Losing Power in higher Gears

7533 Views 6 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  retro
I have a Have an 05 Honda Rancher 350es. I sat up for a while and would not idle very hard to start. Rebuilt the carb and now it starts fine...idles. ATV loses power as I go up in gears. Pulls well in first...tops out in second. When I shift into third is when I start having trouble. Tops out about 17 or 18 Mph and gets no faster in forth or fifth. It seems like it starts bogging down. Any advice?

Thanks in advance

As stated, the issue is very likely fuel related. After checking all the above mentioned, you may need to go back in the carburetor again for another cleaning. Keep in mind, once you cleaned everything (carb, etc.) and got it running small fragments of trash get to moving around in the tank, line, etc., and get back into the carburetor, so I've seen cases where you have to repeat this a couple of times.
