2002 Honda TRX 250 EX Gas leak

Recommended Posts

I'm new to this forum. Any feedback is welcome.

I have a 2002 Honda TRX 250 EX fuel is leak around the gas on/off, reserve valve. The valve appears to be connected to the bottom of the single piece molded gas tank. Anyone ever had this situation? Any suggestions as to repair?

That's the fuel petcock and I have that issue on my grizzly where it leaks when in the on position. I have to change it and in the meantime I have been leaving it on the off position when not in use. Try and see if it leaks in every position. If not, it's probably the valve. 

* Topic moved to Honda forum and added ATV info into topic title.

My  petcock started leaking on my old '91  Honda  300FW..  Took it apart  and found the bowl/  water trap  was corroded through.  Cleaned the bowl,coated the  inside with JB weld epoxy  and leak cured.  I'll  pick  up  a  new  assembly  when I'm  able,  but in the  meantime  that repaired one  will likely  last  years  more  now the epoxy  coating protects it from  any corrosion  by  moisture  settling in it.  Iwon't  be in a big  hurry  to  get the  new petcock.

Mine has a small nut on the back side of the valve which tightens the valve assembly and reduces leakage

      Hi guys im new to the forum and i hope i put this in the right spot. But im putting this up for my uncle. But he has a 2002 Bombardier quest rotax 650 4x4 All wheel drive. Now i was driving it down the road today and all sudden it shut down i thought it ran out of gas but it didnt. After it shut downi pushed it to the side of the road and tried to crank it over but it wont crank over. It is a electric start none of the lights or anything work So what i was thinking its in the wiring somewhere right? Does any one have a website that has a wiring diagram for this 4 wheeler or does any one know what else it can be? If anyone has any idea please let me know everything willprobley help thanks guys!!!

      posted a while back - it was running at one point - I have all the plastic shroud off - it's down to frame and engine now
      -fuel pump: when line from petcock is attached, no fuel comes out other side to carb; the line to the carb is open (can blow through it); I thought when I cranked engine that the pump would spit out fuel on other side but it does not; I removed fuel pump and opened it up - diaphragm looks good - but internal areas had lotsa calcification build up - I cleaned this out and dried it good - the clear plastic pieces (?diaphragms) aren't broken - the spring w/ steel ball on end moves freely; am putting it back on tomorrow; but can anyone answer about the pump? isn't it supposed to pump fuel through it... to other side... to carb? puzzling
      -along with fuel pump: I replaced petcock 3 weeks ago (gas tank had rusty fuel in bottom - cleaned it out prior to new petcock); when I turn petcock arrow NOT to on or reserve, fuel comes out of line; when I turn it to on or reserve, fuel doesn't come out; puzzling
      -I don't know what's on back of fuel pump - it's a valve that has a hose coming out of it - looks like it goes to engine/carb - I haven't traced this out yet - what is it?
      -can squirt gas on air filter and engine will run for 2-3 seconds then stop - fuel in top of carb (under diaphragm) does same
      -it likely needs carb rebuild - will get to this - but something isn't allowing fuel to get from fuel pump to carb
      -I THINK it has a mikuni model x carb - diaphragm is ID 26mm  OD 68mm - hard to find inexpensive diaphragm, I guess because it's a model x
      -last thing - I replaced solenoid due to old one clicking; I HAVE to be charging the battery or it won't start/turn over - battery just goes dead; but if charging, it'll turn over nicely; i'm guessing it's a bad battery
      -any help appreciated - I've never owned an ATV before - inherited this beast from grandparent in-law

      So I’m 14 years old right now..... I’m a pretty good rider for my age, I have a 98’ 300ex that I’m tryna sell. I’m thinking of a 400ex or should I skip the 400 and just go to a 450r or something along those lines?
