1991 Honda Trx200D Type 2.

Recommended Posts

Hi I have a 1991 Honda trx200d type 2 ATV and need to know how to adjust the valves on there. The valve adjustments are on the side of the head and looked up videos in there is no videos at all on how to adjust them. I'm taking the head back off to adjust the timing because it's making good spark and getting gas but it's not firing, trying to start but I'm thinking it's because of the adjustments are way out of  line. And I didn't take a picture of how they were before I took the head off.

Hey chase, adjusting the timing ? The timing should be set in one spot only so check that your at TDC and your marks on the sprocket are good.   Once that's done then the timing is set and should not be moved.  After its all lined up the valves can be adjusted by loosening up the valve stem adjusters with a 10mm wrench. You basically stick the feeler gauge (size as per manual)  in between the valve and rocker arm and slowly tighten the adjuster until that feeler gauge slides out with a little bit of resistance. Then you tighten the 10mm nut good and try to stick the feeler gauge back in, It should go in with a slight push.  After that you should be set.  

Keep in mind that intake and exhaust valves are different sizes on the feeler gauges.  

All adjustments should be made in the TDC position.

Ok thanks

Also the timing looked a little off because I forgot to put the timing chain guide back in.

Oh ok, just wanted to make sure as there is really no adjustment for the timing.   Either its on or its off.  Did you find the proper size feeler gauge for the valve adjustment?

Yes it does expose the valve springs but not the rockers. The rockers are hooked up separate them selves. I'll take pictures of it later

From the images you posted it looks to me that the valve cover or top end cover is held down with some bolts?  Have you tried to remove them? 
I marked them in red.

Yes that's just the valve cover. Then underneath the valve cover is the rocker arm cover I would say.Screenshot_20200407-151323.thumb.png.7d2eedf3703446b2f6d24570fe8bfe8b.pngScreenshot_20200407-151323.thumb.png.7d2eedf3703446b2f6d24570fe8bfe8b.png

Thew way it looks to me is if you pull that valve cover you will be able to adjust valves.  Only one way to find out so pull the cover and lets see. Snap a few pics after its off.

I will later. I'm going to work right now and won't be back until the morning.I did take them all off though but I forgot to take pictures of it. I need new piston rings because it's low on compression. So I just ordered a whole new top end kit. $70Screenshot_20200407-180555.thumb.png.832fc1be0c456e8b1f1e2dfacbe39a34.png

Good idea and then you can adjust everything properly. Study the manual while your at work if you can.

I'm back from work and I slept for a while I worked night shift. But here's the pics I was going to send. And the rocker arms are connected separately and they just go one top of the head to adjust the valves.

Ok good pics. I see now, the valve adjustment is done by the bolts on the aide of the head and that should be listed in the manual.  Have you located that by any chance ?

That's great info. Now looking at the age of the engine I would set the valves at spec and a hair more due to wear. But run it first and listen for any tapping.
What do you think ?

      Well got another one for the elders here. I recently picked up a Honda Trx 250
      in pretty rough shape. Brought it home cleaned it up if thats possible. Motor was
      seized, Pretty bad shape. I unseized the motor, got it to spin over, Got it to crank on its
      own with the start button. Got neutral light, but no spark. Fuses good wiring is old but looks
      intact. Went to check cdi box, here is where the problem lies, I dont know the year. The last one 
      was under the plastic on the crossmember, this one has none. Looks like a  sticker was there at one time. 
      I checked the left side of frame by foot peg and nothing. Cant find any vin number. I need to know the year
      to try to locate a cdi. One clue is this one appears to have 2 cdi boxes. One is a little larger than the other but
      plugs look identical to eachother. One has green connectors and the other has white connectors. Is this only
      on certain year model that has duel cdi boxes? I also need a download for a trx 250 Im thinking its about a 1985 or 86
      but just a guess. Before changing i would like to check some voltages but need a manual for this. Any guess on how to 
      identify and or get a download for this one would be great. Wont let me post pics only .08 MB Down load available. Thanks in advance Az

      Hi all, new to this forum so thanks in advance for the help.

      I have recently brought a 2013 power steering fuel injected foreman 500.

      It has a crack in the front casing and was running rough. I have since replaced the front engine casing and this has made no difference to the engine performance.

      It starts and idles but bogs down and starts to die once throttle is applied.

      It maybe be but it also sounds very load.

      I have uploaded a video link of it.

      Hi all, I was gifted this Bayou but she's been sitting quite some time. It won't crank using the factory start button but when I jumper the starter solenoid it cranks but there is no spark. The key has power coming in on the white wire and when turned on supplies power to the brown wire coming out.

      I guess I should start with testing the pickup? I heard I may be able to jumper the wires coming from the pickup with an LED bulb and it will flash? I noticed in the manual that it should have around 110 ohms resistance so I'll check that as well. One thing I noticed was that the starter circuit relay has power on one of the black wires with the key on- this doesn't seem normal as I'm assuming the black wires are grounds? I think one of them comes from the start switch, travels through the starter circuit relay and then grounds the starter relay?
      Mine is a 1991 so it has the 7 wire CDI (ignitor) and a 2 yellow wire alternator ( as opposed to the later 3 wire type ) with another 2 wires for the source coils (black & red wires ). The pickup wires are blue and black I do believe. Any help appreciated and yes I will test the pickup ASAP.

      I'm trying to understand how the system works and I don't understand what the yellow / red wire from the kill switch does- I assume it gets grounded when the kill switch is "on" and therefore grounds the CDI so it can't activate the ignition coil? I noticed in the diagram that that yellow / red wire looks like it may be grounded by the ignition key switch when in the "off" position?
      I also don't have 12v power at any of the wires going into the CDI- doesn't the CDI need to be powered? I also read on this forum that someone used a GM HEI module in place of the factory CDI just to test it for spark- does anyone have any info on that?

      I hope I'm not missing something simple!
      Here is a link to the diagram for my bike (which was posted by another user): https://www.quadcrazy.com/atvforum/topic/13742-1988-bayou-220-lost-spark/?tab=comments#comment-101193

      Any help appreciated!
