Ever since I put my snorkel on from triangle atv, I have been having problems with it idleing properly. Also it has been backfiring through the carb between 0 to 1/4 throttle. what can I do. already adjusted valves and replaced spark plug.

turn the idle screw

turn the idle up or down until it is running smooth....maybe it isn't getting enough are, or maybe too much...

yea, it runs fine with the stock setup. but I want a snorkel.

Just to see if it still runs ok without it. Maybe something happened while you installed the snorkle, after that go after the idle, air fuel mixture etc.

1 to about 1/4 throttle is controlled by your air/fuel mixture screw. try adjusting it. you may need to screw it in a little.

if you can hold out a couple of months there will be a new hmf swamp series coming out. it has a snorkle. should be worth the money.

Swamp series is stainless steel, fully sealed and does not have any packing to wear out or worry about changing.
