Well i pulled my carb apart today not positive i measured the float bowl right but if i did it was right around the.7in mark so i dont think that is the problem i took the cover off for the belt to see if mabey that would somehow be causing it and that looked fine as well still waiting for my dyno jet kit but i dont see how that would change anything as my main jet is clean and clear do you think it would be something electrical? This is really starting to piss me off not being able to figure out why i cant go over 25. Any other advice would be much appreciated. Also are the K@n filters that bad i've seen a couple others on here with them but aparently there really bad for my engine i hadnt heard that before dont want to hurt my quad. Any input as why or why not to have a K@n is also appreciated. Thanks

Do you still have gas pouring out?Measure your belt with a caliper 35mm minimum. No mouse nests in your airbox or intake? Clean filter? What does your sparkplug look like?.

Gas hasnt really poured out mabey a few drops here and there but not pouring out. I need to get a cailper. So im not sure if i did something wrong but when i was messing with the belt at one point it was loose and then when i turned it it was tight again should it alwasy be tight no matter what or was something wrong i even drove it with the cover off which i know your not supposed to do but i wanted to make sure it wasnt causing me to top out at 25. Just took off all the air filter piping its all clean got a new K@N air filter in it as well but it had the same problem with the old air filter as well. Put a new plug in it a month ago but it looked mabey alittle rich not too bad tho i checked the pilot screw and it was set at around 1 and 1/2. Doesnt seem any of these things would make my quad only go half throttle. It revs prefectly fine in neutral and does fine in low gear but high gear above half throttle the engines kinda just pops and revs higher but doesnt go any faster almost feels like its hiting a rev limiter or something weird.

Belt min on 400 is 28.5mm. Is the battery low? If so the rev limiter will kick on. Try holding the reverse override button and see if it speeds up ( bypasses the limiter).

I did have to jump it to get it going right when i got back cause the battery was too low. I think i did try holding the override in didnt seem to make a difference but mabey i'll try that again would be awesome if all it was was the battery mabey it time for a new one.

How do i measure the belt is that the width? or how much it can move in between? The belt would have to be really loose to make it slip that bad and i dont think it would always do it at the same speed seems like the rev limiter must be kicking in? I do know that a while back before the bike sat for 5 weeks i went trhough some water and it died on me didnt get in the air box or anything but when i pulled it out it wouldnt start and kept flashing volt on the screen let her sit for a while and it fired up and worked fine after that do you think that would be the cause of anything its not flashing volt anymore but im thinking the battery still might not be were it needs to gonna throw it on the charger and check it see if we can get some more juice out of her thanks again yall.

Yes width, I let one get to 27.9mm and it slipped a lot on takeoff but didn't lose all that much speed. When it wouldn't start after being in water the float bowl probably had water in it sucked up threw the drain/vent on the bottom of the carb. I've saw carb slides get stuck after having the carb open also.

Update yall i got the dyno jet kit put that in there also put the stock filter back in as i've heard the K@Ns dont seal for **** so mabey i can bring that back. Well after putting it all togerther its still doing the same thing. I tried pushing in the reverse overide but it wouldnt change it toppin out around 25. The override still worked in reverse put it in 4 wheel drive and back still no change. Checked the batter and threw it on the charger for awile sittin right around 12 off and 13.5ish while its running. So that shouldnt be the problem didnt notice any fuel coming from the float drain. THe bike started up great and runs really good up to half throttle. So i maxed it out at 25 and then hit the kill switch and let it coast too a stop when i checked the belt it was really loose after it rolled to a stop is that normal? Its really tight and snug when its going slow or you let it slow down but when i hit the kill switch going as fast as i could and let it coast to a stop the belt was really loose any insight on that? It seems as tho mabey its not shifting into the next gear or something but i didnt think the belt should ever change how much tension is on it. Any more help would be muchly appreciated kinda stomped on this thing. Thanks
