I have a problem with the bike idling properly. A few people told me it was the low speed jet. I bought a new one and a carb kit as well. I've removed everything from the carb so I can remove it from the bike. However, it still seems to be stuck. Is this common? Is it stuck on the gasket that holds it to the manifold? Thats th eonly place its making contact with anything. How do I get it to rel;ease from teh manifold? I dont want to tear anything up.

What kind of 4-wheeler is it? Does the carb clamp into the end of a rubber intake boot?

Sorry, its a 2005 TRX 90. Yes, it clamps into a boot. I already removed the screws from the manifold side and removed the boot. it seems like its stuck with nothing holding it in there.

Are you saying the carb is stuck in the boot or the boot is stuck to the head?

If you've removed all of the bolts, then the gasket or o-ring probably has it stuck. You should be able to take a hammer and jar it a little and it should break loose. It might damage your gasket or 0-ring, but it probably needs replaced anyway. I usually just loosen the clamp on the rubber boot, on both sides of carb and pull and wiggle it out. It might be a little easier the way you are doing it, though.

You want need to hit it too hard with the hammer. Just a quick little tap should do it.

Yeah, it would be nice if they included that intake gasket, because if you are going to be taking your carb off to rebuild it, then you are going to need it.

do I need to scrape it off th eintake with a puddy knife to remove completely? Shoudl I do anything else to prepare for the new gasket? Also, do I just put it on there, or do I glue it?

Yeah, just scrape all of the old gasket off. Be careful that you don't gouge the aluminum with the puddy knife. It's best not to use any sealant on the intake gasket.

If you do end up gouging the aluminum and you think it might leak, you could probably put a thin layer of Hondabond on both sides of the gasket. But I wouldn't use it unless it's absolutely necessary.

Great, thansk for the info.

Now, I'm putting a new slow jet back in. How far should I tighten it up? Obviously not as tight as it will go, correct?

The jets should screw all the way in and tighten up. The only adjustments will be the fuel mixture screw on the bottom of the carb and the idle screw adjustment.

Agree^^^^ FYI you can use 3m weatherstrip adhesive to hold a gasket in place to prevent slipping while you are installing it. I keep a tube in my box and use it quite often.

Are you talking about the yellow emblem adhesive?
