1985 Honda 250 Fourtrax

Recommended Posts

Bought new in 1985 a Honda 250 Fourtrax.  Have used on the farm all these years.  I have performed a tune up but she is still running rough.  Took off the carb and cleaned it out really good.  Seemed to help but still won't idle just right.  Looking to by a new carburetor but have found out that the original OEM carb has been discontinued.  I looked on line and there are many after market carbs available, some state they are plug and play and some are not.  Can anyone recommend a carb that will be a factory fit?  I was going to try and re-build the old one but the screws are seized up and almost broke trying to get them backed out.  Thanks.

I would buy a new carburetor if I were you.  Plug & play sounds good.  I rebuilt my 85 Honda 250SX trike carb. a few years back with no problems.  You could try to soak it like crazy to loosen things up.  Keep us posted.

      Have you ever bought from Rocky Mountain ATV? If so, what did you buy and how was the service, shipping, price, etc. Just looking for some feedback. They seem to still be one of the leaders out there in atv parts and accessories, although I don't usually recommend them because I don't use them personally.

      has anyone tried these cheap carbs from china? the original carburetor has been rebuilt by a shop right before i bought this quad and i think the float is shot the work done was way sub par... the price of the seal kit was as much as the whole carb... i have used the china 150cc engines with no problems... and have used the harbor freight 212cc engines on mini bikes.. so im hoping to hear so one has used them on this model with ease.... if no one replies i will update in a day or 2 i got the carb it looks very well made. has the carb sencer and warmer all ready installed..

      I have an unknown year Timberwolf. I have had to replace/repair some back yard wiring issues. With the wiring fixed, I compared to my other Timberwolf quads, I have found a problem. Starter is always running. I can only get it to stop by removing the positive lead from the battery.
