TRX450R- clutch issue or me or something??

Recommended Posts

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...

How far out does the clutch have to be released before it makes any change or stall? 

Usually a worn out clutch will show by releasing the clutch out about 3/4 way before it starts to grab and is just sloppy over all.

Making the engine stall out and the bike not even trying to move makes me think something is broken off inside the clutch or a spring issue.    Order a gasket in the mean time and take the side cover off the engine and take a look. Post some pics as well and we will see if anything stands out.  Gasket kit on eBay or amazon. 

As far as permission to down load manuals you need 10 active posts in the forum but I can pull a page for you on the manual if need be to get you started on the clutch.  It’s actially easy to get to the 10 posts just on the amount of interesting stuff here people comment on etc.  

btw how does it feel to be back at it with a bike ? Be careful!! I gave this up long ago right before I got married and got back into it a few years back once my kids were old enough to ride and it’s been a blast.  It’s addicting.  

What did you trade for the bike ?

      The clutch cover goes on and fits, but the little L chapped arm that has gear slots is concerning me.  It appears it goes to wear the clutch adjust bolts are on the cover. 
      Is there a specific way to tell how it mounts on the gears in relationship with the basket?
      I don't want to deal it up unless it's right

      1988-2002 Kawasaki Bayou 220 Service Manual
      The Kawasaki Bayou 220 is one of the most common all-terrain vehicles on off-road trails that is geared toward novice riders and families. It’s also one of the smallest and most inexpensive ATVs on the market, with a retail price under $3,500, as of 2010. The Bayou 220 is Kawasaki’s only ATV of its size. The 220’s sibling is the larger Bayou 250 equipped with a 228cc engine.
      Engine
      The Bayou 220’s engine is a 215cc, four-stroke, shaft-driven, air-cooled model. Its bore measures 2.6 inches and the stroke is 2.4 inches. It features a relatively high 9.3:1 compression ratio with fuel delivered through a Mikuni VM24SS carburetor. The electronic ignition is Kawasaki’s DC-CDI. It also features a recoil backup as a starting system. The clutch is an automatic wet multidisc model with power delivered to the wheels via a five-speed transmission, according to ATV Source.
      Chassis
      The steel frame supports a front suspension with single A-arms and twin shock absorbers, with the rear suspension a Quad-Link system with two shocks. Front wheel travel is 4.5 inches, while the rear wheel travel measures at 4.9 inches. Front and rear brakes are drums.
      Size
      The front tire size is AT21X8-9 with the rear tires measuring AT22X10-10. The ATV’s wheelbase is 43.9 inches, with an overall length of 68.7 inches. Ground clearance is 6.1 inches with the seat height measuring 28.7 inches. It weighs 403 lbs. and can tow up to 450 lbs. Its fuel tank can carry 2.6 gallons.
      Basics
      The Kawasaki Bayou 220 is not the fastest ATV on the market, but one reason the Bayou 220 has kept its price low is the lack of amenities. It features a brake light and dual headlamps with high/low beam. There is an auxiliary lighting terminal inside the front cover of the ATV and electrical accessory terminals under the seat. The instrument cluster atop the fuel tank features a fuel gauge, but not much else. There are no speedometer, odometer, hourmeter, tripmeter, high-beam indication or high-temperature light. It does have a reverse/neutral indicator light. The Bayou comes in two colors: hunter green and firecracker red.
      Features
      The front A-arm, twin shock and rear Quad-Link twin-shock suspension system is not a true fully independent system, but it allows for a comfortable ride over rough terrain without employing a complex and expensive, fully independent suspension system. The ATV features front and rear steel cargo racks. The ATV is rider-friendly with a limited adjustable throttle to help novices practice their riding skills without twisting the throttle too far and losing control of the vehicle.

      My byou finally got running after I rebuilt the carb. I took it for a trail ride, and finished by riding her pretty hard up a dirt hill. At the peak of the hill it dropped out of gear, and had to be pushed home. It will still start, and idle. When I apply throttle it revs really high, and no matter what gear it is put into, it will rev high and take a few moments after i release the throttle to wine down.

      I have pulled the clutches out, and it does appear the centrifugal clutch is worn. I took the dremel to it, and tried to get some relief lines back in there.

      Before I reassemble and test, does anyone know if this is even a clutch issue? or possibly transmission/case related.
      also can I make a gasket out of cardboard and Indian head just to test after  cutting grooves in centrifugal clutch?

      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.
