Just recently bought an 05 Rincon 650 and have a problem idling. Whenever i put the quad in drive or reverse it likes to cut off. Does it alot more when its cold but still does it when its warm. Tried turning the idle adjustment screw up but nothing happens.

Also quad has been sitting for about a year, i ran some seafoam through it and new it has new gas 93 octane. Also previous owner had snorkel and hmf pipe installed and a stage 1 dynojet kit put in. But he cut the end of and tore everything out and it is loud as f?*% :shocked:

Any info would be great, Thanks!

Carbs gummed up from stale gas. Pull the carb and give it a GOOD thurough cleanning. And welcome from the Volunteer state.

hook up a timing light, pull the trigger, then put it in drive. see if it still flashes as it is dying out.

S.Hiles,
I agree with Helmut and JK. You might even want to get a rebuild kit for the carb. Also, change the spark plug as plugs do go bad.

Mine is the same way also with timing light on it loses spark at idle and all the way up through rpm range. And it's all in sync with a faint tick coming from the cdi box.
