Re: WANTED: Any year trx450r motor in good shape

the lower bearing has been upgraded as they go...a few managed to leave the factory with a bad lower bearing...mine was one of them...that is the reason they offered a six month warranty on it...as of right now I have a brand spanking new motor on my bike...thanks to honda...by the way when the bearing does go it really destroys everything in the motor...so if yours does go throw it away and get another saw my bill for the repair it was close to 3K ....

Re: WANTED: Any year trx450r motor in good shape

they are trying to keep it hush hush...so probably not becasue they can not trace teh exact model..but what you could do is take it in and say there is a funny noise coming for the crank case adn pour a little oil into the breather , but you didn't here that from me...
