New project in the shop...another 300FW

Recommended Posts

Picked this beauty up for zero dollars this weekend. It has been passed around several of my son's friends and the last kid was just tired of tinkering with it.  Mostly complete 96 300FW. The pic is my boy robbing the swing arm and rear diff for his 300 for a big memorial weekend ride. Wiring is garbage at the battery, kick start doesnt work, no coil, smoked like cheech and chong when it ran last. I figure a couple hundred and a few hours and this will be ready to ride. Journey will be documented on Instagram at @martincyclellc if ya wanna follow along.

Sneak peak of what this one will look like when it's done. If you were around ATC's when the last 250r rolled off the line, you can see where this is going. Should be pretty cool.

That is definitely NOT a banjo bolt in the middle of that oil line. This little 300 is just full of surprises.

This one has been a bit of a basket case but it ran for the first time tonight. Not bad for a complete turd and a carb that had been sitting dry forever. Idled and revved like a champ. One more seal to fix and it'll be time to heat cycle it.

Thanks.  i'll build every one I can get my hands on.  Problem here in the south is these things are way overpriced and few and far between that folks want to let go of them.

Drove around the neighborhood last night on this one. Runs great, new clutch fibers are perfect. Needle valve started pouring gas so ordered a carb kit last night. This one sat dry too long and rubber is hard. Check out the leaks on this fine chinesium slip on.

Fresh carb kit and we're running pretty decent. Kicked right off on the 1st compression stroke with the kick start. Glad it has a kicker, this dude has some compression and would break a rope start.

@tnhomestead Thanks, those are Brute Force 750 wheels with the back two flipped around... BF was IRS.  I did quite a bit of prep to try and get the gold to stick, we'll see how it works out.  The idea here was to create a tribute to the 85/86 ATC250R, possibly the best looking ATC Honda created, IMHO.  You can see in the pic below the inspiration.

Mostly complete here, enough to see its ATC roots.

Snorkel mount I made for this. One of the difficulties with snorkel mounts is being able to remove it for service. Two bolts and everything comes apart on this one.

Last piece was lights. Hate not to be a purist but man do cheap LEDs make some light.

      Its in pretty rough shape and its gonna be my first atv, I worked on bikes before but nothing to do with quads. Anyways the quad has some problems and im tryna figure out what to focus on first. So the U joints i think are shot. The bike starts first try every time ussually have to give it a lil gas with the throttle and revs right up, idles fine but its running REALLY rich 3 starts and my brand new plug was pitch black

      Bike is L model

      I have a Yamaha Timberwolf 250 2x4 that I purchased a while ago as a project. I fixed it up to where everything was working great in my opinion, however when I showed it to a potential buyer he complained about a vibration from the rear drive shaft. (Which I ridiculous seeing as he tried to wheelie it before that) Anyways I took the rear diff apart and found most of the seals and bearings where bad. So I bought a kit off of amazon only to find that it doesn’t have all of the bearings and seals. After finding that I decided to try to find a used good condition replacement but they’re all to expensive for me so is there a better alternative for me, or can someone point me in the right direction to get the rest of the parts?

      I bought this four-wheeler used for my son's birthday last week. It wasn't running when I got it but after a new battery and some tinkering it has been running for 5 days probably 8-10 hours of run time. 
       
      Today after 1 hour  My son wanted to wash it, I showed him how to be careful not getting water near the engine. We were careful but after we washed it and let it dry the motor starts but the transmission slips and won't really go forward.  Even if I pick the back of the four wheeler up the wheels only go forward a tiny bit. It's as if something is slipping inside.   But it worked fine right before the wash.
       
      Not sure what brand. I was told it was 90 cc's the VIN is attached.  Is it 90 or 110ccs?
      No air filter came with it. Using a some old stockings until I figure out what air filter to order.
      My son is so bummed so I want to get it back up to speed but also teach him how to work on it.
