Will a 2005 400EX engine work on my 2002 400EX frame?

Recommended Posts

I am in desperate need of an engine, i found a 2005 400EX engine with reverse,

I was wondering if it would fit on my 2002 400EX frame, and the wirng and everything hook up, without modifying anything,

All help is appreciated, thanks

I believe it would be the same, I have a 2000 model which is the same as the '02s and I have been looking for an 05 or newer motor/bottem end to put in mine so I have reverse.

Stoopidbot would definitely know for sure I bet...he'll probably check in here tomorrow. :)

I'm going to say that you may have to do some very minor modifications. I'm sure the engine would fit fine as far as mounts, I'm not sure if all the wiring coneectors will be the same. Just curious, how do you put a 400EX in reverse? Is it with the shift lever or is it on the bars? I've never been on a 400 w/ reverse.

i think you have to pull a trigger like mechanism under the right side of the fuel tank,

but if worst came to worst, I guess I could forget reverse and remove the cable, I could also buy a 2005 wiring harness, what are your thoughts?

thanks, kevin t.

That sounds like something that would be easy to rig up a mount for. I was just going to say that if it was on the bars you would also have to get a new perch setup. I personally think it would be a fairly easy conversion. I do not know of any changes in the frame between the 2 years.

to put it in reverse you have to be in 1st gear, pull in the clutch, twist the knob on the right side of the front fender and push down on the shifter below first gear...

does that help?

Thats correct. It shouldn't be too hard to mount the knob assy on an older style fender.

Are you interested in selling it?

      I have a 2005 Suzuki Vinson 500cc automatic 4X4. I can only shift it in to park & High gear, it will not go in low or reverse, what's the issue & the fix?

      I wanted to share an experience and a fix.
      Headed out was following a pole line, was looking for a cross track that may take me to this speckle trout looking spot on a creek.  All paths and semi paths... failed.  Second objective was to reach a speckle trout lake that has been recently stocked... followed 1 trail to dead end, followed second trail to dead end.... while investigating options on foot and the quad idling it died.
       
      It wouldn't start.  eventually it did... and when it did … it was essentially a pinned idle.  activating the throttle did seem to speed it up but it wouldn't knock out of the racing idle.  couldn't put it in gear at that idle speed.  got towed out.
      when I first got the quad, I ran it off a trail and buried it pretty good in the soft snow... eventually winched out.  It wouldn't start.  eventually did and it was fast idling.  not as fast as this last time. but still fast.  it eventually seemed to settle and I got it in gear and by the time I was back to the truck was acting ok.  chalked it up to the bike being at a bad angle in the snow.
      My investigation last year lead to the throttle position sensor TPS.  how to jumper the diag block to see the sensor position on the display,.  I focused on this nearly sure it was a detuned sensor or broken sensor again this time.
       
      I tore down the front plastic and stuck my head into the TPS area to see what I could see.  What I found was that the throttle body assembly had actually come out of the mounting area (not sure what it is called).  the ring clamp was loose I could move it easily.  Hopeful, I tore down the air intake assembly above it (air filter...etc) removed a sensor clip and a hose.
      I backed off the clamp some more and was able to reseat the throttle body assembly.  put some blue lock tite on the clamp screw.  When I was cleaning off the air intake assembly to ensure I dropped nothing down the intake, I noticed the underside of the air intake "box" also had a clamp.  this screw was completely missing.
      I went to the hardware store, bought a metric replacement (brought clamp with me), seated the assembly, settled the clamp blue lock tite that as well... 
       
      quad fired right up, idled normal, idled up without hesitation and dropped right back off.  Cost of solution $3.87 CND for a pack of 5 metric screws.  moral of my story was don't assume an idle issue is a throttle position sensor problem... there are a number of other factors including air pressure, which I believe was my issue.

      I own a 2002 Can-Am Quest 650.
      It will start if you massage the throttle a bit and it will continue to run. BUT if you let go of the throttle and try to let it idle it will always die warm or cold.
      It has Non-Oxy premium gas, a new gapped NGK plug, a new carb (as of today) and fresh fluids. After installing the new carb it runs exactly the same.
       
      I only have a few things that I have observed since the new carb:
      The choke still doesn't do anything. It has a good cable and it is hooked up. It on fully off. There is a cable in the top, front of the engine that splits into two connectors. The connected side is in the photo. The other side has the yellow banded section and is not connected. I do not see anything in range of this connector so I don't know if this is normal or not??? The original carb wasn't really dirty or clogged. I'll use it as a spare. I don't see this cable and connectors listed in the Can-Am shop manual. Looking for some help. I want to ride!
