2000 TRX450FM Build/Mods

Don't know yet what to do with this one ,fix it or part it out , it is a 2000 TRX450FW , has a lot of mods in it , the cost I figure at $100 , the bike was purchased for $500 with the tires and rims that are on my Blue 300 in the last pic , I would say $400 is a fair price for those tires and rims , Outlaws and ITP's ------------ So it has a 500 head job , Wiseco piston , 4x2 Wide Open lick out , HMF muffler , carb kit and K+N air cleaner , Warn winch and plate , seat cover , shock covers , floor boards , snorkeled but pipe broke , I have never tried to start it yet , guy told me it ran but didn't sound good after it was freshly rebuilt , maybe tomorrow I will find out

I'd tear it down before ever starting it up and fix it! Then before it went back together I'd trade that HMF exhaust off for a ham sam-mich, a bottled cold one, and maybe a soft cookie! :-)

Any chance of a photo of the winch plate and mounting if it’s easily accessible?

Sure Sam I can do that , from what I remember I have at least 3 different design winch plates for a 450 , two look factory made , one looks custom made , I never paid much attention to whats on the project 450 , ithas a Warn , don't know if it even works yet > remember beside this 450 , I have 4 - 450 parts bikes , 2 are ES and 2 are foot shift , and seen a few winch plates in the pile of parts and they are all differently made , I actually had another yellow 450 for parts and couldn't fit it on the trailer when I picked up the pile and never did go back 75 miles each way to get it , sure it is gone by now ------ should have enough parts to build one good one

Cool, thanks buddy.
I think you should build a good one from the 4 you have, see what parts you have left and build another to sell on, or even sell both.

Thanks for that. So in the first picture, there are two U bolts, one either side, holding the plate to the main frame down tubes and just after the bend in the plate are those two tabs (one either side) that fasten with the same bolt that hold the bumper to the frame?

Nope, they've never given me a reason to like them. The way I see it, exhaust considerations should come near last in a motor build, else it can't possibly work with the design. I see them as expensive noise-makers and I'm probably too old to change... :-)
