A couple of suggestions: Make sure that the gasket seal is good between carb and engine. I had a similar problem with my Cat 500 and found that the choke was sticking. I sprayed down the carb with Gunk and made sure all moving parts were not hanging up. I also put anti fogging oil in the gas to help clean jets and ports hard to clean with a carb rebuild.

I gutted the carb everything was clean.jets out and they was clean,the motor has had a big bore kit installed and the carb wasn't changed or the fireing could any of those things cause these issues


something is still wrong in the carby or the fuel lines to the carby
did you check the float level before assembly
Change the plug leads to a better quality and replace the plugs
is the exhaust system clean and not blocked with carbon or rust

Why cant anyone answer questions about this hawkeye atv


Have you checked the Spark Plug ? No Spark & No Fuel means not going to start and run. If you are getting fuel then your Spark plug may need to be cleaned or replaced or even re-gaped. Spark plugs have a tendency to get fouled out. Meaning oil gets on it and it can not throw a good spark. If you do have a good spark then check the choke and or the float in the carb.

Thanks for allowing my in-put!

Yamaha breeze 125 wont start.have checked spark plug & cleaned carb.My son got it bogged down pretty good in a mud & after we got it out it wouldnt start.What else could be the problem?


Have you checked for spark? That's where you need to go to first. Take out the plug, put it back on the plug wire and hold it against the cylinder head. Kick over the motor and watch for spark.

When I try starting it some times it will start other times it wont


If it turns over quickly, ... does the spark plug fire?,..put in new, correct NGK plug to begin, then make sure you have gas going to the carb, then see if gas flows out of the carb drain, (straight head screw)... gas should flow out freely. If its been sitting,, may need a carb cleaning...JUST CLEANING...NOT "rebuilt"...

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.

Polaris 325 magnum spark plug change


The spark plug is on the left side (shifter) of the head,,..?/ this is August.. if the atv has been sitting the carb may need a qualified professional to clean it again.. Replace the spark plug before you squirt anything in the engine...
