I just put a dynojet kit and k&n airfilter in. I now want to do tires and lift.
I dont want to slow my machine down though. Any advice? What is this perflex all about. Bascly I just want to make my foreman a bit more hard core. btw it is an 04 foreman es.

Thanks in advance

I have an 04 ES also. You will see what I have done to mine below. It will scare me where it will go now. This is with the short pipe on the intake, a longer one is shown below.

Moose,

Thanks for the info man! What is the differenc between the two lifts, is one more hieght less comfort and the othe less height more comfort. Im looking for a little of both I guess. As far as tires and wheels Im looking for something that will give me more traction and hieght without slowing me down. I like the looks of your ride, thats kind of what I am going after. Can tires and a lift give you a rougher ride?

Thanks in advance,

LeRoy

Depends on the tires. I have 27 bi/tri claws and it is almost as smooth as stock. It did loose a little power but with those tires you dont really get stuck to often. A clutch kit helps (which I need to get) to get them turning as they are a heavier tire. If you want a taller tire that doesnt weigh to much then youll need mudlites (which arent that great in mud) so Ive heard. With the pipe filter jets and snork you wil get back MOST power loss and like I said earlier the clutch will allow you to really spin the life out of them. My 450 does ok w/ out it as long as the mud isnt too thick. I also have the perfex kit on it. As for the lift, a normal lift will give the most lift (1.75 - 2") but ride rougher. The perfex will give a moderate lift, (1 - 1.5") but ride even smoother than stock. Check my pics in sig and see what you think.

Hey Moose,
I see that you have a Snorkit. Can you make the snorkel
high & low as you please. If so, that is pretty cool. I just
ordered 2 of them for our Foremans. I am lookin' forward
to gettin' them on.

Hey railroader just go to lowes or something and get the rubber couplings for the size pvc pipe and cut the pipe and put on the coupler, then you can just get another piece of pvc and make it as long or short as you want.

It comes with two risers, a short one and a long one. They screw into the metal bracket, then you put the angle on top. Be sure to make the adjustment to the metal pin in the carb to let more fuel in. Mine didn't run worth a hoot, untill I did that. Love it now.

Mudrunner, I went with the perfex kit because I want a better ride, and got it, also I got about one inch lift. I like the 26" tires, as you go larger, you eat up the horsepower. I don't get stuck often, but when I do, that's what friends and winchs are for.

You know I have seen a lot of Snorkits out in the woods. But I have yet to see some one actually using the smaller riser.
