Anytime brother. Just don't want you wasting your time on something you won't be happy with. Seriously though go over to ltr450hq and do a search on the FUELATV filter and people who ride in muddy conditions. It works VERY well.

Unfortunately you won't really gain anything by cutting a hole in the airbox no matter where you cut it. All my comments above are assuming you already have the lid off.

I'm positive that's not the LTR intake because I have it and it doesn't mount like that.

Here's the LTR kit.

Definitely not the LTR kit. The LTR doesn't mount like that and you use the original boot.

Cutting a hole will do absolutely nothing for your power. Heck adding the K&N and cutting the heck out of the box only added 1hp on the dyno. If you totally remove the airbox and put on the K&N the Fuelatv will still get you an extra hp.

Don't butcher the airbox (I know as I did it). You'll gain nothing (unless you drastically cut it) and then it will only gain you 1hp.

Trust me.

If you find a better setup out there that is proven I"ll be all over it. There has to be plenty of data to back it up though and not only from the manufacture.

At ltr450hq.com several dyno OWNERS have tried this setup and have yet to find anything that will give you more power. That in itself is proof enough for me.

By my seat of the pants dyno when I tried the K&N route with a DRASTICILLY cut down airbox and then installed the FUELATV setup the FUELATV setup was much better. You have to remember that the intake attachment is also a velocity type adaptor which means it channels air more evenly towards the center which does two things.

1. It smoothens out the air flow
2. It speeds up the air which is ALWAYS a plus.

I have yet to see anyone who has done extensive testing between the K&N intake with a modded airbox and the FUELATV airbox that hasn't seen an improvement with the FUELATV setup.

For anyone who is afraid of getting rid of the airbox I have run my Z400 without one and the LTR without one right after I purchased each one and I do trail riding. As long as you do not submerge the intake you'll be fine. I find very little mud on the outerwear after a long days ride. There are several posts on ltr450hq.com showing how well it does in muddy conditions on the LTR.

This isn't for the LTR but here's an pic of a FUELATV intake that shows the adaptor which is a velocity adapter. This in combination with the huge filter is what makes the magic.

I received a reply and the guy just didn't realize he couldn't do what he was doing. Anyway I gave him some advice on how he could do what he was trying to do and not violate the copyright on the templates/graphics.

How about a new LTR with 30 minutes? It dies on hard flat landings as described above. Brand new quad 2 days old cant need a new filter. Any other causes? :)



That's the first thing I'd check if it were me or you could check the other items and then the fuel filter! No telling how long it was sitting at the dealer with fuel in it.

Any way I just put my exchanged yousurmia pipe on .My wheeler is runing great balls to the wall, It's only problem is that its hard to start ( work the throtle wich I know there should be none, or I can pull srart it. Once it starts it runs fine but when you stop your have to keeep reving it or it dies. once it dies you cannot start it with the starter, but it will re pull start. My question is I'm thinking about racing it this weekend at greenbrier TT race and if I do can I cause damage . Better yet can anyone tell my how strokin.gif to fix the problem or how to check,. and by the way I hav't experenced any oil in the air box as of late. It also is not blowing any smoke out the pipe (good sign?) Any help would be greatly appriciated. PLEASE!!! THANKS Jim Hardison Little Rock, Arkansas eek.gif

heres to all you mechanics out there.my 07 ltr450 wont start.it will run fine when bump started but it wont idle either.I run 93 octane usually with a little octane booster for races.i poured a whole bootle of booster in my bike the last race and thats when i noticed the problems.what could it be?i changed the spark plug and drained the gas and ran injector cleaner thru it but it still wont start up or idle when i bump start it.please help!



Most likely you ate up the fuel filter under the tank. I'd replace that first!

Also stop using the octane booster as it's a total waste of money. You think you are bumping it up 4 points or so but in reality you are only bumping it up .4 points. It's one hack of a marketing gimmick!

Check your fuel filter!

FUEL FILTER
Inside the swirl tank (small reservoir attached to the petcock) there is a small fuel filter. This filter needs only to be replaced maybe every six months to a year if you run pump gas. But- with some race fuels, the filter needs to be changed frequently. Some race fuels will dissolve the filter. The symptoms of a bad filter are when the bike inexplicably starts to cut out. Usually in the air off of jumps with a chopped throttle.

If your LT-R starts to show these symptoms, go to your dealer and buy a few of the filters and the O-ring gasket for the swirl tank (just in case you break the original) and replace the filter. We recommend cleaning the fuel pressure regulator at this time as well.

FUEL PRESSURE REGULATOR ISSUES
If your LT-R becomes hard to start and is running poorly, for no apparent reason, often times it could be the Fuel Pressure Regulator. Or, if you’ve had fuel filter issues due to corrosive race gas, the units can become clogged from either debris or corrosion. The normal 42psi pressure can be reduced below 40psi, and things start to go bad. The unit can be cleaned by removing it from the quad, and cleaning with contact cleaner and. We also like to use an air hose to blow out any potential debris.

FUEL LINES
Keeping your fuel lines and water lines cool and protected will make the rubber last a lot longer by protecting it from the heat. The race team uses a heat wrap that is made by CV-4. It looks good and improves durability.

Did you happen to stuff a rag into the intake to keep debris out. I did that once and it did the same thing!

How many hours do you have on the quad?

Can you pull start it?

Check your valves!

Disconnect your battery for about 5 minutes and then hook it back up with the Cherry Bomb installed and see what happens! If that doesn't fix it I would try another Cherry Bomb from another LTR if you have one available. If that doesn't do it there is something else wrong with the EFI system.

Hi

Just wondering do all your templates suit the 08' ltr 450, and also are they very accurate.

Thank You and i hope you can set your website up to be able to purchase as vinyls.

I just re-wired my bars this weekend to get rid of the blob. Got a sweet push start button, works great. Wired the lights on high beam, works great. Installed the N/C Gunnar tether to the orange and orange/white wires and the ground directly to the frame, does not work bike wil start and stay running with or without tether in? The tether had two wires coming out of it going into a sealed rubber casing with three wires coming out. Red, green, and black. The black had an eyelet on it so that went to ground and soldered the red and green each to one of the orange wires. Not sure if i have a bad switch or not but checking with an ohm meter the red and green never have perfect continuity and never cut out completely. Tehter in or out just changes resistance across the two wires. Anybody ever have this happen before i take this tether back and get another?\
thanks for any input


Try switching the two wires that go to each end of the orange with white striped wire you cut. That should do the trick if you wired everything else properly when you removed the blob.

I'm working with a printer for the graphics on my site and may have finally found one who could print them at a decent price. We are working out the details right now. When I find out more I'll let everyone know. Looks like when I set it up you'll be able to order the graphics straight from the site if you would like to have them printed through ATVgraphics.org. As always they will still be free to take to your local printer to have printed (if you can find one who will do it at a decent price).

I just want to give people options so they can have their graphics printed at a decent price. Price looks like it will be $150 per set. I'm still working out the details though.

To be up front I will be having another company print and ship these for me. It will be transparent to the person doing the ordering.

I'm getting some more specifics as to what type of equipment and material they use to print their graphics before I commit.

If you don't have to stat at 450 to to a bigbore kit like the Lukes Racing 500 kit. It's really a 493 kit but it's only $450 dollars for the entire kit. I had one of their 450 kits for my LTZ 400 and loved it. Another good thing is that it's not a steel sleeve which is always a plus. Their piston bumps the compression up to 12.8:1 also.
