i have a 1985 trx 250 utility quad and it runs great for about a half an hour or so and then it just dies on me. I let it sit for a few minutes then it will start again and i have to choke it to get it started even after it is warmed up. I have put a complete carb kit in and it still is acting up. any suggestions at this point would be appreciated.

Make sure the cut off valve on the gas tank isn't about stopped up. Check the screen in the bowl on the cut off valve. Make sure the gas hose to the carb isn't stopped up. If none of these things are the problem, then I would say your carb is stopped up somewhere. Did you clean out all of the passageways in the carb body when you installed the carb kit?

yep..sounds like gas isn't filling the carb up right..or it's not getting through the jets..orrrrrrrr..the choke maybe messing up..kinda doubt that part though.

troubles gone

I cleaned the fuel shutoff out and the screen on the inlet. also removed the tank and flushed it out well. reassembled everything and it runs great and longer than 20 minutes. Thanks for the help.
