Honda 300ex dies while riding...

Today I went riding and towards the end of the day my quad kept dieing while I was riding it. Just riding like normal and it would start to back fire and then die. Do I need to clean my carb or what?

I am not familiar with Hondas but my banshee had a similar problem and turned out to be the tors, so you may want to check the electrical components.

The Tors is only a Throttle Over ride System that is supposed to protect your motor from over Revs....I dont think the 300EX has one....Banshee, Blaster do I know....

Anyway,,,,When was the last time you adjusted your Valves and Timed it????

You need proper timing, proper valve adjustment , compression, spark , and fuel:cool:

Never. I've only had it since Feb. The guy we bought it from only rode it about twice. Im not sure how often all that needs to be done.

Well......

I cleaned the carb and dumped out the gas tank cuz there was serious dirt in there. I know now to never let my sister in law ride it when im not there. That worked

Oh and I dont have a manual DeadAIM

actually it does have something similar but its built into the electric ignition module, main reason i know is because now that i have the mods done to the bike (or golf cart as you may say lol) i hit the limiter often (well ok might be due to being in second or third climbing big dunes lol)
