Honda rancher running problems

i have tried a new fuel pump it seemed to help just a little but not much at all.
Could it being out of time or the valves be outa wack to make it run bad as if it was wanting to miss or die while riding

Important info Kentco is saying cause if it's an EFI there's many little things that'll screw it up.

1993 Honda 300

Seafoam "In every tank"

Mobil1 4T 10w-40 (great stuff)

Superwinch Terra 35/synthetic rope, !/4 inch plate winch mount.

AMS Swampfox front 23x8x11, GBC dirt devils 25x12x9 rear. Soon to be changed to 4x4 wheels rear and STI Black Diamonds all around

Diehard Gold lawn tractor battery in rear storage box.

I respectfully disagree with the above statement as Fuel Injection is dramatically more reliable than carburetion. If it wasn't, then you wouldn't see FI in every new vehicle sold, on new Powersports Vehicles, boats, motorcycles, atv's, and now, even Stihl is coming out with a fuel injected chainsaw!

Didn't mean it like that I didn't say anything about carbs were better I ment that any little thing from a dirty connection to a sensor that's dirty or a weak electrical signal from the computer to injectors can really mess things up.

I should've said it in my statement that any little thing can go out in a fuel injection system or electrical issue can do damage big time. It's being took the wrong way. And that ends my explanation.
