Please help with wiring on a Honda 200M

Recommended Posts

I am trying to install a motor from a 200S on my 200M. It is supposed to be the same thing without the starter. On my 200M, there is a black/red wire (from alternator), which the 200S has also. On my 200M, there are 2 yellow wires, which I think go to the regulator. On the 200S there is a yellow wire and a green wire (from alternator). The 200S has no regulator and no neutral wire. My question is what do I do with the 2 yellow wires from the 200M bike, and the 1 yellow and 1 green from the 200S motor? I'm assuming all these wires are to get the alternator to work. Sorry I could not figure out how to post the wiring diagram from the 200M, the whole manual is to big. Thanks

I would just swap the stator form the original motor into the new one. You could just keep the chargind system intact, that way you could run the lights without starting the vehicle. You could probably swap the starting system to the other motor by swapping some hardware with it, ie. starter, side cover, flywheel etc.

If there is some reason you can't or don't want to do that, the wires that come from the stator would go to the ignition and the lights. The colors may be different, but the plugs are probably set up the same. If you have a diagram for each motors electrical, you should be able to figure out what goes where. As far as the regulator goes, if you don't have a charging system, you don't need it. I would just remove it from the bike if you aren't going to use the battery and charging system.

Thank you very much for your response. Man, you really got me thinking now. Ideally, I would love to be able to take the electric starter from the old 200M and put it on the 200S, but I don't know if it is possible. I know the flywheels are different, because I can't take the recoil starter from the 200M and put it on the 200S. Is the starter gear assembly deal that the recoil starter bolts to able to be swapped? If so, what would I do with the neutral light wire, because I don't see a neutral sensor on the 200S.

I tried to see if I could put the electric starter on the 200s, but it could not be done. I'll just find a used recoil starter for the 200s, because the motor I bought did'nt come with one. I'll just get it running first, and then I'll see about getting the lights to work. I know the green wire from the 200s stator goes to ground according to the diagram I found on 3wheelerworld. I would like to leave the regulator the way it is, because I plan on hopefully repairing the 200m motor. Any more help with wiring would be appreciated.

I would just swap the stators and use the regulator. The problem is that the regulator is also a rectifier, which changes the A/C current that comes from the stator into D/C current, so the electrical systems are completely different. If you can swap the stator from the electric start motor into the pull start motor, you can just wire it up the way it is supposed to be.

      So I bought a 2001 Quad Runner 250 for my son/wife. Sorry I run a Grizzly 660.
      I’ve rode it many times with no issue.
      My son’s first time out, I could always hear him but feeling he ran it red line in first gear a lot.
      So this is what it was doing during/end of the 2-3 hour ride:
      - halfway though noticed smoke (oil) coming from front of the motor sort of under exhaust manifold. Once back at the truck, it was really noticeable. Definitely oil burning off. I’m thinking from the top end maybe.
      So quick inspection:
      - No leaks or seepage of oil that I could see
      - I pulled the plug and it’s black but not wet
      - No blue/white smoke in exhaust
      - seems to still ride fine
      - Engine still has plenty of oil
      But now that I’m looking at it back at the house - it’s a hard/won’t start when hot. It starts right up cold no problem but once it stalls when hot, have to let it sit for 10-15 before it will start again.
      It wasn’t idling before that trip so I jacked up the idle a bit as well but I think that’s a carb clean/adjustment but...
      Any input is appreciated.
      Thanks for any help.

      I have an Outlaw 110 that will struggle to turn the engine over. Jump starting doesn't help other than the battery will drain LONG before the bike eventually starts, so is required. If you keep messing with it long enough it will eventually magically begin to crank fine and sometimes finally start. Once we finally get the bike to start and warm it up thoroughly, it will turn over and start just fine the rest of the day like nothing ever happened... next day it won't turn over again.  Internet research has found lots of people saying they replaced starters, starter clutch, wiring, etc. but with only about 50/50 success rate for their particular problems... and I never found anybody describing a problem like mine, so I'm looking for advice/experience. Would rather not just start blindly throwing parts at it. Does anybody have any thoughts/ideas?

      hi folks - Today I installed a new starter for my 2001 big bear. 400  The old starter has been dead for several years but I'm just too old now to be yanking that pull cord any more.  
      Here's my issue:   When I pushed the start button the starter turned over ... and kept going - even after the start button was let go.  After 20 seconds or so the starter finally stopped .  I pushed the start again and the same thing happened ... In fact, it kept trying to start the machine even after I turned off the key!  (for about 10 seconds).  (I also noticed that the positive side of the battery got very hot to the touch.)
      Any ideas on what's happening?  thanks

      Hi. When I press the starter switch, the solenoid clicks and the starter doesn't turn. The battery is good (about 12.6 volts).  I tried shorting the two big bolts on the solenoid with a screwdriver.  I got sparks and the starter didn't turn.  I tried running a booster cable directly to the starter post but all I get is a bunch of sparks.  I connected the positive side of the battery to the post or bolt on the starter.  I connected the negative side of the battery to the frame,  Did I connect everything wrong?  I don't know why I get the sparks.
      Thank you

      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?

      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

      Hope someone can help with this one.
      We took our 1984 Honda TRX 200 to the shop and they had it for about 2 weeks before they finally called and said that they had cleaned the carb and changed the battery and that it had started up.
      We went and got it and when we got home it would not start so we called them, they said bring it back in, so we did. They called us the next day and said they changed the spark plug, and that it was running. We went and got it again and it ran when we drove it off the truck.
      We parked it for about an hour because we were going to get ready to go on a ride. Well, it wouldnt start again.
      So we called them and they said the last thing they could do was order a new CDI box and put that on. I decided to just buy it myself, so I didnt have to pay them labor again. We put the new one on today and its still not starting.
      Does anyone have any ideas on what we could check to see what in the world is going on with this thing?
      Please and Thank you

      ok it will start up an run but quits a lot till it gets warm, but has a bad miss an wont idle, I have a brand new Honda carb on it, good gas flow, new plug, but when I let the throttle go below a quarter, it backfires through carb an tail pipe:confused: so it has never had any electrical work or mechanical work done...it just started all the sudden, I'm think it may have ignition coil breaking down, or cdi box going bad...anyone had this trouble before? let me know what you did to fix it. thanks:skeptic:
