Honda 300ex dies while riding...

Recommended Posts

Today I went riding and towards the end of the day my quad kept dieing while I was riding it. Just riding like normal and it would start to back fire and then die. Do I need to clean my carb or what?

I am not familiar with Hondas but my banshee had a similar problem and turned out to be the tors, so you may want to check the electrical components.

The Tors is only a Throttle Over ride System that is supposed to protect your motor from over Revs....I dont think the 300EX has one....Banshee, Blaster do I know....

Anyway,,,,When was the last time you adjusted your Valves and Timed it????

You need proper timing, proper valve adjustment , compression, spark , and fuel:cool:

Never. I've only had it since Feb. The guy we bought it from only rode it about twice. Im not sure how often all that needs to be done.

Well......

I cleaned the carb and dumped out the gas tank cuz there was serious dirt in there. I know now to never let my sister in law ride it when im not there. That worked

Oh and I dont have a manual DeadAIM

actually it does have something similar but its built into the electric ignition module, main reason i know is because now that i have the mods done to the bike (or golf cart as you may say lol) i hit the limiter often (well ok might be due to being in second or third climbing big dunes lol)

      Went on a great ride on Sunday from the M-33 trail head to the Lupton trailhead in the Huron National Forest.

      More videos from the ride to be uploaded to the channel soon.

      What is the opinion on carb kits? What's one of the better brands of aftermarket? OEM is always preferred but not practical, chinese cheapie is never a good option. 
      Thoughts ?

      So this '02 Taurus with only 87k miles on her starts right up every time multiple times a day except for twice in the last 3 weeks. The first time was 3 weeks ago and the second was today. It happened the same both times. Turn the key and stop to let the pump prime, then when I turn to the start position the engine turns real slow and sort of in fits. Usually when a battery is low the engine turns slow but in rhythm. During my 2 starts the engine barely seemed to turn and the crankshaft rpm seemed to vary. On both starting events I let off the key and tried to start 2-3 times with rests in between. But then eventually on the 4th try it starts right up just as quickly as a normal start.

      I have No clue as to what might be causing this. Only thing I know to do is, next time it does this to put a voltage meter on the battery to see if it's weak. Actually though, because both events the engine ended up starting up like normal that would indicate something other than the batt. Electrically this car is a little odd though. The interior light never comes on when the doors are opened, for years, and then last week it comes on twice when one of the rear doors is opened.

      Looking to purchase a windshield for my ATV, suggestions of what to buy with quality in mind and will fit without doing any modifications.

      Pushing the start button the engine turns and will forever without starting. But if I use the kick start it will start with one or two kicks everytime, any idea as to what is going on. New good battery and coil, I'm ready to try anything. It's a great bike, but this is getting anoying. Thank you.

      I have a 2005 honda trx 300ex sportrax. I pulled the welded together crap of an exhaust that's on my quad I just picked up and the valve is ghost white. Do you guys no what exactly this means? Or do I just need to pull the head and rebuild it? I'm also looking for plastics and a cheaper stock exhaust if anyone has one. Thanks for your time.

      I have a 2005 Honda 300EX that won't start. I've changed the starter and I've changed the solenoid. When I try to push start it the back wheels skid, it's a manual. I've charged the battery and I've done the screwdriver trick with the solenoid that won't start it. It tries to crank but it won't turn over.  
      I was out riding for about an hour or two and then it quit on me. Before I went riding I change the air filter and I change the oil. 
      Heeeeelp. Suggestions? I'm learning all of this info myself from forums. Thanks.
