New Member Introduction

Hello folks!
Name is Mike, in Pinson, Alabama.
Retired, Law Enforcement.

My first ATV, 1998 TRX300 2WD, was purchased from a friend about 2 years ago. It was in dismal shape. With the exception of the motor and fuel system, there was nothing functional. Differential was broken. Brakes front and rear were full of mud, pads worn to nothing, wheel cylinders corroded. It was to be my project. About a year later, restoration complete.

Now, I have a, recently purchased, 1988 TRX350D Foreman. Factory original, used very little, and kept indoors, but has been sitting for years. Rebuilding the fuel system now. I may need a little help with carburetor.

Thanks for the welcome.
Mike

Welcome to the forum Mike. One of the biggest things on the 350 carb besides everything being clean us then throttle timing. You want the plunger and butterfly to open at about the same time.
