2002 trx250ex

Hi Everyone,

Fairly new to quads, but not riding. My family has owned and has been riding ATC's since 1985.

I just picked up a 2002 TRX250EX for my daughter and have a few questions.
First thing, changed all the fluids,cleaned the air filter and replaced the spark plug. All the fluids were fairly dirty. I may even let it idle for a bit and change the oil again.

Back to my question. When I put it in 1st gear or reverse the quad really wants to start rolling. You have to hold it in place with the brake. I turned the idle down, because it was a little high and it still will creep. Is this normal??

All of my semi-auto ATC's will idle in gear and not roll forward (or backwards if in Reverse).

I tried adjusting the clutch (looser or increase slip) and it didn't seem to make any difference. It will go into gear fine but it is a bitch to get back out of gear and into neutral. You have to be at a slow roll and then it will kick out of gear.

I have heard dirty engine oil will cause this problem sometimes. Any truth to that, or does it need a new clutch? I was shocked when I couldn't really make a clutch adjustment that made a difference. I figured 2 turns on the crew one way or another would of done something.

Any input is greatly appreciated.
