I have an 05 Suzuki Vinson 500 quadrunner 4X4 that
The sticky stuff is normal. On a lot of dirt bikes and 4 wheelers they have air filters that you are to wash either with a filter cleaner or gas and then you spray them down with a light oil and then wring them out until they have no extra oil in them and the oil helps filter the dirt out of the air heading into the engine. It does look in your picture like it is needing a cleaning.

I got a 2005 Suzuki vinson and when it starts it will only idle for a minute then it will try to run backwords any suggestions
What makes you think its trying to run backwards...?? On a 4-stroke - this is odd!! .... I don't think a 4 stroke will run backwards!!.. (But, I have actually seen a two-cycle engine run backwards.... just retard the timing to zero).
1. Have you changed the spark plug?
2. Have you had the carb cleaned and set by a professional
3. Have you put in a new air filter.
4. Have you had the timing checked..(with a timing light)
If the engine actually runs backwards it will cause engine damage.. all the moving parts are designed, clearances are set, and fuel/air intake and cam timing are all designed for the engine to turn in one direction,,, when it does turn backwards, the valve train clearances are taken up and sometimes the valves will hit the pistons...(on a V-8 the cam chain controls all this..its "slack" only works correctly in one direction).. Please do 1 through 4 and repost with the results, Thank yoe

Drive belt gets hot on suzuki vinson 500 why
This is the drive system for your quad... it take all the engine power and transfers it to the rear wheels,, its going to get hot,, If it starts smoking real bad... and smells worse.. drop by your local Suzuki dealer and talk to the service manager,, get his opinion.

I have 2005 500 suzuki atv
Could be flooding. That usually only occurs when you have excess fuel lighting off in the exhaust. I have seen it happen on cars when the timing is way off. I would pull the carb and check the float level and replace the float valve.

Does not want to idle
I do need more information to truly help you. Has the ATV (??..engine size, carb, fuel inj., year,??..etc.).. been sitting for a while...the carb is probably in need of a simple cleaning (all internal passages), a new spark plug, clean/treat or replace the air filter will probably get it running!
Please post more info.
