2007 Honda 400EX Aftermarket Combination?

Recommended Posts

I have a FMF Powerbomb Header, FMF Powercore 4 Exhaust, K&N Filter and a Dyno Jet kit. Powerecore has a decent dent in the side from a wreck, but I dont think it is affecting the inner flow, the cylinder inside seems to be just fine. However, Im getting spanked everywhere except a little on the low end. I even had a factory get me the other day on a straight away race. The only thing he had done was remove the baffling. I thought I had a pretty good combination, what am I dont wrong. i am at a wall and can not get it tuned in. Thanks ahead for any suggestions.

Three things could be a factor here. One, riding style, if someone is getting a better launch and is shifting at a more optimal RPM, he can win in a race against a more powerful machine. Two, rider weight, a heavier rider means more weight that the motor has to move, I think that one explains itself. Third, your machine may not be tuned correctly, you may need to make some tuning adjustments like jetting, vavles, are you running an old plug?

also, if youve flipped the bike recently you might need some carb cleaning! i would suggest you get rid of the fmf package, there are many underdogs making great performance pipes like SUPERTRAPP. might also look into repacking that fmf?

Thanks guys, i didnt flip I was spun and the guy rode up onto my rear tire hitting my exhaust. Either way i did recently completely clean the carb. Im running the suggested Dyno jet for an aftermarket pipe, would I be wasting time to go up one more and see if it helps? Thanks again

No, you would not be wasting your time, jetting off a chart is not the best way to go about it. Besides, you need to take the intake changes into consideration too. A pilot jet change may be in order, or maybe just an adjustment to the pilot screw. Learn to read your plug, it is your best indicator for jetting besides engine performance. I could sit here all day and try to explain to you how to properly jet your machine, but I think you would do better to just use your search engine to do some research. Look up "plug chop" and just try to find as much info on jetting as possible and read up on it.

      Can you believe this thing blew a new head gasket after a few weekend rides? Granted, it was beat on in a mud hole every weekend, but this is a new head gasket on a 400 Kodiak. Bummer.

      got 7 atvs off CL recently for a good price.  one of which is a yamaha warrior.  anyone know where the vin is printed on this bike?  Haha good place to start as I do not know year or size yet.  The former owner says needs exhaust ans and clutch work.  he said it ran fine until the clutch cable broke and then I couldn't get the new cable adjusted right and it would grind gears.  things I see:  clutch cable locked up again, no brakes, carb leaking (green with algae around the bowl and has gelled gas stalagtights on it), aftermarket exhaust melted the airbox so I need something different and a new air box.  I would like the use the current exhaust if I can but I have a feeling its a redneck fix as it looks like there is an ace bandage holding it to the exhaust pipe (its an aftermarket slip-on exhaust), so I'm not sure about that- lets get the bike running first.  also, battery (looks brand new, what a shame) is dead, 0 volts.  Otherwise, bike looks to have not been wrecked, and plastics are ok (it sat outside under a 'tarp' for 3+ years since it was run last).  any tips and advise on where to start first would be awesome as this is my first clutched bike (manual).
      the clutch is my main concern- I've never rode a clutched bike so I dont even know what its supposed to feel like.  lol I'm spoiled on my automatic polaris

      Hello,
      I'm new to the site.  My son and I have decided to bring back our old quad from the dead.  Does anyone know where we can purchase a cylinder kit for it.  I think it's a 1986, but will have to check the VIN to be sure.
      The last time it ran, it was tapping and smoking pretty bad.
      Any help would be appreciated.
      Thanks!

      I have a 425 Magnum that idles great but seems to flood out when I rev it up, sputters, backfires a little somtimes. No water in gas, good fuel filter, carb seems to be fine, good working diaphram. Plug change makes no difference whatsoever.

      Im working on a old 1987 honda 125 4 wheeler in the school shop. It will start by getting pulled by another 4 wheeler but wont start with the pull start or Electric Start. When you pull start it it tries to start but when you try the electric start it just turns over but doesnt even act like it wants to start. The spark plug is dry and it shoots fuel out of the back(air filter side) of the carb. Weve had the carb off twice and it is complety clean. What are some things we can try?

      I bought a Honda 250sx 1986 but the exhaust is broken. Apparently it's not possible to order a new one. I checked to order one on others compagny but there's noting.
      Do you know which exhaust it's possible to install. Is there a company who sold an exaust to fit on my 250sx.
      Sorry for my english
      Thank you

      Hope someone can help with this one.
      We took our 1984 Honda TRX 200 to the shop and they had it for about 2 weeks before they finally called and said that they had cleaned the carb and changed the battery and that it had started up.
      We went and got it and when we got home it would not start so we called them, they said bring it back in, so we did. They called us the next day and said they changed the spark plug, and that it was running. We went and got it again and it ran when we drove it off the truck.
      We parked it for about an hour because we were going to get ready to go on a ride. Well, it wouldnt start again.
      So we called them and they said the last thing they could do was order a new CDI box and put that on. I decided to just buy it myself, so I didnt have to pay them labor again. We put the new one on today and its still not starting.
      Does anyone have any ideas on what we could check to see what in the world is going on with this thing?
      Please and Thank you
