40 posts in this topic

I just picked up a 1983 honda big red 200 it doesnt have reverse but the thing is like brand new it only has about 35-40 hours on it and it runs awsome. it needs new tires what would you guys recomend for it? I want to put ice studs in it for fishing this winter. I picked up 300 studs at a garage sale this summer.

my brother still has a 1982 200 that runs. I keep teling him that it is an antique and he should frame it. he also has a 83 250 2 stroke 3 wheeler, that thing is fast, but also an antique. grin

I still have 2 84 big reds. They are at home and don't get used much, but still run like tops.

I have an 83 Big Red. Needs a new recoil though, anyone know of a reputable place to get one that isnt hsolist?

I run a 85 Yamaha 225DX 3-wheeler with chains on the rears. Runs great, but doesn't steer very well on ice at slow speeds.

Bobb-O,

Try Mohawk Salvage in Hibbing. They have a web site and they do ship out parts. I have purchased stuff there for my 84 Honda before.

McGurk, I still have one too! Have not used it in awhile but I just can't get rid of it. I bought a four wheeler a few years back but still have the "old guy". grin

Skitter, That thing is in GREAT condition. I've had to do some serious cleaning/repairing/tweaking to get mine in the shape it's in, which is a far cry from your yellow monster. Oh yeah, mine is sky blue. I'd be first in line if you ever do want to sell it!

As long as your reading, have you been able to find a carb rebuild kit for it? Mine is leaking gas from the overflow tube (I'm assuming it's the float valve) and I've just gone to turning the gas off at the petcock to stop it. Any thoughts? I read somewhere that a Timberwolf 250 4-wheeler has the same carb, but I've never been able to confirm it.

I had a Big Red like that. Wish I still had it. Brother had one of those Yamaha's and they really pop easy wheelies, SkitterPopper. Be careful with a load across the rear (passenger, deer, etc).

Gosh I love hearing Dave say he wishes he still had a Honda. I'll never get tired of hearing that wink

We have quite a collection of three wheelers up at the cabin. Starting with a 90, a 110, a 125, a 185, a 200 S and an 85 Big Red (shaft with reverse) Only one isnt usable, the 110 broke a drive chain and it wrapped around the front sproket and broke the engine case. I just took it for the parts.

I have a BIG RED 250 also, but how many of you have a snow plow for one? I think its pretty rare. I don't know if the guy I bought it from made it or what. Worked pretty well. The Ol'Red needs a little work but I've loved it for the past 10 years. I just pulled the trigger on an 08 Sportsman

Just curious if anybody would be willing to measure the length of their big red, I was thinking of picking one up for ice fishing depending on if my trailer will fit that and the shack in it

I have a 1984 Honda 200M. The thing runs like a top and has gone on many 4 wheeler trips in the past few years. That thing has seen stuff that makes 4 wheelers nervous. Solid machine and a great first ice vehicle.
