2007 Honda Rincon 680 Runs, ride 10 minutes, then dies

Recommended Posts

My quad runs,  it starts up runs for about 10 minutes and then it dies if you let it sit for 10 minutes it’ll start back up ride for another 10 minutes and then die again, trying to figure out why it keeps stalling

Welcome to Quadcrazy @Susan Makowski-DeGraw 

Sounds like a fuel issue to me especially if its only 10 mins in when the problem starts.   Could be wrong but I would check the fuel delivery first.  Since it could be in the tank or the carburetor my first thing would be to cut the fuel line and install an in line clear filter.  This will allow you to see two things. 
1. If the filter shows no fuel inside then you know the tank has a partial blockage.  
2. You will see if the filter is getting dirty. 
If there is a fuel filter already  in place then check/replace it. 
In addition to this you could be experiencing vapor lock.  This happens when the vent hose or hole on the top of the has cap is blocked.  It stops fuel from flowing to the carburetor. loosen up the gas cap and and see if the problem stops.  
If none of that works then it could be inside the carburetor and thats going to take a little work.  Nothing you probably couldn't handle! 
Thats all fuel related items. 

Electrical: Regulator/rectifier could be heating up and failing. Easy enough to get and change. Its plug and play. 
Ignition coil could be doing the same and again its easy as the regulator/rectifier to replace.   

Start with the basic stuff first and go from there.   It could be something silly. I always like having a fuel filter in place though so either way I would add one.

Ok so there is an injector on the bike. There are a few things to look at. 

1. Could be a bad injector that quits after it gets hot.

2. Fuel pump is quitting after that 10 min period. Have you turned the key off and back on to see of it re starts? And if so when you turn it off and turn the key back on listen for the pump coming on.  Its a low sound so listen carefully. Should be a  hissing sound for about 3 seconds or so. If you don't hear that then it may be a pump or relay issue that's getting hot. Every time i turn my rancher off and the key back on i hear that pump come on for a few seconds before i hit the start button. 

3. Your TPS (throttle positioning sensor) could be bad or out of calibration. They sell a calibration tool for that.  

4. Im a little stuck on the regulator/rectifier getting hot and causing this.  

Make a list of the above and tackle one at a time. Im sure i missed a few things to look at and someone will chime in but at least you have a starting point for now.

      Got my Yamaha Grizzly buttoned up finally and went for a quick 2 hour ride in the power lines with my neighbor, who has a Yamaha Kodiak. We have access from his yard, which is nice. Was a beautiful day today to get out and will try to go more often. Ran into two other quad riders with a sportsman and I think grizzly. Also ran into a dirt bike rider. 😎

      posted a while back - it was running at one point - I have all the plastic shroud off - it's down to frame and engine now
      -fuel pump: when line from petcock is attached, no fuel comes out other side to carb; the line to the carb is open (can blow through it); I thought when I cranked engine that the pump would spit out fuel on other side but it does not; I removed fuel pump and opened it up - diaphragm looks good - but internal areas had lotsa calcification build up - I cleaned this out and dried it good - the clear plastic pieces (?diaphragms) aren't broken - the spring w/ steel ball on end moves freely; am putting it back on tomorrow; but can anyone answer about the pump? isn't it supposed to pump fuel through it... to other side... to carb? puzzling
      -along with fuel pump: I replaced petcock 3 weeks ago (gas tank had rusty fuel in bottom - cleaned it out prior to new petcock); when I turn petcock arrow NOT to on or reserve, fuel comes out of line; when I turn it to on or reserve, fuel doesn't come out; puzzling
      -I don't know what's on back of fuel pump - it's a valve that has a hose coming out of it - looks like it goes to engine/carb - I haven't traced this out yet - what is it?
      -can squirt gas on air filter and engine will run for 2-3 seconds then stop - fuel in top of carb (under diaphragm) does same
      -it likely needs carb rebuild - will get to this - but something isn't allowing fuel to get from fuel pump to carb
      -I THINK it has a mikuni model x carb - diaphragm is ID 26mm  OD 68mm - hard to find inexpensive diaphragm, I guess because it's a model x
      -last thing - I replaced solenoid due to old one clicking; I HAVE to be charging the battery or it won't start/turn over - battery just goes dead; but if charging, it'll turn over nicely; i'm guessing it's a bad battery
      -any help appreciated - I've never owned an ATV before - inherited this beast from grandparent in-law

      First time using this forum.  Owned a Kawasaki dirt bike once, had no issues.  But I picked up this 4 wheeler at an auction.  They stated it ran, but only needed a battery.  Well I do not believe that was all true.

      Some pictures are attached.  Not sure why, but the whole air filter stuff was removed.  They had some small thing inserted as a make shift air filter.

      I purchased a battery to try this all out.  Waiting to return it and get the proper size, as it was too big for the battery box.  But here is my issue I had while the battery was connected.

      1 - The lights on the steering column did not come on.  Not sure if they work or not.

      2 - The starter solenoid seems to be bad.  I have a new one on order. 

      3 - In the pick, there is another rusted part.  Not sure what that part is or what it is used for.

      4 - What is the 12v rectifier?  square bodied part.

      So when I hooked the battery up.  Pushing the start button did nothing.  Pulling the cord to try and pull start, it turned, but would never fire.  I have put in a new spark plug as well, it looked worn out.  With electric start, I crossed over the posts on the start solenoid, it turned over, but would never fire and start.

      I have read a few other threads and it stated something about needed the neutral light on.  SOmething about a kill switch.

      Any help would be appreciated.
