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:

Yup, it sounds like you need a new clutch. What part of Washington are you from?

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.

:wink:
