Just had Bettencourts Honda, of West Bridgewater MA, put a hi comp piston in, a brand new left side case, rebuilt the starer clutch, and the transmission. Cost me $2,056.67 and have the receipts to prove it.

A little history: I am in the USCG and owned this 450 while stationed on a ship that is gone for 6 months out of the year. I barely ride, and all of my friends have moved on to motorcycles, and I have nobody to ride with. I keep the bike at my parents' house which is 45 minutes away. . which adds to me never riding it.
Late 2011 i was experiencing starter clutch issues, took it apart, and thought i had fixed it, but the bike developed an odd knock so i took it to Bettencourt's Honda. They completely tore the bike down and gave me an estimate for a complete new left side case (worn out bearing seats) and a whole lot more (view receipts) such as tranny gears, forks, etc. While it was apart i had them put a JE 12.5:1 piston in. I was deployed and left the bike at Bettencourts for 2 months, and picked it up on February 2nd, 2012.
Since repair, i have literally rode the quad 4 times. The thing is an absolute scream. The piston along with the cam really woke the bike up, but like i said, i never ride.
I am sure there is a lot i have forgotten but i plan on going to my parents house early next week to take pictures, gather extra parts, and see if i have forgotten anything.
Let me know if you have any requests.
These are all the pictures i have as of now
