82 Honda ATC200 Idle issue

Recommended Posts

So I tore apart the carb and took out 30 years worth of rust and mud. Looks pretty now. Re-installed and got it running. After setting the pilot screw to factory recomendations. Seat, then back it out two, I tried to adjust the throttle stop screw to make it idle correctly. It seemed to be idling fine, I drove it around the block a couple times, and when I stopped in neutral to idle the rpm's started to climb and started pumping out white smoke. I killed the engine before any damage could be done. Any suggestions? The throttle stop screw was adjusted to almost all the way seated before it would idle correctly. :confused:

I will give it a shot! Thanks! I will probably be back on here next week trying to figure out the clutch! Seems to be shifting kind of hard... Or maybe I am not properly using it..

So me, being the inexperienced dummy I can sometimes be, spent 20 minutes cussing the bike cause it wouldn't start, then my buddy came up, switched it to the on position, and it cranked try number one ha ha. Then today at work I had a friend look at it with me when he questioned me having the choke on. I swore up and down it was off! Then we warmed it up, kicked the choke off, and it purred... almost... seems to be getting too much air still. I guess I will learn everything the hard way with this thing

      x   just bought this expedition 425 and the Speedo needle does not work. The lights work for the shift indcator. So is this an electronic Speedo or cable? Is there a way to fix it or will I have to replace the unit? Thanks for any help you can provide.

      My four wheeler when i first got it seemed like it was very slow when i first got it and it had no throttle response so i replaced the belt and cleaned all of the rollers thinking that would solve the problem from what i read on the forums. well it turned out that it wasnt. so i went to the next thing i took out the injector to check it out and i seen that there was a tiny bit of debree in it so i cleaned it and it seemed to improve a little bit. but still did not solve the problem. i later found out how to find the trouble codes out from the lcd screen using a paper clip on the diagnostic port and it showed the code which stood for no codes C00. i also forgot to mention that the throttle position censor is working perfect. before i started all of this the four wheeler ran just not to its potential. after my friend and i did the trouble code test the bike wouldnt even start anymore and the injector would spray for a few seconds for the start up then it stops and the fuel injection light comes on and blinks. the four wheeler wouldnt start anymore. i took it over to the local shop and they hooked it up to the computer to see if there was any codes and it still showed it was free of codes. they hooked it up to the fuel pressure gauge and we found that it was making 22 pounds and it should be making around 43. i then bought a new fuel pump and put it in. it now starts and runs for a few seconds and then it stalls out and the fuel injection light comes on again. which then leads me to think it is the ecu now but i want to be sure before i invest around $500 more into it. any opinions on whether or not anyone thinks this is the problem or if they have had a similar problem before would be really appreciated. sorry for writing a novel and not spelling very well. also i forgot to put the year in the title it is a 2007
