2004 Honda Foreman 450 - Wiring / Plug

Recommended Posts

hello everyone. I purchased a second hand honda foreman 450. I thought I found a diamond int he rough, but it appears to be a rough diamond. haha. My problem is related to two wires under the right rear fender above the tire (see pic). The wires are cut, and I'm unsure where they go. One wire appears to be yellow with a red stripe, the second appears to be a brownish color....... originally I had a green with red stripe wire, and grey wire cut, but I located those and re-wired them. Any help would be appreciated...... I hope this is related, but the iginition switch (neutral light/lights) don't seem to respond. I can crank the quad by arking the cylanoid, but i assume it has something to do with these wires. any help is appreciated. I just need to know where the wires go.

had the same bike, it is a diamond ... yellow/red wire is a hot wire, is there power to it ?

the brown is probably the neutral/safety switch located on the backside of motor/transmission.

if your lights dont come on (neutral), somehow someone may have tried to bypass the switch. you probably have no spark when you turn it over ?

hi oxidized_black. I haven't checked power to it. I pulled all the fuses as soon as I got it to the house. the "light fuse was blown". I traced the green/red wire over the drivers side by the foot area. From the research i did I think it has something to do with tricking the atv into neutral if it is grounded. I actualy do have spark. The atv will actually crank if you arc cylonoid. (with fuses back in). It's as if the ignition key doesnt allow the lights/neutral to come on, but i assume it has to have power as it will crank. Maybe the ignition has power to all 4 wire? I have a manual, but I'm no electrician.... I just don't know where they go. It could be possible that the tie end with the green/red and brown wire that i already re-wired?

Still tinkering. I pulled the connection to the ignition under gas tank and found I have no power going to ignition......... I started back at battery and noticed I have a connection missing. Can anyone tell me where the other half of this red wire goes. See pic again thanks in advance,

      The tires which I bought on ebay cannot be balanced, it’s out of round.Tried riding and had wobble. 
      It was mounted in shop and they also put it on a rim they had sitting in the shop and same issue to confirm it.
      Are they defective ?
      They have brand new high quality tires for my  old suzuki gsxr750 and want about $600 for two tires.
      Is it worth it to pay that much or buy another set of front rear tires like Hexautoparts which has good reviews on trustpilot.com?
      Any recommendations ?
      Thank you.

      It will go into neutral, 1st, 2nd, and reverse but nothing after 2nd gear. The shifter moves freely going up completely nothing but when you shift down it works. I’m not sure if it’s tranny issue worth messing with or if I should just buy a new one.  Overall besides that the thing runs like new.

      I'm likely going to have to drop the swingarm on a 300FW. Are the lock rings and pivot bolts standard or left handed threads?  I looked at the service manual and it doesn't specify left hand so I"m assuming standard right handed threads.  Not sure though.  The last Yamaha I had apart was regular right handed threads but haven't had a 300 apart before.

      I finally found an awsome app for your phone that shows you on a map all the trails near your location. You can read or add reviews, look at picts...etc

      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?
