Hi all,
I've got a 2002 Suzuki vinson 500 that I'm having issues with.
It will only run with the enrichener on. If i try to rev it up it dies out.
I can hold my hand infront of the carb and take the enrichener off and rev it up but as soon as I take my hand away it dies.
I have cleaned the carb 3 times now, installed a rebuild kit.
The fuel is coming out of the fuel valve normal.
Im at a loss.
Thanks for any input.
Tom

That is a Quad-Runner here in the States, never heard it called a Vinson before but that stuff is always different overseas.

Sounds like the choke cables are sticking or something isn't releasing.

Idk been awhile since I worked on a 4-wheeler.

It only runs with the "choke" on. Dies as soon as I flip it off.

I know that what I am saying something is sticking possibly. I've had snowmobiles do the same thing and I had to replace the choke cables and re-adjust everything. Cables need adjustments as well just like on snowmobiles.

Welcome
Did you set your float to 'LEVEL'?
You say you put in a rebuild kit
I assume it was a needle and seat
The float needs to be set then

Vinsons were sold here in the US as well.

Better check for leaks in the carb boots.

Maybe an Alaska thing? Never seen a Vinson here in the states or at the local Suzuki dealership back then as I was looking for a quad back then. Or maybe just not here...idk.

And yeah good idea didn't even think of that check the carburetor boots as well.

I believe the Vinson was Suzuki's solid-rear axel offering. I've seen a few up here. I'm also on the Suzuki forums and they talk about them quite a bit as well.
