We have a Honda Rancher 2001 TRX 350 FM, it will start as long as you manually pump gas into carb and will die as soon as that gas burns, its like it can't get gas. Any ideas as to what this may be?
Thanks,
Angie

Sounds like maybe the fuel bowl on the carb isn't bringing in enough gas. On the fuel bowl back out the drain screw and see if gas is flowing out the drain hose. If not try tapping fuel bowl with a screwdriver or the like and see if starts flowing out then. Sometimes this will work for a temporary fix, sometimes the float valve will stick. I suggest cleaning the carb..
