Hello

I bought a 1992 honda 300 fourtrax 2wd for my son. It has 280 hours on it. I cant seem to get the carb right. I put all new rebuild kit in it. I was just going to buy a new carb but cant find an oem carb. I can get 1 for a 96 but dont know the difference. Can anyone help? I'm sure this is the group for this.

Thanks

I just gotta ask !!..lol. how does a '92 trx300 show 280 hours on it ????. all the trx300's that i've seen never had hour/miles on them ??!!. only one model that had hours/miles on it back then were the old school trx350's, and that was an option to have the meter thing installed :-).

You could buy hour meters for them as an add on from honda. I bought from an older man who had cattle and he used in his pasture.

This one is very nice.
Only buy OEM for best results.

Sofar as your carb problem, it is likely you didnít clean well enough, didnít replace a worn starter valve or havenít adjusted it properly. These are pretty easy so donít give up on itówe can help.

check my links below to ensure you have the oem carb. Should be a Keihin VEsomething. My 93 uses VE90E.
what carb kit did you use?
Did you replace the starter (choke) valve ($40-$70). i just bought one for $39.99).
You can also replace the primer plunger because that seal deteriorates and can be a source of debris in the primer passages.

Hereís a pic from the service manual available from my link below and a pic of my VE90E disassembled and ready for cleaning
