  • Float level could be set wrong too. As far as I know the float level on the stock 400EX carb cannot be adjusted. There is no metal bar connecting the two floats together that can be bent for adjustment. The float is all plastic and would break if you tried to bend it to adjust it.
  • Oct 25, 2017 Adjusting the carburetor float on an ATV is a necessary step in the process of rebuilding or rejetting the carburetor. Each time the carburetor is removed from the ATV, the float level should be checked for adjustment, and reset if necessary. There are two methods, and a few simple steps to adjusting the floats on an ATV carburetor.

Re: 400ex carb problem
A little trick I learned awhile back.....
Turn the gas off, and remove the float bowl (while carb is still attached to the motor.)
After all the gas is drained out of the carb, turn the gas back on (with float bowl still removed).
Gas will start pouring out of the bottom of the carb now.
Push up on the floats till the gas stops flowing.
If the gas stops flowing when the floats are level, then the floats are set to the correct height, and there is no leakage from the float valve.
If the floats shut off the fuel BEFORE they are level, you may be starving the motor of fuel at high speed.
If you have to push the floats higher than level, then you may be flooding the motor.
If the floats don't shut off the flow of gas regardless of how high you raise them, then you've got some sand or dirt keeping the float valve open, OR your float valve is worn.
Oh yeah, welcome to the site!
