray's videos only spend all of about 3-5 seconds as if it's just a given - so I'm posting my guide here. My experience is with a 1988 FourTrax 300 4x4 and 2000 FourTrax 400 2x4, but I imagine most Hondas are...

    I have been working on this Atc 200s and it just won't keep running right. I've completely went through the carb piece by piece and cleaned them, ran some gas through the tank to make sure nothing was in it, and messed with adjustments and throttle. When I run the machine, it runs great for a...

    Hi, I recently did a pretty big build last weekend. We did a 440 kit with 10.5-1 compression, stage 3 hot cams, slight porting, full yoshimura exhaust, and no air box lid. Only trouble I’ve ran into so far is the jets. I just bought a 180/185 main and 42 pilot. The carburetor is stock. Should...

    Hey y’all, so I went riding this last weekend and halfway threw the riding all day I started only getting 1/4 to 1/2 throttle and if I went full throttle it’d start bogging and spitting, (idk how I made it up those muddy hills😅) but anyways so I took apart the carburetor started cleaning it...
  8. Repair & Maintenance
    I have taken the carb off twice to clean all the jets and blow it all out with carb cleaner and compressed air. I drained and flushed the fuel tank and line. I have replaced the plug and air filter. Since I discovered a huge nest in the air box, I also did a compression test and it was 180. It...

    hey guys looking for a carburetor for my 400ex and I my two opinions are a 04-05 Trx450r carb or a lectron and I was wondering what carb would have a better throttle response? I know the lectron doesn’t have a accelerator pump so I didn’t know how the throttle response would be. Thanks for the help

I have a box of parts from a 185(s) it connsists of a chain, muffler, rubber washers, bolts to mount it, other random parts I cannot identify. The engine has no electrical stuff other than a 3 prong...

    ‘00 TRX400EX cannot figure out what the carb’s issue is. Cleaned thoroughly, tried moving jet needle position, adjusting pilot, etc... Upon starting, take off is rough. Cutting in and out, until second gear; then it’s actually able to get gas~then in third, it’s fine. Smooth and not temperamental🙄

    New account here. Got an 02 Honda rancher that has carburetor problems and need some help. I rebuilt the carb with a new kit jets, gasket and needle. When I put the carb on the bike by itself and turn on the gas the bike will crank up fine. So I continue to reassemble the carb and screw in the...

    1999 Honda 300 FOURTRAX. Carb was replaced (supposedly) before I bought it last year. Runs great. Just doesn’t have great idling. Also fuel in air box anytime it sits for too long (with fuel on) or is ridden too hard. Any suggestions?

    Hey guys, I recently bought a Chinese carb for my 1984 atc200s as the float was fecked in my OEM one. So after installing the new PZ27 carb it started leaking from the bottom nipple. So I replaced the jets with the OEM ones but it still leaked. So once again I took it off and this time I thought...

    Hi all. Newbie here to the forum and ATVs in general. I just picked up a 86 TRX350 barn-find that last ran 6 years ago or there about. Replaced the battery, cleaned/re-gapped the plug and drained the old gas for new. She fired up almost immediately. The mechanics appear to be sound but the...

    I just put an oem carb on and I can’t get it to idle. It either races or it idles ok for about 3 seconds then wants to shut off. The throttle cartridge (I don’t know the right term) has ridges so I’m assuming this can’t help. Any suggestions?
