1986 Honda TRX200SX

Does anyone out there know where I can get a functional pair of wheel cylinders for subject ATV? Any suggestions welcomed. Thanks

Thanks, however, I think I need a reputable salvage yard for atvs. It doesn't look like the wheel cylinders are any longer made.

The other option might be to use some from a newer trx, have been in your position a lot as all the machines I own are older and one is old and built in eastern Europe. It is becoming a joint effort between Hungary and Spanaway, Washington. It is good to see you're keeping the old iron running! I do it because of redneck engineering and an Amish budget

are your calipers missing? You can get rebuild kits from moose racing or quad boss.

It has drum brakes, front only. Need functional wheel cylinders, mine have frozen bleeders and I can't seem to break them loose.

I've tried to locate wheel cylinders the same size, but can't find any that small. I'll keep looking. Thanks for your input

understood. What has worked for me has been soak in penetraing oil, preferrably kroil, then put the cylinder on a hardwood block and rap straight down on it with a small hammer a couple of times. It sometimes takes a couple of times but usually works. the other two options that come to mind would be to drill the screws out in small increments until youre close to the outside diameter, keeping in mind that the bleeders seal on a taper at the bottom, then using an eazy out . Good luck

I did a premature button push, its a senior thing. The other thing might work is drill a hole down through the screw slightly larger than he hole, thn use a left hand drill bit 1/32" bigger VERY SLOWLY. drill through again. If everything works like it is supposed to the first pass will heat everything up enough that when the left hand bit starts though and grabs, which it will, the screw will back out. What happens if you hurry the process or dont have a reversible drill that can run really slow you will break the bit in the screw, causing you to speculate about the relationship I had with my mother or mothers in ganeral and you will have a much bigger dilema

      Hi everyone! I have a 1986 yamaha moto4 200 that's been sitting for a while! Cleaned the carb, replaced engine oil, put fresh gas in it. Got it running and went for a ride! It was running great just a little backfire once in a while! I barely made it home on the way back and now the bike won't run at all since then! It will start if I give a little bit of throttle but dies instantly as soon as I let go off the throttle! And even if I try to rev it up it'll sound like its not getting enough gas.. it revs up a couple hundred rpm's and backfires through the carb.. it almost sounds as if I was trying to take off from zero in 5th gear! Nothing is seized though! I dissasembled the head and the piston and cylinder are fine! Rebuilt the carb, replaced the ignition source coil.. I don't know what to do anymore.. compression test shows 90 psi Specs are 128 psi but i'm not sure if I trust my compression tester.. any ideas? Thanks!!

      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?

      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?
      Please and Thank you
