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

      hey so never ran into this before but i recently got a 04 honda rubicon 500.  bought it from my doctor not running and the front brakes were locked up.   cleaned the carb and it fired right up and runs great.  these model atvs have drum brakes front and rear.  not a fan.  lost all brakes on this one when i hit some water and it got inside the rear drum case.  so i ordered new shoes for the rear end no biggie.  front is more complicated.  has hydraulic drum brakes not sure who thought that was a good idea but the pistons in the drums rusted and locked up from it sitting with moisture in the drums.
      so i had a choice to make- 1. buy new brake pistons ($120 for a set of 4) or 2. order super atv's disc brake conversion kit for $250.  i HATE drum brakes so i went with the conversion kit.  it said it was easy to install with no specialty tools.  so i order it and turns out i have to press the studs out of my hubs to get the disc on.
      anyone ever done this and if so how?

      I have a DS 650x available.  Garage kept for its entire life and runs well.  OMF beadlocked wheels.  Located in San Antonio Texas area.  I’m motivated to sell and work with shipping options but serious inquiries only interested in a large sport ATV that won’t come around again.
      Here’s a photo from a few weeks ago.  I can send over more photos, videos, or we can have a FaceTime session to take a look remotely.  Let me know.

      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 .
