I purchased a 250 honda 2 wheel drive and can not find a model or vin number on it. Can anyone tell me where they are usually at? It looks similar to an ex model , chain drive solid rear axle.

That is an odd one. As far as I know, Honda chain drive 250s haven't been made since the early 1990s. The 250EX is a longtitudinal engined shaft drive bike, sharing lots of components with the Recon. Most Hondas seem to have the VIN on top of the front top frame crossmember, between the bull bar mounting points.

It could be an early 90s model. Don't have any idea

Put some decent pictures up. Full side view, front view etc. Someone on here may recognise it.

Google a few images of the early 1990s 250x. I recon that is the model. Very good engine, better than the later, longtitudinal one, in my opinion.

Thete is something wrong with transmission on this one. When you move the shift lever nothing happens. You do not feel the detente of the shift drum

I have never worked on those engines, and the shaft drive 300s with a similar engine, don't seem prone to gearbox problems at all. Later, longtitudinal engines seem to break the levers on the gearshift shaft, the pawl, and the star wheel on the shift drum can come loose. Probably one of those faults on your machine.

Do you know if that requires splitting the case

Looks like the LH cover for the alternator, also covers the shift mechanism. Take this cover off and the mechanism will be visible.
