2006 Arctic Cat 400 starts hard

Having a hard time getting my quad to start. Replaced battery, just replaced the automatic choke. The carb has been profressionly cleaned twice. I have checked all 3 jets and cleaned them. Found them to be clear. Once it will start after trying for 15 to 20 minutes it will stay going most of the time. Once it's been running for awhile it runs fine and will start right up 90% of the time. I need help and am on a tight budget. Thank you. Ron

Hey Anon, It sounds like the "choke" system is not working properly,, hard to start until it warms up is "classic" choke system problem..

SOURCE: quad starts but won't stay on?

ALWAYS have a fire extinguisher at hand when working on carburetors.
Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Is there any water or trash in the bowl? Drain a cup of gas from the tank. Is there any water or trash in the cup? Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, ( not all bikes have a water trap bowl ).

Drain the carburetor. There should be a screw on the lower side of the carb float bowl. Remove the screw then replace it after the fuel drains. Turn the gas back on and wait a minute for the carb to fill with gas. Install a new stock NGK spark plug and try to start the engine. If the bike doesn't start and run properly then shut off the gas and remove the carburetor from the engine.

Remove the float bowl and clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways and fittings in the carb. Remove the idle screw and the air screw on the outside throat of the
carb and spray into the screw holes as well.
< < READ CLOSELY > >
Be sure to put these two screws back in the same hole they came out of. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two adjusters down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each adjuster one and one half turns outward. Put the rest of the
carb back together, clean the air filter and install the carb. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine. This process should get you back on the road.

Please rate this solution. Thanks!

Sounds as if the gas tank is not breathing properly. The next time you run it, when it's about to die, loosen the gas cap. It should begin to run again. This is a sure sign that your gas cap is clogged. Clear gas cap of debris, or buy a new one.

Sounds to me like the battery is going out on it. Not sure how much a replacement battery is, but it is where I would start.

The starter engages and starts the motor fine when the motor is cold. however if you ride and try to restart the starter just spins and you can only start using the kick stater.

Black smoke at idle but theres no adjustment scews


Adjustment screw is located on bottom of carb in the column right behind where is attaches at the intake. 1 1/2 turns out is a good starting point. Also the choke could be stuck on. That model uses an electric choke. Usually these do not need to be adjusted. Choke removes easily with just a keeper that slides in to hold it. Clean with carb cleaner.

My 2007 Arctic Cat 250 2x4 barely starts and dies when you open the throtle any at all. No previous problems.


It sounds like it could be either a stuck choke, or a dirty carb. If you can see the choke moving freely you should try cleaning the carb jet and bowl. If you can try some carb cleaner first without removing the carb.

If you get it running, ensure you have fresh gasoline. I always store my engines with Seafoam to clean the carbs and keep the gas from going bad during storage.

My 2007 arctic cat starts slow and hard. new battery. no help


If your engine is starting slow and the battery is good, your starter may be on its way out. Remove it and bench test it, or while starting if it becomes hot to the touch, it may be time to replace
