    Any ATV mechanics?

    I have a 2012 Honda Rancher EFI with very low milage.... It starts to cut out and backfire at higher speeds between 25-30mph or so... Other than that it idles and runs perfect. It has fresh clean fuel but has sat up for longer than I should have let it sit up with ethanol fuel in it... I brought it to work with me and was going to try to locate the fuel filter (which I believe is in the fuel pump housing) and check it out.. Do any of you guys have any ideas or pointers? Thanks in advance!

    Before you tear into anything give some seafoam a shot. Follow the recomended dose for cleaning and see how that does first. Stuff is pretty goo .

    This. Also check the air filter and air intake tube for obstructions like leaves, wasp nest and such.

    Very common for rodents to make homes in the air box causing problems or dirt divers build inside the exhaust. Both of which can cause you trouble. Remove existing fuel and replace with some fresh fuel and seafoam.
    Hope this helps.

    Thanks guys, I have already ran seafoam through it and air box is clean as a whistle...I literally have under 100 miles on this thing.. I pulled the fuel pump off yesterday and pulled it apart to get to the filter which to me seemed a little dirty.. Hope to pick up a new filter today and see what happens.. Thanks again.

    We think alike... I pulled it off to bring with me to pick up a
    new one while I'm there!
