Beartracker carb or valves
My brother in law asked me to help his boys get a 02 Yamaha Beartracker running again. He had just spent $200 rebuilding the carb and when I got it, it would only run with the choke pulled 1/2 way and was popping from the carb. The carb was not shoved all the way on the boot at the intake and I thought this was going to be easy.
I have since pulled the carb apart and cleaned the crud out that was left behind. Did find crap in the air pilot jet. It will now start, smokes quite a bit, and will idle with no choke once warmed up. The carb is extremely sluggish. I mean when I push the throttle 1/4 on it takes about 2-3 seconds to raise the rpms. It runs good once past that but popping like crazy from the exhaust on deceleration. I have no idea when the valves were last adjusted.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
