2003 Honda 400EX suspension

Recommended Posts

What suspension setup would you recommend for long hours and fast trail riding. The stock suspension seems too unresponsive to be that hard of a ride.

Replace the factory shocks or just get new ones. Not looking to spend 500 per shock nor will I ever run GNCC or MX

Bolt on setup? Do you know what difference it made?

Is it more adjustabilty?

I think the R shock is 1/2" longer than the ex :biggrin: But as he put it the ex shock was like riding a broom stick :no: the R shock is a huge improvement :yes: and any 2nd grader could install it !

Ive read quite a few posts about the rear stock shock being harsh. Most replies were to get aftermarket abc or xyz brands.

What year 450? Did he use all three shocks?

Because they are just as good as Works or factory valved Elka's. And they are cheaper than Elkas also.

No just the fronts ! The rear shock is pretty soft to begin with !! YZF shocks are supposed to be pretty sweet ! :yes:

I meant the 400ex shock is a little harsh.

What year 450r should I use? Did all years use the same shocks?

      Suspension Question? Shocks for 250X
      I bought the wife a 2019 honda 250X,it does not have adjustable shocks,I'm thinking of maybe getting one  as well,for her she does not notice it as much as I  do but the ride is not as good as my 1991 250X with adjustable shocks.
      So I'm looking at maybe getting new shocks if I get one for myself,I find these.

      I have a 2003 LTZ 400 that i bought a few days ago. The quad was running fine until last night. I let my brother ride it down the street and back and i didnt notice anything etong with bike. Then my neighbors friend came over and said "can i ride it?" I said "sure" so he ripped it down the road all fine and when he got back it died right in front of us. My brother said it was dieing on him also. He also said that he wasnt using the clutch to shift. I told him he was an idiot. Im throwing that in there incase that caused a problem as well. But today i go to check it to make sure its getting fuel which it is and replaced the spark plug incase it wasnt getting spark but it is. So i started it and it was having a problem starting then i got started and was reving at idle high. So i took it around the block and it died on me a little bit down, so i try to restart it and it started so i kicked it into 1st and it kinda launched on me and started going with the clutch all the way in. Then it died right after and wasnt running right during that process and was idleing all over the place and just died and now i cant get it started it again. Before it would start without the choke or priming it. It would start real quick now i cant figure if it needs to be rejetted or something else. Air filter looks clean also. But any help would be gratelly appreciated!

      Hi Folks;
      Has anybody on here installed a winch on a 2003 Magnum 2x4? I am using a Cycle Country adapter plate (only one I could find), but am having a bit of trouble getting it all to fit properly, and am looking for someone that may have done this install and/or may have some pics of the installation.
      Thanks!

      Hello, well back to where I was last year with this carb. Took my 250 to the mountains for the first time this year and blue smoke, too much gas again. I can't believe that this carb gives me this much trouble. Seems like the choke is stuck but the cable moves freely. Anyone else ever experience this issue? Do you think a new choke cable would maybe resolve this?http://www.quadcrazy.com/atvforum/images/smilies/arghh.gif
      OK it was the choke. Put on all new cable and plunger and she is running 100% again. So now the question is, is the carb getting worn out where the plunger needle goes in the small hole and when I use the choke the needle end doesn't get lined back up with the hole?? We'll see how it runs and now that I know what the issue is I can always pull the choke plunger out and reinstall if I start having this issue again.
