3 wheeler craze

Recommended Posts


Thought this would be fun, 1985 Prairie, live clutch 250

was pretty rough, carb was in pieces and in a baggie hanging from cyl head. 

Gas smelled like an old dinosaur. How could i go wrong. 


It actually came with xtra set of wheels with brand new slicks for the donut fun!

Well body off, cleaned good, painted, drained gas tank, rebuilt carb

installed fuel pump, replaced battery, painted the frame and motor. 

installed front wheel, Got it to fire up. Lots of power for a 250, I live on 

2.5 acres, havent got it out of 3rd yet, pretty fast. If not careful will end

up on 2 wheels, no wonder they dont make anymore lol. It is missing front

plastic which covers frame, Any ideas where to find some. Az

Not a 2 Stroke but sure is fun, Would post more pics but looks like 2 pics i posted used up 

all my allowance. Seems can only upload couple of pics now says all files are too large.

Theres a lot of 3 wheelers out there. The nicer ones the people think they are gold and 

sell for more than when they are new. The cheap ones are pretty much destroyed and or missing

ungettable parts so keep an eye out and you will find one. Az

      Picked up a 89 moto 4 250 for cheap a few years back from a friend that was moving.   It ran and drove then, but wouldn't idle without quitting.  Anyway, I pulled it out recently after it has been sitting to see if it would start with a new battery.  It cranks but won't run.  Fuel is getting to the carb from the fuel tank and I have good spark.  If I pull the plug and pour a little gas in and replace the plug, it will run for a few seconds and quit.  I figured it has to be carb related so I pulled the carb and have been inspecting it.  There is some gunk in the bowl.  The big jet looks ok, but I think the small one is completely clogged.  I am guessing this would be enough for it not to start, correct?  Am I on the right track?  I like to dig into this kind of stuff but don't have much experience with small motors.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.   I did order a carb rebuild kit on ebay with new seals and rings for putting it back together too.
      Hi  all, I have just come into possession of a 85 lt230 shaft drive but I cannot find any clutch adjuster on it anywhere....
      Can someone help me out here or do I have to replace the clutch...

      Im replacing head gasket on my 350L because it started leaking water and i think the previous owner did not use correct torque.
      I dont have the service manual so do anyone know what torque to use, anyone know?

      Hi, i have a polaris 4x6 -89 and im not sure if there might be something wrong with the engine.
      It makes a kind of scrabling sound like when a rod bearing is bad, but i can only hear it when revving quite high, usually bearing fault is heard mostly on low revs.
      Could it be bearings? piston? Or just something loose that is vibrating?
