posted a while back - it was running at one point - I have all the plastic shroud off - it's down to frame and engine now
-fuel pump: when line from petcock is attached, no fuel comes out other side to carb; the line to the carb is open (can blow through it); I thought when I cranked engine that the pump would spit out fuel on other side but it does not; I removed fuel pump and opened it up - diaphragm looks good - but internal areas had lotsa calcification build up - I cleaned this out and dried it good - the clear plastic pieces (?diaphragms) aren't broken - the spring w/ steel ball on end moves freely; am putting it back on tomorrow; but can anyone answer about the pump? isn't it supposed to pump fuel through it... to other side... to carb? puzzling
-along with fuel pump: I replaced petcock 3 weeks ago (gas tank had rusty fuel in bottom - cleaned it out prior to new petcock); when I turn petcock arrow NOT to on or reserve, fuel comes out of line; when I turn it to on or reserve, fuel doesn't come out; puzzling
-I don't know what's on back of fuel pump - it's a valve that has a hose coming out of it - looks like it goes to engine/carb - I haven't traced this out yet - what is it?
-can squirt gas on air filter and engine will run for 2-3 seconds then stop - fuel in top of carb (under diaphragm) does same
-it likely needs carb rebuild - will get to this - but something isn't allowing fuel to get from fuel pump to carb
-I THINK it has a mikuni model x carb - diaphragm is ID 26mm OD 68mm - hard to find inexpensive diaphragm, I guess because it's a model x
-last thing - I replaced solenoid due to old one clicking; I HAVE to be charging the battery or it won't start/turn over - battery just goes dead; but if charging, it'll turn over nicely; i'm guessing it's a bad battery
-any help appreciated - I've never owned an ATV before - inherited this beast from grandparent in-law
My Honda Fourtrax won't start. The starter is kicking the engine over, but it won't start. It sat for about a year while I was living away, so I thought it might have been bad gas. I completely drained the fuel, flushed the fuel lines and filled it with fresh gas. However, still nothing. It started and ran fine the last time I used it. Any suggestions on how to diagnose this? It could be fuel or electrical at this point. Is there an easy way to rule one or the other out? Thanks
Figured I'd share the wealth with my over 35GB library of shop manuals. Enjoy, and everyone have a very Merry Christmas!

Hey just after some advice. I purchased the above mention bike back in mid May.
I had the Occasional issue with starting the bike. When trying to start the bike It would make a Clicking noise when the start button was pushed.
So I used the pull start all ok.
I checked the battery and the starter solorid / relay and found the terminial had corrosion on them.
I clean them up and have no issues since.
However last night the issue came back with clicking when pushing the start buttoned he time.
Any ideas? Relay or starter motor?

It was running well one day, and then the next it just wouldn't start (It has been very cold while trying to start it). I checked spark, it was meh, so I replaced it. After that it got blue spark. Still won't start. Cleaned out the carb (It was quite bad), still wouldn't start. Bought a new carb, put it on, still won't start. Gas is getting to the carb and the plug is dry. It's got compression (Not measured, just put hand in front of exhaust), spark, and gas. It'll start for a second it I put gas in the plug hole, but then I'm back to a dry plug. Any ideas on why it won't start?
I have an 07' TRX-90. The throttle was sticking in the wide open position. Changed throttle cable, still kept sticking. Changed the carb completely, throttle still sticking. After troubleshooting many different things I noticed that as long as I had the carb unattached to the intake manifold the throttle works fine. When I mount the carb to the manifold, and do not tighten the bolts, the throttle works fine. As soon as i put any torque whatsoever on the bolts attaching the carb to the manifold the throttle begins sticking wide open. I have attempted to put gasket material between the manifold and carb to allow for less torque. It shows slight improvement, but still sticks enough to prevent me from allowing my child to ride. Has anyone ever experienced this problem before? The only thing I can think to do now is change the intake manifold. Otherwise I have nothing. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
Ive decided that I want to spend some time and as little money as possible to make some upgrades on my youngest sons Quad...I know its money thrown but what the Hell,,,,Is fun...
