2003 Suzuki Vinson 500 Carburetor Probs
My 4 wheeler will run with the choke on, but as soon as you give it throttle it will die. I took the carburetor off cleaned it out and it still did the same thing. After 2 attempts at trying to clean it out and it still doing the same thing i decided to tear it down and soak it over night then spray it out with carb cleaner. I made sure everything was cleaned out and putit back together and still the same problems. I then took it to a mechanic that checked the compression and the valves, tore the carburetor apart and cleaned it again and still couldnt get it to run. He told me that the piston valve that is attached to the rubber diaphragm in the carburetor was wore out and that i needed to buy a new carburetor and not waiste my time buying a new valve. I was wondering if anyone has had this problem and what you did to get it to run again? Any advice will be helpful.
