This is an on going build : 200 TRX450S"S"  - I call it Hooked Up 

 

 

Yesterday a Moose 22 inch suicide shifter came into my possession and I stuck it on , the longer version fit perfect , going to like this mod as I have one on my 300 and love it 

 

 

It's a 450 engine that has a 500 sleeve , custom piston and rings z , 400 head dog house ported , 34% reduction , EBC clutch pack , HMF muffler , Dyna-Jet carb kit , custom air box and snorkel , 6 inch swing arm stretch , custom shock mount on frame , custom hitch , disc conversion front and rear , hydraulic conversion front and rear , 424 kick out , double cooler / relocated ,  1000 watt  sound system , stick stoppers , custom front bumper plate and fairlead , front light pod raised 7 inches and fitted with a led , led in front fenders , light bar and rear led light pods , winch , 29.5 Outlaws and a few other things 

 

I had a 6 inch lift in this bike and the builder didn't do a good job with the geometry as the 450 diff is not in the center of the frame and is offset , was having problems with the axles jumping out the diff , so took the front lift off and sent it back and lower the rear by changing shocks , thinking of having Jason build me a 6 inch front lift , but then again I am  thinking of  leaving it with the 2 inch lift in it , as it is a top heavy bike to start with and it is a flipper as it has been over on it's side a few times now , it sure looks go up there 

 

the problem I have with this bike right now is getting that some water gets into the crankcase somewhere , twice already the oil has gotten milky when I went over the engine , not a lot of water , just enough to make it milky looking , I have checked vent hoses , changed a few gaskets and o-rings , don't see any oil leaks , and not sure where it is getting in at , first time it happened I changed the rear out put shaft seals as there was some milky oil in the boot of the swing arm , I thought that solved the problem , but it happened again and this time the swing arm boot is clean inside , I am thinking it could be  the seal behind the pull starter , but there is no oil leak from there , you would think if it would let oil , if water could get in ---- I guess the best fix is stay out the water 

 

the first three pics are with a 6 inch front lift , the last 2 are with out the lift and the rear lowered down ,

I’d look at the starter o-ring, not a lot of oil gets thrown up there so it could be letting water in.

I put a another OEM used starter from PSN  on it about a month ago , used the o ring that came on the starter and have never ridden in water since then , so maybe it's solved -----

Here is a pic of the Duracells , they have  2 threaded holes on each terminal which is a solid block , one vertical and one horizontal ---- it is pretty busy in there with lights , fans , sound system and  two wires jump to the second battery in the trunk

That's hot.  Maier did a group buy on the Honda Hoarders page last month and you could order fenders in any color at a discount price.  I thought a BR or 350D in tan would have been awesome.

 

I looked and even with the discount a set of tan fenders for a 350D would have been about $800.  Would be awesome, but I'm poor, so wasn't happening.  LOL

My Big Red 250 fenders will be here tomorrow. Making it White to match the pioneer, trx420 and my truck. Also doing a 18% Jeremy Lee reduction and 350cc big bore kit.

you know I’m more of an old school fella myself. LOL 

 

but that 450 is a high dollar build. Those bikes are super expensive new and then the conversion isn’t cheap either

The bike by itself is $9800, dirt bikes are more expensive than a 4x4 fourwheeler
