hey guys, my friend just got a 2005 kodiak 400. It was sitting for a year with a full tank of gas. It ran and idled fine with some choke on, but with the choke off the idle was rough and sputtered and such, full throttle was still fine. We drained the old fuel out and refilled and took the carb out and cleaned it up. I just took the bottom half off the carb with the float inside and cleaned that all out and cleaned the jets out with some carb cleaner, air compressor, and paper clip, so i dont think i messed with to much i could of screwed up..however, now it wont start..weve tried the choke in multiple positions and adjusting the idle screw we got it to start for a few seconds but thats it. Its getting fuel, i open the drain at the bottom and it comes out and the spark plug appears to have good spark. If i give it throttle while starting itll keep reving, let go of throttle and it instantly shuts off.. Now i dont believe i unscrewed the pilot jet because i just read that its not by the other jets and therefore people overlook it which i believe i did..but would this need adjusting now?? and i dont think missing cleaning this jet has anything to do with it cause it fired up perfectly before and it seems i need a special angled tool to adjust this...but then again maybe i need remove this?? i removed what seemed like 3 jets all right by each other with a flat blade screwdriver..the one i removed also had like a nut on it where a wrench could be used and a small rubber oring..what are your guys suggestions or comments?
