Rear shock

I just replaced my rear shock on my 2012 foreman because it was so bouncy it would beat the **** out of you , I put a bronco gas shock on and it didn’t really help any still Bouncy as **** , if you give it gas the **** rear end raises up, I’ve messed with the preload to see if it would help but little to no difference?

Good shocks for the Foreman are really expensive. I am headed down the same path as you but I am going to convert myn to a mono shock. Which I believe your atv has.

I just did an irs conversion on my 450 amd got bronco shocks for and they are awesome. I thought they were a little soft then adjusted them about a half inch and they worked awesome.

Dang you did a great job. Your back end looks really nice! When are you going to do a build thread?

Thanks. I dont have enough good pictures of the build to really do a thread. There is one build thread on it here already thats what i went off. Its actually an easy build. I was worried about splicing the drive shaft but the rincon shaft fits the 450 output shaft. If you wanna move the rear end back then you have to extend the shaft of course. Feel free to ask questions.
