Spray some carb&choke cleaner in the intake while revving it up. if it smooths out then it is a fuel problem. if not most likely in the ignition system (spark plug, wires, or ignition coil) judging by the fact that it idles fine it sound like a coil. ( this next section risks you getting shocked but you wont be harmed, mostly just surprised and a little pain.. ouch) listen for a distinct click sound of a spark. if you can hear this follow the sound and look for the spark. you can also spray the wires with water to see if they will "leak" voltage from the insulation. you can disconnect the coil wire from the coil and hold it close to the coil where the coil wire attaches to the coil and start the engine. with it idling you should be able to pull the coil wire away about a quarter of an inch or more and see a bright blue spark. if the spark is red than the coil is weak. while doing this test hold the wire close to the coil but far enough that you can see the spark and rev the engine like you would when it would sputter. if the spark seems to stop occasionally or gets dim and red then replace the coil. if none of these things happens then reconnect the coil wire and check all cylinders with this test.

My suzuki ATV quad runner cranks & idles but when you give it gas-spits and sputters/YOU MASH THE STARTER BUTTON asgiving it gas/runs fine.starter stays engaged whole time

Hi, Todd and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel cap or fuel tank is not venting properly.
2. Fuel filter clogged.
3. Fuel line pinched or kinked.
4. Float needle and seat sticking.
5. Float level too low.
6. Carburetor bowl vent line clogged/blocked/pinched.
7. Idle adjusting screw set too low.
8. Air/fuel mixture screw set too lean.
9. Idle port, transfer ports, slow air jet clogged.
10. Slow fuel jet clogged.
11. Faulty fuel pump.
Good luck and have a nice day.

I have gas leaking out of the bottom of the carbs where the drain plugs are. It only leaks when the bike is moving. Does not leak idling. It idles perfect and runs out perfect no spitting and sputtering or...

Check is the carbs have a gasket or ring on the cup of the carbs, if they have change them for new ones, if them doesn't have gasket or ring you could make them in order to help seal the cups of the carbs.

Possability the inlet seals on the float bowl are hard or just old and when you ride- the vibration allows too much gas to flow past the inlet seals causing the float bowls to overflow.

How long ago since the Carbs were serviced?.

Kawasaki Brute Force 650 4x4i atv 2007 cold start problem seems to flood when trying to start. Once it starts runs like a champ and restarts no problem

Install new spark plugs and go easy on the throttle when starting. A power valve squirts extra gas every time the throttle is twisted. Twist too often when starting and the engine floods. Please rate my answer. Thanks!

I have a kawasaki 300 byou 1990 moled 4X4 that i put a carberator kit in but just doesn't run right spits and sputters when i give it gas it will idle ok sometimes. drained all gas and cleaned out good....

It sounds like it is running too rich (too much fuel). First, make sure the air filter is clean and that there are no intake leaks between the carburetor and the engine. Also, try a new spark plug (they can go bad without warning). Then, with the engine at normal operating temperature and idling, adjust the idle mixture screw to attain the highest idle speed. After this, set the idle to the correct speed using the idle speed adjustment screw.
Test ride. If it still spits and sputters at half to full throttle, then you will need to get a smaller main jet - or go to a less restrictive air filter, such as one by K&N.
Finally, I am not sure what prompted you to put a carburetor kit in, but if the bike had been sitting for any lenght of time (more than 6 months) make sure the carb isn't plugged up.

05 750 brute force missing badly

Just had same problem. Take carbs off and clean all jets and bowl. Be carful front and rear carb have different sized jets. When you put quad back together put entire airbox together even the cover. This quad will backfire unless air box is complete. I bet you anything your carb is full of trash.
