Thanks Chillin...works like a charm. You're tip about the copper wire worked great.
I think it was the pilot jet but I went through them all to be sure.
Thanks again, I really appreciate the help Grin

Ya know...I pulled a schematic of the carb off the net and there are more jets than the three I cleaned above the float. so I'm going to pull it again and really go through it.
Thanks again.

Did you try a new spark plug?
I didn't replace it but have looked at it and it looked fine.
5  General / Tech Corner / Re: Trouble shooting an 04 bruin 350 on: September 27, 2011, 10:59:22 AM
make sure the rubber boot that holds the carb to the intake is not dry rotted or have a hole or crack in it.
There's no obvious holes or cracks but when I spray carb cleaner on the boot ( Air box side ) the RPM's go down.

It will maybe for a minute and very rough. then it gives out a pop and shuts down.
Thanks chillin

It's backfiring and idling rough. It's not burning any oil. I have cleaned the jets and drained the gas and put 93 octane gas in it which did nothing to correct the problem. Any ideas?
Thanks  in advance.

Thanks M&M I'll check the carb.
12  General / Tech Corner / Help with an 04 bruin on: November 03, 2009, 09:27:20 AM
Just started backfiring thru exhaust and air intake. Changed plug and it didn't help. Other than that I have not done anything else to it. Exhaust out the back looks normal. Not blue...not white.

Thanks for any help,

Just started this year. Off park rides are the best!!! Wink Ridge Runners were not a part of the decision to charge a fee.
That was political.
14  General / ATV Florida Open Discussion / Re: brimstone recreation in tenn.? on: August 28, 2009, 09:21:47 AM
Black Moutain is no longer free. Sad On park rides have a fee. Still reasonable but no longer free. If you hook up with the locales at the campfire, they will organize an off park ride for free.
15  General / ATV Florida Open Discussion / Re: brimstone recreation in tenn.? on: August 26, 2009, 08:23:49 AM
I've seen both types on the trails.
16  General / ATV Florida Open Discussion / Re: brimstone recreation in tenn.? on: August 25, 2009, 12:24:44 PM
Great place to ride!!! Windrock in Oak Ridge is a little closer. Both are great places to ride.

I know the USA is honoring a respectable man who reported on historical world events. And just finishing memorials for a world renown musician. Letís take a moment and honor one who is less known but did some historical world events. Let me share a mailing from another historical figure about Darrell Powers.

From: Chuck Yeager <chucky9>

Sent: Fri, Jul 10, 2009 1:02 pm

Subject: Memorial Service: you're invited.

We're hearing a lot today about big splashy memorial services. I want a

nationwide memorial service for Darrell "Shifty" Powers.

Shifty volunteered for the airborne in WWII and served with Easy Company of

the 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, part of the 101st Airborne Infantry.

If you've seen Band of Brothers on HBO or the History Channel, you know

Shifty. His character appears in all 10 episodes, and Shifty himself is

interviewed in several of them.

I met Shifty in the Philadelphia airport several years ago. I didn't know

who he was at the time. I just saw an elderly gentleman having trouble

reading his ticket. I offered to help, assured him that he was at the right

gate, and noticed the "Screaming Eagle," the symbol of the 101st Airborne,

on his hat.

Making conversation, I asked him if he'd been in the 101st Airborne or if

his son was serving. He said quietly that he had been in the 101st. I

thanked him for his service, then asked him when he served, and how many

jumps he made.

Quietly and humbly, he said "Well, I guess I signed up in 1941 or so, and

was in until sometime in 1945 .. . . " at which point my heart skipped.

At that point, again, very humbly, he said "I made the 5 training jumps at

Toccoa, and then jumped into Normandy . . . . do you know where Normandy

is?" At this point my heart stopped. I told him "yes, I know exactly where

Normandy is, and I know what D-Day was." At that point he said "I also made

a second jump into Holland, into Arnhem." I was standing with a genuine war

hero . . . .and then I realized that it was June, just after the anniversary

of D-Day..

I asked Shifty if he was on his way back from France, and he said "Yes. And

it's real sad because, these days, so few of the guys are left, and those

that are, lots of them can't make the trip." My heart was in my throat and I

didn't know what to say.

I helped Shifty get onto the plane and then realized he was back in Coach

while I was in First Class. I sent the flight attendant back to get him and

said that I wanted to switch seats. When Shifty came forward, I got up out

of the seat and told him I wanted him to have it, that I'd take his in


He said "No, son, you enjoy that seat. Just knowing that there are still

some who remember what we did and who still care is enough to make an old

man very happy." His eyes were filling up as he said it. And mine are

brimming up now as I write this.

Shifty died on June 17 after fighting cancer.

There was no parade.

