Hi, im pretty new to the forums so im going to introducw myself. Im brandon and i am confused what i should get. I am 5'2 and in the 140-150 pounds and pretty experienced with four wheelers and dirt bikes. My question is would i be able play around on something like a stock yfz 450 without having to constantly be up on it making sure it wouldnt flip. Would i be able to handle the power/tourqe while being able to mess around and have fun?
I am trying to decide either to buy a trx450r or raptor 660. I am 15 and have been riding for 4 years, dirt bikes and 4 wheelers and just came off a raptor 250 all modded out. I ride mainly trails and backroads. Which would be all around better for trails and backroads. I want something that is reliable also. Dont want a 400 sport quad cause i feel there down on power.
I just started working on a trx450r I believe it is a 2005. It has the older carb as well. It sat for a while so I went in a rebuilt the carb and went to check the valves. The exhaust valves were alright but the intake had no clearance and had a 120 shim in it so there is no adjustment. So then I threw it together and went to take it around the block. Runs great when cold but as it gets hot it has a bog like reaction if I go past 1/4 throttle no matter what. But it runs great when cold. I’ve been told this is valve float and is actually common on these. Just want to make sure before I go out and spend 500 to get new valves and seats. Either way though I’ll have to get a head job done :(
