2005 Honda Rancher bogs down and misses when accelerate

Recommended Posts

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?

That tube at the bottom has a one way check valve. Thats probably what you seeing and that is an overflow vent. That is overflowing because your seat and fuel bowl is probably clogged with gunk and thats the cause for both the drivability and the fuel leaking. Remove the carburetor disassemble it and clean it. Or get a nee carburetor

Gas is coming from that tube because your floats probably stuck Just clean/ rebuild your carb and if all else fails a new carb isnt too expensive and youll probably gain power.

Yikes. Just had the entire fuel system rebuilt last September. But, I'll have the guy take a look at it, again.

Open up your carb ,the leak is the overflow hose the float needle must be dirty so it doesnt shut anymore . Quite an easy job ,i would recomend à full cleanup of the carb because it must have gunk up from sitting for a while next time you lets à machine sit for some time it would be à good idea to add fuel stabilizer

      Hello. I am a new member as of today. I had a quick question to ask. I recently was driving mt HONDA RANCHER 2004 GPSscape 400 and my display stopped working. I was driving the atv and all of a sudden the speedometer and the service lights went out. Also the lights stopped working. I am still able to shift gears, change from 2wd to 4wd, and can still select if I want EPS or Auto. I have checked my fuse box and have changed a few of them around. It did not change anything. I was wondering if anyone had any idea of what had happend. Thank you for your time- Trenton

      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??

      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 .

      Hi all, new to this forum so thanks in advance for the help.

      I have recently brought a 2013 power steering fuel injected foreman 500.

      It has a crack in the front casing and was running rough. I have since replaced the front engine casing and this has made no difference to the engine performance.

      It starts and idles but bogs down and starts to die once throttle is applied.

      It maybe be but it also sounds very load.

      I have uploaded a video link of it.

      I need a repair manual for a 2004 and a 2005 sportsman 90 and I found a 2006 manual for cheap money. Is it worth getting and will it cover everything for the 04 and 05

      Yeah I know its been a while since I've been on but, I've recently aquired a 2005 Polaris ATP 500. As ya'll well know I'm sure that these things are notorious for faulty ECMs and they are made of unobtanium. I got this one from my brother. I've unpotted the old ECM and tested the components and have concluded that they don't flow the board properly from the factory so that's why they crap out.  I've also done some research and found that if you take the harness and Stator and flywheel from a 2004 its basically a plug & play application and it eliminates the need for the ECM. Why the heck they put it in anyways is beyond me. I'm going to devise a way to make a plug & play adapter harness that eliminates the need for the ECM and restores the wheeler to use. Has anyone tried this before and had any luck? I've been trying to locate a wiring diagrams online so I can compare the 2004 to the 2005 but they're pretty hard to find.
