    ‘00 trx400ex, it’s air cooled. Bike gets hot after about 8-10 minutes of riding. Doesn’t matter if it’s a light ride or full throttle. No oil leaks (anymore lol) but sometimes it does gets so hot oil starts pushing up out of the head. Can’t figure out why it’s over heating

    Does anyone have recommendations on what main jet and pilot jet I should use on my 05 400ex. This is my first quad and doing research on what other people are running on their pilot and main jet is confusing to me due to people running a range from 170 to 185. It is running 416 big bore kit...

    So over the winter I replaced the valve seals and top end of my 400ex because it was burning a lot of oil and smoking. It now has a 11:1 compression piston. It’s running good now for the most part but has a tick. I replaced the timing chain hoping it was the problem but still ticks and tensioner...

    TL;DR: 400ex runs for a little, maybe a minute or so and then stops dead like the engine has locked up. You can (with some force) get it unlocked by turning it over by hand and then it seems to turn over fine. If you start it, the whole process repeats. I have a 400ex that I'm trying to get...

    Hi I have a 400ex that I recently put a 2005 450r carb on. It runs good awesome throttle response and power but I have one problem. At wide open throttle it pulls hard almost all the way to the rev limiter but when it's almost there it dies and is really hard to start again. It runs good for...

    Hello all, I am new to owning and working on Honda ATVs. I recently purchased a 2001 400 EX. The previous owner lost the keys and instead of just ordering a new one he spliced the wires together. I did verify it was not stolen via getting the title from him. Anyway, I ordered the new ignition...

    My 07 Trx400ex cannot start in neutral without the clutch being pulled. The fuses are good, there are these 2 unconnected wires though. They say N and R for what I assume Neutral and Reverse but I couldn’t find the other end that wasn’t connected. Do these connectors not plug in any where. If...

    I have a 2002 400ex bored to 416 with stage 2 hotcam, ECO Big Gun exhaust, stock carb, and stock intake. I was wondering if I should get bigger jets and open my intake some more. It runs good now, a little rich but I was looking for more power if I could. I don’t have much knowledge on intake...

    Hi, I'm new to the forums. I just recently traded my foreman for a trx400ex. I have a ton of experience with quads and any with with engines, but never a sport quad. The problem I'm having is the quad runs flawless for a while, but when I do a wheelie in 2nd and sometimes 3rd, it starts to...

    How’s it going fellas? So I have an 02 400ex and last Saturday about four hours into riding I noticed that when I was at WOT it wouldn’t really come up in the RPM and seemed to stay steady at roughly 3-5k RPM. It happened randomly and I can’t figure out why. Has this happened to anyone else...

    I only trail ride and I’m looking to get a little more juice out of the 400ex on a bit of a budget, I was thinking of leaving it a stock bore, I have a big gun eco r slip on, and stock everything else, I was thinking of throwing a new stock bore piston in it just to freshen it up for the season...

    I picked up a 2001 400ex a while ago and I was told it was completely stock, I put a big gun muffler on it and rejetted it. Recently it started to burn some oil so I decided to take it apart to rebuild it and I found out it had a Webcam 450/451 cam in it and everything else is stock I was...

    Hello all. New person here. I have a 2008 400ex that I recently put an hmf slip on exhaust on along with a uni air filter and removed the airbox lid and snorkel. Hmf recommended a 42 pilot jet and 175-180 main jet with this set up. After installing a 42 pilot and 180 main I adjusted the mixture...

    My husband and I have 400ex that we bought a few months ago and it wants to bog down whenever you go to get on the throttle. It idles fine, he has replaced the Jets, then bought a new carburator all together, CDI Box, coils, all he can think of, and it still doing the same thing. It runs fine...
