    Honda WHICH power up for my TRX450R ?

    Right then, i do a lot of desert riding (Saudi Arabia im a Brit by the way so dont shout at me ) i think you American folk call it Baja?? I want to upgrade the power on my virgin TRX450R ( once i get it running right again!!) so which gear do i go for ????? Is it worth putting the HRC power up kit on her when all i do is desert/dune/climbs ??? I dont race cos i would get bored racing myself!!! Only TRX450R here boo hoo Which exhaust system would be best?? Yoshi?? Pulse Charger etc?? Any help guys would be great. And remember guys i'm a Brit so be nice and treat me gentle !!!!!! Thanx

    Honda Poor Running 2005 TRX450R

    Can someone please help help help ????? im off the road and its hurting !!!!!!!!!! My TRX450R has developed a running problem,she starts fine but sounds a bit ruff and when going up the gears she just dies big time! Even in neutral when revving she just dies out on me. Idle speed is fine. I have just done a recent service on her, as in oil change and good clean n tidy up,but since putting her back together she has developed this problem. Ive changed the fuel,ive cleaned the carb,the jets are clean and free flowing(as far as i can tell ) but to no avail, she still dies at MID to HIGH revs!!!!! I'm convinced it's a fuel/air problem but who knows ????? I didnt disturb anything when i serviced her and she was running fine before hand Can anyone out there help get me n my quad back into the desert PLEASEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE ??????????????????? Any sensible suggestions greatly needed and appreciated thanks folks Mario (spikkyboy )
