Welcome to the site, is this a 450R? The sport quad?

If it's a 450R, then this is how.

Most 4-wheeler problems are caused by a loose nut connecting the handlebars and the seat!!

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

That is for an 04-05 model. Everything is the same minus the drain bolt is on the other side. That one shows the drain under the foot brake, the 06+ models the drain for the tranny is under the shifter/front sprocket. Look down towards the bottom frame rail. All the bolts look the same except the one that you actually remove to drain the oil.

Yeah, your correct Red, that is for the '04-'05 model. That's the only manual I have for the 450R.

There are a few differences but the 04-05 manual will work for most things. The main differences are obviously the tranny drain, the early models has an external oil cooler, and the early models have the same carb style as the 400EX and 06+ has the same carb as the CRF450.
