Raptor Carb/Electrical Problem

<font color="blue"> when i start my raptor up, it will idle just fine, but when i give it gas, the motor bogs down and will stall itself.. it happened all of a sudden one day, so i think the problem's somewhere in the wiring, but it could be the carb too i guess... anyone know where to start? thanks

Is your parking brake on? If the brake is on, it will never rev correctly. [img]images/graemlins/cussing.gif[/img]

Re: Raptor Carb/Electrical Problem

how can i tell if it's on? i took it off and put a block off plate on... is there a sensor somewhere that i might've triggered? I've never heard of a parking brake doing anything like that.. is it a raptor thing? thanks

Re: Raptor Carb/Electrical Problem


Its probably something in the carb, I had the same problem with my warrior, thought it was electrical and it was simply something stuck in the carb.

Everyone should install a fuel filter, helps keep [bleep] out of the carb.

Re: Raptor Carb/Electrical Problem

<font color="blue">that's what i thought originally, so me and a friend took the carbs off and apart to clean them. but me bein the dumbass i am sprayed carb cleaner on the rubber gaskets and the rubber things around the needle, distorting their shape. when we went to put it back together it just wouldn't line up right, so now the carbs leak gas like you wouldn't believe. so i have to spend around 50 bucks now to replace that sh*t, and i'm not even sure if it did anything. that's why i posted to see if anyone knew if it could be somethin in the wiring... i dont know anything about raptors really.. i've had mine for about 50 days and have only ridden it twice. i just cant get it right. thanks for the tip though [img]images/graemlins/cussing.gif[/img] </font color>

Re: Raptor Carb/Electrical Problem

when you put the parking brake block off on did you plug the wires that go into the perch together? if not this may be what it is

Re: Raptor Carb/Electrical Problem

<font color="blue"> no, like i said, i dont know much about raptors yet.. i didnt even know there were electrical wires goin to the parking brake... when i get the carbs fixed and get it started i'll play around with that. i really think you're right because we put a twist throttle on, and it was running fine. then we put on a new shifter and then the parking brake block off, and after that it started messin up. i never thought about the pbrake doin it though. thanks so much, you saved me a trip to the dealer! </font color> [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: Raptor Carb/Electrical Problem

not that anyone probaby cares, but when i taped off the parking break sensor my problem was instantly fixed. i would've never guessed that a parking brake could act like a rev limiter, but i'm glad someone did! thanks alot for the help guys
