for what i know, it has an FMF muffler, not sure which, its loud though.

stage one hotcams

a k&n no airbox intake

razrs ALL AROUND [still have GREAT tread]

fullbore plastic

the only problem is it makes a ticking sound when it idles..we think it needs a valve adjustment.

let the new project begin! [that will be another thread, since i am an organizing freak.]

sorry for the lack of angles. its packed in my garage and my camera batterys were dead.

IM SO HAPPY :biggrin::biggrin::biggrin::biggrin::biggrin:

I would keep it, order an end cap for it. Sand it down lightly(very fine paper) and use the paint they use on BBQ grills.

i think im gonna get a newer CDI and a new plug. that should help it right?

It would help it out but that is the nature of the beast. Hondas don't like the cold. Re you leaving the throttle closed while you are starting? That is Electric start right?

Before you go buying alot of parts, check a few simple things. Pull the carb and clean it . Check the jets and make sure they're clean. I'd assume it's been jeted with a K&N and a pipe, but if the pilot isn't a 42, get one. That'll help with the cold start. Pull the petcock on the tank and clean that as well. There's a little screen that will clog. The ticking is normal. Mine has done it since it was new. If it's real bad, you may need to adjust your valves. Enjoy your new ride! The 400ex is a great machine.

idk, mine will crank and crank and crank, but nothing, i have tried the choke, tried pumping the throttle, i tried holding it wide open while trying to start. sometimes it will turn over, it will run for a little bit, then sputter and die

hey wheeler, the throttle thingy, when its pointing up is it on? or down?

that might be it, no gas lol.

it sucks it doesnt have a backup kick..

Glad you got it TB. It looks pretty sweet!!!

thanks bro!

Yes, up and down is open. Do NOT try and start it with the throttle open. You will flood it. Try to push start it in 2nd gear. Pump the throttle about 10 times then try it with the choke open.

Bots right, dont hold it wide open, i only hold mine open a little bit, enough to make it rev just a tad....I think he's also right...try to pop start it and let it run for a little bit.

      A precious little girl walks into a PetSmart store and asks, in the sweetest little lisp, between two missing teeth,
      "Excuthe me, mithter, do you keep widdle wabbits?"
      As the shopkeeper's heart melts, he gets down on his knees so that he's on her level and asks,
      "Do you want a widdle white wabbit,or a thoft and fuwwy, bwack wabbit, or maybe one like that cute widdle bwown wabbit over there?"
      She, in turn, blushes, rocks on her heels, puts her hands on her knees, leans forward and says, in a tiny quiet voice,
      "I don't think my python weally gives a thit."

      The saga of the fan continues.
      The Pin attempt in the fan shaft failed.  I then moved on to trying to weld the fan hub to the fan shaft.  I took it for a run the weld broke.  Now it was truly F'ed.  To recap the dealer price, they want $400 + CND for a replacement fan assembly.
      I searched all sorts of after market places and no one carried one.  Ebay had some used ones but they were $120 USD + Conversion rate for something as old as what I have.  I went to Amazon and eventually settled on this.
       
      amazon link
       
      What I found... and was amazed... was that the fan mounted to the Suzuki fan assembly bracket.  I was prepared to manufacture my own mount conversions...  It also came with "Harpoon mounts" (nylon zip tie like things that go straight through the rad.   Anyways it mounted to the original bracket. It fit perfectly.  Cut the electrical plug off replaced it with the Suzuki... all good.  Let the quad heat up, thermo coupler kicked in the fan circuit, polarity was right... all was good....  Fan is under the circuit fuse rating.  
       
      so I finally have a solid fan solution.  $34 CND vs $400+ CND
