SOURCE: a battery was hooked up backwards in car we now

yes there are several fuses including a large amperage fuse in the outside fuse box probably 50 or 100 amp, take your time and carefully check all the fuses inside the pass compartment and under the hood ,youll probably find at least 3-5 fuses blow.

SOURCE: Hooked my battery up backwards

You blew a fuse. Im guessing most likely culprit is a fusible link. try both sides of fusible links found by your battery. both sides should show your approximate battery voltage. check all fuses especially ones that show power regardless of the ignition switch being on or off.

I have a 04 Trx 250 recon. I get into high rpm and the motor cuts out and it sounds like someone puts a silencer over the exhaust. I've had carb cleaned. I'm seriously stumped on this.

Male sure the air intake tract is clear and the filter is CLEAN... Make sure you have the correct spark plug.. make sure its a "R" plug..(resistor) and gapped at .032" - .035". Make sure the float level is correct.

My 2007 honda recon 250 backfires a little as u gear down is this normal?

There is a screw on the bottom rt side of the carburetor. Loosen this and it will allow the water or trash flush out of the bowl.
Also try turning the fuel screw out half to a full round. This should fix your lean running problem.
And no it should not bbackfire on deceleration.

A little vibration is normal.
Check all three motor mounts. They should be tight and the rubber insulator should be firm.

My lights quit working

Hi Brandon
Use a 12v multimeter or a test light to trace fault from headlamp backwards.
Probably check across each fuse first to see if you've blown one.
Check one side of the Headlamp switch for voltage first.
No volts there means no power to headlamp. then trace back.

Like all electrical troubleshooting, it's a process of elimination.
Take a piece of paper and draw a headlamp circuit.
Battery, Fuse, Switch, various connectors, and Headlight.
Use that to guide your tracing.
Good Luck
