Having an electrical issue. Not getting any spark.
I have checked and tested the kill switch--its good.

It was running, killed it, next day nothing. any ideas or common issues with these?

Bad spark plug? Have you got power to the coil?

A lot to go wrong actually; please carefully follow the troubleshooting guide in the service manual.
Will it run if you squirt a little gas in the carb? Then quits?
Probably CDI.

Check the ignition switch as well (should be open continuity, same as the kill switch in the run position) and make sure you are getting a neutral light. Also unplug the stator & pulse generator plug (it is under the seat) and make sure those connectors are clean. Do the same with the CDI connectors (the CDI is located high on the frame on the right-front) and look for any CDI connector pins that are pushed in. Check the ground connection to the frame (under the seat on the right-upper frame tube) coming out of the wiring harness and verify that the main 30a fuse and all fuses in the fuse box are good. If those all check out you'll need to check the stator, pulse generator and the ignition coil using a multimeter as advised in the service manual. Have fun!

Edit: If it has a Champion spark plug in it, replace with a new NGK before doing anything else.

Does anyone have the service manual for it and also the steering shaft has wobble in it at the top. I have looked at oem schematics and all it shows is a bushing, Is there not any bearings in the top?

You'll find a link for Honda service manuals above in @Goober's Sig block.

The TRX350s have a bushing at the top of the steering stem, rather than a bearing, as you found out. Check your steering stem for heavy wear before reusing it... you can buy a good used stem if you need one pretty cheap on the fLeebay or PSN.

Have fun!

hate to burst your bubble bro, but these old girls do not have any problem with the steering stem. where they drop the ball is the metal stud welded to the top of the front axle. they wear down, then the sleeve wears around it, or both ?, this is very common for these atvs.

if its at the top under the bars ?, there is a plastic bushing, maybe discontinued today ?. it fits down inside the steering shaft. what I did was: I found an old bearing race that would fit down inside the sleeve, grinded the center out so the steering shaft would slide down in through it, these races are tempered, they don't wear out like the plastic ones do. edit : guess I should paid close attention to where he was talking about ?..claims it is at the top..not the bottom front..lol.

Speed reading again shadetree? Switched to decaff recently? :-)

The plastic bushing you mentioned goes in the steering pivot arm (aka bellcrank).

The steering stem is supported by a metal bushing in the steering head at the top and a sealed ball bearing supporting the bottom of the stem. I think the OP is referring to a worn out bushing at the top of the stem. If those are neglected long the steering stem gets buggered up as well as the ID of the steering head.

Are you still having an issue with it not starting, or is that resolved now? I was reading through the thread and it changed directions on a dime
