Carb parts?

Recommended Posts

I got sand or dirt in the carb at Pismo last weekend, making it run poorly, so I took it apart and cleaned it. The accelerator pump diaphragm curled up as i took it apart, but i thought i got it all back together correctly. I must have torn it somehow, as now it leaks. Where do I get the little parts for the carb? I've got the 650 Sand Spider, 2 cylinder, one barrel side draft carb.

I used a Uni filter on top. I was going to build a scoop setup, but didn't get it designed how I wanted.

Hi

Thear are no parts around to fix this.I can not find any and joyner never sold parts to rebuild it.We some times use a solex carb.But we had to fab a new base to make it fit.I ran good but it was a lot of work.Wait till some more come in stock.Maybe you can find a carb rebuilder he may have some thing

I found a place called "Fast Freddy's" in Santa Ana. They make a two barrel Weber side draft carb setup for the 650 Sand Spider. It isn't cheap, but it comes complete with every part needed to fit the Weber in your Joyner buggy, and forever eliminate the goofy Joyner carb setup. They also will modify your header for better output, or tell you how to do it yourself at a local muffler shop. When the parts come in I'll try and do a report on how it goes.

Fast Freddie's has a header solution, as well. I got the instructions, and figured out how to build my own. Here's the start - a 2" 90* mandrel bend and a 2" straight piece. I'll take out the original collector and put this in its place.

I tried a kit from a place called 6 Sigma Racing, off of eBay. Stay away! They sent me a few sheets of paper with various random non-applicable carb tuning tips, a bad copy of some service manual drawing for a carb other than the one I have (2 barrel vs. one barrel), three jets and four tiny drill bits. The photos and drawings depicted drilling out the pilot jets, but I don't know on what carb. When i tried to contact them, no response, so I filed a complaint with eBay, and then they got all nasty..... He said he'd refund my money if i sent it back, but no such thing happened. Beware!

What happened to parts from fast Freddie?

They haven't come yet. Apparently, the parts were not all on the shelf, some had to be made, such as the manifold, which he said they machine from aluminum. The 6 Sigma parts were before the Fast Freddie order, and they obviously weren't going to work, or more accurately, they weren't gong to reply to my questions, so I kept looking. Interesting thing, when I moved the buggy from the carport to in front of the garage to work on the suspension while waiting for the carb, the accelerator pump didn't leak fuel. Self repair? IDK, but that doesn't mean I trust it. Weber will be better.

The parts came from Fast Freddies last week. Nice Weber DCOE 45, and a couple of manifolds to adapt it to the Joyner head. 45 is huge relative to the ports in the head, but i didn't feel like pulling the head to do a porting job. The gaskets are hand made, and not what I would put on, so I didn't. I modified the provided gaskets for full flow, made a few other changes, and got it mostly hooked up. Still need to plug the water hole where Joyner had coolant running through the manifold.

The new carb is in place, seems better, but I have a misfire. Also got the shocks in, and gussets, and sand shields. Pics up in my gallery.

I don't know if it is repair, or preemptive upgrades :rolleyes: When i put in the rear Airshox, the upper end had to be on the beltline frame rail, and based upon the fine work i found on the control arms, I figured it was easier to tie the new spring/shock mount across to transfer the loads before I bent the dickens out of the whole frame. The header upgrade was simply changing the collector pipe out for the size that the math called for. The amazing thing is that the Joyner muffler was also 2.0", which was the size the collector should have been, and they put a swedge adapter in place to change the pipe from the 1.5" to the 2.0" just before the muffler. I had to move my muffler anyway to clear the new shock location, so changing the pipe size at the same time was a no brainer.

As to the carb, I'm in the process of changing tires out (the Joyner wheels no longer fit the frame with the new shocks) so i can take it for a spin without paddles, which could be upsetting the float level and causing my carb tuning issues. Then I'll check the floats, if that doesn't change anything.

Swapped the tires, and it runs great, up until half throttle, when it falls flat on its face. I called Nick and he said to change the float level first, so I did, but no change. Next up, new fuel filter.

The parts came today, I put them in in about 10 minutes (less than half a beer) and with the right jets that buggy screams! Not as fast as my RZR, but a very nice ride. I did some bad bumps, and the Airshox in the rear are much smoother than the stock coil overs in the front. :D

      I see alot of questions about carb problems hopefully this will give some insight to there problems
      This list should go for almost all ATV/motorcycle carbs. CV or mechanical. I tried to list them by frequency

      1) Old fuel - this is the number one cause of carburetor problems. as it sits it dries out and varnishes the small ports/orifices in the bowl. All these problems can be cleaned with carb cleaner, air compressor , fine bristle brush, and a thin brass wire.

      2) Clogged idle jet - the orafice is small in this jet and it is the first to get clogged with tiny varnish particles and/or dirt.
      Symptoms- poor idle or no idle, you may need to feather the choke to keep the engine running at idle.
      Fix - See carb cleaning section below
      Prevent - install inline fuel filter and always store machine with a full tank of gas. Stabil can help but will not totally prevent the issue.

