How many miles on your foreman?

Got an 05 foreman ES here with almost 21k and 4822 hours, No major repairs only fixed some issues with the electric shift. I’m wondering how many miles do y’all have on your Foreman?

My 06 foreskin has just rolled over 2700 miles and 570 hrs. It has had a rough life and i have replaced two rear right taillights due to folks behind me not having brakes, bout to do rings and hone the cylinder due to me pulling the engine for oil leaks and shift linkage messed up. Love the bike but i wish i could do some wheelies lol

I see that milage all the time, even with the sxs. Maintenance is key when used for work and daily use. Once they are mud and water machines that mileage varies depending on the operator. My 09 has over 10,000 miles on it and in the past it was completely under water (drowned) and pulling the drag in my drive the next day (ride it out after fishing it out the previous). Its still running strong and ready to go at any time. I dont know if I ever shared that vid on here but its quite a ride when the ice gives away and you say good bye to your wheeler.

toodeep post your video when you get a chance. I'll like to see it. I couldn't imagine the horror of seeing my atv sinking.

Theres a good 8 inches of ice under the water. I got a little too close to a ice dam where it was thinner and took a plunge. Boring vid, 2 winches pulling on it and it took everything they had. Drained the water off until oil started to flow, dried air filter, turned it over a few times to clear out the cylinder and it ran the rest of the day.

The next day I was doing this to warm it up and change the oil.
