LT 50 Stalls

My son has an 84 LT 50. The problem I am haveing is when he rides on the sand or somewhere that he can run wide open for a minute or two the bike dies. It usually starts right back up and will run for another couple of minutes and then die again.

It seems to me like it is not getting enough gas, so I have tried to ajust the float but I have not had a lot of luck. It also has no restrictors - carb or intake or exhaust, oil injection removed (pre-mix).

Any help or ideas would be great.

Re: LT 50 Stalls

It does sound like you're running out of fuel. Did raising the float level help at all?

Pull the fuel petcock out of the tank, take it apart if possible and clean. Check fuel line for obstructions. Check float valve, and vent tubes for possible issues.

Thanks for the response. I think that I might just need to play with the float a little more. I could't seem to find the right spot that wouldn't overflow or on the other hand die at half throttle. I did replace the fuel line and inline filter already. Will keep tinkering.

You might want to post this on the atvsource kids forum. Thats where all the experts and racers hang out.

Good luck,

Re: LT 50 Stalls

My daughters 02 lt50 did the same thing after I removed the restricter from the intake. After a couple of months of tinkering I posted this same question on and found out that under the main jet it had the proper size jet allready installed for the mods I had done. So I left the small one out and that fixed the problem. I dont know if the 84 model carbs are the same but you might want to look into it. It may be as simple as installing a larger jet if your carb is not the same as mine. good luck. ES
