This is a 450 carb but very similar to yours. The needle jet is the piece I'm speaking of.

Yea the "needle jet" right above the "needle jet holder" (seat.. right?) is not in there. It must have fallen out, I did not realize it was even in there. Going to try and order a needle kit at dealer tomorrow.

Part came in today, installed and the Foreman is running great. Thanks for everyones help!!

I had some time today to ride it a little, put a few miles on it. One problem I have noticed though. It is very hard to get into 1st gear and reverse from neutral. I have to rock the atv back and forth to get it into either gear. Once in first it shifts great through the gears. Also its diffucult to get from 1st to neutral. Do you think this because its been sitting for so long (almost 2 years) or because its basically new (19 mile now) and needs to break in or is this a sign I have the 1st gear issue that some of the Foremans have??

Again thanks for the help!

Try adjusting the clutch or it could be the idle is set too high or low.

It seems to idle pretty low. Would two low an idle cause the problem? I will have to play around with the idle some and see what happens.

You need the gears turning for it to shift good. Even though they are not engaged they are still turning with the oil friction. Too low of an idle they will be turning slower so the dogs on the gears will not mesh quite right giving a hard shift situation. It's an easy thing to play with to see if it helps anyways.

If you need the directions I can post them. They are in the owners manual and all over this forum. Not a bad thing to do every now and then anyways since everything does wear.

Is there a correct/incorrect way to put the needle jet back in? When taking the carb apart, I tapped it out with a long dowel and of course. It came all of the way out and I’m not sure which way to re-install it. When looking at the needle jet, one side has a larger inside diameter than the other. Also, when looking at the outside of the needle jet, there is a raised portion that is offset. Does the longer offset go in a certain way? Thanks
