sounds like your carb has water in it, most likely from water getting into your carb vent somehow. turn your fuel off and turn the screw on the bottom of the carb near the overflow tube out to drain all the water/fuel in your carb, then tighten the screw. turn your fuel on and she should fire up with a little choke(cuz the carb is empty). then it sould run good(if this is actually the problem).

^^^Agreed, the foreman's carb vent hangs down towards the skid plate and has a check valve on the end of it which is notorious for failing. Once you drain your carb either re-route the vent or plug it with something like a golf tee when you ride.

09 foreman es,.,.,.on the right side i see idle screw,primer, both with knob you can turn by hand. to drain carb. is it the yellow flat tipped screw on right of carb. or is there a screw on bottom of bowl???i possibly have water in carb. if it's the yellow flat tip, i loosened it almost all the way out and nothing drained even with gas on??

the drain is on the bottom of the carb right beside the the drain line, just unscrew it and let it drain for about 10-15 seconds.
