1995 Honda 300 - Carb Problems

Recommended Posts

My Honda 4trax 300 will not start nor run unless the choke is engaged. It runs best when the choke is completely engaged. Cleaned and looked at everything I know to try......any suggestions?

spray some carb clean as it is running, and add some fuel cleaner additive and see if that helps. i know the hondas love the choke, but once its warmed up, it shouldn't need it. how's the air filter?

what did you all clean? sounds to me like your carb jets and/or fuel filter need to be cleaned...

I have a 91 300 fourtrax, I only need choke on very cold starts, and then only for about 10 seconds...but they're all different!

Check for rust inside the tank. pull the pilot (slow speed) jet from the carb and run some fine wire through the hile until you can see light through it. DO NOT atempt to drill out the hole. Just clean the jet really good..

      I bought a Honda 250sx 1986 but the exhaust is broken. Apparently it's not possible to order a new one. I checked to order one on others compagny but there's noting.
      Do you know which exhaust it's possible to install. Is there a company who sold an exaust to fit on my 250sx.
      Sorry for my english
      Thank you

      Im working on a old 1987 honda 125 4 wheeler in the school shop. It will start by getting pulled by another 4 wheeler but wont start with the pull start or Electric Start. When you pull start it it tries to start but when you try the electric start it just turns over but doesnt even act like it wants to start. The spark plug is dry and it shoots fuel out of the back(air filter side) of the carb. Weve had the carb off twice and it is complety clean. What are some things we can try?

      Hope someone can help with this one.
      We took our 1984 Honda TRX 200 to the shop and they had it for about 2 weeks before they finally called and said that they had cleaned the carb and changed the battery and that it had started up.
      We went and got it and when we got home it would not start so we called them, they said bring it back in, so we did. They called us the next day and said they changed the spark plug, and that it was running. We went and got it again and it ran when we drove it off the truck.
      We parked it for about an hour because we were going to get ready to go on a ride. Well, it wouldnt start again.
      So we called them and they said the last thing they could do was order a new CDI box and put that on. I decided to just buy it myself, so I didnt have to pay them labor again. We put the new one on today and its still not starting.
      Does anyone have any ideas on what we could check to see what in the world is going on with this thing?
      Please and Thank you
