Honda TRX450R

Honda us down to the Lake Whitney MX in Whitney, Texas to see and ride the new everyone has been waiting on. It was the wait! Yes, it is everything you expect from Honda.

To a couple of rumors first, NO it is not a 450 engine in a 400EX frame, the is totally new. Second, it is not the 450 bike engine adapted to the frame, its new from the Valve (only interchangeable part) Honda put a lot of time and effort to this a great quad!

The Whitney MX Track was an ideal to test and ride the new 450R. this track is off limits to Honda made arrangements to use track for the week. The track is laid out and was perfect for testing the Table tops, drop doubles, whoops, and step ups on this track.

Beginner could have a blast the track and the more advance get all the “air” they wanted.

The of the 450R is an ATV specific built liquid-cooled four-… single-cylinder with a bore and … of x 64.8mm creating a displacement of Cooling the big engine is accomplished a big aluminum radiator with controlled electric fan. The TRX uses the same type of as the CRF engine. A single camshaft the intake valves while a roller rocker arm operates the valves.

Eliminating an exhaust camshaft and and the added chain to drive cuts down on the weight on the end of the engine. Keeping the weight as low as possible is a high priority on ATV quad. The cast piston has a skirt at 28.4mm, but has 3 rings for longevity.

The piston sleeve is a liner which saves and permits closer piston-to-cylinder for cooler operation for better life and consistent power You will find a needle on the big end of the connecting rod, for maximum rpm and

One of the interesting features of the 450R is the vertically split crankcase. The TRX uses a twin wet-sump to separate the transmission/clutch oil from the oil. This allows the to use two separate kinds of oils in the engine. Now your clutch oil not contaminate the crankshaft/camshaft oil with friction material.

Added baffles in the cast of the engine keeps everything up even when riding on terrain.

Forget about start, this is a performance The forward rotating kick makes for easy starting of the big quad. With a built in compression release, one smooth kick is all that’s need to it up.

A “hot start” lever is mounted on the left handlebar to in starting the engine after its up. A 42mm Keihin Carburetor provide plenty of wide-open and a throttle position sensor help maintain accurate throughout the rpm range. Honda the clutch easy to service by a removable clutch cover. We can see aftermarket billet anodized coming

Under that red plastic you will find a new designed frame. Made of tube steel with an sub frame it has been highly for maximum strength and handling. The sub is easily removed for easy to the engine and rear suspension. A cast aluminum swingarm is but strong and the Pro-Link rear system features new linkages and developed specifically for the 450R’s suspension.

The left side countershaft and axle carrier feature row bearings for added durability. shocks are used front and with 8.4 inches of travel up and 9.0 inches on the rear. All shocks fully adjustable remote The front shocks have the turned to the rear for added On some brands of shocks you find the adjustment does not do much from one of the adjustment to the not on these shocks.

Small increments are all that’s needed to any needed changes to tailor the to your liking.

On the front end of the wishbone style a-arms are disk brakes with piston calipers. An innovative brake line system flexible CR style hoses zero expansion steel to produce stopping power. The new lines and adjustable reach make the braking feel At the rear is a 190mm disc oversize single piston

All calipers are constucted with for reduced weight.

After hours of testing tires, decided Dunlop’s were the all around tire for the rear, but the tires are an all new design, specifically for the

The shiny plastic is all new for the 450R. Up you will find dual headlights for excellent night viability. Rubber grommets the nose section on allows for removal and access to the major components.

On the rear is a trick LED tail light/brake light. We can how many of these tail will find there way to quads.

A welcome change other models is a removable that is separate from the plastic. Under the seat is the kit and the air box. Under the removable air box lid is a foam type air cleaner As previously mentioned, the engine oil is into two reservoirs.

Different of oil can be used, if so desired, on each The right side oil, by a mechanical oil pump, has an easily paper oil filter. The left clutch side, uses the method of oiling the clutch and transmission gears. They can be drained and replaced as necessary.

The oil have been increased the CR engine design because of the strain of the quad weight, and because of the different attitudes the engine will be running in. design utilizes an oil cooler and no oil tank is needed for engine

When you finally get to ride the you are going to realize the wait has well worth it. Honda has put a lot of R-D this quad in an effort to it the best. The ride and handling are to none. We rode the 450R on the some trails and also nice tall hill It never let us down.

In the air the R is very and we noticed no bad habits, it’s a jumper. The shocks are easily for rider preference and unlike adjustable shocks, these do work. The front tires the R headed right were you it and the rears have just the amount of traction to power you through the turns or propel you off the The frame and suspension geometry are on the legendary 250R with new and improvements.

Handling is spot on, like you would expect Honda. The quick revving engine has plenty of power and we are the aftermarket companies are hard at to make it even better. The end seems light and nimble and the riders will have no getting the front end airborne.

HRC (Honda Racing Corporation) is to market a “hop-up” kit for the 450R. will include a more air box lid, differnet jetting, air box snorkel and removal of the muffler After riding the hopped up we think it will be definitly the roughly 0.00 list

There was a noticeable difference in the of the two quads, and it adds a deep sound to the quad.
