O.K. guys I'm new here and I have a few questions. I have a 03 foreman 450s that is stock except for holeshot atr tires. I do mostly trial riding and a little muding. The new tires made a big improvement in handling and ride but I still wish it was a little smoother when I'm going fast on the trials. My question is would the new foreman 500s give me a noticeably better ride or handling? Also is there much difference in power between the two? I stopped by a honda dealer tonight and he is making me a good deal on an 06 foreman 500s and I dont want to buy it if there is not a noticeable difference. What do you guys think about the rincon, I can get an 05 rincon for the same price as the 06 500s but from my reading it seems to be lacking low range power plus I tend to like solid rear axles for fast trial riding due to bettter stability. Oh yeah, I like a manual shift but how do you guys feel about the rubicon vs. the 500s? Does the rubicon have a better ride, handling or performance? Thanks for any opinions.
