I originally let the atv set to long and the carb clogged up. I installed fresh gas and a new air filter and a new carb and a new pet cock on fuel tank and all are oem parts. the atv will crank and run fine for about 10 minutes but then will sputter and quit. If i let set for an 30 minutes or longer it will crank and run finr for about 15 minutes and it dies again. it appears it will just keep repeatin this process. do you have any ideas how to remedy this problem.

Check the air cleaner and any ductwork for blockage. (Mouse nest?)

Inspect the fuel system. If the fuel line is out of place and too close to the exhaust or cylinder head, the fuel may be boiling inside the line so you don't get proper flow to the carburetor (this is one possible cause of vapor lock).

Is the choke actuator part of the new carburetor? Verify that the choke is opening when the engine warms up. If it is an automatic choke, inspect the vacuum line and thermostat controlling it. Try removing the vacuum line from the choke actuator and plugging it when the engine is warmed up, then see if the engine keeps running. If it does, the actuator diaphragm leaks when the choke is open.

Check the exhaust pipe for blockage.

If the engine has an EGR system or PCV valve, check those for proper operation. If carbon deposits cause abnormal operation of the EGR valve, the engine will kill when the valve opens too much (about the time the engine is warmed up).

If everything else is good, check the exhaust manifold for blockage by carbon deposits.

Take the carburetors apart and either rebuild them or clean them thoroughly.

When you fuel up, try not to aerate the fuel. Let the nozzle dump the fuel over the hump in the tankto avoid getting it all aired up. Good Luck.

Some articles I have read suggest removing the stock auto-choke carb and replacing it with a Honda CT70 Carb. Check with a local shop to verify, I do not own either and am just passing along the info.

Another solution suggested by 'OneRide': Try it with the gas cap off. The tank vent might be plugged. Possibly plugged fuel filter. Are you using the choke correctly?

This seems to be a very common problem and no 'one' solution to fix it.

I hope this helps.

2001 Polaris sportsman 500 will run great for a couple minutes then dies. I let it set for a minute and it fires back up. I have to continue to do this as I am riding and it is very frustrating.


Sounds like the float bowl in the carb is sticking, go get a can called "Sea Foam" from your local parts store add about half the can to a full tank of gas take it for a good ride it will clean out any gunk and deposits in the carb and make it run good again i had the exact problem you are talking about with my wife's Suzuki Eiger 400 i let it sit for 5 months and it caused the carb to get all gummed up i ran Sea Foam in the gas and it runs like brand new again after riding it for about 45 mins.

The vacuum line goes to the smaller of the two fittings on the fuel petcock. Suzuki used a vacuum controlled auto shut off mechanism in many of their fuel petcocks.

I have a 2006 Suzuki eiger 400 auto, It runs awesome for about half hour then shuts off assuming because it is running hot? Any thoughts? Fan has not kicked on.


Yup.It's getting hot.Check the fan relay is operable.Fans gotta run.Most likely a bad heat sensor tho.That's a water temperature sending unit that tells the relay when to turn the fan on.Ifya gonna own these toys,learn the basics on how to care for them.There is ALWAYS going to be something going wrong.Get a manual.

I have an 04 Suzuki Eiger 400. Smokes a lot when first started but subsides a little after running. Im thinking piston rings but would like any other feedback before tearing the top end apart


sounds like piston rings, if rings are in bad shape,will be at its worst when cold then will get better when it warms up. Should be some power loss as well. pretty easy rebuild. good luck

2004 sportsman 400 4x4 shuts off after running for while. Blow air into the flue tank and will run again.


It appears that you have fuel venting problem or a float level set too high. Check the entire fuel system for kinked / blocked fuel lines/ filters and check the float level or fuel manifold pressure if it has one.
