1990 Honda Fourtrax 2WD Hard shift

Recommended Posts

May be some of you guys can help me, I've got a 1990 honda four trax 2 wheel drive, the top end has been completely rebuilt. When I bought it barely ran, so I had everything redone BUT, it shifts good until the motor gets up to running temp and it starts getting hard to shift and the longer you run it the worse it gets, it will get so bad that it is almost impossible to get it into reverse. Does anyone know what wrong?

      Hi I was riding my Honda the other day and I gave it gas for about a quarter-mile just flooring it and then it started to lose power. I pushed it about a mile home which was a pain in the butt but when I got home It still had gas, compression and spark. Do you think the timing jumped possibly?

      Hi Guys
      I have 88 4trax FW , it has a booster circuit
      In the cdi control fed from a leg in the alternator. 
      MY Honda service manual says you will get no spark without this circuit on this model. 
      Can someone explain a little about this please ?    Thanks

      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

      Hi all, new to this forum so thanks in advance for the help.

      I have recently brought a 2013 power steering fuel injected foreman 500.

      It has a crack in the front casing and was running rough. I have since replaced the front engine casing and this has made no difference to the engine performance.

      It starts and idles but bogs down and starts to die once throttle is applied.

      It maybe be but it also sounds very load.

      I have uploaded a video link of it.

      I thought I would make a quick "How-to" on setting wheel alignment since I was flipping my tie rod ends and I was going to have to re-align the wheels anyways.
      Here's some of the tools you will need...

      1.) Start with the ATV on a smooth and level surface, like a cement garage floor or driveway.

      2.)Center up (Eyeball It) the handle bars and lock them into place with 2 ratchet straps, one on each side of handle bars. This of course prevents them from moving when your adjusting the tie-rods.

      3.) Place two Jack Stands approximately 2 feet in front of the atv even with the outside edge of the two front wheels.

      4.) Wrap a length of string all the way around the ATV and Jack Stands, Start and end at the rear hitch. Make sure the string is the same height from the ground on all 4 wheels. I like to attach a few elastic bands to both ends of the string before attaching the string to the hitch. This makes it easier to adjust the strings when moving the Jack Stands.

      4.) Break lose the inner and outer tie-rod nuts. NOTE! Make sure you use 2 wrenches, one on the nut and one on the ball joint. Damage can occur by only using one wrench.

      5.) Adjust the string by moving the Jack Stands in or out untill the string just touches both of the side surfaces of the rear tires on each side of the ATV. This will take some time to get it right but it needs to be done!

      Check manufacturers wheel alignment specifications on your specific make and model before you adjust any components.
      For this wheel alignment I'm using the Polaris Specs which seems to be a common setting.
      Polaris - The recommended toe alignment is 1/8″ to 1/4″ toe out. This is a total amount, not per wheel.
      6.) On the front rim, measure the distance from the string to the rim at the front and rear edges of the rim. The rear measurement should be 1/16″ - 1/8″ (.2 to .3 cm) more than the front measurement.


      7.) If an adjustment is necessary, Turn the tie rod itself with a wrench or your hand in small increments. It doesn't take much to move the tire a long way, so go slow. Keep re-checking your measurement's until you have a 1/16″ - 1/8″ differance to the string.

      6.) Once your satisfied that you have the correct "Toe Out" measurements you can tighten up the inner and outter tie-rod nuts on both sides. AGAIN...make sure to use 2 wrenches.
      7.) Now take your ATV for a test drive to test your adjustments. If it still pulls one way or the other, just repeat the above steps to tweek the adjustments again utill your happy.
      The whole process only takes about 15-20 min.
