Default Honda three wheeler

i have a honda ATC 350X. unfortunatly it has a bad seal on the drive shaft that i cant figure out how to fix, i also need to tighten the chain and two of the three bolts holding the oil filter cover on broke when i tried to reemove it, and thanks to the chain being loose there is a small hole in the ceank case.

it sounds like alot of problems but im not too good with small engines and atv stuff. if there is anybody out there who would be willing to help me fix these or would be willing to fix it for a price let me know.

For the hole in the crankcase you either need a new case, or clean it really good and rough it up with sandpaper and jb weld it. On the oil filter cover you are going to have do drill the bolts, and extract them, or jsut totally drill it out and re tap it. For the chain you should be able to loosen the big bolt that holds the swing arm to the frame, and then tighten the tensionors on the rear axle, at least that how it is on my 200x.

i was able to extrct the bolts, and i put the jb weld on last night but its still tacky so i put a small heat lamp on it, i think to tighten the chain i meed some kind of spanner wrench but i dont know where i would get one. there are some bolte on the back of the swing arm and a fixture that looks like it needs to be rotated.

I Think the 350x is shaft driven, and the 250r is chain, but i could be wrong.

im pretty sure they are all chain driven, mine has a chain and all of them i have ever seen have chains, i wish it had a shaft for ground clearance issues and they dont have to be tightened. i got that all figured out though.

now i just need to replace the brakes pads front and rear, buy headlight bulbs, get the new brackets for the swing arm skid weelded on and replace the clutch (mine slips in 5th and 6th gear sometimes) i dont know if thats normal or not but it does so i think i need to reeplace it.

Clutch slippage in 5th or 6th indicates that it is worn... Replace the friction plates, and I would also change the springs (go with a heavy duty spring kit)... I believe you have to soak the plates in engine oil for 24 hours.

If the steel plates look glazed or burnt, I have heard of guys using a piece of plate glass with some ultra fine wet-sand paper and some oil and laying the discs on it and moving them around in a circular motion (not spinning, more like the old "Spirograph" type circles) to "re-dress them" You will want to be careful not to remove too much material, I would think... They should end up with crosshatching similar to when you hone a engine cylinder.

If the basket is worn from the clutch plates riding on it, you may need to replace it, as it could cause the slipping as well.

Torque for the center nut is 72-87 ft-lbs
and for the 4 bolts that hold the lifter plate 7-10 ft-lbs

That is right from the manual...

Good luck, J

When my honda slipped, I just sanded the palates with some 200 grit, Not really the right way but I rode the shit outta that thing, probably put a few hundred miles on it and i was overweight for the bike and it still wasn't slipping when I sold it.

Float bowl ones can sometimes be removed with Needlenose vise-grips...

Yea I was kidding, no turbo kits for those, but you can make a turbo fit on anything if you try hard enough.
