1987 honda trx 300 4x4 should I be worried??

Recommended Posts

i took my 1987 honda trx 300 4x4 out today threw some creeks and mud it did fine for about the first hour then it all of a sudden got real hot and started steaming i no the water would make it steam but it wasnt like a water steam or an oil smoke it was just like a light steam coming up threw the plastic around the handle bars just wanting to know if i should be worried. it still drove fine and had all of the power it was just steaming. i shut it off for about 5 min then it did fine the rest of the time.

thanx

As long as it wasn't oil burning.Is it liquid cooled? I've had water sitting on my quad steam up through the bars also. Mine was do to water from a puddle dripping onto my radiator.

Well then that shoots my theory down. You can usually smell if the steam is water or something else.
Not really my Ozark will put steam on you when it drips on the engine and exhaust . During and after water or mud playing.

I meant as far as it dripping on the radiator.
Still sounds good to me. Like I said before knowledge is everyone sharing there personal info.

If it's not running wierd, You're good. Let it dry completely, take it for a nice long ride. No water! and see if it does it then.

      What is the trick to remove the carburetor  on a 1987 moto4 350?

      Hello I am new to this site and I havea problem. I have a 1987 big bear 4x4 that will not spark. I tested pick up coil per repair manual and I tested my new coil both ok. It puts out 9 volts at the coil but It is reversed polarity. So when I hook my meter up to it she shows -9 volts while cranking. When I put a test light  on it it flashes. Being an electric system this should tell me something but I don't know what its telling me. I have yet to meet one i could not fix but this old girl has me stumped. Any help would be awesome. Thanks to all.

      My daughter is a Navy Lieutenant (Captain in the other services). She served an 8 month carrier tour in the Persain Gulf last year. She was the Intelligence Officer for an F/A-18 Super Hornet squadron.
      She is currently stationed in San Deigo in another unit. She was recently put on notice she might be picked for a year long assignment in Iraq.
      Of course I understand you go where the military tells you to go, but as a Dad I did not want her over there. The Good News is - she is not going. Yeah!
      I am indeed a happy Dad.
