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!

      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?

      So I’ve got a 2000 Honda 400ex absolutely love it!! I’ve had it for about a month, I ride with bruteforce 750’s, outlander 850’s and 1000 sxs’s and I was thinking of getting a trx450r carb and a full hmf exhaust. And probably doing the air box mod too, how much power would this give my 400? Just a little different or a big difference? Cuz if it’s not much of a different I’ll just stick with my dg slip on..... thanks!

      Good morning!
      I have a 1999 Yamaha Big Bear 350 4X4 and I need to rebuild the carb. I have the dual-cable throttle model and I'm having a terrible time finding the correct kit for it. I'm not opposed to replacing it, but the only ones I'm seeing do not have the dual cable throttle system. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Thanks,
      Jay in WI
       
      P.S. I can send pictures if necessary.

      Let's just say there was a little fire on the old Griz and the carburetor didn't do too well. Is there an aftermarket carb on the market or do I have to go Yamaha to get this?
      Thanks in advance
