2003 Honda Recon friction material smell

Recommended Posts

I bought a 2003 Recon from a kid that beat it – all plastics cracked etc, When I replaced the rear brake the inside – axle, rear oil  - were clean and in good shape, so I think Honda won the kid vs quad battle.

It shifts a little clunky (I made the adjustment) and after riding for a while I get a hot friction material smell I wonder if he used the wrong oil and if any damage was done.

Thanks Frank

I believe it was there before, but I'll back off the rear brakes and see what happens. 

How would an auto  oil affect the Honda clutch ?

No i don’t think you would get an odor based on the fact it’s internal but the engines have breathers so you might. I’m just not 100 percent sure. I know the clutch wont act right and you will feel a slip.

I would think it might affect friction, but since it is a wet clutch, probably no odor.I should heve thought of the rear brakes tho

Yep that’s the first thing that popped into my head was the brake pad smell. I used to love the smell of he brakes when I did them on my cars! Crazy but I did.

      I have a honda recon 250 that i just bought. the compression is around 90 needs to be rebuilt. im getting into rebuilding it took apart the top end no problem except for the cylinder walls. as shown in the pictures. the way the piston sits in the cylinder is if you were sitting on the wheeler the skirt on the piston is left to right. so the wrist pin is front to back. which is where the two marks are in the cylinder. so that means the connecting rod is making the piston slap the cylinder on the wrist pin side which seems like a weird way for the cylinder to be moving. not natural. now the connecting rod has slight play left to right but not up and down. ive talked to a few people they say it might be the roller bearings in the connecting rod where it meets the crankshaft. but the play it has is not that much. im just looking for some more input before i start splitting the case.
