86 lt 250r Need help.

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I have a 86 ltr250 I got for cheap. Runs an rides good but I'm not doing that any because it needs some love. Definatly lower on compression. I've owned a few two strokes but never have rebuilt top end on them. What is needed an or would a Manuel be best to go by being a newb to it? Lol. Also slight oil leak into stator cover so in gonna replace crank seal first. Oil is grey, is that my rings bad causing low compression an fuel to leak into the bottom end? Or is that the double lipped seal for clutch side? Idk if it's water or not, doesn't really smell like fuel either an I'm not losing any coolent. Help guys! It's much appreciated

its verry  simple procedure to tear the head and cylinder jug off. recomend a light bore of the cylinder an new piston and rings.  get the oversized piston  and have cylinder bored to piston. oil sel as for the leak in stator cove..

Grey oil as in milky colored? This is usually coolant and could indicate a blown head gasket, which would also account for the low compression.

Definitely get a manual. It can save you some agonizing problems like finding out the bolt you just stripped was actually a reverse thread (been there, done that).

Oops! Just noticed the date of the original post. Sorry.

      Can I check the compression just by pulling the pull start even if it doesnt start?

      I've been riding Suzuki Kingquad 300's for the last 20 years. I have 3 of them. I love the low gearing, low center of gravity, low rider position, low racks shaft drive and smooth ride, but they are getting old and I'm tired of fixing them. Best engineering of any utility quad, IMO, but the execution...build quality is not up to par with Honda, so the price you pay is lots of wrenching.
      I positively despise CVT type belt drives. My neighbor has a couple of old Hondas, Rancher and Rubicon and I admire the reliability of them. He does very little maintenance and they always run and have pulled my Kingquads home for me when they break.
      Is Honda the only company that makes ATV's that don't have CVT? I like the build quality but I don't like the high rider position caused by the vertical cylinder, the cold nature of them, having to warm up for several minutes and the plastic skid plates. I guess all modern ATV's have the same issues, though (correct me if I'm wrong).
      Been checking with the dealers, it seems Honda foot shift models are scarce. I really don't need devices/gadgets to decide which gear I need to be in. So I'm avoiding the DCT models. I must have IRS and EPS because of my age and physical condition though.
      Is it possible to get a Rancher with IRS, EPS and foot shift? The specs I'm reading show the rancher is 2" lower than the Rubicon. I'm assuming that to be seat height. With vertical cylinder design, the more you grow the engine, the higher you push the seat....at least that's my thinking.
      Any comments from the Honda experienced?

      Anyone ever try these? $500 for a OEM clutch seems high, But $120 seems a little cheap to me. Has anyone tried one with good luck?
