Default Honda 400EX Anniversary Edition Graphics and Seat

I have the Anniversary Edition of the 400EX and the graphics are faded/peeling (i.e. needs replaced) and the seat also needs to be repaired/redone. Does anyone know where I can find the graphics kit? I have done some looking and I couldn't seem to find anything because it was a special edition. I would also be interested in a new seat or having this seat repaired somehow.

Any ideas are appreciated...

Those just look like aftermarket decals that somebody put on it. I took 3 seconds to google "anniversary edition 400ex" and it doesn't appear to be a thing.

Interesting - it's really my buddies ATV and I'm trying to figure this out for him since he's tied up in the Air Force right now. He told me it was a "special edition" graphics set. Maybe that's not really the case then...

the decals say 450r... are you sure its a 400ex? if it is then the decals are obviously not original from the factory.

as far as the seat you can order covers or just get a replacement...

That certainly looks a trx450r, not a 400ex. The first year for the 450r was 2004, and the only "anniversary" version was one with retro Honda colors starting in 2014, but it was white. To me, those look like aftermarket wraps or decals and a seat cover for sure. All of the factory seats that I've ever seen actually say Honda on them. Also, to my knowledge, Honda factory has never put any graphics on the gas tank in any versions. Look for "Honda trx450r retro graphics kits" and you might find something similar.

The picture is of an aftermarket graphic kit made by One Industries for a Honda TRX450R not an TRX400EX. Those kits have been out of production for several years now so the only way you are going to find that exact kit is to search places like ebay.

This is what I was looking for...

I'm just going off what my buddy told me/what I remembered. I wanted to find the kit as a favor for him while he's serving Active Duty and get it for him as a gift so I didn't want to ask him a bunch of questions about it - he just mentioned wanting to replace them in passing...

Sounds like I won't be able to find a replacement.

That is definitely a 450. I've owned three of them. Google trx450r graphics. There are thousands of designs out there. Plus you get a new seat cover with it. I used to change graphics every race season. Super easy to do and really easy to find.
Plus the retro style started in 2013. That's what I have now.

04-05 graphics are different from 06 and newer because of the hood and headlight design.

For some reason he is dead set on having exactly what it has now...I think it's because going way back, it was his first loan as an "adult" so he wants to maintain what it is or something. I was really hoping to surprise him with the correct graphics kit so he could replace the old ones, as well as a new seat/seat cover for it.

Well as the logo indicates. It is a one design graphic kit. Just like n style, factory effex, and others. They change the designs every year. So finding that style will prove a challenge if not impossible. But you could find one that looks similar. Do you have a picture of the front to see if it's a early model or late.

Thanks for the help. I don't have any other photos. Sounds like I'll just have to break the bad news...
