To trouble shoot problems with Honda ATV engine first thing is check the spark plugs for wear, check the air lines for holes or leaks,if you have a carburetor check to see if choke is on or stuck, make sure ignition is on, check battery. If none of this leads you somewhere bring your Honda ATV to your local specialist!

the easiest way to trouble problems with the engine on honda atv is, go to your honda factory service manual, to the engine section, and in the rear of the section are the trouble shoot pages.

I would take the ATV to a local Honda dealer and let them service it to avoid causing further harm. Or if you are a skilled mechanic I would use the owner's manual and see if you can figure out what the cause of the problem is using process of elimination.

You should check your spark plug first. Open it. Check the gap on the top hed. Clean it properly by a fresh cloth. Plug it and try starting.

Start with the ignition if it does not start , replace the electric starter. If it turns over without starting , check the fuel line for clogs. Atvs are famous for having obstructions due to dirt.

Just any electronic connection plug may cause something like this. Poor connection -voltage drops, ampere increase and connection overheating etc. Something related to temperature. I have good battery on the machine. Just too many electronics on the Honda , to many trouble sources.

My ATV motor stops running after the engine warms up. Almost at the same time or a little later as the fan motor starts. After 5 minutes of waiting it starts again and runs another 10-15 minutes after which it stops again. Some electrical connection problem ? Relay ?
