Honda (TRX250X – ATC350X Conversion)

Filed under: Bikes, ATVs — nfluhart @ 12:01 am

the ATC era of the mid 80′s up until the end of the following Honda and most of the ATV industry was of any heavy-hitters, performance wise, for riding. Of course there still some thoroughbred bikes (although none Honda after 1989), but for trail riding you were limited. The Honda options of the day the TRX250X and later the TRX300EX, only middle weight

The 250X was a kick start with a nice 4-valve overhead cam engine with a transmission. The subsequent 300EX was an start model with the same engine but with a … making the displacement a larger. Yamaha had a leg-up on the really in all categories race and and the king of the sport trail was the 350 Warrior which had a stout single overhead cam engine a 6-speed transmission.

The paradigm shift occurred in with Honda’s introduction of the But up until then, no manufacturer had a 4-… trail ATV with the power, torque, and speed of the last produced in 1986. The had decent four-wheeled chassis but no power plants aside the Warrior, which was not superior to the

So during that period, could be done?

The answer: in this case you can have cake and eat it too. My choice, and the of many others before me, was to the best of both worlds the exceptional, time-tested ATC350X plant within the stability and of a four-wheeled chassis, specifically the TRX250X. And thus the infamous TRX350XX is born.

Mine of course has some upgrades…

My project started in the of 2002, and although by that there were some four-strokes available, i.e. the 400EX. Yamaha Raptor and the newly released Suzuki as a 19 year old, full college student I didn’t the means to go down and purchase a new ATV. Besides, it’s not my to buy new machines; I like to build my and my favorite thing is to combine the with the present.

This was the project for me.

As discussed in my 350X I got my hands on some ATC350X engines. The next step was to a suitable ATV chassis, preferably requiring minimal fabrication yet enough for my riding style.

While researching it on the web, my and I got some tips at Powroll and decided that a TRX250X was the way to go. Fortunately, I knew someone who had a 1991 250X. I easily it for $500. We then ordered the conversion kit including the Shotgun Supertrap 4 exhaust which at time was priced at $565.00 (the header was not stainless

  And the project began.

The 350X plant is a kick start, single overhead cam engine a 6-speed transmission (no reverse). My was to have an ultra-durable and super bike that I could put of fun miles on with minimal With this in mind, I to keep the engine as close to as possible, but I installed some upgrades.

Although my engine had never used, it had been setting on a since 1986 so I wanted to up the cylinder. I bored the sleeve and a Wiseco oversize piston kit not only enlarged the displacement but increased the compression ratio 8.5:1 to 10.25:1. The next I did was upgrade the clutch with EBC plates and heavy duty springs.

Then the engine was These were moderate that would increase without sacrificing dependability.

and fuel delivery:

Initially I with the 250X carburetor and a KN air I removed the lid from the air box for maximum air and jetted the carburetor accordingly. I installed a 400EX carburetor has a larger diameter throat and got a power gain.

The chassis was pretty much when I received it. The only was a Dura Blue heavy rear axle. I left it way initially but soon found it specifically in the suspension department. To the issue, I installed front from a 1989 TRX250R and shocks from a 1999

This widened the front and gave me a lot more suspension On the rear I installed an aftermarket shock with a remote and I added 6 inches to the width by Dura Blue polyurethane spacers on the axle. For rear I settled on 20-11-8 Maxxis tires mounted on Douglas aluminum 8 inch rear

On the front I stayed with the rims and mounted a new set of radial tires that boasted a ride with great For the operator, I recovered the seat and Tusk brand aluminum with a padded cross-bar and gel grips.

At less than $1800.00 investment, I had a good, competitive that easily held its own the new $6,000 bikes. At that it looked like this:
