Need engine for 2004 Arctic Cat 500 TBX

Recommended Posts

I need a engine for a 04 500 tbx. My dads quad was really messed up by a local dealer they cracked the engine cases. I have now taken them to court got some coin from them and want to find a wrecked quad or junk yard that has a motor. Because a tear down part by part would cost way to much. Let me know what sourses you all have.

Thanks cway

No I still have not found a engine but I have not been looking that hard. I keep watching e-bay and the salvage yards but nothing yet.

I'm almost 100% positive it is a Suzuki engine.

Yes it is a Suzuki Motor I know that I just don't know if the two will interchange. After looking I have not found any Suzuki 500's either. I am looking into putting a 650 H1 in it, I have to change the wire harness, Head pipe, and cdi for starters but it would give it more balls.

Motor mounts are easily moved, new mounts are often the easiest part of a motor swap. Depending on how different the motors are, clearances and intake/exhaust plumbing are the most difficult part IMO. Are the 650 and 500 motors based on the same design? If so, the bottom end may bolt in the same, it may just be the top end that needs modification.

i was looking at the diagrams of both ur 500 and the 650 h1 and their very similar especial the mounts.. the only thing that was really noticeable was the exhaust and the top left side engine brackets... besides that their very similar.. and the intake as well is pretty similar the only thing was the exhaust pipe shield on the 650 which the 500 did not have

Well then, that might be a pretty easy swap, I guess that makes your chances of finding a motor a bit better as well.

I have heard that the suzuki 500 will work,and they look like it will. I have a great running bike i'm thinking of parting out on ebay,its just that there hasn't been enough sold on there recently,and i dont want to put everything on there for nothing.but if i could guarantee to sell the engine,i would consider it.

      So i was riding the other day and my quad randomly shut off. It started back up and ran completely fine for a little while and then it started idling terribly.
      I cleaned the carb and changed all the jets and everything except the float due to the rebuild kit not coming with one and it actually runs worse then it did before.
      It will run and idle decent now but when I give it gas it dies.
      Does anybody know what could be wrong?
      I also changed the spark plug and air filter along with the oil and oil filter.
