Thank you for your help. I didn't know how to edit my 1st post so I replied that I realized I made a typo. My Honda TRX200 is not an '86, but it IS an 1984.
I already have a digital copy of the operator's manual and repair manual, thank you.
This 4 wheeler is the quietest I have ever heard. So when it starts, it is hard to realize it at first. It is hard to hear if it is getting a spark.
My son was riding with it the other day and it just flat out died. He swore he did not accidentally touch the engine cut-off switch on the left bar. I still can't get it to start again.
The engine cut-off switch is in the middle, the key is on start, I have not touched the throttle, and I use the decompressor flap, the gear is in neutral, and I pull on the rope. I keep repeating and repeating and nothing happens. Grrrrr
I pulled the seat off. There is a bundle of red wires tied together. I know someone has rewired something themselves (i.e. headlight, taillight, etc). One of the wires was broke. So I reconnected it via heatshrink crimper. I unbundled the wires and noticed something VERY odd. One of the other red wires goes from the positive terminal of the dead battery to the negative terminal. No wonder the battery is dead. That must be something to bypass something. It is a wonder it was running before.
The carberator was overhauled by the prior owners mechanic.
I may just have to do a rewiring of this 4 wheeler. Oh joy.
