Bought a quad this weekend.
Motor is rebuilt by a cross country racing team. Runs like a top. One issue: the carb was leaking.
I figured it was a needle/seat issue. I pulled the air intake off, moved the float up and down a few times, and put the intake back on.
The leak is gone, but now I'm having trouble starting the quad. Before i played with the float, it would start up right away, hot or cold.
I ran the battery dead trying to start it. Hooked jumper cables up to my truck and eventually got the quad started. It would idle but would die whenever the throttle was pushed.
Opinions? Its a 2005 polaris predator with the original carb. Ive been considering rebuilding it, but before i get carried away i wanted some input.
