1985 Honda trx 250 fourtrax

Recommended Posts

I have a 1985 Honda trx 250 fourtrax. It runs really well for an older bike. The only problem I'm having with it is when I ride it hard for only maybe 5 mins. It wants to shut down. I believe it's because it is getting to hot and needs to cool down. I was looking into getting an oil cooler with a sandwich adapter to fit it to my quad. The thing is I don't think the engines were fitted for this when they were made, so what would make me need this?

It's possible that you have an electrical issue here, sometimes coils fail when they're hot. You should test for spark when it shuts down. There's no need for an oil cooler on those motors if it is being used normally.
