Question Honda Rancher 350 ATV won't start

I started up my Rancher after the winter and after about 20-30 seconds it stopped. I have been unable to start it again. It will fire briefly when I inject fuel vapor into the air cleaner. I have drained and changed the gasoline and have added a carburetor cleaner to the new gas. I have sprayed carb cleaner into the air intake. Not even a pop. No gas. What next?

Welcome to the forums.

Can we assume that as part of the winterization process..... you turned off the gas to the engine and ran the carburetor dry ?

If you didn't.... your carb is now gummed up from last years gasoline with ethanol. It will need to taken apart and completely cleaned.

I think PJ max hit it right. Corn is good on the cob but not in a gas tank. Spray cleaners do not clear the jets and passages in the carb and most additives will help if added before storage, but not after. It's tear down time.
