  1. You are talking 400 and not 450 correct?
  2. OK I have been trying to figure out what machine will work for a motor swap. I have looked all the diagrams and came up with the part numbers for the frames and the front shaft. It looks like my best bet would be a 1995-2003 Foreman 400. Does anyone know if the 450 Frames are really that much different and would the 400 motor work? Mine is a 1999 Foreman 400. 1995-1998 Foreman 400 Frame 50100-HM7-610 50100-HM7-611 50100-HM7-70096 1999-2003 Foreman 400 Frame 50100-HM7-A10 50100-HM7-A30 50100-HM7-A40 1998-2001 Foreman 450 Frame 50100-HN0-306 50100-HN0-A70 2002-2004 Foreman 450 Frame 50100-HN0-670 1995-1998 Foreman 400 Front Drive Shaft 40400-HM7-A00 1999-2003 Foreman 400 Front Drive Shaft 40400-HM7-A00 1998-2001 Foreman 450 Front Drive Shaft 40400-HN0-A00 2002-2004 Foreman 450 Front Drive Shaft 40400-HN0-670
  3. Well today was productive. What I realized Friday the original harness was still in the machine the previous owner had the hacked up harness hooked up to the front. I guess for testing purposes. The coil was all that was wrong. Once I got it running with the hacked up harness I unplugged all that mess and hooked up the original harness and had it fired up in about 15 minutes. I even let my daughter take it for a quick spin. The motor sounds ok but the machine still needs a ton of parts to bring it back looking good. I am going to keep my eye out for another machine with a blown motor and make a good looking machine. @shadetree I did fix the tread on the other machine. Thanks again for everyone help. Sorry I kept posting the original video. I was doing it from my phone and didn’t realize. More to come with this one.
  4. Thanks jeep. My plan today is to drive it a little up and down the driveway before I say it’s good. Do you know if the 400 motor will fit in the 300 frame? Hello everyone. I have been fighting this POS all week. I’m not expert in wiring but everything is cut and hacked up like crazy. Would I be smarter to just take the engine off and set it beside my working one and hook up to its wiring? if it’s compatible? Here is a video I made tonight. If you can’t tell I’m beyond frustrated. This thing is a 1999 I believe Forman 400 and I have a working 1996 Foreman 400. Does anyone have a spare harness I could rent to test it? None of them are electric shift.
  5. Well she is alive and actually sounds good. I think I am going to look for a 400 or 450 with a blown motor and swap it over. Are all the years from 1996-2003 compatible for an engine swap? If not what do I need to look for? This bike needs way too many parts to try and fix it up and I don’t want to drop that much in it. Also I think I fixed the valve cover gasket on my other 400 with some bigger bolts. Fingers crossed. Hello everyone. I have been fighting this POS all week.

  6. Do they still look wrong? Hello everyone. I have been fighting this POS all week. I’m not expert in wiring but everything is cut and hacked up like crazy.

  7. ok I will check it out. Hello everyone. I have been fighting this POS all week. I’m not expert in wiring but everything is cut and hacked up like crazy.

  8. Thanks Shade Tree that bike looks sweet. I rebuilt one last year for my daughter and learned the hard way on the cheap parts. I'll will let you know what happens.
  9. Shade Tree all I am wanting to do is see if it runs before I tear it down but I did make a bunch of progress tonight. I figured out there are actually 2 harness on the bike for some reason. I have no clue why the previous owner did that. Anyway I got it patched up enough to get it to turn over but I have no spark. I have voltage going to the coil and nothing coming out the other end. I checked the coil with the multimeter and no resistance on either terminal. I didn't buy any of the Chinese junk it all came with the bike. I learned the Chinese junk part lesson on my last build. Anyway I am going to take the coil off the other bike this weekend and see what happens. I am kind of on the fence with this bike do I fix it or use for parts. If the motor cranks right up and sounds good I may fix if it smokes and knocks I am not going to waste my time. More to come this weekend. Everyone be safe with the storms coming through.
  10. I just had it hooked to a 10 amp battery charger. I am just trying to get the Neutral lights to work so I can jump the start button that has been mutilated. Once I get that working I will actually put a battery on it.
  11. My father in law tried Helicoils and he put them in crooked are they are just spinning. If I am going to break it down I want to go back with something I know is going to work. My good machine was a 400 but I put a 450 piston and jug and a 400 head on it. When I rebuilt it I changed the stickers to 450.
  12. Yes. My 400 needs a new head because the vale cover bolts are broken and leaks oil. I don’t want to tear it down if the motor is good. If it’s good I will use as a spare. I have all the parts for this quad.

  14. I know the gear shift position sensor if different. I started tonight with a volt meter trying to get the light to come on when the switch it on and didn’t make it very far. The leads on my volt meter broke. Almost every wire has been hacked on. It’s a mess. I really don’t want to break down my good 1996 just to see if this motor is good. I’ll work on it this weekend when I am fresh and have some patience. After the day I had at work I didn’t need to mess with it. More to come.
  15. Well I am finally getting back to this and thought I could use the wiring Harness from the 1996 but they are not the same from what I can tell. I just want to see if this thing will run. I was able to straight wire the starter and got it to turn over. I am going to try and find he manual on this site. Does anyone have any experience doing this? If the motor is good I am going to use for a spare if it is bad I need the head.
