So i took my 03 raptor 660 out on a trail ride last weekend. Bike ran great and no problems. The next morning i went to unload it and it wouldnt start. So i tore the carb apart and cleaned all the jets which were gummed up. Now the bike will start and idle but if you try and give it any throttle at all it hesitates like crazy and backfires. What could this be? ive tried adjusting the fuel screws and nothing

Did you make sure to shut the fuel off while the bike was in transit? A flooded bike will backfire upon throttle like that. Mine does it every time after I stand it on its ass end for washing. Just let it idle for awhile. Should straighten out shortly if that's the case.

Most likely the Park brake rev limiter is engaged..............
