crf450 08 engine parts in 04 cases? Carnage pics enclosed!

Recommended Posts

So I bought an 04 450 and rode it for 20 minutes when all hell broke loose, and left me with an engine that is basically junk. The only thing that is any good is the cases. a buddy of mine has a motor from an 08 that was recently rebuilt, but the case is busted. So I am wondering if I can put the 08 parts in my 04 cases. I would have to use everything out of the 08 motor. Will it work?:busted:

hmmph... you may want to check part numbers of parts from 04 compared to 08. In particular the transmission main and countershaft. Crank is different but dimensionally the same. Head main parts are all the same.

The cylinder is different but you can make it work by grinding a notch in the skirt of the 08 cylinder, in line with the oil squirter.

You will need to keep your ignition (stator) (unless you have a wire harness and a CDI box)

Was planning on re-using my transmission. Only parts I need to harvest from the 08 would be crank, cylinder, and head.
