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.
Heres my story. Kinda long. I guess I was a late bloomer when it comes to quads. I had never ridden a quad in my life. Rode Dirt Bikes as a kid growing up. Back in Oct of '06 I found a Mustang on craigslist. Took it for a test drive one morning before work. Fast car. 351 Cleveland. I had planned on meeting the guy again after work. For some strange reason thats still to this day beyond me, I stopped in Hillsboro MotoSports on the way home from work. I had 6 Grand on me. There was a left over '05 sitting by the front door. It was on sale for $4999. It was $5499 OTD. I didnt even look at anything else. I knew nothing about quads accept I thought it really looked coool and I had the money in my pocket to buy it. I was sitting on it when the salesman walked up and asked... "Can I help you?" Without hestitation I pulled 60 Ben Franklins outta my front pocket and said "I want this Quad. Load it up in my truck." It was just about dark by the time I drove away from the shop. BTW, I didnt bother to ask my ol lady if I could buy it. LOL. Anyway, I took it by the house and showed her. She was kinda stunned but not mad. We drove over to a friend of mines house and unloaded it. I took it to the field across the street from his house. HOLY CHIT!!!!! I was surprised by the power. I had it for about 2 weeks and took it to Sand Lake. I was there a few hours and rolled it on a banked turn at the top of the bowl right before you get to the one-ways. When it rolled, I flew off and landed on my belly. The quad came bouncing and landed on my back. For a month I couldnt even walk. I was scared of it. I considered trading it for a 250EX. Went back to the shop. The salesman said..."Dude!!! You dont want a 250EX!!! Trust me. Just get used to it" I still wasnt convinced. I put it on craigslist for $4000. Calls were coming in. I had a guy that wanted to come look at it that evening. I decided to take it for one last ride at Browns Camp before I sold it. I was still afraid of it. After about 5 minutes I started feeling comfortable on it again. I decided right then, I loved my Honda 450 and would learn how to ride it instead of selling it. That was late Nov of '06. Work was slow for a Painter in Oregon. My new job everyday? Going to Browns Camp and ridding my Quad. I bought my Girl Friend an '02 Blaster. I rode my 450 for 4-6 hours almost every single day for 3 months. And yes, I know my way around Browns Camp pretty well. LOL. In March I bought her an '06 TRX250EX (Thank God I didnt trade my 450 for one of those) LOL Since then, I have become totally addicted to quads. I love them. Couldnt imagine not owning at least one quad. Luckily I have two. My "07 was $6500 OTD in July of '07. Bought it for my Girlfriend. Traded in her 250 EX. A month later we broke up. So, I wound up with two Honda 450's.
