  1. It's pretty difficult to mix them up. The ex cam has the decompressor on it. I may have to go talk to the Poalris tech on tuesday. Show him what I got.
  2. Note the position of the lobes in this diagram out of the manual. That's the issue. Intake is on the left, just like in my pics above.
  3. Yes I have. But when the cams are out it really doesn't make any difference. As long as the piston is at tdc. If there no cams involved then it doesn't matter. But, that isn't really the issue.
  4. I had to adjust the valves on this 500 (and few other things) and I'm trying to get the cam timing right, and something is really out-of-whack here. It seems anyway. When I line up the dots like the service manual describes, the lobes on the 2 cams are in almost in the same position. According to the manual (and a youtube vid or 2) the lobes should be at aproximatley 10 oclock on the int and 2 oclock on the exhaust. These are nowhere near that. There must be a woodruff type key on the sprockets. I wonder if those are sheared off? Thanks for any input!
  5. Might be something in the key switch, no? The ignition would still have to be "on"when jumping the solenoid.
  6. Anyone know where I can get a free download? I had one a month or so ago on my 'puter but one day it flipped out and I lost it. I gotta put the top end of this 450 together (hopefully today) and I need some info. I've searched and searched this morning, but, I can't find one. Thanks!
  7. Great pics Dra O. Sorry you got hosed. I got one of those too a couple of months ago. Mine, however is from the original owner that bought it new in 85. But, it's stuck in R. It's on my project list to take the engine out and fix the trans. I paid $100 for it. with that said, anyone point me to a service manual for a 2005 trx 450r? I had a pdf on my computer when I fixed the kicker on this thing, but, my computer flipped out one day and I lost it. Now the 450 is back and I'm ready to put the top end back together. I've searched and searched trying to find a free download, but, I got nothing. I can usually find em for just about quad/bike pretty easily.
  8. It just stopped. I got it back together and fired it up. I had a dirt bike that did that outta the blue. I fixed it then it did it again in short order. My buddy suggested to put valve grinding compound on the crankshaft and put the flywheel on and spin it, spin it........ so I did that and it's been good ever since. So, I did the same thing on the 400. We'll see how it goes!
  9. Well the 400 crapped out on Saturday. I took a look at it yesterday and this is what I found. Sheared the key right the f*** off!
  10. Ya, the thing fires up with just a touch of the button! I'm nursing a bum leg that I messed up a couple weeks ago. About 5 of my buddies went riding today, but, I gotta pass until the leg is %100. The weather is freaking perfect too! 😧
  11. I got a battery just like the one that was in it. It's charging now. I drained the engine and the plug is clean. And the oil. Very clean
  12. Hey, I think I'm going to pick up a new battery today for the 400. Now, since this thing with the aftermarket cams doesn't have the auto-decompression, should I look for a battery that has a little bit more cranking power? It looks like the stock battery is 8ah. Is that the number that I need to look at? Thanks, dood. 👊
  13. Ya, that would be an interesting thread. This engine sounds really good. Snappy as hell.
  14. That's all been covered. You gotta read the entire thread, noob. LOL. I'm just messin with ya. I think I got it all sorted out thanks to Frank and some others. 👊
  15. You guessed it. I adjusted the float and it's all good. I rode it around a bit yesterday. Runs pretty damn good! I'm gonna drain the oil from the engine into a nice clean container and see if there is any more debris in it. And, it needs a new a battery. damnit! Freakin $90. 😧
