Since I bought my 2001 Honda 450 ES in the fall of 2001, I've done a fair amount of upgrades and mods to the quad. Here is a list of what I've added:

I've taken out the stock front differential and replaced it with the same front differential as the 2002 Honda 450 which enables me to switch electronically on the fly between 2 wheel drive and 4 wheel drive.

Improves overall stability, handling and riding comfort while passing through rough terrain. The front end of the vehicle feels lighter to handle resulting in more stirring ease. The "4 wheel lock" stirring effect is greatly reduced. Violent impacts are absorbed better by the chassis resulting from vertical down force which decreases the kick back effect from the ATV on to the rider. More wheel contact to the ground and better traction in mud due to the increased vertical drop out.

Other additions include: Maxxis mud tires (26 x 12 x 12 on rear, 26 x 10 x 12 on the front), ITP Chrome wheels, 2000 lb. Warn winch, and Dirtyhowies Tow kit.
