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.

      So I’m 14 years old right now..... I’m a pretty good rider for my age, I have a 98’ 300ex that I’m tryna sell. I’m thinking of a 400ex or should I skip the 400 and just go to a 450r or something along those lines?

      First time using this forum.  Owned a Kawasaki dirt bike once, had no issues.  But I picked up this 4 wheeler at an auction.  They stated it ran, but only needed a battery.  Well I do not believe that was all true.

      Some pictures are attached.  Not sure why, but the whole air filter stuff was removed.  They had some small thing inserted as a make shift air filter.

      I purchased a battery to try this all out.  Waiting to return it and get the proper size, as it was too big for the battery box.  But here is my issue I had while the battery was connected.

      1 - The lights on the steering column did not come on.  Not sure if they work or not.

      2 - The starter solenoid seems to be bad.  I have a new one on order. 

      3 - In the pick, there is another rusted part.  Not sure what that part is or what it is used for.

      4 - What is the 12v rectifier?  square bodied part.

      So when I hooked the battery up.  Pushing the start button did nothing.  Pulling the cord to try and pull start, it turned, but would never fire.  I have put in a new spark plug as well, it looked worn out.  With electric start, I crossed over the posts on the start solenoid, it turned over, but would never fire and start.

      I have read a few other threads and it stated something about needed the neutral light on.  SOmething about a kill switch.

      Any help would be appreciated.

      I've been riding Suzuki Kingquad 300's for the last 20 years. I have 3 of them. I love the low gearing, low center of gravity, low rider position, low racks shaft drive and smooth ride, but they are getting old and I'm tired of fixing them. Best engineering of any utility quad, IMO, but the execution...build quality is not up to par with Honda, so the price you pay is lots of wrenching.
      I positively despise CVT type belt drives. My neighbor has a couple of old Hondas, Rancher and Rubicon and I admire the reliability of them. He does very little maintenance and they always run and have pulled my Kingquads home for me when they break.
      Is Honda the only company that makes ATV's that don't have CVT? I like the build quality but I don't like the high rider position caused by the vertical cylinder, the cold nature of them, having to warm up for several minutes and the plastic skid plates. I guess all modern ATV's have the same issues, though (correct me if I'm wrong).
      Been checking with the dealers, it seems Honda foot shift models are scarce. I really don't need devices/gadgets to decide which gear I need to be in. So I'm avoiding the DCT models. I must have IRS and EPS because of my age and physical condition though.
      Is it possible to get a Rancher with IRS, EPS and foot shift? The specs I'm reading show the rancher is 2" lower than the Rubicon. I'm assuming that to be seat height. With vertical cylinder design, the more you grow the engine, the higher you push the seat....at least that's my thinking.
      Any comments from the Honda experienced?
