  1. So good news. Took apart the petcock and fuel ran like crazy. Then I remembered when I found this thing it had sat for many years. So I cleaned the gas tank and installed all the other additional parts. I also installed a fuel filter (which I forgot about) to protect my new carb. It was clogged with crap so I took it apart, cleaned it, and viola fuel ran and the bike ran just fine. So I guess I need to run a ! ton of seafoam or equivalent through it.
  2. Oh crap left that out. 2002 TRX450 Foreman es. I looked at the OEM and may still buy one. Heard anything about the Moose carburetors? Not being cheap(or maybe I am) just researching options.
  3. I bought them s a while back and bought a cheap carb to get it running. Now I am having problems with it being starved for fuel. New petcock, new fuel to carb, new carb (cheap off Amazon), new air filter. Drained but did not clean tank. Gas cap and line are clear. I think I wanna try a performance carb that is adjustable if possible or easily rejetted.
  4. Yeah just takes strength but it will stop. Just wanted something a little easier for the wife. She has no hand strength.
  5. New tires brakes and 4x4 working here she is ready to rip.
  6. Ok got new master cylinder installed, bled, and brakes adjusted. It stops ok but not what I expect as an old gear head. I'm going to leave this lone and think about it. On to looking for wheels. Thank you all for the help.
  7. So after getting everything working on my new to me toy I noticed the brakes were not optimum. I bought new shoes for the front and tore them down, cleaned everything, and regressed the drum gasket. After adjusting the breaks and bleeding they still stop like crap. Please tell me my only option isn't disc breaks. Hopefully there is somethi g to get the front brakes working that does not involve retrofitting.
  8. Thought I'd share the fix for me. The switch was failing but would intermittently show continuity. I bought a switch for an 05-06 model and yes the switch is exactly the same but Honda changed the sex of the connectors. Male female, female male. So I have to cut the old end off and solder it onto my new switch and it is fixed with a new switch for 56 dollars instead of the 100 dollars on eBay for a used switch.
  9. And here it is with my daughter giving my grandson a ride today. This is after new oil, diff fluid, seat, rear trunk, fender flares, spark plug, carburetor, air filter, left electrical controls, front diif vent lines, front brake vent lines, and a ton of cleaning.
  10. Thank you all. I think I have nearly everything working and plan on taking it out this weekend to a local motorcycle ranch. Need to read through the prepping tutorial a little better and decide if that is something I wanna take on
  11. I figured as long as the switch will mount I can always splice my existing harness to with some solder and heat shrink.
  12. I ordered the one I turned below that's for an 05-06 Foreman 500. I'm going to try to adapt it over
  13. Hey all so I have run the gauntlet and found the switch is bad. It over travels a little to the left. Basically when you switch it to 4x4 you have to pull the switch back just a little and it will engage. The part number I have is 35400-HN0-671 but it shows to no longer be available. Don't really wanna pay 100 bucks for a used one on eBay.
  14. Just wanted to pop in and introduce myself. Found an old TRX450FE parked in someone's back yard in Utah the last 10 years. Been my garage project the last few weeks.
