It's the shift angle sensor. It screws in at the back of the case above the swing arm pivot. Common item on Hondas. Change that and yer goin again. Unhook battery and rehook to reset computer.

Honda ATVs don't use a drive belt

I've changed plenty of those in my travels... the blink sequence is a closely guarded secret of Honda. It may be in service manuals now, but in the past only Honda dealers knew! Check walk into any Honda dealer and say 'shift angle sensor' and they will know what you mean.

      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?
