Question about Motorcycles
2001 Kodiak 400.... cleaned carb completely, jets are clear... new needle and seat......air/fuel screw set at 2-2.5 turns out... will start and idle, but coughs back fuel, loads up, and then stalls out as soon as I push the throttle. Think the float height is set at 13mm...tried all different adjustments with no luck. Ran fine until the needle and seat started leaking...pulled apart to replace them and now this problem. Help!!!!

i'd say the carb is gummed up especially the pilot jet (#16158) in this pic of the USA carb. may have to remove the carb & bowl and then remove the pilot jet (w/ flat head screw driver) and clean out the tiny holes.
the carb slide is installed backwards (turned 180 degrees). its #16025 in the pic. i've done this before on my daughter's XR70 and Z50. you'll know if its this when you move the choke lever, RPMs increase and decrease.
hope this worked for you and was fast enough.

Were the jets the same size? Just because the numbers were the same does not assure you that someone has not used a jet drill to enlarge them. Pull the low speed jets and compare them with the old ones, using a wire gauge or set of number drills.

Are you sure that the needle is fitted correctly and that the float level has not changed. There could otherwise be something clogging the main jet or the passages to the jet.

I would check the compression of the piston, the rings could be stuck and not have good compression. It should show 120 psi or more. Also can pull off the exhaust and look in the exhaust port to see the rings, piston, and cylinder walls. If the motor has a power valve make sure that is not gummed up or stuck. Mark C
