Hey all, new Traxter owner here with some questions. Recently bought a 2001 Traxter 500 from a retired farmer who only used it to spray pasture weeds and pull a tow-behind mower at his lake cabin. Odometer shows 225 miles but it has sat unused in a shed at the lake for a couple of years. He drained the old gas and put in new gas with a can of SeaFoam and soaked the carb with cleaner and managed to get it running. It starts and purrs like a kitten with the choke pulled but even after warming up it won't idle without the choke being out about 25%. It's a little hard to shift but I'm assuming that's because it's idling too fast. Seems to drive real nice that way and doesn't stumble but as soon as you push the choke in it idles way down and dies. Local Can-Am dealer shop said they know the problem and would be delighted to relieve me of $300 for a fix. Shop said the SeaFoam is a waste of money and won't help. Is this something I could fix or does the carb need to be taken apart to make it run right. Other than the idle the machine runs good and looks like new. Is there any other maintenance I should do right away? PO said he changed the oil and filter and air cleaner and put in a new battery. Even though it has low miles and looks good it's an old machine and I hope I didn't buy a money pit. One other thing I'm confused about is that it has a little button on the left handle bar that says 'Manual' but I read somewhere that if that button is set to 'Auto' it will shift automatically. The PO didn't mention that he just said put it in 'High' or 'Low' range and push the yellow 'shift ' button to shift up and down. Does this thing shift automatically when it's not set to 'Manual'? Thanks for any help or suggestions. I hope to get the machine home in the next couple of days after the PO is satisfied my check was good and I'll probably have more questions then.
