Purchased my toy October 2, 2017. Ran it for a week to find out i had a hole in my left Crankcase. Then the project began...


(Image of hole in case once engine was out of frame. Discovered frame is also vacant of a VIN or any serial numbers)

Engine is apart.   ton of JB Weld chipping and over $600 in parts, she's ready to be put back together. Awaiting on more pieces and a $150 tool for the Crankshaft to be pulled into the case...

Well that sucks! Was it that way when you bought it and you didn't see it, or???

At any rate, nice to see you getting it back together again! Be sure to post your progress, Kaylee. :)

TRX450 hu? I had an '06 YFZ450. My buddy had the Honda though, fun machines! More pics are a must!

Nothing like fixing it yourself and knowing it's good to go!

Where are you in Florida? I'm from Ocala, though I'm currently living in Valdosta, Georgia.

You going to keep the black plastics? That thing will look awesome with a pink frame and black plastics.

oh okay! I had lunch in Gainesville yesterday.

Have you contacted the person that sold it to you?  Since you said there was JB Weld on it, I'm sure he knew it was there!  Dick move on his part.

Well if the rest of it is in good shape you'll have a nice machine when you're done fixing the engine. Any other engine fixes/upgrades while it's apart?

Here's a pic of my old Yamaha YFZ450 and my buddy's TRX450. These were taken on the north end of Las Vegas in the desert.

New Nerf bar nets, new handlebars and grips, handguards, new exhaust system, already bought new front and rear tires. I wanna do this how I want it. Definitely will be a badass machine.

I agree!  I paid off one vehicle, then turned around and bought another after I swore I wouldn't. Oh well, it's only money right!   Can't take it with us when we die!

UPDATE 3/22/18

It has been a long time. I'm proud to say the engine is complete. I'm in the final stages of deep cleaning the old frame, new tires, and some other cosmetic stuff.

It’s been awhile. A long while. So here’s an update:
Ended up getting fired from old job
Finished school
Have new job

The ATV was put on hold for awhile. Until now..
The main transmission timing bolt backed out and slammed against the clutch side cover on the inspection hole. 
Oil leakage so I thought the engine was originally seized. 
Being how stubborn I am. I was beyond pissed. So I refused to look at it. 

Last week is when I discovered the bolt backed out, which stopped the crank, which stopped the engine. 

This little bolt actually saved me $400+

Should be running this week hopefully.

Update 8/27/18
The bitch finally is together and runs. 😍
She isn’t perfect. Needs more work, but she starts, drives, and isn’t leaking. I’m happy.
