new to site AND atvs.  picked up jacked up 1986 fourtrax 250 off craiglist - engine end of starter shredded to pieces, which flattened a few teeth on the idle gear (see picture)

I think it's called the idle gear - it has inner smaller / outer larger toothed wheels - one wheel connects to the teeth on the starter - I know basically NOTHING about engines, gears, etc. but am learning.

 

shoot me a price.  i'm only a few hours north of you.  send pic when can - I need to do some measuring to ensure it's the right size. 

 

** also shoot me prices on carb (only if original) and front light if available - I have no idea what contraption carb is on this bike at present - see picture

you need to pull the starter, and see if any teeth from it has stripped as well ?.

DRA) , I think I been thru this same thing with someone before , I have some 250 engines that are taken apart , those gears are already gone  or broken  teeth  , I have a couple , maybe 3  complete 250 engines between 85-87 , I would not want to take the gears out of one of them as they are complete engines , some with wiring harnesses and electrical components still connected , do you want to buy an entire engine ?  -----

No sir, not an entire engine - although that likely would take a lot of headache away.  What would you sell an engine for?  A couple hundred bucks I imagine.  I wouldn't think this machine ain't worth but $300-400, if that - it doesn't run yet.  I've been looking online at starter gears - around $40-50 - but I gotta make sure there ain't more going on in the innards. 

 

If your electric start piece was available I might be interested in that.  It also has no driver's side brake handle/cable apparatus or front light (wiring is there but no light or frame to hold light).

battery turned neutral light on but was badly rusted at terminals - will get new battery

before I pour a buncha cash into this thing, tell me if this plan is sensible - remember, I am a novice - my "plan" may be idiotic

1) buy/install starter and starter/idler gear - $100

2) buy battery - $50

3) inspect/clean carb - throttle cable is rigged but operable from what I can tell

4) haven't yet tested spark plug for spark

5) can't I jump this thing with a screwdriver using solenoid once battery is in?  i'd rather try this first to see if it'll at least turn over and there ain't no grinding in main part of engine, then can purchase ignition switch w/ key for $15-20 on amazon if I decide to pursue it; if grinding / other stuff heard, i'll try to piece out the parts or take it to scrap yard

Seems I remember something about different numbers of teeth on different model years  , but maybe that was the 350A and 350D I am thinking about

I just looked and there was a change , 85 is different than 86-87 ---

These are the number of teeth on the three gears

85  was 27/27/21 teeth 

86-87 was 43/18 - 25/21  confusing how one gear ( 43/18) is listed as  two different teeth numbers for the same gear 

 

I would think that the gears from 85 to the 86-87  are interchangable as long as you change them as  a set , the later  set may have improved start ' abillity or fixed a problem with teeth breaking as I have read this same problem of broken teeth quite a few times now , it has never happened to me 

so be careful what you buy , watch the number of teeth of each gear

1- starter gears are always on ebay, make sure you purchase the correct set for your YEAR !.

2- careful on what brand battery you buy ?, and NEVER RUN IT WITHOUT A BATTERY INSTALLED !.

3- TRASH THAT CARB !, its not the oem/CORRECT CARB FOR THAT ATV !!.

4-but a new spark plug, regardless if that old one works or not ?.

5- yes, you can jump the solenoid once a new battery is installed.

6- almost any front brake lever from any honda atv from a 250 fourtrax to trx300 will work, posb even a lever from a trx450 as well ?.

Good questions 

you can go to Rocky Mountain atv or Partzilla and look up your machine. They have your machine listed by frame VIN and illustrated parts breakdowns showing part numbers. You need this info to get the best OEM parts.

not all sellers know or acknowledge the differences in parts applicability. Like members ^^^ said every year there were advances in reliability and performance resulting in different parts
