Hey guys....my rubicon is having a problem and needs to get fixed before this weekend got a mud race coming up. I was driving around a few days ago and my quad just suddenly dies when i was full throttle. I start it, open throttle...she'll just die. U can only give about less then a quarter throttle so pretty much your going back like a turtle. Can anyone please help me out...I don't think it could be the carb but it could be...

Does it start right back up? If so it could be a plugged vent tube on the tank. Loosen the gas cap or even take it off and see if it still dies.

Dont forget to take your fuel on/off/res control valve off and clean it out too.

First things first though.... make sure your carb is clean and your jets dont have any garbage in them.

Sounds like water i the gas. If so, drain the carb, and take the tank off the bike, dump it out and refill with fresh gas
