Try balancing ans syncronising the carbs.
Turn the throttle screw on the LEFT carb one half turn inward. Now start the engine and get it warmed up. With the engine running, remove the RIGHT spark plug wire. Adjust the idle speed on the left carb to the point where the engine just can't quite stay running and dies. Now put the loose spark plug wire back into place.

Now turn the throttle screw on the RIGHT carb one half turn inward. Restart and rev the engine. Next, remove the LEFT spark plug wire. Adjust the idle speed on the right carb to the point where the engine just can't quite stay running and dies. Now put the loose spark plug wire back into place.

Turn the idle screw on each carb EXACTLY ONE QUARTER turn outward and restart the engine. The engine will be probably be idling very fast. Adjust both the idle screws equally from this point to get to the desired idle speed.

Remove the air filter and rubber fittings to allow you to see into the throat of both carbs. You may need a mirror to see inside. You need to be able to see the slides go up and down when you twist the throttle. Now turn the fitting where the cable goes into each carb such that there is just a bit of slack in the cable, 1/16" is plenty. Lock ONE of the cable adjusters down tight. All further adjustments will be made on the other carb.

With the motor turned off twist the throttle very slowly while looking at the slides. Both slides need to begin lifting at the exact same moment. If the slides don't raise at the exact same time then slowly twist the throttle until the locked adjuster slide just barely starts to move. Hold the throttle still and turn the adjuster on the other carb so that the slide on that carb just barely starts to move also. Now recheck the slide movement timing. Do this process until the slides on both carbs begin to raise at the EXACT same moment. Lock down the loose adjuster and re-check the slides.

Please rate this solution. Thanks!

If you have used Dyno jet kit I have had a kit come through with smaller main jets than the stock ones causing it to run way to lean.

There seems to be low gas level in the float chamber of the carburator.
Clean the carburator and check the float level and reset.
With the choke 'on' and if you hit the throttle it will die because there is a restriction of the air flow to the carburator.

What can i do to keep my 2004 honda 250 recon from being so cold natured

Are you comfortably taking apart, cleaning and checking your carburetor? Got a lot of experience with the recons - cleaning that carb and checking it out is the #1 place I'd start. Here are your vacuum lines - for the TE TM - I can show you exactly how to tear down, check, set and put back together that carb or most of any other. Just let me know - Thanks, Justin M. 17 South Industries, LLC 2002 2003 2004 HONDA RECON TRX250TM TRX250TE CARB HOSE ROUTING - there's your routing - check all of the hoses first. If they're all fine - take the carb off. If you don't have the specs/tech info just let me know and I'll make sure you see how to do it by the book.

Why does my ATV bog down and die when I keep the throttle wide open?

If you are lucky, you might just need new fuel filter and the fuel bowl cleaned out, and maybe new air filter. If not so lucky you need carburetor rebuilt. Backfire is usaully caused by engine running too lean ( too much air for the amount of fuel present). Fuel bowls get gunk in them and the fuel needles and fuel jets get varnished up. The accelerator pump gets worn out gaskets and/or bellows and doesn't give the right amount of fuel mist when you accelerate.

Full Choke is indicative of a motor starved for fuel

Have honda trx250te atv. It will run when I spray carb cleaner into carb but will not stay running. I looked for carb abstructions and did not see any. Do you have any suggestions

the fuel feed in the tank could be blocked ! when you turn fuel on does the fuel bowl fill up ? did you remove all jets and the emulsion tube above the main jet ? float needle not stuck ? clean all parts and blow out all parts and holes where they fit with an air line ! refit and should be ok !

Atv starts but runs wide open only even though the throttle cable looks like it works fine

Your bike will only run at full throttle if your cable or main jet needle are stuck in the full throttle position .Take your throttle cable off and check that its freely working inside the outer caseing .

You shouldn't need to full throttle constantly. , or at least let up on it periodically so it can dump some heat
