1987 Honda 250 Fourtrax Vacuum Lines

Recommended Posts

Correct me right off the bat here if I'm wrong, I'm not sure if they're vacuum or breather lines. However, does anyone have a diagram of the lines? When I pulled the carb there were 2 lines that were not connected to anything. I did find a nipple on the frame next to the one for the diff breather line but again am unsure if these are breather or vacuum lines. A diagram would be great or if I could get pointed in the right direction.

I did run through all the Honda threads and didn't find anything. I also looked at exploded diargrams on parts websites, they just don't explain where these lines go.:confused:

Thanks in advance!

Am in the process of looking for a service manual that isn't a small fortune. I have the original owner's manual but it only has an electrical diagram, nothing for lines. Just trying to get it back together as soon as possible.

Check ebay for the service manual, the factory ones are a bit spendy, but worth it IMO, but another brand such as Clymer sells decent repair manuals for a decent price. As far as your problem goes, it would help to know exactly what TRX 250 you have, the 250R two stroke, or the TRX 250X or 250A both four strokes. Either way there are usually a couple of lines that come out of the carb and just hang open ended. One of them is going to come right off the bottom of the float bowl, that is to prevent the float bowl from aquiring a negative pressure state due to the vacuum created by the intake charge. There is usually an overflow line to let out excess fuel in the event that the float is improperly adjusted or stuck. The overflow tube should come off he left side of the carb. The two stroke carb will not have any vacuum lines, they are only for ventilation and fuel overflow.

      Trying to replace the carburetor on my 2003 Bear Tracker 250. Two brand new carbs in a row from different suppliers.   Both leak fuel out over flow and intake as soon as I turn the gas on. Any ideas. Am I doing something wrong?

      got 7 atvs off CL recently for a good price.  one of which is a yamaha warrior.  anyone know where the vin is printed on this bike?  Haha good place to start as I do not know year or size yet.  The former owner says needs exhaust ans and clutch work.  he said it ran fine until the clutch cable broke and then I couldn't get the new cable adjusted right and it would grind gears.  things I see:  clutch cable locked up again, no brakes, carb leaking (green with algae around the bowl and has gelled gas stalagtights on it), aftermarket exhaust melted the airbox so I need something different and a new air box.  I would like the use the current exhaust if I can but I have a feeling its a redneck fix as it looks like there is an ace bandage holding it to the exhaust pipe (its an aftermarket slip-on exhaust), so I'm not sure about that- lets get the bike running first.  also, battery (looks brand new, what a shame) is dead, 0 volts.  Otherwise, bike looks to have not been wrecked, and plastics are ok (it sat outside under a 'tarp' for 3+ years since it was run last).  any tips and advise on where to start first would be awesome as this is my first clutched bike (manual).
      the clutch is my main concern- I've never rode a clutched bike so I dont even know what its supposed to feel like.  lol I'm spoiled on my automatic polaris

      I recently acquired a Yamaha bear tracker 250 that does have a wiring harness.  Does anybody have a wiring diagram for the 250s. Also if you have a pin diagram that tells be the colors of the wires going to the cdi and rectifier or just a picture of the plugs would be much appreciated. I can’t find anything on the harness online. I have all of the switches and stuff and I plan on just build a harness myself because I can’t find one to buy.
