The manual is free download from this site. I think kentco has the link in his signature. I downloaded one for my 450s a while back.

I put the inspection camera down into the engine and never found anything , drained the oil . then flushed a couple of gallons of diesel thru it into a clean container and changed the filter , very clean , I doubt it has been sunk , really looks like some one put a piston that is marked standard into the cylinder that is worn or has been bored .010 , boxed up the jug , talked with G+H , mailing it tomorrow , $188 gets the boring , Shindy piston , rings , all gaskets and return shipping-------------

Can't beat G&H.. lol I got one I'm sending them tomorrow as well..

Honestly I have seen many atv engine taken apart. And the 450 seems to be the easiest by far. Could easily have top end apart in less then an hour.
Their good four wheelers all around. Like it's been said the 300's big brother

Honda fourtrax 300 4x4
Ole"'mighty big red
Ss108 12' wheels
23-8-12 front and 23-10-12 rear upgrading to 25/26
2" spring lift and brackets on back
Foot rests and 3rd fog light(mounting on steering wheel.)

Does any know the offset of the stock rims of this 2002 TRX450FM ? --------------right now the bike has after market rusted chromed rims with 27's Black Water tires , I like the tires but the rims are very deep dish , it is a little hard to measure but it looks like 10 inch wide rear rims with an offset of 7 inches out and 3 in , they stick out pass the fenders which I don't like for reasons of getting dirty unnecessarily and hitting trees on the tight trails ------ I am think maybe a 8 inch wide rim with a 4x4 offset would work but would like to know what is the stock offset ?

Just measured an OEM front 6" rim.
Front: 4 1/2" + 1 1/2"

Didn't get a measurement for the OEM rear 7 1/2" rim. Sorry!

Just ordered Kenda Bearclaw EVO's yesterday ..... 26x9x11 fronts, and 26x11x12 rears. These will be mounted on the OEM 6" and 7 1/2" rims.
Like you, I don't feel the need to get dirty unnecessarily ..... therefore, OEM rims.
Good luck!

Thanks, Mac' .. from your measurements , just as I thought my front are the wrong offset rims also , I also just noticed the rear width is 3 or more inches wider than the front width , I would like them to be even -------- I was going to get a set of some sporty alum. rims , and now I am thinking of just going with some used stock O.E.M. steel rims and a fresh paint job , Plain Jane

Can't say how much I am pleased with G+H , the box has arriv'in , they bored it .025 and it had a standard piston in it , the walls were not scared , I think the P.O. stuck a new piston in a cylinder that was already bored for it to be that far off and show no signs of wear , $173 and the $13 it cost me to ship it to them , $186 total this time around for the bore , hone , piston rings and complete upper gasket set -------- but I didn't do my home work , I should have had every thing cleaned up and ready to go , just spent an hour cleaning the head and still have to change the seals and lap the valves , valves held the solvent test which is a good thing , dam dirt packed in the fins is a project , sure miss the bead blaster cabinet that went south on me
