Default LT 50 Restrictor Plate

Ok, maybe its just me, but I just removed the intake restrictor plate, and I wasn't impressed, either was my boy. I was expecting a noticeable difference, and I didn't get it.

You need to do more than that! Have you removed the sleeve in the carb slide? Does the carb open all the way? What about the exhaust restrictor? Have you replaced the air cleaner? How about jetting?

I removed the exhaust restrictor, but the other stuff no. I'm open to all advise though. I have not found an aftermarket air cleaner, and I don't know what to rejet it to, and where can I find the sleeve in the carb slide. I'll go do it now. just tell me how

I believe the LTA 50 only has the one speed restictor. It is a washer that restricts exhaust. I know the LT 80 has both the washer as well as a carb restrictor. My son got his first quad (LTA50) this past christmas, but has already moved up to the Kawasaki KFX80 (Suzuki LT80). It seems to be a great quad for his riding skill level.

Default Re: LT 50 Restrictor Plate \"Raptor720 \"

Raptor720,
I've read most of your replies on the little 50's (very good job)and I've got a question. I've got an '03 KFX-50, removed the exhaust and carb tube restrictor. I took the carb loose this p.m. and took the bowl off. I did not see the stacked jet that you spoke of, looked on the web site and could not make heads or tails. What about the carb slide sleeve? What is the rubber sleeve on the main jet for?
Thanks in advance for any information..

After pulling the intake manifold restrictor out, my son's LT50A ran very lean. So lean that there were small bits of aluminum balls on the plug (from the piston). Oddly enough, I couldn't hear it detonating, and the plug was always a light brown color.

I tried pulling the main jet and it was just pig-rich. Even with the air filter and exhaust "drain" plug removed.

I went out and found some numbered drill bits, but was unsuccessful in achieving the right jetting.

The OEM main is a 55, and my local Yamaha dealer found me a 65 and 70 main. I drilled a few 1/4" holes in the airbox cap, and it runs great with the 70. The downside is the extra intake noise, I think it just might be louder than the exhaust.

After getting around to removing the oil injection and replacing the muffler, I'd like to fabricate a real airbox. An open element would easily drown out in some of the larger puddles he likes going through (it already does sometimes).

Default Re: LT 50 Restrictor Plate

Raptor720,
I would love to have any information on modifications & aftermarket supplies for the LT50. My 7 year old son has one and we got tired of pushing him everywhere we ride, so we bought him a Raptor 80. I would love to see him back on the 50 as he does not have the body weight to keep the 80 down like the 50. My husband has been looking for aftermarket supplies but has only pulled the restrictor plate off so far.

If you can help... would love to hear from you.

Thanks,
QuadMom
