What is/are the length/lengths of a throttle cable for a 1997 Honda Recon 250? Thank You

You have an inner cable and outer cable... they BOTH have to be specific lengths,(and they are not the same).. Did yours break?... get pinched?.. Its easier to purchase the original factory cable than try to make one! MANY MANY years ago you could buy all types of cable ends, inner wire, outer sheathing and make your its not $$$ feasible to make your own,, and CHANCE having it break or an end fall off (the wrong end) and end up inside your engine!!..ooppsss.. You will have to get someone who works in a parts dept. to measure a NEW one..inner and outer.

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.
