1984 Honda TRX 200 No spark.

Recommended Posts

Hope someone can help with this one.

We took our 1984 Honda TRX 200 to the shop and they had it for about 2 weeks before they finally called and said that they had cleaned the carb and changed the battery and that it had started up.

We went and got it and when we got home it would not start so we called them, they said bring it back in, so we did. They called us the next day and said they changed the spark plug, and that it was running. We went and got it again and it ran when we drove it off the truck.

We parked it for about an hour because we were going to get ready to go on a ride. Well, it wouldnt start again.

So we called them and they said the last thing they could do was order a new CDI box and put that on. I decided to just buy it myself, so I didnt have to pay them labor again. We put the new one on today and its still not starting.

Does anyone have any ideas on what we could check to see what in the world is going on with this thing?:aargh:

Please and Thank you

So I would first start off by checking for spark. If you don’t know how to do this it’s simple.  Take the spark plug out and plug it into the spark plug wire and put the bottom of the spark plug against the engine so it’s touching a good metal part of the head  and crank the engine. There should be a good clean blue/orange spark at the plug.  If not try the old cdi and repeat. Make sure the run switch is on.  If you have spark then great it will be a fuel issue.   Try this and get back to us.

    • 1986 or 87 Honda 250sx atc keep or sell

      Long story short, I purchased an 86 or 87  ( the last year made) 250sx aTC about 5 years ago.  It was in pretty good original condition.  A friend helped me clean the tank, carb etc and it started right up.  I drove it around a few times and that was about that.  It is located in Northern California at a friend’s place and I reside in southern Ca about 500 miles away.  I’m debating going up and retrieving it but I kind of have too many projects to really enjoy it.  My rebuild on my 64 Land Rover is gonna tank space and priority. i was wondering approx value of it as well as if it’s worth transporting down to Southern Ca for a larger market/better price?? If I remember correctly, everything is in pretty good shape, may need new toilets soon.  thoughts ?  I appreciate the input.

    • 2006 Can-Am Outlander Max 400 battery box fell apart

      The battery box on my machine kind of fell apart and I was wondering if this has happened to anyone else and what they did to rebuild the box.

    • New here 1986 Honda TRX70

      Greetings, I'm new here and just picked up a 1986 TRX70.  It is not all original or complete and I'm trying to just get some information that I haven't been able to find on various searches. My first question is the frame.  It is red.  Every other frame I've seen is black.  I suppose someone could have painted it, but I don't see any black under the red paint and the quality of the paint seems far too good to be a garage rattle can job.  Were any of the TRX 70 frames red?  I thought it might have been stolen and painted, but I finally found the vin and don't think that is the case. Also, I have a Keihin (japan) carb on it, but I think its the wrong carb -- at least it doesn't look like the one in the FSM.  This one does not have the sediment bowl on the petcock.  It has PB cast into the carb housing.  It looks more like the carbs from an earlier ATC70, which I suppose it could be.  Its been gotten into and part of the intake is cracked where it bolts to the carb.  The centers on the carb mounting bolts are 48mm, not 42mm.  What size came on the TRX70 originally?  I was looking at the cheapie Chinese carbs, and all the ones for the TRX70 seem to have the petcock and choke on the right side.  The one that is there now has them  on the left. The pull start has been removed down to the stator.  What would be involved with getting something that would work to pull start the engine?   Thanks in advance.

      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?

      Somehow I lost all of my spark on my 350Big Bear, its a 1990. It ran well for maybe 3 days! Thought it was the carb. Cleaned it 4 times. It was losing power at midrange. Got worse and worse. Finally nothing!
      Are these good coils? I was thinking I could swap?
