Cold blooded Honda Rincon?

Any ideas for curing a really cold blooded Honda Rincon 250? I'm willing to admit I'm not much of a mechanic, but the wheeler starts and runs fine but doesn't idle well and especially not cold. Simple fix? Suggestions?

I've got same Honda '07 model and problem as you. I adjusted [ raised ] idle control speed needle on carb last winter. The owner's manual [ stored under the rider seat ] shows needle location and describes procedure. You'll need a small standard screwdriver to do this. Just make sure motor is warm when you adjust idle speed. Good luck.

Do you mean a Recon 250?

I don't know the answer to your problem but my brother had a rincon and it's a cold blooded sob also. We have owned and ran Honda four wheelers since dad starting buying them in the late 80's, and I've never seen one as cold blooded as the Rincon.

I have an 2003 Rincon and I have the same problem. The 2004 Rancher is really good though, is it the bigger engine or what?

the EFI machines are better than the carbed versions.

Vehicles have to meet a standard to become green sticker compliant in states like California and are jetted lean from the factory.

Sometimes a simple jetting change will fix the issue. Other times it may be a simple air/fuel mixture screw that needs to be adjusted.

The issue with the Rincon is that the oil for the transmission is the same as the crankcase, so it takes a while to warm it up enough to make the wheeler move without stalling. I'm assuming those that are wondering about the Rincon are talking about why it won't move right away.

As for the Recon 250, I have no idea. Like others have said, I would try to turn the idle up on the carb and see what that does.
