I've got a 03 300EX and every since I adjusted the valves, it sputters and dies at WOT. Ive since cleaned the carb at least 3x trying to get it right and it hasn't made a difference. Im thinking about just setting the valve out of spec again. Any advise?

If it was tuned when the valves were out of adjustment it is possible the jetting is off now that they are opening like they were designed to be. Depending on how far out of spec they were you just gave it a better intake and better exhaust. More air going through the motor requires more fuel. Unless this quad is all stock and has factory jetting. If thats the case i would bet the carb isnt all the way clean or is just spent and needs replaced. I have personally had to keep cleaning a carb over and over to eventually get it unclogged. I even had it sonicleaned and it still wasnt all the way clean yet.

if you have not changed the jets in the carb, then perhaps, the valves were not adjusted proper. i mess up all the time, so i might learn things proper. :smile, the school of hard knocks, is the only school, that ever teaches,,, ya dont even have ta enroll

So the issue with it dying at WOT seems to have been fixed by moving the clip on the needle all the way to the bottom. Apparently it just needed more fuel after the adjustment. Thanks for all the advise fellas
