Idleing problem?

After I ride my quad for lets say 5-10 minutes, and stop and let it idle, it just studders and just shuts off. Can anybody help me with this problem?

Re: Idleing problem?

you should check to make sure that the idle is set high enough. If it is then try to set your high / low jets. These are usually in the area of 1 and 5/8s turns out from the seat. Lastly, you may need a new needle valve in the carb. Its not closing off totally and is allowing he bike to flood.

Re: Idleing problem?

usually when that happens on a quad it is becuase the idle is set just low enough for it to carbon up and die. OR it could be getting too much fuel and flooding out. Once you let it idle off and die, pull the plug to see if it is wet or just normal looking...
If it is wet it is getting too much fuel and you will need to adjust the carb accordingly. If it is still dry and looks normal, then the idle may be set too low. What does the exhaust smell like? Kinda like it is running rich or too much carbon??
