1994 honda trx300

Recommended Posts

My 1004 honda trx300 starts up and sometimes idles good, sometimes not so good. If bike is running and I grab the bike and shake it the bike will stall or try to stall. What should I be looking at to fix issue?

I'd check the  float level  in the  carb  for a  start .. I'm  not sure  how  that  carb is jetted,  but  there  is also  a possibility  there  is  a  little  water  in the  float bowl....just enough that  when  you  agitate it  it gets  a sip  of  it  and stumbles..  Beyond those guesses I would  say   it   will  be  a search...loose  wire somewhere in the  ignition circuit?

Has it been sitting for long periods of time ?? Possible gummed up carb ?

No. The bike is used a bit. Belongs to sister and her 18 yr old beats the crap out of it. Have ordered a carb rebuild kit so will pull it apart and soak in varesol tank before rebuild. Thanks for all the info everyone. Great site.

      What is the best and easiest way to tune your carburetor? Any tips or tricks?

      My 2013 Honda 420 occasionally won't go into reverse. I don't think it is in the transmission as it does not make a click or noise. I think it is in the lockout. Someone told me when I ride near the ocean the salt can get on something. Any ideas?

      The title is for attention. I’m prepping my cylinder head off of an unknown year 400ex to install on my quad. And I’m examining it and there’s literally a Jewish start( Star of David) protruding from the metal on the camshaft side of the head. It’s not imprinted or etched/ engraved. It’s coming out of the metal. DOES ANYONE HAVE INFORMATION ON WHY ITS THERE??? I’ve attached a picture

      So I have a 1994 Honda trx300 and I still am having some carb issues. I cleaned the carb and installed a new carb kit. Starts great, idles great, but when in 3rd it seems to pulsate. Not steady power. Any ideas on the setting the setting for the carb? I put a new spark plug in and the old one did seem pretty dark and sooty. I checked the gap on new one and installed. Went for a ride and it didn't seem any different. Any suggestions would be great..

      In this video, Jonathan checks and adjusts the valves clearances on a Honda Foreman 450. On this unit, the exhaust valve had excessive clearance.   Resurgence Small Engine Inc.
