Actually, I thought my crank bearings were going out cuz i had shavings in my filter, but I hadnt changed my filter in a while evn after a cam install and nothing looked wrong after I tore it down so Im waiting for gaskets to get it back together. And the rears are Pro Wedge II's, but I just got some 4snows on rims for free last night so Imma try those out.

What did you do with your tank?

If you look closely, it's more like "What did you do with your tank, head, and cylinder?"

They usually remove the front brakes, make the thing as light as possible. I've seen drag quads that aren't much more than frame, handle bars, motor, and tires.

So far ive added, as you can see, blaster shocks which are slightly lighter and lower the quad significantly. Removed front brakes, parking brake and all cables/levers attached to it, front light, front fenders, a few tabs here and there, nerf bars, heel gaurds, Have some lightweight drag bars on the way. Soon to come is a +6 swingarm (cant keep front down as it is without hardly any engine work!), ported head, bored carb, bored cylinder, possibly higher compression but still pump gas, and in the far future drag arms, axle, stem, lightened frame, spindle mounts etc. All in all for everything i want..is around 4000$..Which would be all out for my bike, which is alot cheaper than mx.

He never said it was 4000 less than a MX. He said it would cost him about 4000. That is less than a MX. But that's not true. All you really need to make an MX quad is some longer arms. That's 900 or so for top of the line. Shocks are about a 1000 and a rear axle is a few hundred bucks.

...adn thats if you want a top of the line MX quad...I raced mine w/stock shocks and a-arms...I didn't do too bad, now that I have the shocks done I can tell I could have been a lot faster going out of the jumps and cornering....but a lowering link in the back of mine helped tremendously and that I got off ebay for like 30 bucks or so....a whole lot cheaper than the a-arms...

but, anywho, I've never seen a drag quad either Savannah...so don't feel bad, they look pretty bad @$$ :) :)

I'd like to check out one of those races someday...so Bot, they do drags only in Sand?? do they do them on pavement also??

They race everything on pavement. They run sleds on the 1/4 mile strip. The snow mobiles can hit nearly 200 mph on pavement. If you go to the big sand dune spots, that's where you see the people with money. They have these kind of toys.

What i meant by 4k and less than a mx quad is going all out. With 4000$ my bike will be pretty much as drag of a bike as you can possibly make it with as many parts as you can get. The only thing that wont be high dollar is the engine, becuz of course you can get more than 5k just in an engine. But comparing to amx, thats 4k and ive got a top of the line drag bike, to get a top of the line mx bike your going to spend ALOT more than 4k. But to each their own.

If you look at the four stroke war videos on youtube, the majority of the bikes you see with no plastics what so ever are TRXs, and thats what im going for. Pretty much a frame, tires, engine, handlebars. And they fly

      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

      I am trying to find a used OEM cylinder for the above mentioned quad. I was told the current cylinder came from Amazon so I suspect its aftermarket china (made from recycled coat hangers and shopping carts.) Anyway, was looking at the parts list and they have 2 cylinders listed..
      11210-19B82-0F0
      MODEL X/Y
      and..
      11210-19B90-0F0
      MODEL K1/K2

      My engine case is stamped K403 230829 Trying to figure out what model I have. I see I have a K in there but....
      I don't know what the differences are between the cylinders (the first one cost more). Anybody know how to decipher this?
      I only have the engine, I don't have the frame to get the actual VIN.  

      Also, are there any marks on an OEM cylinder to differentiate it from aftermarket?

      My experience for my 98 sportsman. .keep on mind it has the smaller rear rim so my tire choices are not all that great ...
      Best...  Goodyear mud terrain. Long lasting awesome all around great tire.  No longer available of course 
      Worst. ...super swamper vampire . Too soft. Ended up on gravel a few times over a few months of winter snow riding. . Burned down from 1.5 inch paddle to 1 inch in no time. Junk. But if you are able to 100% stay in soft terrain they are insane 
      Current. . Mud lites . Pretty decent.  But I miss my Goodyears

      The tires which I bought on ebay cannot be balanced, it’s out of round.Tried riding and had wobble. 
      It was mounted in shop and they also put it on a rim they had sitting in the shop and same issue to confirm it.
      Are they defective ?
      They have brand new high quality tires for my  old suzuki gsxr750 and want about $600 for two tires.
      Is it worth it to pay that much or buy another set of front rear tires like Hexautoparts which has good reviews on trustpilot.com?
      Any recommendations ?
      Thank you.

      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.
