I will start off by saying hi to everyone because I just joined the forum today. I am not much of a mechanic but I can fix minor issues and follow a schematic. I have an early 90s fourtrax 4 x 4. The problem is that it dies everytime I ride it. It starts really good and idles good and runs good but sporatically dies. Sometimes I can ride for miles and it will be fine then it will just die. Other times it dies every few minutes. I thought at first that I had some debris in the gas tank so I took it off and flushed it out and cleaned the filter but that didnt help. I have had a few backyard mechanics look at it and try various things but to no avail. I am seriously considering sending it to a real mechanic but hate to drop a ton of money on the bike when it may be something I can fix myself.

YOu may have a partially clogged jet also. you will have to remove the carb to check those, you have a main jet and a slow jet.
