I've worked on Honda's off and on since the late 60's and owned a repair shop for several years. I recently bought a 1986 TRX350d. After minor fixes I got it running, had to replace ignition switch, clean carb, service....my problem is after cranking, it will not shut off... I've since stripped it of the fenders and cleaned and dielectriced ALL connections and plugs.... still it will not die.!!!... can someone help me please. I thought I knew a lot about Honda's in general but this has me stumped....
Tks

ya say you replaced the ignition switch ?, any chance you bought the wrong switch ?, or did not connect all the wires ?. I ask this, because the ignition switch when connected correctly..kills power to the spark plug coil :).

Shadetree, Tks for replying to my problem. Yes I put a new switch on it. I think it was a 6 wire.. I have checked ALL connections and even put dielectric grease on all them too. I stripped the plastic to make sure I got them all. I don't kn unless I got a bad switch..... crazy......

A question that always seem to come up when a electrical problem comes about after changing parts --------- Where did you get the ignition switch from E-Bay?

There is no such thing as a 1986 TRX350D!!!! 1987 was the first year for the Honda Foreman TRX350D. An 86 model is a TRX350 Fourtrax. Ignition & electrical parts DO NOT interchange between the Fourtrax and Foreman models. You'll have to replace the ignition switch and kill switch with OEM parts for an '86 TRX350 to fix your bike.
