my son has a 07 420 rancher he was riding about a month ago when he ran out of gas so he got a can out of the shop that had diesel in it. when i got home it was smoking, i took the tank off and cleaned it good he has run 2 tanks of gas through it and 4 spark plugs, its still smoking and fouling plugs. Do yall think i need 2 put rings in it or what. the guy at the honda shop said keep riding it, it would clear up. what do yall think

I think I'd listen to the honda guy and ride it. Maybe run some seafoam in it for a while to help clean everything up.

diesel shouldn't hurt it, drain the carb bowl from the drain screw..it would probally be better to just take the carb off, and give it a real good cleaning,other than that..keep running it, it should clear up.
