87 Quadsport wont shift past 1st

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

Just picked up a 87 230s, got it running pretty good. Kinda new to quads so help would much appreciated. It shifts down from neutral to first just fine, but coming back up to second the shifter doesnt seem to want to move at all. Any ideas?

      Heres my story. Kinda long. I guess I was a late bloomer when it comes to quads. I had never ridden a quad in my life. Rode Dirt Bikes as a kid growing up. Back in Oct of '06 I found a Mustang on craigslist. Took it for a test drive one morning before work. Fast car. 351 Cleveland. I had planned on meeting the guy again after work. For some strange reason thats still to this day beyond me, I stopped in Hillsboro MotoSports on the way home from work. I had 6 Grand on me. There was a left over '05 sitting by the front door. It was on sale for $4999. It was $5499 OTD. I didnt even look at anything else. I knew nothing about quads accept I thought it really looked coool and I had the money in my pocket to buy it. I was sitting on it when the salesman walked up and asked... "Can I help you?" Without hestitation I pulled 60 Ben Franklins outta my front pocket and said "I want this Quad. Load it up in my truck." It was just about dark by the time I drove away from the shop. BTW, I didnt bother to ask my ol lady if I could buy it. LOL. Anyway, I took it by the house and showed her. She was kinda stunned but not mad. We drove over to a friend of mines house and unloaded it. I took it to the field across the street from his house. HOLY CHIT!!!!! I was surprised by the power. I had it for about 2 weeks and took it to Sand Lake. I was there a few hours and rolled it on a banked turn at the top of the bowl right before you get to the one-ways. When it rolled, I flew off and landed on my belly. The quad came bouncing and landed on my back. For a month I couldnt even walk. I was scared of it. I considered trading it for a 250EX. Went back to the shop. The salesman said..."Dude!!! You dont want a 250EX!!! Trust me. Just get used to it" I still wasnt convinced. I put it on craigslist for $4000. Calls were coming in. I had a guy that wanted to come look at it that evening. I decided to take it for one last ride at Browns Camp before I sold it. I was still afraid of it. After about 5 minutes I started feeling comfortable on it again. I decided right then, I loved my Honda 450 and would learn how to ride it instead of selling it. That was late Nov of '06. Work was slow for a Painter in Oregon. My new job everyday? Going to Browns Camp and ridding my Quad. I bought my Girl Friend an '02 Blaster. I rode my 450 for 4-6 hours almost every single day for 3 months. And yes, I know my way around Browns Camp pretty well. LOL. In March I bought her an '06 TRX250EX (Thank God I didnt trade my 450 for one of those) LOL Since then, I have become totally addicted to quads. I love them. Couldnt imagine not owning at least one quad. Luckily I have two. My "07 was $6500 OTD in July of '07. Bought it for my Girlfriend. Traded in her 250 EX. A month later we broke up. So, I wound up with two Honda 450's.

      New guy here having problems with a 230s that I just picked up.
      Lets start with the basics:
      Quad has good compression, good spark, carb has been cleaned thoroughly and set to factory specs, the limiter has been set for winter riding as it is 10 degrees here in NY.
      The quad will start with 2-3 kicks if you spray a little starting flued in the carb and open the throttle all the way. It will run for about 5 seconds and then shut off.
      We did try and "bump" start it behind the truck. It will run and ride as long as the throttle is open but will not idle.
      What am I missing here?
      A carb kit is next on the list but I find it odd that it will run and drive after being bump started but not with the kick start.
      Thanks for any help!

      Hey guys great to finally be apart of a quad forum that has people that come on! So i guess ill give you all the whole story. About 3 months ago my boss gave me his old lt230s to ride around and have fun with. We got it running the night i brought it home, it shifted threw all the gears no issue and was running great. The next day it went boom. Piston and connecting rod exploded and the cylinder was like a grenade and blew out the bottom 3 inches. It was a long and slow process but me and my good friend got all the parts we needed and put it all back together. We followed the shop service manual to the best of our ability but we must have missed something. We got it running and it runs great even thought its a little hard to kick start. Now we only have reverse ( separate lever) neutral ( which is down) and 2nd gear ( 1 up from neutral) I dont know what it is and im pretty annoyed with it. we didnt remove any of the gears or shift forks so im stumped. Please help.

      I am working on a project for our community and someone has donated a LT230S for us to fix up for the kids.
      However, what they didn't tell us was that the "crack" in the crankcase was a 1.5" gaping hole, and that it was missing many many more parts.
      So we are looking to find somewhere we can acquire parts really cheap. Since we can not start taking monetary donations yet all of the repairs are coming out of our own pockets.
      Does anyone know other engines\trannies that will fit in this frame? Maybe that would open us up to some more options to get it fixed up.
      Thanks,
