Yep same graphics except they cut and removed the front number plate and changed the color of everything. Even looking closer the shocks look like stock trx450r shocks and both have had a triple rate kit and im sure re-valved.

I’m talking to the owner that used to race it. He said that guy talking about the electric start and the valves sounds sketch but he loved that quad. He said it was his “practice bike” haha. He said all it’ll need is some freshening up. He bought Adam McGill’s practice bike. So that’s pretty cool.

So from what I understand. When he had the bike. It was in the best shape. He built it from the ground up. I’m gonna try to get it for 3k or less. I think I can do it because I don’t even know for sure if it runs, it’s been raced, it needs about 1k put in it for updating things and freshening up, and I have to fix whatever is wrong with it lol

So in your opinion what do you think could be the problem? He says it won’t start with the button because the valves aren’t adjusted but it will roll start. I’m assuming what he’s saying is it’s turning over but won’t fire. I think it sounds more like timing to me. Surely a 450r chain didn’t stretch and let the cam jump on it. The original owner said it sounds pretty sketch.

That sounds about right . When the intake valves get tight (need to be reshimmed) the engine doesnt turn over fast enough to start with the valves being too tight. It wont have enough compression to start. But when u push or pull start it it spins over alot faster and can start. Very common problem and is easy to fix. Well if u are mechanically enclined

So if I go look at it and we roll start it to make sure it runs is that ok? Like will it hurt to start it just for a second to make sure it runs?

Could be a bad starter clutch. That would be my only concern. I have heard of 450s not starting when valves get to tight. And since 450s head design is for most power and reliability out the door they sink valves in at a very fast rate. Requiring valve service alot and also requiring head machining alot more.
