Hi all, first time post. I have a 2002 400 Auto 4x4...thats having carb issues. I'm interested to know if the carb from a 2002 500 will fit on my bike...my carb is hosed...and I didnt want to by new OEMbecause of cost. I can get a used and rebuild it cheaper.

Thoughts?

what is wrong with the carb? why is it hosed? the 500 carbs will sometimes fit depending on the engine and airbox boot diameters, the jetting will need changed obviously. I'm curious what is wrong with the carb because my 04 400 has 7k miles on it factory carb, it's had an issue or 2 but so far all have been repairable

Well, the carb on it I believe was a Chinese replacement...which i replaced with another...it jsut runs like crap, hard starting when it does then pops and make noise. It may be I need a valve adjustment...but the carb is the obvious one now. I did source a good used OEM carb so, I'l go with that.
