1994 honda trx300

My 1004 honda trx300 starts up and sometimes idles good, sometimes not so good. If bike is running and I grab the bike and shake it the bike will stall or try to stall. What should I be looking at to fix issue?

I'd check the  float level  in the  carb  for a  start .. I'm  not sure  how  that  carb is jetted,  but  there  is also  a possibility  there  is  a  little  water  in the  float bowl....just enough that  when  you  agitate it  it gets  a sip  of  it  and stumbles..  Beyond those guesses I would  say   it   will  be  a search...loose  wire somewhere in the  ignition circuit?

Has it been sitting for long periods of time ?? Possible gummed up carb ?

No. The bike is used a bit. Belongs to sister and her 18 yr old beats the crap out of it. Have ordered a carb rebuild kit so will pull it apart and soak in varesol tank before rebuild. Thanks for all the info everyone. Great site.

      So we have a 2000 BearTracker 250cc. We got hit by a tornado and it got flooded out. Water was well over the handle bars and it actually moved almost 40 yards by the water. Anyway, I've pulled the carb and drained the tank. New fuel and a "clean" carb. It fires right up first crank like it used to but bogs down after you try and give it any gas. Think it could still be a carb issue? Carb had a fresh rebuild in April and might have 10-12 hours on it since. After we got it out, It was never started until I took the carb off and cleaned it along with draining the tank. Carb has now been off twice with no differences. Any other ideas?
      also the water seems to never end in the exhaust. I've gotten out as much as I could but it's still steaming quite a bit like there's more in there. Could this be the problem? I've never had an ATV get flooded out like this one before. Any help or other ideas would be great. Thanks yal.

      I have a 2009 recon that I just replaced the piston rings on. It was running and smoking really bad, so I replaced the rings. I put everything back together now it won't start. It's getting fuel, compression, spark, and occasionally a backfire through the carb. If anyone could help, that would be awesome.

      After I rebuilt the card it seems to have a faster idle than before. I have tried to adjust the idle screw but will only speed idle up, not slow it down. What should I look for in adjustments. I purchased a card rebuild kit.

      Bought a 01 bear tracker and a trailer from a local guy last week. I rebuilt the carb 2 days ago and ran damn near perfect for 2 hours. Parked it and came back the next day. It suddenly won't hold an idle at all and pops when I'm going downhill or at a slow speed. Almost like I'm dragging the whole power train with the weight of the ATV. It still has decent power (80-90% maybe as it is now) but I can't figure out why it's popping and won't hold an idle suddenly. even with messing with the idle screw next to the bowl on the exterior of the carb. No changes. . ANY ideas would be great. I'm far from a carb king, but I've never had this issue before. The fuel was bought 2 days ago and it has a brand new intake manifold as of yesterday when I rebuilt the carb (whole rebuild kit). I sprayed around the carb and did not find any leaks. 
       
       Thanks y'all.
