2007 Honda recon 250es


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, I just bought a 2007 Honda recon 250es I am the second owner, before I purchased the quad the seller went through and cleaned the carb and made sure it ran. I rode it up and down the road the next day then it stalled in 4th gear now it will not stay running. I took the plastics off and tried turning the idle screw up and down once I got it running but it still backfires and shuts off. I drained the fuel from the gas tank ( the previous owner said it had about a 1/2 gallon of old fuel and he topped it off with fresh fuel) and charged the battery and I tried starting it again with the choke on and it will run for a bout 45 seconds to a minute and 30 seconds the nit dies out. anyone know what the problem could be?

update: so I puled the airbox and carburetor off, took apart and cleaned out the carburetor and jets which were slightly clogged so I cleaned and cleared the perforation holes and the inside of the jets in and out and I put it back together I noticed the fuel line connection that is connected to the top of the carburetor was gunked up with some dirt and grime, I cleared that out of all that out and I drained the gas tank through the gas line to make sure there was no dirt or anything in the tank. re attached everything and fired it up with full choke then I turned it down to half choke and the to no choke and it was running fine all of a sudden it started to back fire a bit then it shut off and had trouble starting again. I figured I flooded it a bit so I let it sit about a half hour and its still having trouble starting so I messed with the idle screw and it still wont run correctly. any idea on what I could do or what it could be?

      Hi everyone,
      Outlander 2006 400 XT i have replace the startor cover and right after i did that the oil light is on and not turn off, i check the wires and checked the oil level, everything seem to be normal quad is starting without any problem and rev just fine. i did not want to ride it since im not sure if it is faulty sensor or not so just be safe i did not let it run more the a minute or so. 
      I have read in the owner manual that i need to clean the oil strainer every 200hr unfortunately i never did that, my service manual that i have does not even indicate of such a thing. so i did some search around and it seem like canam split the manual into 3 parts
      owner manual
      service manual
      engine manual
      I have the first 2 but i can not find the last one, part number 219100232. If someone can guide me where do i find the oil strainer so i can clean it i will appreciate it.   im going to do an oil pressure test tomorrow to check how many PSI i have, just to make sure.

      So here where I live in Newfoundland Canada, they let you drive your bike on the road provided it’s registered and insured same goes for crossing highways but on trails you don’t need to be insured. And I don’t even think you need a full license to insure your bike they said it was up to the insurance company. I’m trying to get my old 1985 Suzuki 250 registered they have to do a search for it to make sure it hasn’t been in anyone else’s name first. Hopefully it comes back clean I am pretty excited

      I am in the process of puting it back together after replacing the DPS gearbox.
      The manual I have states that it will need to be flashed by a dealer. Is this still true?
      Also , I have a mystery bolt That I cannot remember where it goes. M6x 70 or so.  Hex head with a flat washer.I will try to attach a pic.
      Pic is no go for now....Cox issue I will try again later
