It sounds like it may have flooded or your timing might be off. I would start with the flooding first. Let the bike see for a 30 minutes and try again. If it works and dies out, have the trottle leaned a bit. If thats not the issue try retiming the bike.

My 2006 Honda rancher 350 just quit running while I was driving it. will still turn over but wont start why?

Take fuel cap off to make sure it is getting air to fuel tank. Check fuel valve to make sure it is on. Drain carb with screw on bottom of carb to check for water. Pull spark plug to make sure it is firing.

Engine on powerwasher starts but quits running after approx 10 seconds. Engine oil changed, oil is full & tried choke in various positions. Also has fresh fuel in tank. What else can I do

try cleaning the carb that ethanol plays havoc on these small engines if it is not a premix oil and gas unit add a little 2 cycle engine oil to the gas will keep the carbon builup to a minimum not to much it will gunk up your spark plug take the carb apart and clean it with carb cleaner or deisellet dry check your spark plug make sure it is clean and ok that is where I would start

Every time that I get gas in my 2006 Jeep Wrangler I have problems. Several times the gas pump has not shut off when the tank is full resulting in gas pouring out. Usually the opposite happens, the gas...

Inspect and make sure the vent line from the tank to the filler neck is clear and not kinked and the cannister is not plugged. If both are ok (and usually are) the problem is caused by a sticking control valve on the top of the fuel tank. Unfortunately, the valve is molded into the tank and therefore only serviced with the fuel tank assembly so the tank will have to be replaced.

Runs for about 45 mins then shuts off

Hi there:
make sure to read the full post before to procceed, ok?

When it stops I supposse you try to start it again. What happens??. 1.-Runs again or you have to wait until it cool's off ??
If it starts but stops in the next minute you may have a clogged gas filter.

2.-If it has no gas filter, then you migth be having armature problems, to check just unplug the spark plug and use another one making sure the metal part is in good contact wit the metal part, be really careful the engine is going to be really hot, so use gloves and ask someone to pull the cord as if it were to run and look for spark, If no spark check the oil level to be correct, if so, then let it cool and try for spark if there's spark then the problem is your armature.

3.- Prior to do ANYTHING make sure there's enough gasoline in the tank. You won't believe me but happens quite often.
