84 honda trx200 starts with starter but not the pull cord

Recommended Posts



Is the pull cord jammed or just not offering enough of a crank? Stupid question, but you have it on and in neutral when you are pulling the cord, right?

Pull cord is free and decompression lever is operating correctly. Installed a new spark plug. When I first got the bike it wasn't running I played around with all the wires to make sure everything was plugged in. The shift pattern is completely backwards from what I am used to. Neutral is all the way up. Thought I had the bike in neutral but it was in 4th gear. Pulled the cord and it started right up. Put a new battery in it and now it doesn't start on the pull cord whether it's in neutral or any gear

Yes it starts with the electric starter. Just found out the rectifier is bad and I'm supposed to go trial riding this weekend. Would be nice to be able to put start it incase the battery dies on the trail. Having trouble finding a rectifier...old used ones on eBay or a new one for $104.

Bring a small jumper pack. I love mine and it’s saved me countless times.  

Finding a rectifier may be challenging. The aftermarket ones are not so good.

I found one on eBay but you should make a move quickly based on the price. It’s oem as well

The jumper pack is a really good idea and the one on Amazon looks small enough to fit in the little trunk on the trx200. The rectifier is a good price but I'm not sure I want to buy a used one of a parted out bike. Just found another new one on Amazon for under $70.

Oem $79 ?   My personal opinion not that it matters is I would rather a used oem then an aftermarket. That jumper pack is a great addition to the take alongs.   It has a USB port for phones as well.  There was a topic a while back about what we all keep on our bikes while we are out and about.  You should look that topic up it’s super helpful.

Thank you. I will take a look at that post. I am relatively new to the hobby and am happy to receive any advice. I have only been out trail riding once so far and I am hooked. Think I found my solution for parts my stepson has the same 84 trx200 that smokes a lot. Think I'm going to give him the $100 he said he'd sell it to me for. Maybe I'll even fix that one up for the wife.large.20190727_195646.jpg.c74f34a5324656b12eb48fab945c8cc5.jpg

Wow blast from the past seeing that.  This is a very addictive hobby.  Especially once you hit a really cool trail ride with a ton of ppl.  Enjoy it and most of all be careful.  Ride safe brother.

      Ok so just picked up an 02 ds 650 and the guy said he couldn't get it to start. He had a shop put new shims in it and I had them checked and they were ok now things I've done is new plugs even though guy had just put new plugs in it.. got new carb 42mm just like the one that was on it.. bought new intake manifold because the one that was on it someone got way to tweaked out and ported the shit out of it excuse my language but yeah so installed new intake manifold and it just won't start like its not getting enough fuel.  Timing seems to be right it does fire every now and again but just barely.. did a compression test today and it was at 90psi.. i know thats low but don't know where I'm losing compression.. valves we at .06 and .07 when checked im lost ive tried everything I know and can't figure it out

      What's a good size to start a 10 year old on?

      hey so never ran into this before but i recently got a 04 honda rubicon 500.  bought it from my doctor not running and the front brakes were locked up.   cleaned the carb and it fired right up and runs great.  these model atvs have drum brakes front and rear.  not a fan.  lost all brakes on this one when i hit some water and it got inside the rear drum case.  so i ordered new shoes for the rear end no biggie.  front is more complicated.  has hydraulic drum brakes not sure who thought that was a good idea but the pistons in the drums rusted and locked up from it sitting with moisture in the drums.
      so i had a choice to make- 1. buy new brake pistons ($120 for a set of 4) or 2. order super atv's disc brake conversion kit for $250.  i HATE drum brakes so i went with the conversion kit.  it said it was easy to install with no specialty tools.  so i order it and turns out i have to press the studs out of my hubs to get the disc on.
      anyone ever done this and if so how?
