hello. I have 2 Honda Recon 250es bikes doing the exact same thing. the bike will not run(spits- bogs - no power) unless the choke is a little less than half way on. this to me would indicate a vaucum leak because you are blocking air flow when the choke is applied. I have checked all of my vaucun lines, removed the carb , cleaned and checked the bowl for trash and cleaned , and checked all mounting bolts. Is there a chance that the boot connecting the carb to the head is cracked or is therr possibly something i am overlooking. please help.

Welcome to the forums. It could be the carb boot cracked. You can check it by spraying carb cleaner on the boot while the ATV is running. If the boot is leaking, the engine will change speeds when the carb cleaner hits it. When you cleaned the carb, did you clean the jets good and clean out the passageways in the carb body? Sometimes it's easy to miss something.

as far as i can tell i cleaned all the jets and blew them out w/ compressed air- tried the trick with carb cleaner but never could get it to change rpms - it is kinda hard to get to the bottom of the boot- i think my next step is to change the boot and try it to see what happens