      3) Clogged main jet - This will only happen with extreme dirt and varnish. more then likely your idle jet will be clogged also.
      Symptoms - machine will not rev has no power, will stall when the throttle is opened.
      fix - See carb cleaning section
      prevent - install inline fuel filter and always store machine with a full tank of gas. Stabil can help but will not totally prevent the issue.

      4) Fuel over flowing from the bowl - this is caused by a bad float needle or varnish/dirt preventing the float needle from seating, or the float is out of adjustment.
      symptoms - worst case is fuel continually flowing from the carb into your engine or airbox or out the overflow. This can also be show up as a very rich running engine, or slow drip from overflow when engine is running. The engine will stumble and stall, running rich and choking itself out. Spark plug will be coated with black soot.
      Fix - see carb cleaning, additionally, check the adjustment of the float arm to make sure it is perfectly parallel to the bowl gasket seat. If not you need to bend the little brass tang on the float arm until it is resting parallel when the carb is held upside down.
      prevent - install inline fuel filter and always store machine with a full tank of gas. Stabil can help but will not totally prevent the issue.

      5) fuel flow problems - Fuel not properly flowing into the carb, caused by clogged fuel filter, clogged petcock filter, kinked hose, clogged float needle/seat, clogged breather cap (although this one will run longer before dieing)
      symptom - machine runs for a few seconds up to a minute or two then sputters and dies. Worst case the engine will not run at all (no gas in carb)
      Fix- it's best to remove and clean the tank with water and detergent, remove and clean the petcock, check for kinks in the fuel line replace if there are any problems, replace the fuel filter. Check the flow by filling the tank and opening the petcock holding the carb end of the fuel line over a pan. Fuel should pour ot at a good rate. Then reconnect the carb and remove the drain plug from the bottom of the bowl. Hold a pan under your carb and turn on the fuel. It should flow at about the same rate out of the bowl.

      6) Choke clogged out out of adjustment - varnish is clogging the choke orafice in the bowl, or the choke cable is not opening the choke valve properly.
      symptom - engine will start ok when it is warm but when it is cold out (50 degrees or less) it will take a long time to start, or not start at all.
      fix - see carb cleaning section, additionally adjust your choke cable so there is no more then about 1/8" of play

      Carburetor Basics
      As you can see most of these problem come from old fuel and varnish caused by old fuel. One needs to simply understand the basics of a carburetor to be able to figure out what is going on. It's sole purpose is to properly mix the right ratio of fuel to air at any RPM range. There are basically 3 circuits that allow for this.
      -The first one is the idle circuit. It consists of an idle jet and an idle mixture screw (or air mixture on some models). The stock setup of most idle circuits (98%) is to turn the screw in all the way. Not too hard or you will damage the screw. Then back the screw out 1 1/2 turns. This setting should get you in the ballpark enough for the engine to idle. You then need to adjust the idle down and re-adjust the idle screw until you attain the best idle. You need to listen to the engine, you will be able to hear when the idle mixture gets better or worse. This cicuit will effect the idle mixture with a little overlap into mid range. So from closed throttle to cracked throttle. If your engine stalls a lot when you close the throttle you need to suspect the idle circuit.
      -The next circuit is the main - This circuit actually has two inherent circuits the first one controls mid range throttle/RPM. The second controls Wide open throttle. It does this with the use of an adjustable needle in the slide of the carb that varies the size of the opening in the main jet circuit. In the racing world there are infinite setups/possibilities here but for home use just understand that the needle position controls everything from cracking the throttle to about 5/8 throttle. After this the main jet takes over and all fuel flow is metered by it. If you have a mid range stumble check your needle position. If your engine doesn't want to pull at WOT then check your main jet. if both are problem them your main jet is way off.
      -Cold start/Choke circuit - just as the name implies there is usually some form of fuel bypass valve that allows additional fuel to be drawn directly from the bowl into the intake stream. This allows a cold engine to start on cold days, when a much richer mixture is required. It's usually controlled by a manual lever either on the carb body or through a cable connection.

      These three circuits work together with an intricate network of small tubes that siphon fuel from the bowl in various ways. Understanding this will help to pinpoint issues while you are working with your carb.

