I replaced the carb on a 2005 Rincon that had been sitting for about 8 years. The engine starts and idles, but the ATV is severely underpowered (not going much above 7 MPH). Gas also flows out of the drain hose at the bottom of the carb in a steady stream while the gas is on.

Thoughts?

Yeah, I kinda thought that. I figured that I would have the old carb out of the machine and could rebuild it if this one didn’t work (which it obviously didn’t). Any recommendations on where to get a rebuild kit that isn’t crap?

You can buy OEM rebuild carb parts but Honda sells the bits separately (gasket kit, float valve, etc) so that’s one way to go.

Otherwise look in the manual to find you carb number–link in my sig block; you can sometimes get it from the parts links in my sig block. Verify your carb is an OEM item.

Then search fleabay for your year “2005 Honda trx650 Shindy”. Consider replacing the starter choke valve and primer pump at the same time. Review the carb sticky

Thanks for the info! If you want to read some funny stuff - here is the reply that I got from the Amazon seller that I bought the carb from:

Can you fix this problem? We are willing to give a discount to you.
It's can fit, right?

But that’s why I got it from Amazon - can send it back!!

Thanks again!

So I rebuilt the carb (the original Honda) - as much as I could figure out at least. It starts and runs really well, but the drain at the bottom of the bowl is still free flowing gas. Any ideas?

I couldn’t figure out how to remove the float - it looks like there is a pin there that acts as the hinge. Is there a trick to getting it out? I didn’t want to try too hard and wind up breaking the float off.
