    Honda 1986 trx250r

    Hey everybody, I have 2 separate 86 trx250r motors that I'm having the same exact issue with and need ur help. I split the cases on both motors and replaced the crank bearings and crank seals on both with all new gaskets and piston and rings. After the motors were all back together and in the bikes I fired them up and both are leaking the air/fuel mixture directly below the crank through the center case where they meet together. Has anyone else ever had this issue?
  2. Well I got my wheeler up and running after 2 months of waiting on parts. After I got it broken in, i noticed the head gasket leaking. Well, it turned out to be a stripped valve cover bolt that ran from the cover all the way to the cylinder block. So i put a heli-coil in it, and when i was putting it all back together, another one stripped. Then another on the other side. I'm torquing them down to the spec 13ft-lbs. is this a common problem? Has anyone else had this issue?

    Honda The 2015 Honda Pioneer 500

    Honda has created a compact, affordable, trail-capable two-person side-by-side that works hard and plays hard. TIMMONSVILLE, SC - May 21, 2014 - (Motor Sports Newswire) - Following the successful launch of the revolutionary 2014 Pioneer™ 700 and Pioneer 700-4, Honda continues its side-by-side expansion with the 2015 Pioneer 500. Compact, versatile and fun, the two-person Pioneer 500 side-by-side is equally adept at off-road recreation or tackling a wide variety of work applications. Best of all it provides and outstanding value for the market: It combines Honda's legendary durability, quality, and reliability with an $8,499 suggested retail price. Sized to fit on trails that impose width restrictions—as well as in the bed of a full-size pick-up truck—the Pioneer 500 was designed by Honda R&D in Ohio, and built at Honda South Carolina (HSC) in Timmonsville using domestically and globally sourced parts. Its compact size and affordable price provides attainable access into the side-by-side category for a larger group of four-wheel customers. Size matters Recreational riders are encountering restrictions in more and more off-road areas: trail access for off-road vehicles is limited to those with a width no greater than 50 inches—narrower than many full-sized side-by-sides. With its brand-new steel ladder-frame chassis and compact 50-inch width, the Pioneer 500 is designed to fit 50-inch limited access trails and allows for convenient home storage. Overall length is 102.5 inches, and a modest 73.1-inch wheelbase helps return agile handling and a tight turning radius of only 13 feet. Double-wishbone suspension front and rear with durable steel A-arms yield 5.9 inches of travel that's plush enough for a comfortable ride, yet progressive enough for most off-road trails. The rear shocks offer spring preload adjustability to alter the ride for light or heavy loads. The rear suspension also features a stabilizer bar system, reducing body roll when cornering. 24 x 8-12 tires help give the Pioneer 500 a quality steering feel and ride. Powered by Honda's proven longitudinally mounted 475cc liquid-cooled overhead valve single-cylinder four-stroke engine, the Pioneer 500 features plenty of low-end torque, and a smooth easy-to-use powerband that makes it fun to use in a wide range of environments. Honda's Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) system ensures accurate fuel metering and great throttle response under many different riding conditions, including high-altitude operation. Additionally, the Pioneer 500 incorporates an oxygen sensor and catalytic converter in the durable stainless-steel exhaust system, which increases fuel-metering precision while also allowing the Pioneer 500 to meet exhaust emissions requirements. Power is transmitted to the wheels through a five-speed gearbox with reverse that uses an electric shift system featuring paddle shifters mounted on the steering wheel. Pull the paddle on the right side for upshifts, or pull the paddle on the left for downshifts. The familiar layout and function of this system is similar to what's found in Honda automobiles and provides the driver with a fun recreation feature and useful gear control for work. Reverse is easily engaged via a dash-mounted lever, and gear position is displayed on the centrally located digital meter for convenient reference. Shift engagement from one gear to the next in the Pioneer 500 is notably smooth, thanks to a shock-absorbing judder spring in the clutch assembly and a momentary fuel cut during shifts that helps smooth the transition from one gear to the next—two innovative bits of Honda bright-think. On downhill slopes, the Electric Shift transmission allows the driver to hold a gear for positive engine braking that supplements the 200mm hydraulic front and rear disc brakes for slowing power, a welcome feature. With its 1,000 pound towing capacity and ability to hold a lower gear, the Pioneer 500 has the ability to tackle big jobs in a variety of terrain. Final drive is handled via shaft, and a handy gearshift selector makes it easy to switch from 2WD to 4WD when the going gets tough. Convenient access for you and your gear To climb into the Pioneer 500, you merely twist the door release knob, and the door and net open together as one unit—an ingenious and simple design. The knob is easily accessible from inside or outside of the vehicle. The door swings open a full 180 degrees for easy entry and exit. Inside, there's a roomy and comfortable bench seat for the driver and passenger. The Roll Over Protection Structure (ROPS) meets OSHA requirements, and there are three-point Emergency Locking Retractor (ELR) seat belts. In back a large, flat rear carrier built of sturdy steel tubing provides a big space measuring about 30 inches by 46 inches wide. With a deck height of only 37.5 inches, the rear carrier is an easy lift for packing your gear on board. The rack is rated for a load capacity of 450 pounds, and multiple hook points for tie-downs are conveniently provided all around. There's plenty of room on the rear carrier for users to add specialized equipment or an enclosed box for parts, tools, or camping gear. The options are nearly endless. There's also more than 40 Honda Genuine and Signature Accessories that allow owners to configure their Pioneer 500 to meet their specific needs right off the showroom floor. Attention to detail counts for plenty, and as would be expected, the Pioneer 500 is up to full Honda spec in this area. Access for pre-ride maintenance items, such as brake fluid, coolant level, and oil level, is simple and requires no tools. Thoughtful touches in the rider compartment include dual headrests, two cup holders and a 12-volt power outlet. The hood, seat back and seat bottom can be easily removed as needed for access to the oil dipstick and air filter. And multi-reflector halogen headlights offer plenty of illumination should your rides stretch past sundown. With new people entering the growing side-by-side market, the Pioneer 500 provides a whole new level of accessibility—both in its versatile capabilities as well as its exceptional value. Compact, easy handling and trail-ready, the Pioneer 500 offers a highly affordable fun alternative for recreational riding, outdoor sports, chores around the homestead, the job site, and so much more. From side-by-side enthusiasts to new riders, the Pioneer 500 is likely to become an instant favorite.
  4. 1990 Honda Fourtrax 300 2wd Smokes after Timing chain replacement. I am mechinicalined however never replaced a chain before. The chain popped off so i figured it would be best to replace it due to age of motor. Replace chain and while reassembling I snapped a valve stem while putting on the head. I replaced the valve, finished assembling and fired it up. Ran the motor for about a minute and Blue smoke to no end. Will this settle out? Could it be the new valve not sitting correctly? Worn faulty valve seaL? Timing off? Something more menninising? Any thoughts would be helpful. Thanks.

