Recommended Posts

hello to all...HI...

well im new to the quad scene and now im lovin it. i just got a 97 honda trx 300ex. when i got it,it ran ok. so ive put in a carb kit,spark plug,new rear wheels and tires adjusted the clutch but it still feels slugish..why??? i know im new to this but damn!!!

my next step is to rebuild all the gaskets on the motor as i do leak oil.and i seem to have a gass leak somewhere. can someone help me out and point me to the right direction???

also, is there anyone in the area close that knows of good ridin trails round here??

Is it all stock meaning no aftermarket pipe, air filter? You said you rebuilt the carb if you have an aftermarket pipe , performance air filter stock jetting won't work and it will not run like it should. You said it ran ok when you got it is it running worse now after the work. How did the old spark plug look & have you pulled the new plug back out and checked how it looks. A plug can tell you alot about how the motor is running. Rich or lean , burning oil etc. A compression check would help too & if the motor checks out ok I would look into the clutch if the clutch is slipping thats where your losing you get up & go. What are you comparing your quad too to say it feels sluggish it's self from how it ran when you got it or form other quads?

hey there...hi...

all is stock. i know this quad has seen better days.the slugish feeling is from what it was to now. so many carb issues. again, im new to this . dont know how and what to do to it.and now i think that starter is going.today i ran it to see how the carb kit helped. and it broke down again. the throttle body came loose. i fixed that and it drove for bout 10 minutes and it turned off again. now its getting too much gas. what a head ache...

I think I would do the compression check before sinking in money trying to fix it. If all checks out good then it may be worth getting a carb. Some carbs can be beyond rebuilding. I went thru the same thing on a Honda xr100 I ended up getting a Mikuni carb for for 38 bucks new but now I have other problems it jumped time. So it seems to have turned into a money pit. Good luck and lets know how it goes.

      Couple of quick points:
      1. the Odyssey, or FL350R. This was 30 years ahead of it's time.  Fast as greased owl crap, reliable, stupid fun.  Never took off.  Fast forward to the RAZR which was just replicating the FL350R.  What would Honda have done with it if it took off in '85?
      2. Everything about the ATC.  Reliable, good power for small displacement, easy to work on, simple front to back, still running 30 years later.  My son's 185s is 36 years old and outran a 400 Big Bear the other day until it ran out of gearing and the Big Bear caught it around 50 mph.  I can dig a 110 out of the weeds and as long as it has a little compression, I'll make it run in 2 days for about $20.  Can't do that with a Yamaha 225.
      3, 1981 250R.  What happens if you stick a CR250 2 stroke in a trike?  Yeah, a death machine.  Then by '85 the 250R had a 6 speed and would do 70 from the factory.  Death Machine +2.  The 250R gave birth to the trike racing circuit.
      4. The ATC 70.  Small, quiet and reliable.  Just never took off.  Gave birth to the entire small displacement chinese quad market.
      5. 82 200ES - first Big Red.  The BR single handedly created the UTV market as we see it today in the Ranger, Mule, etc.
      6. The ENTIRE chinese quad market in front of us today came from expired Honda patents from the 80's.
      7. 300 fourtrax.  By far the most coveted 4x4 in the market right now, absolutely indestructible.  Pick one up a couple of years old, stick massive wheels and tires on it, and you have a mud machine.  Kinda like the Polaris or Can Am...but reliable.  And cheap.
      To be fair, Yamaha, Suzuki, Kawa, all picked their game up along the way and make good ATV's.  I'll leave the Polaris/CanAm discussion for another day.  While Polaris gave birth to the automatic, the reliability issues of both still exist today.  While great ATV's, I don't consider them any more than specialty machines.
       
      FIGHT ME.
      or debate...whichever is easier.

      Passing thought here and thought I'd pitch it to the group for debate.  I'm working through a Kodiak which is basically a Big Bear in a heavier bike and the same as about anything Japanese made for 30 years as far as clutch function and design goes.  This Kodiak is odd though in that the centrifugal clutch slipped a bit with good clutch material remaining and the main clutch pack seems to slip a bit as well at high RPM but also still has good clutch material left.  Much like the Kawa race bikes from what I've read.  Do you think it's an option to add a thin washer to the pressure bolts to put a bit more pressure on the main clutch and force it to use a bit more of the clutch material before having to replace?  There's seriously like 50% of fiber left on the main clutch pack and it seems silly to replace it all before it's truly worn down.
