Hi, can you guys recommend a carb rebuild kit for an '02 Raptor 80? I see that Shindy makes one (for sale on Ebay) and I see a few others. I've been having a time with the carb on this bike. The bike stalls out at idle, the carb will flood and "overflow" if I leave the petcock on. I've had it in the shop and the carb was pulled and cleaned but it only fixed it for a little while. I'm using fresh 92 gas with stabil and have a new fuel filter inline. thanks for any and all help!

I used the Shindy kit and it worked just fine. After you strip the carb down, spend a lot of time on the passageways as a grain of sand can cause mountains of problems!

I used a kit from moose industries on my 50 and it worked great. I was having issues with my carb even after the rebuild & it turned out to be an incorrectly routed throttle cable. Just something you may want to look at.

Thanks so much guys!

kawadank, how was your throttle cable routed? Did it have a bad bend and the top of the carb?
