New Raptor Troubleshooting
« on: August 30, 2009, 03:23:52 PM »
At complete stopping point. Have new 90 Raptor for my daughter. She has riden possibly ten times. Today electric started as usual. Warmed up with choke 3/4. Once I felt it was warm, daughter pushes throttle and it dies. An hour later I finally just wheeled it back to garage. Tried the following. Has gas. Adjusted idling screw. Tried to run it at various positions of choke. Got it to throttle up twice, but only by pumping throttle very sensitively.Once it came to a stop, it died again when throttle was pushed. Ran like a charm as long as throttle was not pushed. Hate that something this brand new is unusable. Please help.

My son's '09 raptor 90 takes for ever to warm up and sputers and dies if to aggressive on the throttle for the first 10 min or so. But have not had it no start and warm up and be fine.  I usually take it and ride it for the first 5 min to make sure it's nice and warm after about 5 min of idling.  Let me know if you figure it out.  :thumbs:

Hi, my sons does the same thing. He got his for Christmas last year so the warrenty is out. I pulled the carb and found no trash or plugged jets. Put carb back on cranked and idled fine hit the gas the first 4 or 5 times and it bogged/died then it started taking the throttle and ran fine for the next couple of trips then same thing happened again. I talked to service dept, at local dealership and they said there had been no wide spread problems, and didnt really have a solution. Hope you find something out and post back.

Thanks,
JC

Weird... I would say maybe give dipping the carb a try... sounds like it could be water in the gas. (had that happen w/ our old 3wheeler :) )
