    Hello All, I picked up an 1986 TRX125 a couple months ago and I'm finally getting around to fix it up. When I bought it the guy said it could not be in neutral to start, and that it had bad compression. I have already fixed the low compression, but I'm trying to figure out why i cant get spark...

    Just recently bought a 2008 Honda Rancher 420 4x4 for my stepbrother for $1000. It supposedly has a fresh top end rebuild. It was running great up until the other night, not even 30 minutes into riding it, after we got to the mudpark. My stepbrother hit a hard bump, and it died. I noticed that...

    I get a good spark occasionally. I've replaced the coil, but the old one was working fine a week ago. The pulse generator and alternator tested fine on the resistance checks. Could it be the CDI? Or do I need to open the left side and check the pulse generator?

    So recently I purchased a pretty rough 200SX used. Me and my buddy have been working on it for a couple weeks now, the original carburetor was missing a bunch of parts, so I installed a close replacement. For the time we set up a container with a fuel line installed into it for a gas tank...

    Hi all! well as the title implies, I'm having a pretty rough time. I got a 2000 honda fourtrax 300. I ended up rolling in on a mountainous trail a little while back and had to be searched and rescued out. During the roll, the ignition cylinder got busted out into pieces, brake throttles...

    I have a 1999 Honda TRX450ES that only starts and idles when you let off the start button. If you pull the plug out and crank it it only sparks when you let off the starter. When running if you give it gas it dies. I have replaced the pulse generator, CDI box and checked battery voltage and...
