hello I recently perches'ed a 1999 honda fourtrax 300 4X4 and it was burning oil so I got a gasket kit and took the engine apart removed the old gaskets and seals and installed the new ones then put it back together and adjusted the timing then I went to start it and I had to give it a bit of throttle for it to start and the it would run really rough. Why? It allways ran vary well and smooth.

I think you are off track , first thing was to take a compression test , clean the carb , tank , petcock and get fresh fuel in it , adjust the valves all before disassembling the engine , and you can't judge the condition of a piston , rings or jug by looking at it ------------
