  1. Im trying to figure out how its not running on the rev limiter? Unless you did one of those cdi boxes that removes the limiter. Wide open throttle for 2miles would be banging the limiter the whole entire way. I will say from experiance the 400ex motor built right will handle anything. Stock form with out a limiter the valves are floating hard and it wont last very long before your pulling a piston with a valve sticking out of it from the engine. My .02
  2. Heck yeah buddy! I have zero idea about 3D printing aswell. Sounds like a blast to learn it! Im sure with your computer ability you will be making all sorts of crazy things in no time!
  3. Man when you start talking multiple gears on one shaft i am lost. I will say if you go smaller on the engine it increases torque and lowers top speed. Its the opposite on the axle. The bigger you go on the axle the more torque and less top speed. Changing on the axle also changes your mechanical advantage over the tires. Which will adjust your traction as it will want to spin the tires easier. Where changing the gear on the engine side it isnt as noticable.
  4. Welcome to the forums! Seems someone beat me to moving your thread to the proper section. Im sure someone will be along to help you shortly. Im a sport quad guy so my utility quad knowledge is limited.
  5. The xr650 is designed very similar to the xr400. Which is the same engine as the 400ex. I would bet the ticking is the auto decompression. The reason its in the first 20 seconds is it works on engine rpm. Uses centripital force to drop into its groove and stop ticking. I would bet if you rev it and hold the idle high for a few seconds you would hear a click and it would stop. That would confirm it 100%
  6. I agree 100% about the drill bits. I have a good machinist set
  7. I guess i just know when to back out the tap to clear the shavings? I have never in my life come even close to breaking a tap off in a hole? If the tool is used correctly it should take almost no force to tap any hole. And by correctly i mean use the size drill bit that is stamped on the tap itself. Anyone using the wrong size drill bit cant blame the tool for breaking. Honestly the machinist drill bit set is more important than the tap and die set. IMO
  8. I will tell you bud. I have an old chraftsman standard set. A pittsburgh metric set from harbor freight. And my buddy has a snap-on set in his tool box in my garage i can use anytime. If you picked a few pieces out of each set and switched them around there is no way you could ever tell. They are all 100% identical. And unless your using them everyday all day long the chances of you breaking one or having any problems is slim to none. 2 if them have a lifetime guarantee on them. The chraftsman kit is atleast 30 years old. None of them have a broken piece anywhere in them.
  9. Sorry to hear of your familys loss. Happy birthday to your daughter! We share a birthday. Turned 31 today......just another day at this age. But we did have the nicest weather we have seen all year so far! Made working outside nice atleast. Take care Jeep! And take as much time away as you need bud!
  10. Yeah you gotta put it in and ride it just like slime. The only difference is starch drys fast when it get enough oxygen. So it will roll around until it finds the gap and then when it starts to seep out the hole it hardens and seals. Its is mostly used with sand dunes riders. And works really good on beadlock wheels. But it will work on non-beadlocks aswell. I have it in all 8 of my tires. My mx and my xc tires. All are beadlock but the mx fronts. Before sta-flo i had 3 tires that would air down very slowly. 2 of them were my mx tires that sit off the quad most of the time. I just checked them after sitting in a stack all winter and none of them lost even 1 psi. All the xc tires on my quad are the same way. Not even a single psi lost sitting all winter.
  11. I use sta-flo liquid starch. Put it in just like slime. Can get it at walmart dirt cheap. And there is zero mess when removing a tire like slime.
  12. This is why when i was buying and selling quads we had rules we would follow to keep everyone safe. Never go alone. Always be packing. Talk to the person on the phone not just text. And always get the vin# and run it before going anywhere. Also we had certain places we would avoid as a whole. And we absolutely never took a quad anywhere to sell. They always come to you period! Cash is in your hand or they dont test ride. I would ride it for them if they asked. And one time we even had my buddy sit around the corner and pull in after they pulled in the driveway and block there vehicle in. Just incase they tried to take off on the quad. That was before we did the cash in hand rule. Scary world! But never be the guy that brought a knife to a gun fight!
  13. Yeah those i just snug down. Very lightly. Ever since i had one get stuck and i had to destroy it to get it off. LoL
