news The KingQuad 500 and 750 Power Steering models get plastic utility rack covers.
Suzuki says the snug-fitting covers can aid load securing or be a workstation. View the full article
Well got another one for the elders here. I recently picked up a Honda Trx 250
in pretty rough shape. Brought it home cleaned it up if thats possible. Motor was
seized, Pretty bad shape. I unseized the motor, got it to spin over, Got it to crank on its
own with the start button. Got neutral light, but no spark. Fuses good wiring is old but looks
intact. Went to check cdi box, here is where the problem lies, I dont know the year. The last one
was under the plastic on the crossmember, this one has none. Looks like a sticker was there at one time.
I checked the left side of frame by foot peg and nothing. Cant find any vin number. I need to know the year
to try to locate a cdi. One clue is this one appears to have 2 cdi boxes. One is a little larger than the other but
plugs look identical to eachother. One has green connectors and the other has white connectors. Is this only
on certain year model that has duel cdi boxes? I also need a download for a trx 250 Im thinking its about a 1985 or 86
but just a guess. Before changing i would like to check some voltages but need a manual for this. Any guess on how to
identify and or get a download for this one would be great. Wont let me post pics only .08 MB Down load available. Thanks in advance Az
For those that have been pulling hair out-
It took me a month to figure this out, but I am glad to report that I have figured out how to repair my 2004 450ES Speedometer
If you have a Honda Foreman 02-04 450 ES model ( 4 indicator lights on top of meter)
or a Honda Foreman 99-00 450 ES model ( 3 indicator lights on top of meter)
or aOnda Rancher 00-03 TRX350ES
and your display:
- Is Blank
- does not show the gear indicator spot at all (not the gear or --) but the
backwards "L" that goes around the gear position - its just blank
-your miles and hours have reverted to zeros or all 9"s and possibly now shows KM now instead of Miles
-your speed shown seems to have almost doubled (possibly KMs per hour even thought it shows Miles)
What has happened is your EEPROM chip on motherboard has lost the programming due to dead battery for
a LONG time or an electrical malfunction etc...
I have borrowed a friends speedometer (a trusting friend) removed the chip from his, copied the data and put it on mine and it reads perfect now.
I can repair your speedometer it will have 1851 miles and 317.2 hours on it as that is the only copy I have for the 02-04 Foreman 450ES
I can also do 99-2000 450ES speedometers (3 indicator lights on top of meter) but will have to double-check check on the mileage/hours copy I have and let you know to see if you want that
I can also do TRX500FM and FE meters and the older Rancher 350ES meters as well but it has to have the above symptoms and not water damaged-caught on fire, cracked lcd, etc....
If you have one you want repaired just send to me (just the board with LCD) I can repair it for you for $45.00 or barter if you have a second bad meter for parts
Shipping would be 4 - $5.00 for First Class with tracking and I will pay return shipping
I will confirm and send pictures to you as well to show a working completed repair on your display
If there is heavy water corrosion, rust and rot damage etc.. its probably not repairable but I can try if you want -no fix-no pay
If you PM me or whatever we can work it out I am easy and like you all I am always fiddling/learning with wheelers
I think you will be happy and you will have more hair -mine is filling back in...................
Message me if interested
I am now also doing burned out screen repair if your screen has become unreadable due to UV sunburn damage from the sun
It will appear burned or melted.
The cost is 45.00 with same or next day turnaround
Will do partial barter if you have a second speedometer for parts
PM me if interested
Before and after pictures below
Friday evening went riding, rode for a good hour or so everything was fine. I went to take a short ride to the restroom (less than 100 yds away) and all of the sudden everything flickered and then just died out. Accompanying the problem I noticed the killswitch completely locked up. Once daylight hit took the killswitch apart to find it had shorted out and melted the plastic inside. Has anyone else had anything similar to this and if so what did you do to fix the situation? I have a new killswitch on the way to replace the obvious problem but was wondering could there be a bigger issue at hand. We tested with a voltage meter to make sure everything was still getting power from the battery and as far as we could tell it was.
Any advice/info would be GREATLY appreciated.
picked up my third timberwolf 250 for my daughters. these are great light weight little quads.
have a strange one for you. the quad will NOT start in neutral. it will start in first.
if i lift up on the gear selector just enough to hear the little click (its not loud, sounds like a contact clicking, perhaps the neutral safety switch?) the light will go out, but it won't yet be in first either. that is how i have shown my daughter to start it and she can.
id like to carry out whatever repair is needed. i have the pdf of the shop manual but it doesn't really have a flow through diagram.
any help appreciated! thank you.
i need to add something. it feels like i can switch into another gear BELOW neutral.
so if i switch to neutral, i can keep pushing the gear selector, and it has another click below the neutral. the light stays on, and when i pull up into first it kind of feels like it has two positions it moves through to arrive at first.
