450r swingarm question

4 posts in this topic

I recently bought my first 450r from a buddy of mine :D its a 2005 with a JD widening kit(i think thats the brand), pro circuit full exhaust, jet kit, k&n filter, outerwear, ITP rims, front bumber, AC six pack rack, custom seat, and i think its +4 on the swingarm. Would the swingarm give me trouble at an mx track? :confused: im definitely going to take off the lowering/widening kit

JMO, if I were tracking this beast, I opt to go without it, but I believe you will be fine either way....it just comes down to how it feels for you.

Yeah it would definitely help if you switched it for a stock one but i think you will fine at the track until you do, it will probably just handle a little weird. But since you plan on MXing it i would look for a stock swing arm as soon as you can, or a aftermarket one like Houser or JD.

      So i recently bought a Honda TRX 450r 05 kick start model i am the 3rd owner. this bike ripped when it was running but i ceased it.I freed up the piston but there is little compression now. i think i ran it out of oil but it was like 20hrs or so since the last oil change. My real question is that i heard you have to rebuild the top end every 15 hours is this true? Now i have bought a new big bore kit to replace the cylinder and the piston but i dont really want to have to rebuild it every 15hrs.

      I'm brand new to riding. Also brand new to fixing and/or maintaining a vehicle. I picked up a 2008 KFX a couple months ago and just realized that a wire was hanging. After downloading the owner's manual, I think I may have narrowed it down to the "Inlet Air Temperature Sensor". It fits in a slot underneath the seat, in the air filter housing. I'm not sure how long it's been unplugged and, honestly, I have no idea what it does.
      How important is this piece? I'm going to the track this weekend. I'm not even sure how to reattach it.
      Any help is greatly appreciated.

      Took my 05 for a ride yesterday after getting it dynoed and tuned and it scared me. I had a dead empty tank before I started it (brother needed gas ) and when I was riding it at steady throttle I could feel it giving up a little and it was popping way more and backfiring on decel. I was riding with a friend who was also having problems with his quad when mine just gave up and died in 5th gear so I pulled in the clutch and popped it in 4th so it would start. It started and seemed to run fine after a while at a stop sign talking and worrying. Seemed to not "give up" on steady throttle after a while. I was thinking this all could be the result of a dirty carb since I had an empty tank (all the garbage at the bottom). Any input?
      Part 2 : Ever since before the dyno and tune my quad ticks steadily when I'm letting it out of first gear. Why would this be happening?
      Its a 2005 Honda 450r with a pro circuit full exhaust, k&n filter, no lid, no pre filter, and sprockets.