      Carb Cleaning and other misc tips----
      Carburetor should be removed form the machine.
      Start by first setting up a clean towel or large rag to lay your parts out on. You need to keep these tiny parts clean. Light color works best to provide high contrast for the tiny screws and parts. I've used paper towels and in a pinch on the trail I took off my white under shirt to fix a friends bike. Proper preparation will make this job so much easier. Any carb cleaner spray will work fine, have the finest nozzle you can for your air compressor. When blowing off parts hold on Tight!! you do not want your tiny jet flying across the garage at Mach 2!!

      take the bowl off and remove the idle(low speed) jet. Then blow carb cleaner directly into the hole where the idle jet came from you should see it coome out of a few tiny ports in the engine side of the carb. Immediately after blowing carb cleaner through take an air compressor and blow directly into the same low speed jet hole. You should repeat this a few times each time looking at the flow coming through the ports. Then take your low speed jet and look real close at the openings they should be round and perfectly clear. Take some carb clean and blow through each of the holes in the jet then use the compressor and blow it off (hold onto that thing tight so you don't blow it across your garage... been there done that!!). Most of the time idle problems lie in this jet. Next remove the idle mixture screw and blow through it with carb cleaner and air. When re-assembling it turn it in all the way and then out 1 1/2 turns (don't tighten it too hard!! or it will damage the screw and the seat).The next thing you need to do is remove the float by pulling the pin that slides into the carb body. Be careful when removing this there is a tiny spring clip that holds the needle to the float arm don't lose it. Clean the mating surfaces of the needle and the needle seat. next check your needle to make sure the spring inside it moves freely. If it does not spray it with carb cleaner and work it in and out with your fingers this will usually clean it out and allow it to flex again. Then reinstall the parts and check your float level. Stock setup on most mikuni carbs is the float tab set parallel with the bowl flange. So when you hold the carb upside down your float tab (the brass lever the floats use to close the needle) should be perfectly parallel with the flat surface that the float bowl mates to. if it is not parallel then take a small screw driver and adjust it by bending the brass tab until the float arm is parallel. Now remove the main jet and spray it with carb cleaner, again viewing the hole to make sure it is perfectly clean and round. In the worst cases I use a piece of fine brass or copper wire to run through the holes to clear them out, or just the bristle of your brush. Now finally before you put the bowl back on take your brush and clean out all the gunk that is dried in there. If it is heavily varnished spray it down it carb cleaner and allow it to dry and it will rub right off like a powder. The most important thing is an eye for detail blow through all the small holes that you see and look for the carb cleaner to flow through freely. Not only will it clean your carb it will also give you a good understanding of how this seemingly complex peice of equipment is very basic and easy to understand.

      Choke Adjustment----
      Hmmm its easier to show someone then try to explain in text but let's see if I can get it close. This is the best way I found.

      -Start with the adjuster screwed in almost the whole way before you assemble the brass slide valve back in the carb. The carb should be installed already before you start unless you cannot access the choke when the carb is installed

      - now insert the valve back in the carb and tighten in down, not too much just snug.

      - this is where it gets a little tricky. With one hand on the choke lever and the other on the choke adjuster start to spin the adjuster out slowly. While doing this the other hand should be working the choke lever to feel the amount of slack left in the cable. You should be able to feel when the choke cable starts to raise the choke valve. This can be tricky if your choke cable has a lot of drag. If so you should think about oiling the cable. The choke valve spring should offer enough resistance to feel when the cable picks it up..

      - keep working the adjuster until you feel about 1/8" of slack then tighten the adjuster lock nut.


      As a test when the engine is warm and you pull the choke it should kill, or almost kill your engine. On my TB if I just touch my choke it will die. If there is no effect either the adjustment is wrong, the idle mixture is too lean, or the choke is still clogged.
      Hope this helps someone Cheers!

      This looks to be a pretty common topic and I've had issues with mine overheating since I got it back around the end of 2019. Started running hot again, thermostat was not opening and they sent me a new one. Installed that, burped the system for air all to no avail. Next in line is the water pump to replace, they sent me a water pump and when I got the old one off it was not turning freely to say the least so I'm thinking that could have been my problem. My issue now is getting the slot in the water pump shaft to line up with the tab inside the engine of the machine. Any tricks to doing this? Thanks in advance
    • By Joe Breaux
      Has anyone tried using an external electric water pump on these machines?  I watched a video on youtube of one installed on a 1000 cc  side by side that had chronic overheating issues in hot weather.. He claimed that after installing a Prius  electric automotive  pump from junk yard, inline in the inlet hose and bypassing fan temp switch,  that the engine never overheated again. .. I am considering trying it on mine...................... Anybody  else done this? .................. He did not say if he removed the mechanical pump or not.. would it pump thru that pump?

      Hi All,
      Our Hisun is not making any power. Once you start to climb RPM's it almost sounds like the timing is out, it sputters and farts and doesn't want to climb RPM's at all. It starts fine though.
      I checked and set the valves, they were a bit tight but not bad. The spark plug is very black. The exhaust valves are a real nightmare to get to fyi.
      On the last service the dealer put the wrong plug in, so I'm switching that back to stock as soon as we get one. I'm also thinking the air filter should be checked/cleaned. 
      Any other things to check?

      Can anyone help me locate the back up siren?  It is so loud it really hurts my ears.  I'd like to be able to disable the noise or at least muffle it.
