dam! dont know what i did :?: to kendo but sory!
so i got the throtle back to were it belongs,now it idles the same no matter which way you turn. i found that if i put my hand over the airbox tube it runs great and picks up the idle speed,and runs very smooth,and when you give it gas it comes on strong and stays there.when i take my hand offit allmost dies and it sputers,give it gas and there is a big hesitation allmost dies then it soundsreally slugish! any ideas?

YOU did nothing Mike.

My non expert opinion is that you have an air leak somewhere on the way to the carb. But I'm not that bright and obviously pale in comparison to Bill's superior knowledge on the subject.

Dude whats up?
I though CVT and PSIA were funny.

Back to the Quad.
On Polaris's there is a switch in side of a box up on the handle bars that cuts the power to the ignition when you take your thumb off the throttle and the throttle cable dose not return. When new everything is fine and after a little time cables take a set and this needs to be adjusted.
You might have some type of device like this.

I got it. ETC “Electronic Throttle Control” I just had to make a small adjustment to the cable housing length and it fix it.

Who would have thought a carb would have created so much controversy?? :lol:

Air leak will cause the bike to run like total shit.

Hmmmmm, sounds VAGUELY familiar.......... :finger: :nod:

Glad to hear it's finally fixed. Just another lesson, I don't trust anyone to work on my junk. :) Now you have no excuses to go riding with us. :wink:
