    :hello: I shifted projects. I'm helping my Son Jareds friend Cory put his motor back in his 450 R. A few months ago the drive chain went through the left center case and a hunk of concrete went through the right outer case a month before that. While I was inside the right side about 3 months ago I rebuilt the water pump. It takes the same bearings, seal & mechanical ceramic seal as the ZL 9 & 10 so I already had the parts. I also repaired some of the wiring harness that had a few broken wires. My friend Ron A. split the cases and went through the whole motor to make sure nothing was wore out. He said who ever had the quad before must of just did a top end rebuild because the piston had very little carbon on it. Parts was around $400 and Ron charged $200 labor. We started putting the 450 together at 7 PM tonight. Went to start the bike at 1 AM and the FN float is stuck. So I'm done for the night.

    :hello: While the bikes done . Tapping on the carbs float bowl stopped the leak. Cory is 19. I call him coil or string head. He used to race motocross but after his 4th concussion his Mother said he was done. He was leading in points in the 250 C class in 2017 in his division when he quit racing.

    :hello: I took this 450 R out for a one hour ride today. It sucks on the trails. you have to keep the revs up and feather the clutch. It only wants to go fast. It doesn't have a reverse.
