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??????</end quote></div>
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.
If you look at the Vin # located behind the seat that will tell you what yr it is. The 10th digit of the vin # indicates the yr. for example if the 10th digit is a 5 its a 2005 if the 10th digit is a 7 its a 2007.
what kinda of costs are we talking about for mods......
A jet is about $4. A performance CDI is around $45. You can upgrade the CVT with different rollers/sliders and a torque spring for around $50 and that can make it climb really well. You need to get over to buggynews.com as that is where the best info is on these chinese buggies. This forum really has limited info.
