Hello all,I am trying to get my sons LT80 running again for this camping season. The problem is that it will not run without the choke on...only if you have throttle at full open. If the choke is on then it runs great through out the throttle range. I dont want him to ride it like this because i am afraid it will keep fouling plugs. Does anyone have any suggestions?  Confused  Confused  Confused

sounds like it's time to clean out the carburetor, this is common, check out the carburetor cleaning 101 post under atv repair and maintenance.

I am having trouble finding the carburetor cleaning 101 post under atv repair and maintenance that you referenced. I also need something similar for valve adjustment.
Thanks
