Hey guys im new to the forum!!! I have a 2004 Honda Rubicon 500 and it has sat for about 3 years....the reason it sat was becuase it made grinding noises in the front end like the front end was messes up. has less than 100 hours thouugh....so i added all new diff fluid and now it wont run....what do i need to do to a 4wheeler that has sat for almost 4 years now? Carb clean? Spark plug?

Thanks Guys!!

Did it run before you changed the fluid? Yep, clean the carb, check the plug, drain the gas tank, change the filter, check the air filter for mouse nests, etc.

Welcome to the forums!

Remove it, completely disassemble it and clean it with carb cleaner, reassemble and it should run. Some torch tip cleaners or thin wire may be needed to clean some of the passages but overall it shouldn't be a very difficult job.