No big event in Staples Center.

No wall to wall back to back 24x7 news coverage.

No weeping fans.

No tributes.

And that's not right.

Let's give Shifty his own Memorial Service, online, in our own quiet way.

Please forward this email to everyone you know. Especially to the veterans.

Rest in peace, Shifty.

Chuck Yeager, MajGen. [ret.]

20  General / ATV Florida Open Discussion / EXCHANGE RATE on: January 23, 2009, 04:10:58 PM
I had a bunch of Canadian dollars I needed to exchange, so I
went to the currency exchange window at the local bank.

Short line. Just one lady in front of me. She was an Asian lady who
was trying to exchange yen for dollars and she was a little irritated.

She asked the teller, 'Why it change?? Yesterday, I get two hunat
dolla fo yen. Today I get hunat eighty?? Why it change?'

The teller shrugged his shoulders and said, 'Fluctuations' .

The Asian lady says, 'Fluc you white people, too'
21  General / ATV Florida Open Discussion / Then the fight started on: January 19, 2009, 10:22:17 AM


Subject: And then the fight started.....

When I got home last night, my wife demanded that I take her someplace expensive....

So, I took her to a gas station.....

And then the fight started....


My wife and I are watching Who Wants To Be A Millionaire while we were in bed. I turned to her and said,"Do you want to have family?

"No," she answered.

I then said, "Is that your final answer?"

She didn't even look at me this time, simply saying "Yes."

So I said, "Then I'd like to phone a friend."

And then the fight started....


After retiring, I went to the Social Security office to apply for Social Security.

The woman behind the counter asked me for my driver's license to verify my age.

I looked in my pockets and realized I had left my wallet at home.

I told the woman that I was very sorry, but I would have to go home and come back later

The woman said, 'Unbutton your shirt'.

So I opened my shirt revealing my curly silver hair.

She said, 'That silver hair on your chest is proof enough for me'

And she processed my Social Security application.

When I got home, I excitedly told my wife about my experience at the Social Security office.

She said, 'You should have dropped your pants. You might have gotten Disability, too'

And then the fight started.....


Saturday morning I got up early, quietly dressed, made my lunch, grabbed the dog, and slipped quietly into the garage .

I hooked up the boat up to the truck, and proceeded to back out into a torrential downpour.

The wind was blowing 50 mph, so I pulled back into the garage, turned on the radio, and discovered that the weather would be bad all day.

I went back into the house, quietly undressed, and slipped back into bed.

I cuddled up to my wife's back, now with a different anticipation, and whispered, 'The weather out there is terrible.'

My loving wife of 30 years replied, 'Can you believe my stupid husband is out fishing in that?'

And that's how the fight started ...


My wife and I were sitting at a table at my high school reunion, and I kept staring at a drunken lady swigging her drink as she sat alone at a nearby table.

My wife asked, 'Do you know her?'

'Yes,' I sighed, 'she's my old girlfriend. I understand she took to drinking right after we split up those many & years ago, and I hear she hasn't been sober since.'

'My God!' says my wife, 'Who would think a person could go on celebrating that long?'

And then the fight started.....


I rear-ended a car this morning.

So, there we were alongside the road and slowly the other driver got out of his car.

You know how sometimes you just get soooo stressed and little things just seem funny?

Yeah, well I couldn't believe it.... He was a DWARF!!!

He stormed over to my car, looked up at me, and shouted,


So, I looked down at him and said, 'Well, then which one are you?'

And then the fight started.....


I took my wife to a restaurant. The waiter, for some reason, took my order first.

'I'll have the strip steak, medium rare, please.'

He said, 'Aren't you worried about the mad cow?'

'Nah, she can order for herself.'

And then the fight started.....


A woman is standing nude, looking in the bedroom mirror.

She is not happy with what she sees and says to her husband, 'I feel horrible; I look old, fat and ugly. I really need you to pay me a compliment.'

The husband replies, 'Your eyesight's darn near perfect.'

And then the fight started.....

:)mission mud was awesome) and i heard mud fest went well.and best of all no one was hurt.the people i met at this event were some of the nicest people ive met in a long time.i cant wait for the next event so we can see all of our new friends again.mr sales who knows perhapes in the future we can work together.after all this is about one thing creating a . place for atv and truck people  to go where its safe fun and affordable.

Well said! People we need to be united not divided the two events are not the enemy the people who continue to shut down our riding areas are. This infighting and back biting is counter productive to our cause. The cause being to find more places to ride. Having two events in two areas to ride sounds like a good problem to have at least from my point of view as a loyal offroad enthusiast's. I happen to like the Mission Mud set up and supported them some are die hard Mudfest people thats fine as long as everyone rode thats all that matters.
