change the oil, dump the gas, add new gas and go from there. you got spark, so what about fuel? spray some quick start in the carb to see if it bites. maybe have to do some carb work only ...

New engine and throttle bodies an clutch and tranny. Actually it would probably be better to just replace all the guts since you don't know exactly defective.

Hopefully you wont need to change the guts, but you never know. I would try and change the oil and gas. I've sunk many atvs, but if they are not dried for a while, it could be an issue.

I've hydro-locked my pistons and had to remove the spark plugs then crank it to remove the water. But still good afterwards! :yes:

Well i did get the motor to crank for a minute but i just thru gas in the slark plug Hole i still need to clean the carb out real good and possibly order a rebuild kit for it but it will crank every now and then im guessing fuel issue but im not shure and motor looks good it didnt look bad at all

      Anyone know of a good repair besides replacement for the ever cracking Big Bear 350 intakes. Replaced with a Zoom Zoom about two operational hours ago and the new one is cracked.

      Immaculate original 1989 Honda TRX250R Quad
      Original condition with upgraded airbox and FMF exhaust (OEM airbag and exhaust included)
      Runs perfectly and is in amazing condition. If you're a 2-stroke guy, then you know the legendary 250R. Here is a prime example in original condition with original tires. Fewer than 20 hrs on the motor from new, I winterized and put in storage many years ago. Brought it out of storage, but fresh premix in and runs like the day put it away.
