Question about Honda 2006 TRX 250EX

1 Answer

Engine missing in gear

I just bought a 2006 TRX 250ex. It was sitting in the person garage for a while. The person I bought it from told me they have only had it out about 4 times. The quad is in great condition. It idles a. Once you rev it up it starts to miss and if you put it in gear it runs like it is missing. I pulled the carburator off and made sure the jets where d there was no blockage. Does anyone what what could be wrong with this quad???

Check your Air Filter, clean it out, check for obvious blockages. Change the filter if it looks well used (look for excessive dust or color change on the inner part of the filter) or obvious wear.
Check for other blockages around the air filter inlet.

Check the spark plug, just change it for a new one so that eliminates that possibly.

Check your fuel filter and replace if needed.
Check the fuel tank for corrosion or dirt in the fuel. Empty it out, Clean it and add new fuel, be sure you have the correct fuel.
Check your Air / Fuel mix adjustment screws on the carburetor.

Hope that helps a bit
Good Luck

2006 trx680 suddenly idles at 1600-1800 rpm. ...??

Hey Richard, if nothing has changed or no one has worked on your Honda... you may have developed an air leak,,, this will cause sudden high idle.
Other possibilities are a pinched throttle cable... or one that has been pulled out of the top of the carb...

Honda forman 1995 throttle handle getting verry hot. why?

If you bought it used, you probably weren't told someone had installed a heated grip. There are two types: One is the actual grip with a heating element and the other is a thin heating element that tapes onto the handle bar and the grip is slip back over it. Look to see if either on are present on your ATV. If so you may have a thermostat or HI-LO switch to lower the heat.

Engine dies out after driving 1-4 mile on a 2010 honda trx 420

I do need more info.. BUT, #1 the main ignition coil could be going bad..when it gets hot (electrically), it starts breaking down internally, #2, could be a clogged fuel system,, the system is vented to allow fuel to flow through the petcock to the carb. If the fuel tank is totally sealed, it will vacuum lock. Let the atv sit for a few minutes, then it repeats this cycle? #3- make sure the vent tubes on the carb are clean and will flow air through them!! These are the three most obvious choices and a great starting point. Make sure your air filter is clean and in good shape!!!!!!
