2007 Honda 450 TRX Valve Adjustment

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to check the valves,it just wont run right. I line up the crank mark,then check the cam sprocket mark,cam mark is at 8 o'clock. Is this correct ? Sure does'nt seem right. The owner (my friend) has not bought a S/M ,so I am checking here. Any help ? Thanks.

That sounds about right, there should also be a mark on the cam carrier that the cam gear mark lines up with, and when its all lined up the 2 outer cam lobes should point towards the back of the atv.

No,no marks on carrier. I downloaded a manual and it says nothing about cam gear marks,just crank. But,when at tdc,the sprocket bolts are behind the frame rails ! Only way to get at em is to rotate crank ,then I can get socket on them. Weird ! Honda engineered this ? Does'nt seem right. But I only have .005 clearance on ex. valves,so they gotta be changed

I suppose the TPS could be the problem, the other possibility is that the pilot screw is not adjusted properly, or, when you cleaned the jets, you didn't clean the rest of the carb, and something else is clogged up, probably in the pilot circuit. Any time you clean a carb, you need to take the whole thing completely apart and clean every little nook and cranny. I am guessing this is a TRX 450R? I think that is the only 450 Honda made in '07.

      doesn't idle at times but sometimes when it does as soon as I touch the throttle it just shuts off, what could possibly be the problem? I thank you very much for any help, Thanks.

      I have a 96 Big Bear 350 2 x 4 and I noticed last fall that when I went to start it that the starter would not engage when I pushed the starter button. This spring I charged the battery to make sure that it wasn't the problem but still wouldn't start. I get a buzzing sound from the solenoid when I push the starter button but no sound from the starter at all.  I took the batt. cables loose and cleaned them on the starter and both solenoid posts still nothing. I can start it by pulling the starter rope with the 1st or 2nd pull no problem.  About 10 years ago or so I had the starter armature turned down as the shop said it was getting worn some maybe it is getting to that point again. Anyone have any ideas feel free to jump in.

      I know this tooic has been addressed by many, I’ve looked through many forums and pages. I did not find anything like the problem i have.
      I have a 2007 Kingquad 450. I have a new fully charged battery. When i turn the key, the dash flashes and seems to struggle before getting fully lite. We can hear a small relay near the computer clicking, i think it is the fuel pump relay. When i turn off the engine kill switch and press the starting button relays click and all the power shuts off, i turn the key off, engine kill switch then start over, power is there. Atv will start with pull start, but not elextricly. if i try to use my winch, all power cuts and engine dies. 
       
      Can anyone tell me what it may be? or has anyone fsced an issue like this before?

      I have a 2018 Kodiak 450 EPS that just this past Sunday I ran through a bit of water.
      After the puddle the belt was slipping, so I pulled over and drained the ultramatic housing and the slipping problem went away. This was all in L and everything seemed to work fine. Later when I got on a road, I put it in H, but it still rode like it was in low... i.e. I had to rev it up a lot just to get to 30mph.
      When at home I pulled the ultramatic cover off to inspect, and it looked okay in there. Not much dirt, belt and everything are clean, but when I rev up the engine (with cage in place, of course), the belt doesn't get to the top of the clutch (maxes out about an inch or 1.5" from top of clutch, so maybe it is normal).. I put it back together but same thing... H seems like L still.
      Do you think the clutch needs to be further dissected for cleaning, or could this be an issue with the gear selector?

      I have a 2018 450 and the digital gause has started flashing on an off while driving. The backlit also goes on and off. It is worse when I hit the gas. The battery died a few weeks ago and I jumped it but its been fine until last night. Called the dealer and showed them a vid and they recommend replacing the gauge and its like 600 bucks. The machine has less than 100 hours on it. I would really hate to have to change it out. also the unit sometimes has trouble starting. Any ideas?
