04 rincon wont run right???

My rincon sat alot over this summer (it got cranked up and riden a little here and there) and i recently got on it and rode it for a bit and it died. I tried to start it up and it wouldnt start just turn over and back fire and stuff. Then i would keep trying. It would start back up then if i pressed the gas it would die again. Kept doing this and then finally started running right again. Well got on it again yesterday and same thing happened. it would happen with about every 5 or ten minutes of riding. Anyone have a clue what this might be?

I took it out this weekend to try again. It ran fine for 5 minutes of putting around and then it shut off again. I could get it started back up and rev it to the max but as soon as I put it in gear and press the gas and it would die..??? Is this the carb or the spark plug or both? To clean the carb would i just detach every Hose and everything from it and then spray it out with carb cleaner? or is it not that simple?

If it sat for a long time the gas has probably gummed up in your carb. Your carb will need cleaning, and the old gas drained out of the tank, and new put in.

Hey there dirt guy. I posted this on the rincon riders forum as well so I kinda just copied and pasted a few of my posts over there. I did put new gas in in before this started... I guess it could have been to late at that point.. I was reading the sea-foam thread a minute ago.. Do you think a strong dose of sea-foam would get it running with out having to clean the carb?

Maybe, but if it were me I'd pull it and clean it. That way your all set to go and not second guessing the problem. Its easy enough to do, if you search around a little theres a few threads on how to clean carbs. Also be sure to download your manual and follow it step by step...

Whatever is currently in one piece... 400 prairie with stuff, 300 fourtrax, 500 sportsman, yz 125...

i used sea-foam on my 250 FourTrax but it was after i cleaned the carb.and i still had trouble with gunk from the gas tank. but after i installed a inline fuel filter its been working like it should.

So even though I can rev it up to the max while in nuetral but when I put it in gear and press the gas and it stalls points to the carb??? Just want to make sure before I go that "deep".

I just emptied my gas tank by taking off the line going into the carb. The fuel flowed steady like there wasnt a clogging issue. a whole tank of gas drained through and never stopped once ar anything. I don't think it is a clogged petcock or line there. I just replaced the spark plug and havent tried to start it yet. Im going to get a little gas and put back in the tank and put some sea foam in it a see what happens.

your problem is inside your carb..the dirty damage is already done inside the carb..if you want your bike to run right..pull the carb..and give it a good cleaning...read my post in the repair section..'' how to clean a carb''.