    Honda Honda Trx250ex Engine Upgrade

    I currnetly own a Honda trx250ex 2006 I want to know if their any engine upgrades I can do to make it more aggresive going down a trail or for racing but I need to keep it under a 300cc.
  6. When I go back out to my dads this summer I found a 1985 fl350 that my cousin has. He wants 1500 for it which I think is a good deal. He said it has less than 20 hours on a full rebuild with a 380 big bore. He got it from the guy who did the big bore but lost contact since. I can't find any info on a 380 big bore or where it came from. I've drove it last summer and its absaloutly nuts. Tires spinning all the way to 70 and it goes 120 km/h. I plan to put a DG pipe and 38 mm carb and a comet 102c clutch and air box mods as well. Any info on a 380 kit or where to get a replacement piston when the time comes would be great. (Stock it was 329 cc after the recall in 86)

  9. Big news was hiding in Honda’s latest release of new model year information, as the company has unveiled its new Pioneer 700-4 — a versatile side-by-side with seating for up to four and an innovative convertible bed space — all built atop the company’s Big Red platform. Read more....

    Honda please help me. having 400ex issues

    Okay, first of all I have a 400ex that will not idle for longer than 30-60 seconds. I thought it was the carb because it was leaking but I had the entire thing apart twice and cleaned it completely and it made no difference. Second, it doesnt start that hard but I do have to give it some gas and when it stalls it makes a slaming sound in the engine but itll start right back up. Im getting very frustrated and would appreciate any help I can get.

    Honda Honda fourtrax 300

    I have an 88 fourtrax 300 (utility) that has been reamed nine ways from sunday. I pulled the head to replace valve seals and noticed that there is almost no ridge on top of the piston. I know that this does not suggest the cylinder is not worn and ovaled down lower. My question is, are OEM pistons available in slightly oversize or only the rings, or would be be cheaper to just by a new cylinder/piston kit off ebay instead of paying for the machine work to bore the old one?

