heres some pics of the carb bowl gasket as u can c its not a o-ring gasket and its still in place if u look closely u can see the split but its not bad
as for the manifold gasket theres a few pieces gone out of it but i used gasket maker to fill in the gap ,but i took it off to show ye the broken part
and another thing theres some sort of breather that comes off just at the start of the exhaust if u have any idea what its for its not connected up to anything either i got the quad like this maybe it has sometime to do with my problem i dont know
pictures arent great but thats the best i could get

The reason u can't find an intake gasket is because its not a gasket

The plastic bit is simply a spacer with o rings in it

U should be able up find one of those o rings

How was the plastic Brocken?
The gasket maker won't work in that place
Get some body filler or something to fill in those holes then get some new o rings

Motor bikes rarely (I've never seen ) use a carb gasket they use either a boot and clamp or an O ring

U can super glue an o ring back together

No u gotta replace / fix the spacer
more importantly replace the O rings in it

Is there a similar o ring in either the block or carb?

If there isn't then there may be a circular slot where u can fit one

Right if there's an o ring in the carb then the o ring in the spacer faces to the block

An obvious thing to say but important

Re order that o ring as well

That exhaust thing- I have no clue what it is. A friend of mine (rather foolishly, if you ask me) just bought a brand new chinese quad for his young niece. I noticed it had that part, and didn't make a lot of sense to me. I can't remember right now if it had wires or a vacuum mine to it, but the only thing I can figure is an emissions thing. Perhaps under the right circumstances, it admits fresh air into the exhaust to help burn of remaining fuel or something... Beats me.

you can but, it tends to make it hard & brittle; not the best properties for a rubber gasket

Replacing the O ring should solve your problem but, play it safe, repair/replace it

As stated above, it's not the best solution. Chances are, if the ring has split, the whole thing has hardened & won't seal even if you did repair it

IMO, either replace the gasket or, if you can't get one, run a bead of silastic (not just plain old silicone) in the groove in place of the gasket. If that doesn't seal it, nothing will. Be sure to use fuel resistant silastic

Nope that's about it
Unless u are going to silastic the carb bowl

I've never had a problem with a glued o ring and most of mine take 3200psi
But it is an emergency thing so if u can find a new or then its prefered

No idea what it is

Why can't u re fit it?

Otherwise try tuning it without it
If it works then u are set

I hate to kick a guy when he's down, but-

You goofed. Before taking any adjustment screw out of a carb, you screw it IN while counting the turns until it gently seats. That way, you know exactly how many turns out from seated it needs to be when you re-assemble it.

Without a service manual, dunno. Trial and error.

Well, that's not what you said previously

Screw it in until it touches the stop point & the butterfly linkage moves slightly
