No for best results the Carburetor needs to be removed and completely disassembled. This helps in cleaning out the jets and small passages, Recommended to be done by an experienced mechanic in that field.

Why won't the carburetor on your Honda recon trx250 atv get any fuel?

There are various possibilities. One is that the fuel line is clogged. Make sure the fuel line is free of dirt and clean. Another thing, the carburetor float may be stuck. Third, old gas could have jellied inside the carburetor which makes for dissassembly and cleaning. Still another possibility is a clogged fuel jet. I would advise taking the carburetor apart and clean it after checking the fuel line, since if cleaning the fuel line won't help then it is a carburetor problem.
