Well i just got done rebuilding the top end of my rappy, and the thing was running aswome i done the break in procedure and took it easy on it for a while. Just got back from a riding trip form claycity Ky , no problems out of the quad all weekend. But when i get home i put her up in the garage and i went out the next day to start her up and she wont start. It was barley cranking over so i jumped it off and let it warm up and went to take of down the road and when i pulled the clutch in to go to 2 it died and when i tried to start it the motor was turning over easy but when i tried to give it gas the motor slowed way down almoste like it was binding up but it only does it when i push the throttle and it wont start at all unless i jump it and even then it will only idel i cant ride it with out it staling. does any one know what can be causing this? I am lost need to get this thing going any hlep is appericated, Thanks in advance :mad:

COME ON! You can't be right ALL THE TIME! LOL! Aren't you EVER wrong? I'm glad nobody is keeping an official score, there would be a few people up top the leaderboard in a landslide, and the rest of us wayyyyyy down at the bottom. Willy would be one of the ones at the top, clearly, hahah.

I learn from everyone elses problems or questions, I troubleshoot to figure out what could be a possible solution and voice my opinion, it isnt that I have seen all these problems before, some I have, I just use common sense from what I know of the Raptor and direct you in a way I would normally trouble shoot the problem.............:)

Can any one guess why I joined this forum in 2007, I was trying to learn about a certain mod to the 660 Raptor...............;)
