Hi, I just picked up a 01 from my friend who has had it sitting in his garage for a bout 10 years, The quad has a lot of bolt on extras and very low hrs . I am going to give it to my son and yes I am aware of the possible 01 issues.

The I cleaned the carbs for him about 6 years ago and had it running and then it went right back in the garage, I took the carbs apart and the one side was really bad so I cleaned them up and replaced the O rings and also the needle valve and seat. Set the floats to 13MM and did the clear tube check. Pilot screw is 2 1/4 out on one and 3 1/4 out on the other ( That is where they were ) and the jetting is stock along with exhaust and intake and has a uni foam filter )

Oil and plug is new.

The quad seems to run fine under load doesn't bog or sputter but if I rev it in the shop it will pop and maybe cut out for a split second if I do it to quickly , It is not the rev limiter pop/backfire but just a random one if I bring revs up slow it is not a issue.

Is this normal for this motor or do I need to re clean the carbs or adjust the fuel/pilot screw? If I need to adjust the screw would I turn it out more ? Maybe a 1/4 turn? Thanks

PS I did intentionally make the PB Safety limiter kit in to check and it def is not that.
Also I am glad it seems to run good while riding and I don't need to rev it like crazy in Neutral I was just wondering if it was pointing to a slight lean condition that I should address.

I rode it for about a half hr the other day and it ran very smooth, I am just not sure why it pops and cuts out like it does when revving with no load. It does not pop on decel and it seems to run fine unload at all throttle positions and RPM. Just more annoying then anything as I try to tune things perfect. Maybe it is normal for this motor I am not sure. As my son gets older I will probably add a full exhaust/jet kit and open up the air box a bit. I may also take the carbs off again in the spring and give them a another cleaning. Over the winter the quads don't get ridden as much as we switch over to Snowmobiles.

A pop now and then is not a big deal, ideally there would not be any but I would not spend a ton of time worrying about it if it is running good otherwise.

If it pops and cuts out under acceleration it is a lean condition. Jets clogged or lean jetting. Sometimes electrical issues can cause pops under acceleration.

Its smooth while under power, Just breaks up / cuts out when revving and no load.

It is designed and tuned to be RIDDEN, not to rev at stoplights! ;-}

Lol I know, I am just wanting to make sure it is tuned right and I am not missing something, Non of my other 8 quads do this. And having younger kids riding they do like to make noise from time to time ( We live in the country on a farm no neighbors to worry about )
