Why does my 2009, Arctic Cat 300 DVX bog out after 10mins of riding it?


Sounds like it is running rich. Make sure the choke is not on or stuck. I would pull the carb and clean it with carb cleaner, look for any kind of sediments or crud. Is your air filter clean? It does not take much to make your float stick and flood your carb. Make sure everything is clean and all jets are clear.

Hi I am trying to pull start my 2009 artic cat snopro1000, I put it away running fine. I have spark to the plugs?


Are the plugs wet with gas after you prime the engine and try turning it over a few times? You may not be getting gas to the cylinders if you left gas in the fuel system when you put it away and it has evaporated and left behind gunk that causes the carburetor to stick or the injectors to clog. (I always use Sta-bil or a similar gas storage treatment when putting up a wet engine). Get two bottles of carburetor/injector cleaner. Put one in the gas tank to mix with the gas there. If you have access to the carburetor, pour part of the bottle of cleaner into the carburetor and work the throttle and choke back and forth a few times with the cleaner in place. Gently try moving the choke plate or float to see if they are sticking. Replace the carburetor housing and try cranking the engine several times. Otherwise, you probably need to have a mechanic look at it.

Carb leaks out of tube under carb


Float valve in carb is leaking or the float is sticking allowing fuel to overfill the fuel bowl. If the engine runs well otherwise it is a quick fix with a carb kit. If possible run alcohol free fuel in all small engines. Saves a lot of problems.

300 grizzly yamaha 2wd. Was running fine. just died. Will turn over great, but will not start. It will not even try to start


Have you tried replacing the spark plug?...Put a new one in it anyway - you ELIMINATE a problem very inexpensively!



Do you have gas in it?



Is there gas in the float bowl? There is a screw or bolt in the very bottom of the carb float bowl, loosen it and gas should flow out freely. If not. there is the first problem I would get repaired.

Keep me posted and if this doe not fix it, we'll try other options.

Gas in oil pan


sounds like the float in the carburetor or needle valve is failing and gas fills up the bowl, rides down the cylinder and into the oil pan.
Do you notice gas pouring out into the air cleaner?

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...