    Honda 1987 trx250x motor swap

    Has anyone ever put a atc250r motor in a 250x quad. I cracked the case on mine and just wanna do a kick ass build. Any ideas?
  14. I am buying a motorcycle and also probably going to go ahead and get a Honda utility ATV. I am not sure if I will get Power Steering or ES. I would probably not care, but there might be some women who ride it and those options are especially nice for them. If you guys can let me know what you paid for your new 2012/2013 Foreman 4x4, I would appreciate it.

    Honda 400ex rattling toward front

    I have a 2008 Honda 400ex and when I get to around 3rd gear at a good speed, my bike starts to rattle, it sounds like something is very loose on the right hand side close to the front. I think it is the front wheel bearings but have heard others say it was there skid plate. Any one else had or have this problem? feel free to answer!!
  16. I just bought a 2007 400ex and when you spin the front wheels it makes a slight whining and clicking noise the bearings look ok but the brake pads look pretty shot is it ok to ride it as is and how hard is it to change the pads/bearings?

    Honda 400ex vs kxf400

    thinking about picking one up recently,used, and just curious which engines are stronger durability wise. i know the ex is tough as nails and im leaning towards that for trails, but the kfx400 is water cooled but thats just another thing to keep an eye on, so which would be the best? thanks, and valves? will the ex be a better choice for adjustments?

    Honda J. B weld to repair minor problem on Atc 110

    So I recently found a hole in my valve petcock on my 1984 atc 110. I noticed gas was leaking out the bottom of the bolt on the bottom of the valve so I shut the gas off and took it off. I looked and there was a hole a bout the size of a pin needle letting gas spew out. I couldn't think of anything to plug it besides J.B weld. I applied the J.B weld to the bottom of the bolt and let it dry, I just am clarifying before I put it back on because I have ordered a new carburetor, but is J.B weld okay to us with gas? The last thing I want is for my new trike to get destroyed because chunks of putty got stuck through out the motor. So am I risking any motor malfunctions by plugging the hole with the J.B weld?

    Honda honda 200 big big bore

    Is there any interest of a 240cc stroke and bore kit for the honda 185/200's? Had a few guys want some made for the XR's. Will say cannot do these on long shaft crank 185-200's but all X models etc can do these. Not selling them but just checking interests for these. Premium forged piston at approx 12-1 to start

    Honda 92 trx250x locked up?

    Ok im hoping someone can point me in the right direction so i have an idea of what to look for cause im not sure what the hell happened. Anyway long story short.. i was riding my 250x today and my quad just shut off no warning nothing. well when i went to start it back up the kicker wouldnt budge. I could stand on it and nothing. so i left it alone for a couple minutes and started playing with it then tryed again and out of nowhere it broke loose and started. It ran for maybe a second or 2 then shutoff and locked again. I mean i could do that all day but i did notice itll let you kick it about 3 times before it locks up again everytime. Idk what the hell is going on. It was running great until this happened. So any help would be highly appreciated.

    Honda 97 Foreman spark issue

    We have an 97 foreman 4x4. It started running bad, cutting out at half throttle - kinda like a dirty carb. Replaced the gas and cleaned the carb several times, didn't help. We put a spark plug tester on it and when it starts running bad (pops back through the pipe, back fire) we are not getting any spark at this time. Checked the coil, it checked out good. Checked conections, switches, ect. Wondering if the stator is the problem, not able to get a reading from it with our multimeter when we turn it over. Does anyone have an idea? Thanks!

    Honda 450ER Seize?

    A few days ago I was riding the 07 TRX450ER. Ran great, just like any other day. Put it away for a few days, came back today and it wouldn't turn over. By what I mean it wouldn't turn over is that the motor itself wouldn't turn over, like it was seized. When I hit the starter it let out a high-pitched whining noise. Battery was completely charged, so I know it wasn't due to the starter not having enough juice going to it. Pulled the plug to see if no compression would allow it to turn over (did this to see if the starter was bad.) Still nothing. Tried to roll it in gear, wouldn't budge. Any ideas on what it could be? I have no idea if the PO rebuilt at all, or how many hours total he had into it. I was thinking the cam chain may have slipped, and caused a valve to be stuck open just before TDC, thus keeping the piston from moving. Thanks in advance.
