Hey , brand new here. Got an issue with my '05 HH 150 not starting. will start with ether but not by itself. Though it might be the carb, so I pulled it and did a thorough cleaning. I replaced the coil, rectifier, CDI, and still no luck. Any help out there??????
A lot of times there are problems with that rubber elbow connecting the carb to the head. The rubber will separate and allow air to enter there. Once it is running, spray some ether around that rubber elbow - if the engine surges, then you have an air leak. Replace the elbow, it's about $20. I had an 05 Carter Talon, which is basically the same buggy, and it did the same thing. It was very hard to start, but once it warmed up, it would run. The other thing you want to do, if you already haven't done so, is adjust the valves.
If this doesn't help, go to Buggynews.com. That is THE site with info on those buggies.
