Honda 2008 TRX450R Won't Start

Recommended Posts

I replaced the main , pilot and starter jets and it will not start , it wants to try and start , this is a fuel issue I think , what part of the carburetor might be plugged up if it will not start , any ideas

You have to take the carburetor off of the bike and completely tear it down. You will need a small piece of wire to clean every small port on the carburetor as well as a small can of air to blow out the carburetor ports while your cleaning it.   The part of the carburetor that’s probably jammed up is the float and fill needle inside the bowl. Not allowing fuel to get into the engine. Make sure you work on a clean surface and blow every small oraface out of the carburetor.  

There is also a fuel air mixture screw on the carburetor before you take that out it would be best to count how many turns it is set at from a snug tight position so you put it right back where it was or close to it when your done.

      Ok so just picked up an 02 ds 650 and the guy said he couldn't get it to start. He had a shop put new shims in it and I had them checked and they were ok now things I've done is new plugs even though guy had just put new plugs in it.. got new carb 42mm just like the one that was on it.. bought new intake manifold because the one that was on it someone got way to tweaked out and ported the shit out of it excuse my language but yeah so installed new intake manifold and it just won't start like its not getting enough fuel.  Timing seems to be right it does fire every now and again but just barely.. did a compression test today and it was at 90psi.. i know thats low but don't know where I'm losing compression.. valves we at .06 and .07 when checked im lost ive tried everything I know and can't figure it out

      Hey all. I got a stripped hub on this 450r ,and I ordered some new oem spec hubs, but they don't fit on the splines. I can't find and I.D or a name at all on the axle. The splines measure right around 28 mm. They're a good bit bigger than the stock ones. I even tried the hub from a 700 Raptor, but no-go.

      I Hey guys, I just picked up a TRX450R in a trade.  I think it has a bad clutch, but my experience with a  Manual clutch on a quad is very limited...  Don't get me wrong, I can drive a manual car and have rode dirt bikes in the past... It's been a good minute on a dirt bike though.
       
      If I give it some throttle and slowly let out the clutch it seems to catch hard and stall out.  Even with a decent amount of throttle.
       
      Any ideas? Could it be adjustment on the clutch in not the clutch itself?
       
      I plan to upload a link to video when I can. I'm not sure how permissions go on this forum and I may need approval 1st...
