2002 Honda 400EX pulls to the left

Recommended Posts





Like mentioned above..tire pressure or wheel alignment, but also check for a weak shock, frame damage, rear axle misalignment.

* Added year and manufacturer to thread title.

Ok so if it pulls while doing wheelies you eliminate the front end. Mine would always pull to the left because of a slightly bent axle. How it did i have no idea. But i pressed it straight and made it round again. No more pull.

Now your case could be:

Rear tire pressure

Out of round tire (over inflated once by accident)

Axle or carrier bearings siezing

Frame damage

Quite possible. I would remove the rear axle and have a peek at the bearings. If one makes any noise while you spin em replace both

If one bearing is shot it might be causing a drag on the chain. Have you noticed any power loss?

There could be alot of factors but its best to eliminate what is not causing the problem first if your not sure.

Just out of curiosity does it pull to the left when you get a wheelie going?

it may vere do to the chain being on the let side low tire pressure bearing carrier being out the way you are setting on the seat. tread tire wear differnt size tires in height and in wideth

      Do any of you fine folks happen to have a rear swing arm skid plate for a 400EX you would part with at a reasonable price?  New ones are between $60 and a Hundo and that seems a bit steep.  I've kicked around the idea of fabbing one but 2nd hand OEM would be preferable.  Thoughts?  I have a belly skid plate but missing the swing arm skid plate and really don't wanna taco the brake rotor.

      So here is the newest project in the garage, a '99 400EX.  Came with full belly pan, DMC Alien exhaust with dual header, few other little fun additions.  Only down side here really is the stupid Chinese carb, but it is what it is.  Only paid $800 for it and it runs like a scalded dog.  70MPH on the top end, verified with a truck behind it and you have to fight it to keep the front wheels down through 4th.

      Met with this guy to sell the unit. He was looking the unit over while sitting on it and next thing happened he took off on it right in front of me. I had my wife and kids with me and our hearts sank. The rear tires are very easily spotted by having a large yellow W for the brand Bkt

      I was riding my 400ex one day and when i shut it off to put it in the garage i tried to start it put again to drive it into the garge and it wouldnt start.I put a compression tester on it and its like 30 psi with out throttle and 0 psi WITH THROTTLE.
      when i put my finger over the hole it fell likes its pulling my finger in more then its pushing it out 
       
      Has good spark.When i took it into the shop the said it had 1oz of oil in it and a tiny pit of metal shaving(TINY BIT LIKE 30 flakes)
      When i try to pull start (push start/roll start) it made a not normal sound  and wouldnt stay running.
      If my bottom end is blow why would it still turn over fine,
      Are my valves siezed or not working properly 
      or is my timing off causeing valves to not open in correct order with fire 
      PLEASE HELP all help is appreciated

      I own a 2002 Can-Am Quest 650.
      It will start if you massage the throttle a bit and it will continue to run. BUT if you let go of the throttle and try to let it idle it will always die warm or cold.
      It has Non-Oxy premium gas, a new gapped NGK plug, a new carb (as of today) and fresh fluids. After installing the new carb it runs exactly the same.
       
      I only have a few things that I have observed since the new carb:
      The choke still doesn't do anything. It has a good cable and it is hooked up. It on fully off. There is a cable in the top, front of the engine that splits into two connectors. The connected side is in the photo. The other side has the yellow banded section and is not connected. I do not see anything in range of this connector so I don't know if this is normal or not??? The original carb wasn't really dirty or clogged. I'll use it as a spare. I don't see this cable and connectors listed in the Can-Am shop manual. Looking for some help. I want to ride!
