Did start  but temperamental on start button it's a 2003 ajmboy 

When you say temperamental, is it in terms of slow cranking or just wont catch and start? Wondering if the battery is good.

      I bought a roughish Honda rancher TRX350TM3 and I am having trouble locating the vin number - I would like know year and specs as is it rough , it runs but has multiple little issues ( choke cable seems frozen , carb has sticky or ill adjusted float and leaks gas from bottom of carb , shut off valve needs new o-ring to stop leaking , ect)  just age and lack of maintenance issues , but I need to know what it is to get correct specs … I was told there would be a tag on front end of frame but I don't see one . Any help would be greatly appreciated .

      My Rancher cranks right up and runs great for a while and then it will suddenly sputter out and die. It usually cranks right back up and again runs great for a while and then same thing. Yesterday it got to where it acted like it wasn't going to crank back up a few time but eventually did. Any suggestions??

      Happy New Year all! Remember not to operate any vehicles while under the influence, you could get busted or worse, you could get hurt or hurt someone else who's playing it safe and end up in jail. Have fun and be safe.

      I have a 2005 Honda Rancher 2-stroke. It's been sitting for a while. Yesterday I started it up and it idles well.
      When I tried to drive it, it bogs down and misses when I accelerate. Drained fuel, added new fuel and carb
      cleaner, and let it idle for a few minutes. It still bogged down, and I noticed a fuel leak under the carb. There's
      a tube from the bottom of the carb with something that looks like a filter. The gas was leaking from the end
      of the tube. Anyone have any ideas as to what the tube is, and what it actually does?
