Honda 250 ATC SX, ES, R - Whats the difference?

Recommended Posts

I was looking to buy a manual for an 85, ATC250 three wheeler I have recently acquired.

Seems there are three different kinds: SX, ES and R. Can someone tell me what the differences are? I had bought this thing at midnight and had to leave the next day. So Im not able to run out there and look at it. I was hoping to have the manual there once I get home. It will go in reverse but not forward. But shaft appears to be turning. But I havent spent any time at all with it yet.

the 250R was a two stroke, the 250ES was electric start and shaft drive i believe, and the 250SX a motocross suspension package of sorts i think ...

S, E, ES, M are usually utility models, X, R, and SX are sport or racing.

How was turning on it? I drove a Honda 300 or 350 trike when i was younger. It was to unstable for me. Cant imagine an oil burner with three wheels turning fast.

      Just bought (Tue. evening) an '89 Suzuki 250 4wd that has been sitting out the last 5 yrs. It's complete, including the shift knobs, battery cover, and headlights. It has the optional cooling fan on it (probly stuck - didn't check), and the engine isn't locked up. Plastic looks good and isnt cracked. Racks aren't bent up. Shift lever works, the foot brake moves (needs oil - have to pull it up by hand), and there's black oil and no water in the engine sight glass. Guy was asking $125 and gladly took $100 for it. Anxious to get started on bringing it back to life. Been wanting one of these for years. As soon as I can get to it (working on a junky "Jackel" right now - Chinese Yamaha Timberwolf). I'm going to pull the tank off it and clean it, clean & possibly rebuild carb, put in new plug, and a battery, then see what happens. If nothing, will keep going until it runs. Feel free to respond if you want to, I'm mainly just excited and wanted to tell somebody.

      I just bought two 1985 TRX250's from my father-in-law. One runs great, the other not so much. The one is having issues with the shifter. The shifter seems to be resting lower than normal. When I press the shifter downward, it just pops back up. Any thougjts as to what the issue might be?

      Hello all, 
      i just rebuilt the top end of a 99 Bear Tracker 250 and it can’t get it to hit off of gasoline or starter fluid. Occasionally it will backfire. Right now I’m just trying to get it to fire off without the carburetor like I’ve done a thousand times before with other engines. Usually there is no response, but occasionally I get a backfire through the intake. ISeems like it’s out of time, but I don’t see how that could be possible. 
      Here’s what I know:
      1. compression 120psi
      2. all timing marks are lined up after numerous revolutions. 
      3. Strong spark. 
      4. Valves adjusted correctly. 
      Thanks in advance.
