Check the idle screw, someone might have turned it all the way out.

It might still have some debris in the idle circuit. Sometimes, if they're real dirty, it's hard to get them clean.

You can buy cans of carb cleaner at an auto parts store that you can soak the carb in. I can't remember the name of it, but it comes in a 1 gallon can. Make sure you take all the rubber pieces out of the carb before soaking it.

Here is a link to a good article about cleaning carbs. It is directed towards motorcycle carbs, but ATV carbs will be basically the same.

Just make sure you put the piston on TDC on the compression stroke and adjust the valves when the engine is cold. Here are the instructions for adjusting the valve clearance on the Fourtrax 300. It will be almost exactly the same procedure on the Fourtrax 250 except the clearance may be a little different. I don't have a repair manual for the 250, so I don't know what the clearance for the 250 is supposed to be.
