I recently purchased this used. It seems to idle high after it has warmed up. also when it warms up it also seems to have a hard time shifting. Not sure if 2 are related but think they may be. I am new to quads but am a little handy when it comes to engines. Not sure if it is air leak or the Carburetor or something else.. Would appreciate some information on things to check out.

Welcome to the forum. Saw your other post too. I like riding youth atv's whenever I get the chance as well.

Let's start with the obvious....have you tried adjusting the idle after it's warmed up?

And yes, a high idle will make it difficult to shift.

High Rev issue resolved

I checked the cable and that seemed to be ok. I then adjust the idle and that seemed to fix issue.
Something so simple. I like it: was thinking I was going to have to rebuild carb.

Thanks for all the help. appreciate it

Thanks for reporting back. And rebuilding carbs ain't too bad if it ever comes up.

We like simple fixes too. Leaves more time for the real fun.
