Honda 300 Fourtrax regulator/rectifier testing

3 posts in this topic

Is there a simple test (with multi meter) to determine if regulator/rectifier on Honda 300 Fourtrax is bad? I was told that battery voltage will show slight increase when RPM raised to 3000. My bike will not increase It starts/runs great but headlights get very dim when RPM is raised. Any details would be appreciated!

I am sure there is a test for that, either get a manual, talk to someone who has one, or ask a dealer about the test specs and procedure.

Do you have a tachometer. If so, rev the engine and measure the voltage. The voltage should be greater than the battery voltage, but less than 15.5 volts. If it remains the same, it's not charging on load.

      I bought a Honda 250sx 1986 but the exhaust is broken. Apparently it's not possible to order a new one. I checked to order one on others compagny but there's noting.
      Do you know which exhaust it's possible to install. Is there a company who sold an exaust to fit on my 250sx.
      Sorry for my english
      Thank you

      Im working on a old 1987 honda 125 4 wheeler in the school shop. It will start by getting pulled by another 4 wheeler but wont start with the pull start or Electric Start. When you pull start it it tries to start but when you try the electric start it just turns over but doesnt even act like it wants to start. The spark plug is dry and it shoots fuel out of the back(air filter side) of the carb. Weve had the carb off twice and it is complety clean. What are some things we can try?

      Hey all I have a question on my 94 fourtrax 4x4. The electric start won't work. When I hit the button I hear the solenoid clicking but nothing happening. I put on a new solenoid and same thing happened. So I took off starter and checked it, brushes looked good nothing looked out of the ordinary. My battery is putting out 11.2 volts. I wouldn't think that would be it since I put a newer battery in from my other quad and still got same results. Any ideas I'm scratching my head on this one.
