Anyone know the valve cleanrance specs for the '08 450 engine? I know there was a slight cc difference with the quads of 04-05, not sure if the bikes were the same also (439cc I believe). I have a friends service manual from his '04 model, and wanted to make sure the specs and shim chart were the same......before digging into mine.

Cold valve clearance
-intake 0.10-.015mm (0.0039-0.0059in)
-exhaust 0.20-0.25mm (0.0079-0.0098)

TIA

The specs are the same, but the engine has been a 449 since '05 or '06.

Where's your manual?


Also, this is a quad. You need to take this over to ATVTalk.com, TT's four wheeled site.

Not arguing with that, but its the same motor.......and I figured I'd get a quicker reply over here, since ATVTalk is in its initial stage. :bonk:
