Honda Recon 2003 TRX250TM

Hi 

I am old and arthritic, my ATV is my wheelchair for the woods. I was unable to lift the gearshift lever with my left toe so I converted it to a rocker - heel/toe lever - like my old '75 Honda CT 90 K.

The pics show the donor Vise Grip jaw welded to an old shift lever ( bought a nice shiny new one just in case) and the bending necessary to bring it back behind the pivot far enough. I cut off the pipe heel lever to match the front one.

Works well and there is no weight on the pivot - my foot still rests on the peg for stand-up riding and mounting.

That’s a great design. Love the vice grip part. Did you weld that together while that shifter was still attached  to the bike ?  Usuallly bad for the shifter seal and bad for the electrical system.

No, I took it off to weld, needed to to get to the back side. Yeah,a welding path through, seals, bearings and such is not a good idea.

Wished I had a pair of cheap vice grips to use, but all I had were the brand names.

You get what you pay for. A cheap pair would have prob not welded well or held up well. Would have been cool If the part had the vice grip name on it where you can see it.  

Nice work!

      hey so never ran into this before but i recently got a 04 honda rubicon 500.  bought it from my doctor not running and the front brakes were locked up.   cleaned the carb and it fired right up and runs great.  these model atvs have drum brakes front and rear.  not a fan.  lost all brakes on this one when i hit some water and it got inside the rear drum case.  so i ordered new shoes for the rear end no biggie.  front is more complicated.  has hydraulic drum brakes not sure who thought that was a good idea but the pistons in the drums rusted and locked up from it sitting with moisture in the drums.
      so i had a choice to make- 1. buy new brake pistons ($120 for a set of 4) or 2. order super atv's disc brake conversion kit for $250.  i HATE drum brakes so i went with the conversion kit.  it said it was easy to install with no specialty tools.  so i order it and turns out i have to press the studs out of my hubs to get the disc on.
      anyone ever done this and if so how?

      I’ve got a 2000 400ex with a dg slip on muffler, it came with he stock muffler on it but the previous owner had the dg in a box so I put it on. I’ve been riding it for the past month and a half and every time I let off it backfires, and the other day the backfires got way louder, 2x louder! I’m concerned that I may hurt my motor? Why does is backfire??? Thanks
