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.

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.
