Red face 400ex compatible parts between years

Would a 2004 400ex transmission fit on a 2007? (I know the 04 does not come with reverse, which anyway I dont even use on my 07)

Is the 04 carb compatible?

Is the chassis (main frame) the same as 07?

I ask because a buddy's 04 400ex engine went south, and he is parting out the atv. The cylinder head is gone, parts left are transmission with crankshaft, rod, starter, chassis(with chassis skid plate), wiring harness, carb (w set of various jets) with wire harness, spindles, rotors, hubs, ball joints, handle bars (with ignition system; brake levers, wires) etc.
Thank you

yea they are interchangeable but only get stuff that doesn't hurt the value of your quad like the extra head and valve cover and jug.

If you put that bottom end on it and still call it an 07 with 04 bottom end. . . if the buyer is anything like me I would walk away just cause the fact that its basicly got a rebuilt title to it.

but everything should fit the same only thing changed really is the plastic and reverse.

Having a back-up tranny would be nice, but I couldn't down grade my 07 with a 04 tranny. Like Josh said, it would kill the value

Not sure if it was a good deal or not, but thought having a spare transmission would not hurt, at least some of the parts.

Got everything for 150.00.

- Transmission (bottom end)

- chassis with attached spindles, hubs, ignition coil, cdi, some wire harness, oil tank, lines, oil cooler.

- chassis skid plate (already on running 400ex) Chassis feels stiffer, much less flex, atv is more responsive.

- carb with no choke, various jets

- two brand new NGK8 spark plugs, and 2 new K&N oil filters

He sent me a pm selling me the sub-chassis with all remaining harness, rear light, attached battery for 40 bucks. Thinking of buying the sub-frame as I need the rear light and would not hurt to have all the harness.

good buy. If anything you can always use the gears from the 04 and keep your reverse if you have too.

Talking about mix and match between years... Went ahead and bought a brake light from a 2001 if not mistaken. When I went to hook up the wiring it had only brown and green while my atv has brown, green and green/ yellow. So I cannot have brake light and tail light at the same time, one cable is missing. Any advice?

You will need the 05-up brake light, brake switch and wiring. Unless you want to run the extra wire??

List of TM FAMAS V1 Gearbox Compatible Parts?

Hello,

Recently I've taken on a new project of rebuilding a TM FAMAS I got for pretty cheap. I'd like to get it up to modern indoor FPS strength (So about 330-350) along with making additional upgrades to ensure that this rifle will last for even longer.

However, I am not versed in the slightest about the V1 mechbox. I am aware that a lot of current aftermarket Compatible Parts cannot be used, but also am aware that certain select parts can be used, so I'm wondering if there is anyone out there that has knowledge as to what parts are compatible and at least semi-compatible with a bit of modification. I've tried searching around here for basically a breakdown regarding this topic, but haven't found anything.

Also, if anyone happens to know anywhere that sells aftermarket body parts, such as the FRIS rail system, that would be great to know.



Thanks.
