Sounds like the fuel line or gas valve at the bottom of the tank has a restriction.  

I would take the fuel line off of the carb and put it in a can of some sort and open the valve make sure there is good flow. 

If that is not the case then it would be inside the carburetor like a stuck float or something inside one of the jets. 

Thats easy enough to take apart and clean out. 

Was the bike sitting at all for a bit ?

Yes setting for about a year. I would start it once in a while and it starts right up. Starting riding it and it ran good for about a mile then die. If it sits for awhile it will start again but only for a short time. Thanks for the info. I took the fuel pump off but don't really think that is the problem. I turned gas  on and no gas in line, put it on reserve and had a full steam. That's the part I don't understand.

So I would drain the fuel out and take that gas valve off of the tank.  You can take it apart , usually a few screws that hold the thing together The main fuel port inside that patcock valve is prob clogged.  

Be carfeull not to damage the rubber gasket inside.  

I would also clean the carb as well. I have a feeling that float is not moving freely.  

Might as well do it now while your at it! 

Good luck!

      Trying to replace the carburetor on my 2003 Bear Tracker 250. Two brand new carbs in a row from different suppliers.   Both leak fuel out over flow and intake as soon as I turn the gas on. Any ideas. Am I doing something wrong?

      1987 YFM350FWTB 350 4x4 Big Bear when going uphill will sometimes act like the clutch realeases then re-engauge all at once.
      Seems to maybe be little more often if the engine is at about 1/2 throttle instead of at lower rpms.
      I have the Factory Service manual and checked the external clutch adjustment screw as ok and the H/L/reverse shifter lever linkage as adjusted correctly. It appears to be maybe a internal (inside the case) clutch issue or ??
      This is the type Big Bear that has the manual shift lever on the left front fender and has the manual foot shifter lever with 5 speeds forward.
      Can someone tell me how the primary and secondary clutch operates? 
      I assume one is mechanical and one is centrifugal. (what I'm asking is one clutch for the higher rpms and one for the lower rpms or ???. (the clutch appears to only momentarily release at the higher rpms is why I ask. The cycle has about 3000 miles of low speed through the brush hunting and has been well maintained, oil changed, etc and no deep water or mud useage.
      Anyone been into a similar issue with the big Bear ATV????

      got 7 atvs off CL recently for a good price.  one of which is a yamaha warrior.  anyone know where the vin is printed on this bike?  Haha good place to start as I do not know year or size yet.  The former owner says needs exhaust ans and clutch work.  he said it ran fine until the clutch cable broke and then I couldn't get the new cable adjusted right and it would grind gears.  things I see:  clutch cable locked up again, no brakes, carb leaking (green with algae around the bowl and has gelled gas stalagtights on it), aftermarket exhaust melted the airbox so I need something different and a new air box.  I would like the use the current exhaust if I can but I have a feeling its a redneck fix as it looks like there is an ace bandage holding it to the exhaust pipe (its an aftermarket slip-on exhaust), so I'm not sure about that- lets get the bike running first.  also, battery (looks brand new, what a shame) is dead, 0 volts.  Otherwise, bike looks to have not been wrecked, and plastics are ok (it sat outside under a 'tarp' for 3+ years since it was run last).  any tips and advise on where to start first would be awesome as this is my first clutched bike (manual).
      the clutch is my main concern- I've never rode a clutched bike so I dont even know what its supposed to feel like.  lol I'm spoiled on my automatic polaris
