250 honda recon

I have a 2002 honda recon that i bought for going riding with some friends and when i got it home and finally got it started and everything i took it on its maiden voyage and when ever i just hit a small puddle and a little water splashes the motor but none of the electronics or anything it acts like it wants to stall and i have to give it more throttle to keep it running but when the water dries off of it it runs fine. i dont know what the problem could be because i soaked all of the plugs and made sure that the water is not getting on the wires and it still does it any suggestions???

Well I suspect water is getting into the air intake, check that first.

SOURCE: 2003 rm 250 while holding gas at mid throttle it spudders

Install a new NGK spark plug ONE HEAT RANGE HOTTER THAN STOCK . Now go back to the 32/1 gas mix. The 32/1 is what lubricates the crank bearings and piston. At 44/1 you are asking for a seized piston and/or the need for new crank bearings. Be sure to use Two Stroke Engine Oil in the gas, NOT motor oil. Use premium gas, not regular. This should take care of plug fouling.

Remove the float bowl and clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray all the little airways and fittings in the carb. Remove the two screws on the outside throat of the carb and spray into the screw holes as well.

Be sure to put these two screws back in the same hole they came out of. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two screws down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each screw one and one half turns outward. Put the rest of the carb back together, clean the air filter and install the carb. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine. This process should get you back on the road.


Please rate this solution as " FixYa " if all goes well. Thanks

SOURCE: honda cfr 150 f, will start but when I turn the throttle it stall

It sounds like a fuel problem. Drain the fuel tank, take the air filter off and spray some carburetor cleaner into the throttle bore, and make sure that the air and vacuum lines are clear and undamaged. Refill the tank with fresh gas and try it again.

SOURCE: Stalls to idle after riding for an hour.

It sounds like you probably need to replace the fuel filter, or you may have alot of trash in the bottom of your gas tank, possibly even water in the gas. If you can, take the tank off and clean it out well, making note if there is any trash in it, by emptying it into a bucket so you can examine it. Go ahead and replace the filter if you find any trash or water in the gas tank. If it is ok, then the next thing would be to check the fuel line for aging. Sometimes in rare cases, the hose gets old and weak and when you try to pull fuel through it, it can collapse and essential stop the gas flow, just as if you have turned the gas off, then when the suction is stopped the hose will open back up and appear to be in good shape. You can use your fingers and squeeze the line the entire length and see if it seems to feel excessively soft, if so that could also be causing your problem.

SOURCE: Runs great when cold, hesitates when hot.

Hi mmagliozzi
I bought a cbr 600 fy new back in 2000. After about 3 years I've always had the same problem in summer when sitting in traffic, ie. anything that put the temperature up to about half way causing the fan to cut in. I thought it was a carb problem. also thought it could be the spark plug caps(coils built in breaking down only when warm).
Anyway, mine had become so bad recently that it had become almost unrideable as it kept cutting out and spluttering, only at tickover and low revs. Anything over 3000rpm it was fine. I thought it might be an electrical problem so put a meter across the battery. It was only showing 11.5v when running at tickover. Rev it up to 2000rpm it was showing about 12.5v. It should at this rpm show more. If you have the same problem you can rule out the alternator by taking the plug of the rectifier/regulator( under the seat cowling, you can access it by removing the seat) and putting the the leads of the meter across the yellow wires. test all 3 wires. ie if you were to number them 1, 2, 3 then test form 1 to 2, 2 to 3 then 1 to 3. You should get somewhere in the region of 20v at tickover and 50v at 5000rpm. If this figure varies by a large amount between each wire ( alternator winding) then the alternator is the likely problem. But i reckon it will be your regulator/rectifier. They are not cheap at £141 from honda. You can get them from ebay but the guy at honda (mechanic)reckons they are inferior and he has had to repair bikes with boiled batteries and burnt wiring looms. This maybe nonsense but I took the safe route. Whatever one you do decide to get(if it is the rectifier/regulator at fault) then make sure it is the cast ally heat sink type not the original one which has the gubbins incased in rubber.I reckon its a design fault with the originals hence the updated replacement which disippates the heat better.
Going back to diagnosing the problem. I found mine by running the bike stationary until the fan cut in, make sure your lights are on then operate the front or rear brake light. by doing this you are loading the electrical curcuit. When I did this my bike cut out straight away or very nearly did so. Yours might not if your battery is very good. If you notice it running worse then I would bet that you have the same problem.
Hope this helps.
Dan

What can i do to keep my 2004 honda 250 recon from being so cold natured


Are you comfortably taking apart, cleaning and checking your carburetor? Got a lot of experience with the recons - cleaning that carb and checking it out is the #1 place I'd start. Here are your vacuum lines - for the TE TM - I can show you exactly how to tear down, check, set and put back together that carb or most of any other. Just let me know - Thanks, Justin M. 17 South Industries, LLC 2002 2003 2004 HONDA RECON TRX250TM TRX250TE CARB HOSE ROUTING - there's your routing - check all of the hoses first. If they're all fine - take the carb off. If you don't have the specs/tech info just let me know and I'll make sure you see how to do it by the book.

I have a 2002 honda 250 ES Recon. The problem I'm having is it will not shift - but the 1st gear light blinks repeatedly and it can only be shifted manually with the tool. I do not have the break down...


drain the old oil out of it and put some fresh 10w40 in there and see how it shifts then...screw this blinking light ...does the engine kick over? great!! now just start riding it,,,its a motorcycle right? if it doesn't shift because i'm not in the right rpm range i"d get rid of it.
I shift manually with a big boot. and work those gears in with the new fresh oil, it probably has a little jam between the dogs or something.once you get it fixed quickly change the oil/filter again.
tell me if this helped. thanks!
