2006 rubicon swap with a trx400 forrman motor

Recommended Posts

i got a 2006 trx500 rubicon with gps, but the top end is completely blown(head, cylinder piston,all broken) i not sure if the trans works anymore? i do have a foreman 400 motor, and was wondering if it is possible to do the swap. the engine design looks similar like engine mount location. the thing i am worried about is how similar are the output shafts? i know the 400 is not powerful, but its better than no quad, or parting out for a few buck$$$.

what are your guys opinion should i attempt it? or is it a pipe dream:aargh:

Well, it sounds to me like the motor has to come out of the quad anyway. I would take it out, and compare everything side by side and make you decision based on what you see. Alot of those Honda utility motors are identical, and they have been generally the same for years. You may even be able to swap parts inside the gearbox to make it match up with your quad. If your 400 motor is sitting there doing nothing, and the other one is junk, I don't see what you have to lose by just checking it out, and seeing how it will work. Good luck to you, whatever you decide.

      Hello from NC ladies and gents. Been lurking here off and on and don't think I have ever posted up.

      I have a 2009 Honda Rubicon. I was having a shifting problem with the Hondamatic. Determined it to be a loose connection on the gray 21 pin connector at the control unit (ECM/PCM). I located a source for the connector and replaced it. This improved the connectors feel greatly, HOWEVER, even though I thought I was careful transferring the wires/pins from the old connector to the new connector, I must have crossed up a couple wires because now the gear position display (switch is new) no longer works. It worked fine before the connector change.

      No matter where I have looked, I cannot find a "pin out" for the ECM connectors. The factory service manual does not show it and I have a connection at a dealer and their service techs don't have the pin out either! I was a Chrysler/Plymouth/ Dodge tech in another life and cant imagine th factory not providing pin out diagrams for diagnostics!

      I am at a loss unless I either replace the harness, OR find someone that can take multiple photos of the wires going into the gray connector so I can compare mine.

      Any help or advice would be appreciated. I will also post up the location I found the connectors if that is allowed, since it seems that they fail with some age.

      Well this is my first time tearing down an ATV. Have done a little work on 2 stroke's in the past, but not much. I'm needing some help. I've got a Bayou that has lost compression. I tested it, and it was like at 40psi. I had already set the timing on it, and it does have spark fuel, etc...
      My question is about the cylinder. To me it looks pretty toasted, but need some help in determining. It is a 2000 Kawasaki Bayou 220. I bought it not running, just to see if I can get it running so it has not ran since I bought it. This question is about the cylinder, and part 2 I have will be about the CAM.
      Any advice / help is greatly appreciated.
      Inside sleeve a line(left line) runs the length that I can feel with my fingernail. The line on the right I can't feel.

       
      Some rust it looks like on these two pictures.
       

      Thanks!

      I am hoping one of you knowledgable people can answer this for me. I have a yfm200 moto 4 engine I want to put in an off road go kart. I would like to mount a sproket where the drive exits the case before the u joint so that I can get rid of drive shaft and make engine bay compact. To do this I would mount engine 90° to axle but would also need to tilt it forward 15° to account for the angle the drive exists rear of casing. Would that be ok? Would oil pump etc still work. Any advice greatly recieved.

      I have a Chinese Hybird 250 or that's what I was told it was. I found 17 numbers on the frame. Will these numbers tell me exactly what it is that I have? (I know that its a 2006 from a plate on the front)

      Hi guys! First post here...bought a Bruin, as mentioned above from a buddy. It had been parked for a few years at his house..unused. Bought it from him at a steal and put a battery in it, new gas, etc...fired right up. It is cutting out now, but I suppose that is just the carb/fuel system needs a good cleaning. Ordered a new carb and hope that gets it going good!
