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.

The drum is probably rusted, replace the throttle cable and get some PB Blaster and go to town on the drum. Welcome to the site

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.

      The rear brakes on this are hydraulic and manual. The hydraulic part is all messed up so I disconnected it all and want to go just manual on the rear. I got it all put back together but doesn't seem to work to well, like not enough pressure. The manual says I should mark the casing before taking it apart which I didn't read until to late. Any ideas? I put new brake pads on.

      Figured I'd share the wealth with my over 35GB library of shop manuals. Enjoy, and everyone have a very Merry Christmas!

      when i put my finger over the hole it fell likes its pulling my finger in more then its pushing it out 
       
      Has good spark.When i took it into the shop the said it had 1oz of oil in it and a tiny pit of metal shaving(TINY BIT LIKE 30 flakes)
      When i try to pull start (push start/roll start) it made a not normal sound  and wouldnt stay running.
      If my bottom end is blow why would it still turn over fine,
      Are my valves siezed or not working properly 
      or is my timing off causeing valves to not open in correct order with fire

      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
