Hey guys, new to the forum hoping y'all might have some insight for me.

Picked up a 2017 Foreman 500 from a close friend of mine for just a couple hundred dollars. The catch is that is was sank about a year ago and has sat with a locked motor, filled with oil. Oil didn't do much, bottom end is rusty from what I can see on the rear crank bearing and through the oil cap.

I can't seem to find a motor anywhere for it so I'm stuck on what to do.I'd rather not pull it apart to rebuild since the whole case is a rust bucket. Will a 420 motor fit? Or even an earlier model 500? Or should I start parting it out on eBay?

Try some of the other Honda ATV sites, there are motors out there... I would tear it down unless you know for certain that it is junk, did your friend leave water in the motor for a while before he filled it with oil?
