Okay so I just got 300ex. It will turn over and it tries to start but it wont run. I've tried checking to see if the starter was bad, but it seemed ok. When compared to our other quads it sounds like its not getting any gas, but I don't know how to fix it. I've already checked all the basics such as clean gas and making sure the fuel was on but I'm not sure where to go from here.

Probably a carb gummed up. Will mostlikely need a carb clean and rebuild. But to confirm this spray some starting fluid into the intake tube and see if it starts and runs on that for a few seconds. If it does your engine has the ability to run so it is just a fuel issue. The problem is all the other engine failures internally will have the same symptom. So if it fires on starting fluid your confident the engine can run. Welcome to the forums!
