I have a 99 yamaha bear tracker that we boughta new carb for dont want to idle on its own and bogs down while driving. Have set to specs and done valves. Only will run with choke out. Any suggestions?

Check the float it maybe set too high... the gas falling into the float isn't running long enough before the float shuts her down.. Also check that the line from the fuel tank is clear and not full of kinks. Then set the low idle and high idle needle valves on the carb... call manufacturer or local much to get the screw turns...make sure the rubber seal between the engine and the air is not sucking in air. ... it's usually like a mini pipe.

2004 crf450r dumps gas out of carb when gas is turned on

your float settings inside your carb are set wrong read my advice to resetting them and you should be ok
You'll need to first start off by removing your carb. Be sure to clean the surrounding area to the best of your ability to avoid dirt and debris falling into your carb; or worse, your engine. After you've removed your carb I would suggest a thorough cleaning using carb cleaner (or equivalent) and compressed air to ensure that all jets and passageways are spotless. Avoid using wire or other tools to clean orifices of jets; it's all too easy to alter their original designed dimensions.

After your carb is clean you can now set your float level. The picture below will allow you to become familiar with the parts that are responsible for maintaining the correct float level in your carb. There are four basic parts, the floats themselves (part of the float assembly), the float assembly tang, the fuel inlet needle valve, and the fuel inlet valve seat.

(Float assembly pivot pin not shown.)

It is always a good idea to remove the float assembly pivot pin (already shown removed) and extract the float assembly and the fuel inlet needle. The fuel inlet needle is a wearable part and over time can deteriorate. A worn fuel inlet needle can contribute to an irregular float level. Most fuel inlet needles consist of an internal spring loaded bumper (which contacts the float assembly tang) and a plastic or Viton (rubber) tip. Inspect the fuel inlet needle tip for wear and/or damage. To give you an idea, Eric Gorr recommends replacing the fuel inlet needle/seat assembly every two years. I've found that the average cost is around $15 for both parts.

(Fuel inlet needle shown with Viton (rubber) tip. The Viton is used to isolate the fuel inlet needle from vibration and to create a better seal against the fuel inlet valve seat.)

Now that you've made sure you aren't going to have any issues from worn parts you can reinstall your needle, float assembly and float assembly pivot pin and continue on to set your float level. The float level measurement is taken from the top of the floats (when the carb is positioned upside down) to the gasket surface of the float bowl as illustrated in the next picture. You can use an open-end wrench (sized per your spec), a small metric ruler, or a float level gauge. The tolerance for your float level is usually around +/- 0.50mm.


When setting the float level be aware that the spring loaded bumper on the fuel inlet needle valve may have a tendency to compress under the weight of the float assembly which will skew your measurement. Before you obtain your measurement you'll need to make sure that the float assembly tang just barely makes contact with the spring-loaded bumper. Sometimes it is easier to hold the carb body at a 45-degree angle to avoid compressing the spring in the fuel inlet needle.


If you find that your measurement does not match your float level spec then you can carefully bend the float assembly tang to achieve your desired measurement. Be sure to recheck your work, and if you feel confident that your float level is spot on then you can reinstall your carb and get back to riding.

The leaking carbuerettor needs to have its float level set.
Remove the air filter assembly, the fuel pipes and cables.
Remove the carbs and turn them upside down. Remove the float bowl on one carb. This will expose the float. Pull out the pin holding the float in place. (Note the position of the spring that holds the valve to the float.)
Remove the float and valve(looks like a very small pencil)
Inspect the valve tip for damage(unevenness) and replace if nescesary.
Reassemble the carb. Do not fit the floatbowl yet.
Measure float level by turning the carb on its side to have the float "dangling" Tilt it slightly so that the float rests on the valve. Measure the distance between the bowl mating surface and the bottom of the float(See diagram). The distance should be 24mm. If it is not correct, bend the tab at the valve to allow for a larger or smaller distance. Fit the float bowl and repeat for the second carb.

Jeep wheel bearings and rear carrier bearings

As long as the diff itself was not noisy and there aren't a bunch of metal flakes floating in the lube, I suggest you pretty much leave the carrier alone. Just do the axle work, use good lube in there and be done with it.
