  1. Just bought a 96 kodiak 400, please help!

    Repair & Maintenance
    I'd agree you have some issue in the transmission. I have a 1991 Big Bear, and like said above, Big Bear, Kodiak, and Wolverines are all very similar through the 1990's. I've done a lot of work on mine, but nothing in the transmission to help you with. I'm also on a Yamaha forum - Grizzly...
  2. Need help with problem

    Honda FourTrax
    Sounds like the gears didn't shift properly for some reason. Double check the reverse lockout cable to the handlebars and make sure it is adjusted properly. This may cause it to be right on the edge of shifting into reverse and then is pops in.
  3. 1993 Honda Fourtrax 300

    Repair & Maintenance
    Try cleaning the carb like Shade says first. You are most likely looking at a top end rebuild to get it right. Gonna be a few hundred if you get a valve job also. Find a buddy who knows engines, buy the parts and rebuild it. You can sell it now, but you won't get near as much as if it were...
  4. Replacement cdi box?

    Honda FourTrax
    Unlike the others above, I bought a Rick's cdi for my 300 and it has worked perfectly for 3 years now. I have no complaints.
  5. 91-300 fourtrax shifting problem

    Repair & Maintenance
    I agree also. There is a problem that isn't going to fix itself, so you will need to bite the bullet at some point and tear into it.
  6. 1990 TRX300FW a-arm bushings

    Repair & Maintenance
    you sure did run into a tough one. Guess the sleeves rusted themselves in there. Can you find something just under the end diameter that you can drive through and push the sleeve out? maybe a socket or section of solid rod or pipe?
  7. 93 300fw

    Honda FourTrax
    Quick check of the relay - run a wire directly from the battery positive to the connection post on the starter and see if it spins. If it does, your relay is hosed, if it doesn't spin then your starter is bad. I rebuilt one of mine using a kit off ebay and it wasn't difficult, but next time I...
  8. New to forum

    Welcome to the forum! Nice '14 you got, but don't get rid of the old 300. Probably the toughest and most reliable quad ever made. How about some pics of your winch install! :icon_ banana:
  9. 93 300fw

    Honda FourTrax
    Your starter button won't work unless the neutral light is on, so I'd start there and figure out why it doesn't come on. Perhaps the switch is bad, or there is a problem in the cdi/alarm circuit. It does run fine after you kick start it?
  10. TRX200 no spark

    Repair & Maintenance
    Best I can tell, you tested the correct wire and I would assume the low reading means it should be replaced. It makes sense if this coil is bad then the cdi would not get the signal to send a spark. BTW, I have had good luck buying parts off partzilla.com and also ebay for my last stator/coil...
  11. TRX200 no spark

    Repair & Maintenance
    I'm not familiar with your machine, but somewhere on one side of the engine you will see wires going into the case, probably between 2 and 4 total. By the manual, it sounds like you have the right wire identified, so simply use the resistance setting on a meter and check that wire and a ground...
  12. TRX200 no spark

    Repair & Maintenance
    Welcome to the group. electrical problems are the worst. First, you cannot test a cdi accurately unfortunately. try to rule out eveything else and then replace the cdi unit as a last resort. Double check your run/stop switch to make sure it isn't broken or shorted out. There is usually a...

    Looks real good, but I agree with the slideshow comment!
  14. Best carburetor rebuild kit for my 1998 TRX300FW

    Honda FourTrax
    It is one size larger than the jewelry cleaner, but same concept. I think mine is a 2 liter capacity or so. Just big enough to put the carb body in.
  15. about to give up

    New Member Introductions
    Check some basics - good battery? the run switch is in the correct position and not broken? the key switch works and you get the neutral light? That voltage off the stator sounds low to me, but I'm not sure what it should be. I think the problem may be with the stator assembly. Did you...
  16. TRX300FWS No Spark When Starting

    Honda TRX
    Aftermarket is not always bad. I bought a cdi from Rick's off ebay for my 300 and it is still running strong 3 years later. Definitely check reputations and locations though. Don't buy ANYTHING direct from china.
  17. Best carburetor rebuild kit for my 1998 TRX300FW

    Honda FourTrax
    I just put a Moose kit off ebay on mine and it is running great again. Was having idle issues before. Found some crap in the bowl too. I bought one of those Harbor Frieght ultrasonic cleaners Shade mentioned, used the 20% off coupon too. That thing does wonders. Put some simple green in...
  18. 91 300 TRX FW wheels don't turn freely in neutral

    Repair & Maintenance
    Shadetree gave you the process. jack it all up and turn each wheel, listening and feeling for any issues. I tired moving mine this weekend after sitting for 3 weeks and a front brake was stuck. After a few pulls back and forth, it let go again. Those drum brakes on the front are a pain...
  19. Front wheel bearing 300 fourtrax

    Honda FourTrax
    I looked up the parts diagram and it shows a 1 piece bearing, so I would avoid trying to fit two in there. I have used All-Balls bearings before with good luck off Ebay. Which kit you buy depends on whether you want to replace both front bearings or not. If the other one is showing any signs...
