recently picked up some project bikes off CL for cheap. got a honda fourtrax (the ancient 4x4 kind with the straight axle in the front as well as the rear and a back-up kick-start) plastics are crap, but my goal is to get running like a champ and patch the plastics up and sell to one of my many friends that want a reliable 4x4 for dirt cheap and doesnt care what it looks like.
so the former owner says it needs carb rebuilt, but its sat for 3+ years since so who knows. things I see: carb is missing (he gave me a box of parts along with the bike), engine turns over and feels good with kick-start, brakes need work, battery missing (That always puts me off, cause then I know most likely someone's been tampering with the electrical.

I posted earlier looking for a wiring diagram, but maybe someone can help me with the problem if they’ve had it before.
The quad Will start and idle ok, when I open the throttle it will rev all the way up until WOT and then it dies back down to idle, and if I keep the throttle wide open it will rev back up. It will do this over and over and over.
I replaced the carb, (twice), Rectifier, battery, and spark plug. The Stator ohmed out to the proper specs from dinli. The other issue i can see is I’m not getting 12v on the choke circuit. The lights don’t work either.
possible bad key switch? Maybe the new rectifier is bad? All the contacts on the key switch also ohm out properly
comprsssion is up to 125 psi and spark is there.
Reed valves look great.....
im at a loss. Any trouble shooting advice would be appreciated.

Im on the quad and my buddy is on the cr125, rides it pinned cause it can barely make the jumps which resulted in him blowing it up mid day hence the picture of him holding the beer.. hah
Hope you enjoyed!
My wife and I have been away for a little over a week..out of state...
We got a chance to check out Hawaii and stayed in Waikiki. we flew 2 hours down to Atlanta from NY, then 10 hours direct to Honolulu.
Pretty amazing as we've never even been to the carribean. We got a chance to got to Pearl Harbor and passed the Kahloa Ranch on a drive up the coast, where you can rent an ATV, but didn't do it. Attached some pics for anyone interested in checking out the scenery.. Also got attacked by some parrots..lol....Aloha and Mahalo for reading this thread!
This first pic was taken Monday night, my wife is standing in about a foot of snow. It was a little deeper there from the wind, but we had a good 8-10" on the ground by Tuesday morning when the next pic was taken. The other two were taken Tuesday afternoon after I got done playing with the 500R. I got to play in the snow for a good three days straight. Rode both quads around and took my car to some empty parking lots for some snow donuts. Note the snow stuck in the wheels of the Subaru.
