Gas in the air filter is a sign your carb float is sticking.

89 Polaris Ranger500 6x6 side by sideis coughing,spitting and backfireing thew carb.whats the fix


I would start by pulling and cleaning the carb, air filter and spark plug. Usually the cause starts with dirty air filters that gets the carbs dirty which then cause the polaris to run rich and the plug will start to foul. The unburnt fuel ignites at the wrong time and back fires. A less likely problem would be out of timing.

My Suzuki Eiger 400 starts hard then once running is great.


The carburetor choke valve might be stuck open or not closing when the engine is cold. The engine needs a richer mixture to start. Too rich a mixture (flooding) can also cause trouble. Turn the fuel valve off to be sure the carb isn't leaking when not in use. If it smokes black on startup, it's flooding. Also check the condition of the spark plugs.

Atv will not start


Is your choke working OK? Even in the summer time a cold engine needs a littel choke...more gas than air to get started. But you don't need to keep the choke on for very long in the summer since the engine warms up faster. You could try some carb cleaner or even taken the carb off and cleaning it good because it sounds definitely like a fuel problem so it was a good idea to check the pump and filter.

06 king quad spark fails while riding


you are fouling spark plugs. the atv is running way too rich. either the air filter is super dirty or exhaust has been modified (race pipe, baffle removed, etc)

if none of those have been done then maybe your carburetor needle is stuck open and is flooding the motor and the carb needs cleaned.

My 05 Yamaha Grizzly 660 will not start. In my limited troublshooting practice I looked at FUEL, FIRE and AIR. Here is the fault, the engine will not start. I checked wires/fuses, plugs, fuel lines and air...


Sounds like you have a stuck float needle in the carbs (2). Usually after a few days with gas in the carb they will free up, you could 'knock' on the carbs with the plastic end of a screwdriver to help free them up. If not, turn off fuel, drain the carbs and fill them with carb cleaner for 24 hours. Redrain, attach fuel lines and turn the gas back on. If still no start it's time for a rebuild...
