My name is Rich I am new to this forum so keep that in mind. ....Ie I don't know what I am doing ......

Anyway after setting for a few month I tried to start up my 2003 Sportrax 250EX. It starts but only runs for a few seconds then seems to run out of fuel. I removed the tube feeding fuel to the carburetor and there is plenty of fuel there(so I dont think it is lack of fuel .......btw is there a fuel filter ?). I have unscrewed the float/needle housing and sprayed carb cleaner down that, also poured jet cleaner down it ......no affect. It still starts and runs for a second or two then dies ......apparently out of fuel.

Any suggestions on what might be wrong or what to try ?

Thanks!

Rich >> I'm just joining this forum with the same issue that you had (in 2018). Did you find the solution to your problem?

It sounds like your jets are still stopped up. It would be best to remove your carb take it apart and remove the jets and use a small piece of wire to make sure all of small holes are clean on both jets
