What's up all new to the site and hoping someone could help. I have a 2005 rincon that sat for a year before I bought it. after changing all the fuild and changing the battery I could not get the carb to stop leaking out of the overflow. So I bought a new carb from honda. the problem is I can't get the quad to start now. It wants to but it just seems that there is not enough gas getting to the motor. the couple times I did get it to start it ran fine. just at first all it wants to do is turn over. please help with any suggestions

Welcome to the forums. Pull the gas hose off and make sure you're getting gas to the carb, from the tank. If the 4-wheeler was running when you took the old carb off, I would take the new one back and try to get another one. If not, then you'll have to take the carb apart and look for the problem.

there was gas going to the carb before and after the new carb, almost seems like the idle jet is to small. the new carb is from the factry so I'm scared to mess with it to much.

Is the 4-wheeler stock? I would try to take the carb back and get another one. Sometimes you can get a bad carb. It's been known to happen.

quad is all stock, I assume the jet that where set with the carb are all stock. like I said it runs fine when I finally get it started but I have a really hard time getting it to run. what about the idle "slow" jet?? (clogged??)

I don't know what I was thinking, but did you try adjusting the pilot screw on the new carb? That could be the problem. Try loosening the pilot screw about 1/2 turn and see if that helps.

You could have probably just changed the float valve and valve seat on your old one. That's what's wrong with them when they leak out the overflow.

yes..that little ..hard to reach..can't get a screw driver to...is the air/fuel mixture..lol..anyway..take my advice..send the carb back if you can..and get you your money back...then..with the old carb..and the money you wasted on a new one..go buy a carb rebuild kit..save you alot of money !..like helmut said..fuel was leaking out your float because your float needle is bad..for around 25 to 30 bucks..you can get a carb rebuild kit..replace all your old jets and so forth..and it will run like new.
