Hello to all!
I have a 1984 Honda Big Red 200ES that has no spark. I was out riding it and it just quit. I replaced the coil and CDI but that was not the problem. I borrowed a Honda service manual and went through the ignition system section and checked for possible problems. One check was for the alternator exciter coil. On the black with red tracer wire it said there should be 100-400 ohms between the wire and ground. I had zero. If I tested this right that might be the problem. They did not show how to test the pulse generator. I would like to get some feed back before I throw more parts at it.
Thank you for your time.
Hello I just got a 1984 Honda big red 200 three wheeler from a guy and it hasn't been run in about two years. I got it started and rode it around for a minute. I need to put new gas in it wich I'm sure will help. But when riding it, it smokes pretty bad and also only stays running with the choke on. It'll run with the choke off but I gotta feather the gas to keep it going. I'm going to clean out the carb but besides that any pointers for a first time three wheeler owner would be help ful. I've rode them my whole life just finally own one now.
Thanks in advance for any information
does anyone have a suggestion as to which spray paint is the closest to 1980s honda red.
I now have a 250sx and the previous owner painted it all black. before that he says it was pink and scratches. thats why he painted it but he did a terrible job.
so I would like to get things back red but without braking the bank. I would like it to look like a honda but doesnt have top be perfect.
unless there is an inexpensive paint that is just perfect
