Honda Need transmission help!!!!

Recommended Posts

I am trying to get transmission information from someone who knows what they are talking about. I have a TRX 250 X. Not the EX. 1st, 2nd, and 3rd work properly. The machine can NOT be shifted into 4th or 5th under power

of any kind. It will only shift into these gears after I let the machine roll for a bit then it will go in to them. After I do shift into the gears, it will go with no clutch slippage. Where would the problem be so I can fix this. I have to slow to about 50 mph to get 4th and about 60 to get fifth. Help me please! This machine tops out at 87 to 93 mph when working properly. Thanks in advance for any good advice that is given.:bonk:

That's an amazing little 250 you have there that will hit 93 mph. 95% of 450's can't hit 85!

He stated "mph"......quite and amazing feat for a little TRX250.

Actually, I don't think a TRX would hit 70 so yeah, I call bullshit!

Well judging by the lack of mechanical knowhow of the majority of people on here including a certain moderator I can understand the nay-saying. I was told the same thing about a 65 mph atc 185s but it has been confirmed.

And yes with proper gearing,piping, and jetting this is well within the capability of a "little" 250. If I decide to go with a larger than stock bore, which I may, Triple digits although low, are possible. Does a 250 Ninja go over 90? Again a little 250. I haven't said anything about the exacting specifications of the rebuild or the way I ported or polished the intake and exhaust ports. Nor anything about carb air and fuel flow, custom built exhaust to exacting specs, possibly expensive and extensive tire size and selection processes. So I guess if you want to say BS good for you. But until you spend the amount of time that I have on research and development keep your obviously inexperienced nose out of things. Everyone else, please feel free to offer any info you may have.

Why would you come here for help if the majority are lacking mechanical knowledge??/ Are you pulling in the clutch or shifting under power?? If you are properly using the clutch than I would suspect an internal transmission problem. Split the cases and inspect the trans.

Please help me put together a list of mods for my 400. I'm shooting for 148mph. Since it's about 40 percent larger than your 250 it should be about 40 percent faster, as well. Lousy comparison, huh? Kinda like comparing a Ninja street bike to an ATV, though.

Dude, a 250X couldn't reach 93mph if it fell from an airplane, literally. Give it up. You're not going to convince anyone otherwise...

I'm normally not a combative person, but since you're here(full of BS) spouting off about our lack of mechanical knowledge and inexperience I felt the need to say something. Good luck with your quad and the whole delusions of grandeur thing...

Well I would never thought thar this thread would go to this but OK... Don't ask for help if your going to be negative on our answers. Perhaps if you left out the mph you can achieve with the little 250ex would have helped some.

Isn't the 250ex shaft driven????

oh sorry 250X, still to fast for me....

Seems to me that any guy who could modify a little 250X to hit 93 mph could fix his transmission woes w/o our help.

      Hi all!

       I've got an issue, one of many when it comes to bikes. I searched throughout all the pages I could find pertaining to my situation and couldn't find very much useful information.
      So the issue is, the bike has no electric start.... until it's hot enough to melt steel that is. It will bump start first time every time. But I can sit and crank the starter over for ever and it'll never start until the charger is bumped up past 200 amps. Not good.

       The story so far,
      Got the bike for 1k cash. Guy said it has no spark and no second gear. This particular guy also only ever rode newer crotch rockets. Brought it home pulled the choke, attached battery charger and she fired right up. Ran like absolute crap, but oh well I figure it's an older bike with only 10k miles so it probably needs a good carb cleaning. Took the carb apart and didn't know I messed something up until way later(didn't tighten down main jet). Oh well she runs well enough if I can get her started. Moved from California to Oklahoma. Eventually found the money to fix 2nd gear, and as I am a certified Honda small engine technician apprentice I figured it would be no big deal. Completely tore down engine to it's roots replaced 2nd, and 5th gear(because 5th gear connects to 2nd on the countershaft) dogs were worn pretty badly on both. The engine looked quite good compared to most others I've seen. Put the engine back together as per the service manual. Did all the right steps including loosening the banjo bolts to test for proper oil pressure. I even tore apart the electric starter to clean the contacts and the brushes and replace the dielectric grease. Adjusted the valves as per the service manual, replaced all gaskets, o-rings, seals, and oil filter.
       Finally after about a month of waiting on parts and reassembly I get to start her, only she doesn't. Electric start is still giving me the same issues I've always had. So I replaced the Ignition coil, CDI box, and put a new battery in, plus the starter motor rebuild. Nothing. Still cranks forever. I said what the heck and tried to push it slightly down hill and bump start it, and voila... fired right up! Once she gets hot enough and the stator charges the battery enough it'll electric start... sometimes.
       So I looked towards ignition, used a tool called ignition mate. Pretty awesome tool if you can afford it. Well while cranking the ignition mate reads the spark plug is getting 1-4kw of "spark" every cycle, well it only fires after getting up past 5kw sometimes 6-8kw. And sometimes the ignition would be intermittent as in it wouldn't give any spark at all. I cycle the ignition and it seems to soft reset the bike as it will usually give it back spark. I tested this with the new and old CDI box, the old one would never spark. Ever. So I threw it in the trash. A month later I stil l can't figure it out.
       Is there something I'm missing?

      TL;DR
      Bike won't start using electric start only bump start before and after engine rebuild
      Electric start works after pushing the starter past about 200 cold cranking amps or when hot.

      30 years ago I sold my beloved 1985 CR500. I was young and needed money for a car. I had a lot of fun on that bike and some of the best dirt bike memories were made on it. Out of all the bikes I've owned it's the only one I regret selling. I've had opportunities to buy a 85 cr500 before but never pulled the trigger figuring leave the fond memories in the past. Well today I couldn't pass up the bike any longer. I found me a nice project bike to take up some free winter time. The bike is all there and it runs but most importantly it was cheap. Not the prettiest but it's mine. With lots of money and time it shall be returned to it's former glory and be ready to make some new memories.

      Has anybody purchased/used one of these Arrowhead IHA6017 cdi boxes??  I tried 2 different ones of these on a 1987 and 1994 XR200R, and the bikes won't even start.  Bikes just pop and backfire, had to put the old cdi's back on.  I noticed when I ordered the boxes they stated "advance ignition curves" in the specs.  The box is also much bigger than the stocker and won't fit in the rubber mount.  I didn't mess with moving around the timing to try and get these to work....I just sent them back.
