    02 Srx 700 starting problems!!
    Posted by Bundy on Friday, November 30, 2007 4:48 PM


    I just bought an 02 srx 700 and Im having problems getting it to run on all 3 cylinder.  The only one I can't get to go is the one on the clutch side.  I checked it for spark and it did but the plug looks really clean just like it came out of the box.  Maybe not getting gas?  I cant figure it out!!  Im ready to pull my hair out.

    That sucks, I just got it back from the dealer and they were supposed to clean the carbs!!!!  How hard is it to pull the carbs out and check for this?  Thanks

    Not much of a big deal to take the carbs off and clean them. The pilot jet is on the bottom of the carbs. but it is not the one under the float bowl. drf

    Once you get the carbs cleaned I will let you in on the best kept secret bare none for a fuel additive. Schaeffer's neutro fuel stabilizer. It's hard to find, but it worlds better than Seafoam or Stabil.

    Figured it out, It was a pinched fuel line under the airbox!!!!

    At least it wasn't an oil line.  Had that happen, on my buddy's Polaris.  Glad you found it.

    Sounds like a plugged pilot jet and yes they’re a pain in the butt to clean Yamaha carbs. It’s just way too busy under the hood but take your time and pull get it done ok. Not rocket science but it’s tedious just to pull the carbs
