Exclamation Not a mechanic

Ok so i have some problems with my raptor 350.

When i go to start it, it will only run on reserve with choke on. The thing will only run for about maybe 30 secs at most. Then it wont start again and ihave to wait about 20 or 30 mins before it will start again and do the same thing.

Does anyone know what the problem is?
And how to fix it?

But remember i do not know what im doing really. haha

You can start by cleaning your carb....realy realy good, & maby a valve adjustment. Whens the last time you checked your air filter? Maby its realy dirty..
Good luck.

Ok so i cleaned the bottom bowl of the carb and then put it back together and ran the crap out of it! I could easily tell that worked for a quick fix. Now the thing runs like a beauty again!

what he has in red is only 1/2 of it you need what is in green. you might as well get a rebuild kit and the parts in green if they are not in the kit. And like Banshee2Raptor said CLEAN the entire carb. I claened mine on my 660 a few months ago and used about 4 cans of carb cleaner and swapped out the jets with new since I was in a hurry.
