1984 Honda Big Red

Recommended Posts

1st post and would like to say hi to everyone, Last week I bought an 84 Honda big red. Throttle cable is frozen, rear brake is locked. Can't do anything with it like it is, any suggestions. I have two other honda's and have never had to do anything to them. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.

Thanks for the welcomes, back to big red, I have removed the brake drum retaining nuts, and the book isn't telling me how to remove the taper washer and O ring. Any help? Thanks

Find a way to buy PB Blaster by the case! I currently have several cables hanging up in the garage...if you keep squirting them eventually the blaster will free them up. It'll save the hunt for new cables.

The brakes are just corroded....it's common. the shoes and springs are available on ebay if needed.

One atc110 I got had no rear brake function....I opened it up- NO BRAKE shoes or springs! Some pinhead went to all the trouble to disassemble, remove shoes and springs, then reassemble, including the cable! it was 'teenagered' hahaha ya just never know...

Seems to me the hardest things to find for 3 wheelers are the headlight switch and the kill button. they seem to break the first time someone flips them..:skeptic:

I still haven't got the plate off the rear end, I don't know how much heat and hammering it will take. Any suggestions.

Try MAPP gas (yellow bottle usually) to add more heat, maybe.

      Quad starts fine and revs fine in my back yard. On a test ride it falters badly. No power. I have cleaned and rebuilt the carb, cleaned the fuel tank, installed new fuel filter, changed fuel line and cleaned the air filter. Any help would be appreciated.

      So I’m 14 years old right now..... I’m a pretty good rider for my age, I have a 98’ 300ex that I’m tryna sell. I’m thinking of a 400ex or should I skip the 400 and just go to a 450r or something along those lines?

      Hi,
      Oddly I'm having  a hard time ordering front brake shoes for my '98. 
      I'd appreciate recommendations on decent, widely available shoes if possible. Ideally available in Canada on short notice.
       
      Thanks much,

      I've been riding Suzuki Kingquad 300's for the last 20 years. I have 3 of them. I love the low gearing, low center of gravity, low rider position, low racks shaft drive and smooth ride, but they are getting old and I'm tired of fixing them. Best engineering of any utility quad, IMO, but the execution...build quality is not up to par with Honda, so the price you pay is lots of wrenching.
      I positively despise CVT type belt drives. My neighbor has a couple of old Hondas, Rancher and Rubicon and I admire the reliability of them. He does very little maintenance and they always run and have pulled my Kingquads home for me when they break.
      Is Honda the only company that makes ATV's that don't have CVT? I like the build quality but I don't like the high rider position caused by the vertical cylinder, the cold nature of them, having to warm up for several minutes and the plastic skid plates. I guess all modern ATV's have the same issues, though (correct me if I'm wrong).
      Been checking with the dealers, it seems Honda foot shift models are scarce. I really don't need devices/gadgets to decide which gear I need to be in. So I'm avoiding the DCT models. I must have IRS and EPS because of my age and physical condition though.
      Is it possible to get a Rancher with IRS, EPS and foot shift? The specs I'm reading show the rancher is 2" lower than the Rubicon. I'm assuming that to be seat height. With vertical cylinder design, the more you grow the engine, the higher you push the seat....at least that's my thinking.
      Any comments from the Honda experienced?

      Looking for anybody who can point me towards a free service manual for 1998 Big Bear 350. I found the sticky thread but all the links, from 2012, no longer work. If anybody has one please let me know. Thanks

      My ATV started making a rubbing and clunking noise. I took the skid plates off and found that the front u-joint on the shaft that connects the front axle to the transfer case is toast. My manual does not reference this repair. Looking for instructions.

      Somehow I lost all of my spark on my 350Big Bear, its a 1990. It ran well for maybe 3 days! Thought it was the carb. Cleaned it 4 times. It was losing power at midrange. Got worse and worse. Finally nothing!
      Are these good coils? I was thinking I could swap?

      Ok new to group and new to quads. I picked up a 88 Big Bear for next to nothing but it has issues. The entire high low revers shifter has been removed. All I have is a bar attached to the linkage. I can shift into all three but I would like to replace or get suggestions. I have looked around but there is limited info or pictures on what I would need to buy or where it even mounts. Any pics of what where and how it works would be great. Or direct me to correct thread.
      Thanks
