2013 Honda Rancher 420 Dies After Running

Recommended Posts

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??

Sounds like a fuel issue. Is it fuel injected or carb?

Sounds like a carburetor problem like I had. Probably likes to run when choked. I think that is a carburetor model so the fix is fairly simple. Disconnect it and unscrew the bottom float assembly. Probably some small screws inside with holes in them. take them out and clean the screws. Here is a good youtube video that helped me.  It is about a small atv carb but it is the same (probably) for most carbs.

the 2013 rancher is fuel injected sounds like dirty filter or junk fuel. Also, the tank has a breather hose coming from the fuel cap if this is pinched or blocked the tank will create a vacuum AGAINST the fuel pump so check your breather hose isn't clogged first.

      recently picked up some project bikes off CL for cheap.  got a honda fourtrax (the ancient 4x4 kind with the straight axle in the front as well as the rear and a back-up kick-start)  plastics are crap, but my goal is to get running like a champ and patch the plastics up and sell to one of my many friends that want a reliable 4x4 for dirt cheap and doesnt care what it looks like.
      so the former owner says it needs carb rebuilt, but its sat for 3+ years since so who knows.  things I see:  carb is missing (he gave me a box of parts along with the bike), engine turns over and feels good with kick-start, brakes need work, battery missing (That always puts me off, cause then I know most likely someone's been tampering with the electrical.

      Someone broke into a barn located at the residence by prying the door open around a lock and removing the four wheeler. It did not have a key with it so there could be damage to the ignition or had the key tumbler replaced. It had a big NC Hunter’s Safety sticker on the gas tank. This belonged to my daughter who loved to be a country girl along with her cousins. Image is a stock image

      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 .

      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?
