98 Honda Recon 250 S PROJECT #2

Well, I had so much fun with my last recon project (look at avatar pic). That I picked up another. I paid $200 from my buddy that bought it from my other buddy.

Well, After I got all the mud/crap cleaned off and engine pulled/cleaned up.

Fuse is cut out and wires twisted (oh my..)

Rear stator cover is taken off (supposively stator went bad, I have 2 covers/2 stators, Duno which one is the 'good one'.

Whoever did the work looked like they worked in a gravel driveway, theres pieces of junk all over the flywheel...

The engine is out, I dont believe its swapped (havent turned it over or anything).

What can I do to 'check' to see if its any good without re installing and seeing what happens?

I have $200 in it, I think I can split the cases rebuild it and still be money ahead.

Going to put bolts/honda pop rivits back in plastics/bolt down racks,weld the bumper (broken). Maybe throw some armor all on it

Clean the motor out. Clean tank/petcock/carberator.

Still need tips on how to see if motor is any count.

And it has really nice tires on the back, probably new dirt devils!

Ok here are the pictures.

Its empty (rear case is off)

Its nice and black..

But the rear case is NASTY its got lil pieces of crud all over the place (Doesnt look swamped, I know what that looks like). Can yall see the pictures, there really small to me. Here are a few more

If anyone is parting a red square recon, I need a toolbox door/light/wire/And the top of the box that 'snaps' on. And a ignition switch/key, mines ripped off he lost the key hunting and just hotwired it

Talked with a few ridin' buddies today, they all said it ran good until it stopped charging? So they replaced the stator or something, and never got it done/got stuck couldnt figure it out? I dunno but at least 3 people said it was running about a month ago? So who knows, im taking the lil lady out tom. nite but later this week i'll flush it out for good measure and start reassembly! It has a BRAND new UNI air filter!

Gonna put new sparkplug/oil in it for good measure after I get it buttoned up/running.

Need:

Toolbox door (RED)
Toolbox lid (RED)
Ignition switch (he lost the key)



If anyone has any parts/parting out a recon, let me know! Thanks

Since you can do the work, sounds like it won't be a bad deal at all. At $200, you can afford to do anything to it in time. Good luck!

Yeah, I really enjoy tinkering with them. Im only 18 and senior in HS and (not to brag) know more about these lil 4wheelers than anyone else in our riding group/or at school. Maybe I should open my own shop..lol

More big updates later this week
