Been here long ago but got away from atv’s completely for a while. Now i need one for hunting to make life alot easier. So here i am again with a new 420. Hope to share knowledge and gain some to boot. The plan is to stay pretty much stock as far as suspension and tires. Maybe go with legal wma tires 25x12, 1” lug.
Racks and gun rack coming up first.
And i like light, so im looking at adding the foreman handlebar headlight, also the foreman 12v outlet.

Welcome to the site, now your first post makes more sense to me.....


The pod light on the formans only tturn on when the high beams are on, you can wire it to come on in low or high. Not sure of wire colours for the hi and lo beams tho..

welcome to the site, if you like light, might just be better off adding some LED light bars, way more light that a OEM center pod light, and well, cheaper too!
can also add them to the back and make life a lot easier at night going backwards too!

It will be cheaper to just go with a light bar but i like the looks of the oe light. May look at building an led chip to put in it later on.

Yea i figured i had ya puzzled for a bit. I was hopeful that the wiring was already in the harness just needing the light to be plugged in

The pods take a standard 880 bulb, the lower lights are honda plugs. I have an LED in my pod, but my light bar is brighter.
