Why I choose Honda

Recommended Posts

In 1985 my dad bought our first 4-wheeler off the showroom floor in West Virginia. It was an '85 Honda Fourtrax 250. My Uncle drove Suzuki Quadrunners which were (to be honest) great bikes as well! So we were all constantly testing each other to see whos was better.

Lemmie tell you something...that Honda was in no other ways to describe it....BULLETPROOF! It never needed any major repairs, it survived mudholes that todays 4-wheel drives have trouble with and it had a front end that weighed as much as a tank. The only repair we ever made to it was that the muffler had fallen off due to rust. It was kept at my grandfathers place in WV and at one point it went completely untouched for years. Going back up there we expected at the very least...a dead battery. It fired up without breaking a sweat.

No ATV on earth comes close to Honda quality. They truely are built to last and even though I enjoy riding Suzuki's and others as well...there will always be a Honda in my garage. Because when I take it out on the trail, I am guarenteed its gonna get me back home.

They dont die. We put that bike through hell and back and it ran like a dream all the way up until it was stolen in 2003.

I say quad thieves should get the death penalty or life in prison. Although im a Grizzly rider now i have alot lot of great memories of riding Hondas

      I
      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

      Does anyone on here have a 2013 honda rancher? I have had several Honda ranchers in the past but I bought this 2013 rancher and it hits the rev limiter at half throttle. It is very annoying and I was wondering if anyone else's Rancher does this. If this is something from the factory or if I have a problem or not just trying to figure it out. Any help would be appreciated
