1984 Honda TRX 200 play in the front end

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I have 84 trx 200.It's just a beater machine that I picked for cheap. It runs fine, but there is a lot of play in the front end of the machine. Just wondering if it could be a tie rod maybe? hoping it will be an easy fix? But I have my doubts on that one.? Any leads or suggestions would be be awesome! Thanks and happy 4th! - Dave

It could be a tie rod or a ball joint. Have you raised the front end and shaken the tire to see what's moving? You'll see slap in the tie rod and or ball joint. This video applies to cars but the principle is the same

Check that your tie rod ends are good and the your tie rods are not bent. Also check that your wheels are aligned. Mine felt loose also until I realigned it. It was about 12mm toe out. The specs call for 0-7.5mm toe in.

      I am trying to put a 1994 Suzuki 250 quadrunner back into service. I have it up and running like new but need to replace the plastics as they are brittle and crumbling due to age and sun exposure. I would like to purchase new parts either OEM or aftermarket but have had little luck in finding them. I would even consider used or salvaged parts in serviceable condition. Any help in locating these parts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

      Its in pretty rough shape and its gonna be my first atv, I worked on bikes before but nothing to do with quads. Anyways the quad has some problems and im tryna figure out what to focus on first. So the U joints i think are shot. The bike starts first try every time ussually have to give it a lil gas with the throttle and revs right up, idles fine but its running REALLY rich 3 starts and my brand new plug was pitch black

      Bike is L model

      If you're getting that pesky leaky seal on the pinion of your front differential and the pinion has allot of play, polaris won't sell the bushing needed to repair it properly without having to shell out big bucks for the complete ring and pinion kit. 
      I have a kit with an upgraded bushing, Japanese made bearing and USmade seal
      50 shipped in the US and 55 to Canada
