1998 Honda trx300 shifting problem

Recommended Posts

I have a 1998 2wd trx300. After it warms up--riding for 3-4 minutes--it wont shift correctly.

I can be in 2nd or 3rd gear and it starts loosing speed but the engine rpms are still up. It feels like something may be slipping!?? I would appreciate any help or ideas. :aargh:

Yup, it sounds like you need a new clutch. What part of Washington are you from?

time to adjust the clutch, no big problem unless you neglect it. If those plates smoke out you'll be changing the clutch. hopefully it justs needs to be adjusted. owners manual [on bottom of seat usually] will tell you the specifics of that model.

:wink:

      How do I replace the pinion clutch shaft in a 1987 Suzuki LT230 quadrunner? It starts up on the first kick but when I put it in gear it wants to kick up. I can give it gas and put it in gear but my clutch lever isn’t doing anything. SOS

      So I finally finished a bike I’ve been working on for my daughter. 
      Ive been practicing the vinyl thing for a while and making the camo vinyl prints as well as applying them.  
      This was a bike I dug out of a garage, original owner.  
      Compleyey broke it down and did my thing to it. So I put a girls touch on it and my 12 yo will be sporting this.  
      Dont be afraid to say what you think.

      This bike has a straight axle that is moving horizontally in the housing in both directions about 2 inches. Has anyone had the same issue if so what did it take to repair it?
      Thanks..

      After riding for 20 minutes or so  check engine hot flashes, I then stop and idle, fan will kick on run briefly warning goes out.
      oil, coolant, are both full. The fan appears to be working but does not always come on when I stop and just let it idle while the warning
      is flashing. Can turn engine off with warning flashing, fan does not run, can immediately restart warning resets does not flash fan does not run,
      runs fine, a short time later warning will come back on. Trying to decide if this is a flow problem maybe thermostat or sensor problem. Have repair
      manual on order has not arrived yet.

      I have noticed, after repeated cases with our fleet of Polaris Aces, that the front control arms are weak pathetic pieces of junk.  They will bend quite easily when subjected to abuse off road.  Take a 6 inch ruler and hold it up against each leg of the lower control arms and check to ensure that they aren't bent.  This may save you a trip to the hospital as I've seen them snap in half!  A bent arm not only affects your toe (wheel direction) but also the camber.

      Problem: The ATV starts and runs at idle perfectly. But as soon as I open the throttle, the engine starts to slow down until it stops. On the attached video you can hear the sound of how it works: see video below
      Prehistory: there is a Polaris Sportsman 500 1998, which for about 1.5 years stood in repair, including also replacing CDI with one taken from the same ATV. Finally, the vehicles were on wheels, traveled several kilometers and overheated - forgot to fill the antifreeze Came back home in small moves. The next trip started well, but after 10 km there was a feeling of a small drop in power (even as the vehicle got warm completely) but still drives. Next trip - the situation is repeated. The next test of ATV through time and a huge loss of power from the very beginning. The engine sneezes, does not want to go more than 5 mph.

      What has been done: the carburetor has been replaced with a new one (inexpensive, $ 40), a new spark plug, a new ignition coil, the engine head has been removed, the piston is in good condition, valves were corrected - but the problem was definitely not in them.

      Ignition control unit is suspected. Who faced similar? Please help in solving the problem.
      Thanks in advance.

      I
      I bought a Honda 250sx 1986 but the exhaust is broken. Apparently it's not possible to order a new one. I checked to order one on others compagny but there's noting.
      Do you know which exhaust it's possible to install. Is there a company who sold an exaust to fit on my 250sx.
      Sorry for my english
      Thank you

      Hello, i recently bought a 2000 Suzuki LTF500 semi-automatic. I was riding it and found out that its hard to shift into 3rd gear and above. could it be because of the tuning because the rpm might be to high, cuz in neutral it would sometimes rev high by itself? or could it be something in the trany?
      Also it shifts easily when off

      Im working on a old 1987 honda 125 4 wheeler in the school shop. It will start by getting pulled by another 4 wheeler but wont start with the pull start or Electric Start. When you pull start it it tries to start but when you try the electric start it just turns over but doesnt even act like it wants to start. The spark plug is dry and it shoots fuel out of the back(air filter side) of the carb. Weve had the carb off twice and it is complety clean. What are some things we can try?
