    I found an oil leak from my recently purchased Fourtrax. Its leaking at the drain plug. I thought it may have a worn washer on it so I went to the dealer and purchased a new washer. The washer was too small to fit on the drain plug. I verified that the washer was the correct size and part...

    Honda FourTrax
    The compression in my '91 is a little low and it seems to be lacking power. I was thinking about taking it apart this winter and putting in a piston kit. Would I be better off having the cylinder bored over and buying an oversized piston and rings from Honda or going with a higher compression...

    I changed the oil in my fourtrax with automotive motor oil (before I purchased the manual and learned how the wet clutch and friction modifiers work). I drained the oil and filled it with Honda GN4 and the clutch still slips if under load. Is there a way to "flush" the oil out? I didn't change...

    I just purchased a carb rebuild kit for my 91 Fourtrax TRX 300 FW and the manual outlines the use of a float level gauge. Is it really necessary to purchase this gauge and measure it. I found the gauge on Ebay for $50, but it seems spendy as the rebuild kit was $20 and I could buy a new carb...
