1998 Honda trx300 shifting problem

7 posts in this topic

I have a 1998 2wd trx300. After it warms up--riding for 3-4 minutes--it wont shift correctly.

I can be in 2nd or 3rd gear and it starts loosing speed but the engine rpms are still up. It feels like something may be slipping!?? I would appreciate any help or ideas. :aargh:

time to adjust the clutch, no big problem unless you neglect it. If those plates smoke out you'll be changing the clutch. hopefully it justs needs to be adjusted. owners manual [on bottom of seat usually] will tell you the specifics of that model.

it is one of the clutches it sounds to me like it is the centrifugal clutch but try to adjust the other first you can not adjust the centrifugal just replace it its not cheap unless you get a good used one

      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

      Hello, i recently bought a 2000 Suzuki LTF500 semi-automatic. I was riding it and found out that its hard to shift into 3rd gear and above. could it be because of the tuning because the rpm might be to high, cuz in neutral it would sometimes rev high by itself? or could it be something in the trany?
      Also it shifts easily when off

      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?

      I have a 94 sportsman 400. It sat for several years before i got it. I have cleaned the carb it will start and run for about 5 min then it will flood. I have torn it down and cant see anything wrong. has anyone else ran into this problem any hel would be great.
