I just put new clutches in 85 honda 250 four trax y are thay steeel sliping

Sometimes you need to adjust your clutch cable. as the disks wear out you have to tighten it to get it to disengage. if the cable is adjusted too tight then it will slip because it is not taking all the pressure off the disks so they can fully grab. That is where i would start

Why wont my rubica 4 wheeler go in reversa

If you have a Honda Rubicon, you must place the transmission in Neutral, then pull in Left Hand brake and push down Reverse knob that will remove the reverse lockout and allow you to shift it into reverse. If that doesn't work your reverse lockout knob might be defective or out of adjustment. The adjuster, depending on which model you have, will be on one end of the reverse lockout cable.

2004 Honda four-wheeler will shift up won't shift down

If it will try to shift up and will not shift down to neutral and if its a es model and you cannot get it to shift down with the shifter tool fouund in the tool box on the rear then it will most likely be the arm gearshift part # 24620-HN5-M00.
also if it is stuck in reverse and will not shift up this is the problem
the front clutch cover will have to be removed and the pressure plate clutch will have to be moved up slightly. just remove the nut and then lift until it hits the centrifugal clutch back and you will have enough room to slide it up off the splines and remove it.
also the lower oil pipe will have to be removed also held in by two 10 mm bolts.

the ear of the shift claw some call it will be broken.
the part will be #10 in the schematic

Clutch slipping on new bike so has no traction on start. Brand new Bike. Peter


Being in proper adjustment ensures that your clutch is FULLY disengaging when you pull the lever and is fully engaging when you release the lever. This will make sure that it will not slip under acceleration or drag when the lever is in. It will also prolong the life of the clutch, making it last longer.
Also note, normally there is an adjustment at the clutch itself AND an adjustment of the cable to ensure proper free-play on the cable, this is for making sure there is no tension or pressure being applied to the clutch with the lever fully released.

Here is how you can fix your clutch:-

Drain the oil out of the 4-wheeler. This is done by unscrewing the drain plug under the engine. If you have a skid plate obstructing the plug, remove it first. Remove the clutch cover with a socket and ratchet. Inspect the gasket and replace if it is worn, cut or ripped.

Remove the pressure plate by loosening the bolts with a socket and ratchet. Loosen in a crisscross pattern so that the pressure plate comes off easily and won't bind. There are springs behind the bolts, so be careful not to loosen them. When removing the pressure plate be aware of the lifter behind it and make sure you don't lose it. Remove the friction plates from inside the clutch compartment. Remove the jutter springs and make a note of how they are positioned. This will make the reinstall process easier.

Reverse the steps to reinstall. When installing the bolts on the pressure plate and the clutch cover, consult your service manual for the right torque pressure.

I have a Panther 110 4 wheeler that runs great but won't pull. Have changed the clutch and carbuerator but still won't pull

Have the valves checked. The will after time come out of adjustment. It is something you can do yourself in a clean area. On the front of the engine there is what looks like a big bolt head ( 1 on top and 1 on bottom of motor on head). Remove them both, and by manually turning the engine over( spark plug removed) put the piston on top dead center(TDC). Watch the lifters as you turn the motor over to see witch lifter is closed/open. The closed lifter(lifter will be down when closed). On the lifter there is a small lock nut. loosen the nut so you can turn the adjustment screw. Turn the screw in till it touches the spring cap. You should be able to slightly move the rocker side to side but not up and down. This is a good way to adjust the valves without a feeler gauge. Hope this helps.
