HONDA CRF 450R & 450X REBUILD VIDEO MANUAL FAQs
WHAT ARE GUYS SAYING THAT HAVE USED THE VIDEO MANUALS?
I'm proud to say that in the short time the video manuals have been available over 400 riders have used them to rebuild their engines! Many have sent testimonials, two of which I want to share with you.
The Honda CRF 450 Video Manuals are a way to teach you, step-by-step, how to replace your top end, bottom end, or adjust valve clearances - no factory service manual needed. The videos are filmed in high definition, are professionally edited, and include everything you need to perform the rebuild task at hand.
Once you purchase one of our Honda CRF 450 Video Manuals an email is sent to your inbox where you have all of the Video Manual in one place, PDFs and videos included. From there you can download the tool list, torque specs list, Honda part numbers list, and Honda service specs list right to your computer or mobile phone. You can also download or stream the videos on your computer or phone and watch them instantly while you work.

DO I NEED A FACTORY SERVICE MANUAL TO USE THE VIDEOS?
Nope! That's the beauty of these Video Manuals. Once downloaded they come with everything you need to have a successful disassembly, inspection, and reassembly. Each Video Manual comes with a specific list of tools, part numbers, and Honda service specs, as well as a worksheet to help you keep track of your build as you follow along. Having a factory service manual in your garage is never a bad investment when it comes to performing other maintenance tasks, but you do not need one to use our video manuals.
WHAT IS INCLUDED WITH EACH VIDEO MANUAL DOWNLOAD?
When you download a Video Manual you receive the following documents and videos:
WHAT IS/ARE THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE HONDA CRF 450R AND THE CRF 450X IN THE VIDEOS?
The main difference is that the CRF 450X has a starter system on the engine and we cover how to disassemble and reassemble this system in a document included in your download. There is also a difference on the 2008 to 2012 CRF 450X models in which an auto decompression system replaces the manual decompression system, and we include a document in your download that details how to disassemble and reassemble this system as well. There are also subtle differences in service and torque specifications for the different model years and we have all the correct information for each respective model year in its video. We use a 2004 Honda CRF 450R in our video manuals to demonstrate visually all of the steps throughout the disassembly, inspection, and reassembly process, but we cover everything according your model year's needs in your respective video manual.
CAN I STREAM THE VIDEO MANUALS INSTEAD OF DOWNLOADING THEM?
Yes! Once you purchase a Video Manual from our DIY Moto Fix Gumroad Account, you can instantly stream the videos through your mobile phone or home computer. If you own an Android Phone, here is the free app to stream through your mobile phone. If you own an iPhone, here is the free app to stream through your mobile phone.
WHY SHOULD I PAY DIY MOTO FIX INSTEAD OF FINDING FREE VIDEOS ONLINE?
There is not a single youtube video online for free that takes you through a complete rebuild, top end rebuild, or valve clearance adjustment from start to finish in the detailed precise way that DIY Moto Fix does. Our Video Manuals take you through the entire process of repairing or rebuilding your Honda CRF 450. With everything in one place, once you purchase and download a video manual there is no need to search for tools, part numbers, or service specifications. The free videos out there do not provide this for you. As we began creating these video manuals we watched as many of the free videos online that we could find, as a professional I want to warn you that there are quite a few mistakes being made in many of the free Youtube videos available. These videos are poorly made, the attention to detail is nonexistent, the information provided is spotty, and the mistakes that can be accrued from trying to reference them can be extremely costly.
When you learn from a professional like me, you are learning from someone who has designed and built engines. We care deeply that you rebuild your bike the right way. By supporting DIY Moto Fix you are supporting a company that cares about the knowledge and wisdom brought to dirt bike enthusiasts everywhere.
WHAT PROGRAMS ARE NEEDED TO PLAY THE VIDEO MANUALS ON MY COMPUTER?
Our Video Manuals are compatible with VLC Media Player and Quicktime. Both programs are downloadable for free, are completely safe, and provide the highest quality of playback for our videos. Other programs will work as well but we have not tested extensively with them.
CAN I GET THE HONDA CRF 450 VIDEO MANUALS ON DVD?
DIY Moto Fix believes you should get these videos instantly, with the click of a button. When your bike is in need of fixing, it usually needs it now. That's why we made downloadable and streamable videos, so you can immediately start working on your dirt bike to get it up and running.
IF I WANT TO BUY THE FULL ENGINE REBUILD OR TOP END REBUILD VIDEO MANUALS, DO I NEED TO BUY THE VALVE ADJUSTMENT VIDEO MANUAL SEPARATELY?
You do not need to buy the Valve Adjustment Video Manual along with the Top End Rebuild or the Full Engine Rebuild Video Manuals. We include a valve adjustment in both the Top End and Full Rebuild Video Manuals so you can perform a complete and successful rebuild of your Honda CRF 450R or 450X engine.
As always we are an email away if you have any questions before you buy or during your build!
