Recommended Posts



I ordered the parts and will be uploading pictures soon. Any tips will be appreciate. Also if anyone knows is a genuine Polaris head gasket necessary. Im using a Namura top end gasket kit.

Thanks for the info on the gasket. It overheated and that, blew the head gasket over pressurizing the coolant system and cant run very long without overheating.

Wow that sucks but hopefully it’s just gaskets and that’s it! Do you know why it over heated ? Reason I’m asking is you don’t want to do all that work and have it over heat again. 😬

Traced the problem to bad fan switches and faulty thermostat which I thought would fix it, but it was overheated by previous owner and my brother was riding and didn't shut it off with the light, not till it gave a cloud of steam.

Oh ok, dam that hurts man.  Well good luck with the rebuild and make sure the head or cylinder is not warped from heat when you break it down and post some pics! I love to see pics.  You found  the right forum to help you out if you need! 

Good luck brother.

Alright I'm am going to explain this teardown. 

1. Remove upper rack 4 t27 star bolts.

2. Remove front grill piece says polaris brand on it.

3. Remove plastic that covers the fuse brr. ( right under handle bars).

4.remove the metal part of the rack. 

5. Remove the front grille held in by few bolts. steps 4 and 5 are actually in wrong order do 5 first than 4.

6. Renove the seat really easy. 

7. Statt removing the front fender/ all front plastics as one assembly  simply loosen about the bottom 3 screws per side. Where fender meets with footrest plastic. Fender flares can stay on. Then remove gas cap, and screws on front fascia( fuse panel area -2 screws). 2 screws on plastics right under the seat as well. Then remove the cvt breather right near gas tank. Unlosen clamps and gently pull out. Might have to pull loose the airbox for this. Removal is needed anyways.

8. Remove upper assembly for headlight and loosen lower plastic of headlight assembly too so it can move easier.  

Then fight and semi gently pull plastics around handle bars with fenders and all. With it loose access will be radical.

9. Remove fuel tank put cap back on first pull it out as much as possible before removing fuel lines less mess this way and save the gas. After all loose pour in container.  Only 2-4 scres/bolts hold it on.

10.Then remove airbox start remove upper lid (if not done already). Will see now see bare filter, loosen clamps from carberautor side rubber boot and the airbox including filter will come out. 

11. Next it to remove carberator with intake as one piece.unloosen bolts that hold intake to the  head. Then unloosen bolts bolts that hold carberator bracket to frame. Carb will then have room to slide back I didn't undo cables or anything just slide it back out of the way.

      For those that have been pulling hair out-
      It took me a month to figure this out, but I am glad to report that I have figured out how to repair my 2004 450ES Speedometer

      If you have a Honda Foreman 02-04 450 ES model ( 4 indicator lights on top of meter)
      or a Honda Foreman 99-00 450 ES model ( 3 indicator lights on top of meter)
      or aOnda Rancher 00-03 TRX350ES

      and your display:

      - Is Blank

      - does not show the gear indicator spot at all (not the gear or --) but the
      backwards "L" that goes around the gear position - its just blank

      -your miles and hours have reverted to zeros or all 9"s and possibly now shows KM now instead of Miles

      -your speed shown seems to have almost doubled (possibly KMs per hour even thought it shows Miles)

      What has happened is your EEPROM chip on motherboard has lost the programming due to dead battery for
      a LONG time or an electrical malfunction etc...

      I have borrowed a friends speedometer (a trusting friend) removed the chip from his, copied the data and put it on mine and it reads perfect now.

      I can repair your speedometer it will have 1851 miles and 317.2 hours on it as that is the only copy I have for the 02-04 Foreman 450ES
      I can also do 99-2000 450ES speedometers (3 indicator lights on top of meter) but will have to double-check check on the mileage/hours copy I have and let you know to see if you want that

      I can also do TRX500FM and FE meters and the older Rancher 350ES meters as well but it has to have the above symptoms and not water damaged-caught on fire, cracked lcd, etc....

      If you have one you want repaired just send to me (just the board with LCD) I can repair it for you for $45.00 or barter if you have a second bad meter for parts
      Shipping would be 4 - $5.00 for First Class with tracking and I will pay return shipping
      I will confirm and send pictures to you as well to show a working completed repair on your display
      If there is heavy water corrosion, rust and rot damage etc.. its probably not repairable but I can try if you want -no fix-no pay
      If you PM me or whatever we can work it out I am easy and like you all I am always fiddling/learning with wheelers
      I think you will be happy and you will have more hair -mine is filling back in...................
      Message me if interested
       
      I am now also doing burned out screen repair if your screen has become unreadable due to UV sunburn damage from the sun
      It will appear burned or melted.
      The cost is 45.00 with same or next day turnaround
      Will do partial barter if you have a second speedometer for parts
      PM me if interested

      Friday evening went riding, rode for a good hour or so everything was fine. I went to take a short ride to the restroom (less than 100 yds away) and all of the sudden everything flickered and then just died out. Accompanying the problem I noticed the killswitch completely locked up. Once daylight hit took the killswitch apart to find it had shorted out and melted the plastic inside. Has anyone else had anything similar to this and if so what did you do to fix the situation? I have a new killswitch on the way to replace the obvious problem but was wondering could there be a bigger issue at hand. We tested with a voltage meter to make sure everything was still getting power from the battery and as far as we could tell it was.
      Any advice/info would be GREATLY appreciated.
      Thanks.
