    Raider 1100 Spittin'

    Hey guys, back again, and need some help.

    I went to start my raider again after it would not start at the lake. I thought it was the battery or spark plugs so I replaced them both. it sound like it wants to turn over and then there is something stopping it. I took the sprak plugs out and tried turning it over to see what was going on and 2 of the holes filled with gas and shot out of the holes. What would be the problem?

    does it crank over all the way? if it does are you getting spark? imo gas shoould not be squirting out. itshould be misting gas out the holes unless you were cranking over several times.

    Well we got it to turn over finally but it was like the starter would turn over once and that was it. We tilted the front up on the trailer and gas come out the back from the exhaust. My dad said he would check it out but as of right now he says when its not running i need to turn the gas off. I never had to do this and I shoudn't have to. We sucked the gas out of the holes and it still didn't want to turn over. Finally it started turning over a bit and it took forever to start. It fired up and more gas came out the back and finally stopped after we kept it idleing with the flush kit. Any Idea what is causing this?

    Sounds like your carbs were stuck open. How many hours? If many, I would rebuild the carbs. In the future i would turn the selector switch into the off position when storing it.

    The needle and seat valve in one or all of the carbs has gas varnish or gunk so that it is sticking open from sitting.

    I would also recommend a rebuild and a thorough cleaning of your carbs.

    If your plugs are soaked with gas, the motor will never start, fit new ones at this point, your battery must be fully charged also.

    Ok, sounds like what my dad said. This is the full update of how it ran. I have the fuel switch off because when its on and sits without use, the motor becomes flooded. So we have to keep it off and turn it on. once it turns on it will idle for about 15 to 30 seconds and than begin to run out of gas. once the gas is turned back on its fine for another 15 seconds but than starts to be fed too much gas. I ran it today but I pretty much had to run it 3/4 to full throttle so it would not bog down. Once it bogged down I would turn the fuel switch off and it would be fine until it ran out and than you would have to flip the switch on again. So yea, its beeing fed too much gas. Still need to rebuild carbs? By the way, It just turned over to 190 hours. Crabs have never been rebuilt.

    I recommend a strong dose of anti-biotics to clean up your "crabs"......

    Wrong! you need a topical solution as crabs are external not internal
