The 400EXs pads look nothing like the Foreman's. The 450R's are closer, but still different. Different part numbers and different prices on Service Honda. Not to mention the 500 usues a different set of pads on the right and left front.
i was looking in the new rockymountainatv catalog and saw that the 400ex uses PN TA84X foreman 500 4x4 uses PN TA84X. they are tusk carbon. unless the catalog is wrong. 450r uses PN TA185X. i have not compared the 400ex pad to the foreman 500 pad so i was goin by part numbers.
So what do ya'll consider better. The "old" drum brakes or the new
disk brakes. My drum brakes still stop me on a dime. I do keep them
maintained though. About 3-4 times a year i will take the drum cover
off & clean out the brakes & put some new grease around the rubber
seal & if needed, adjust the brakes. I ride in lots of water, so if drums
were that bad, i should be the person they would go out on. Although
my buddy who has a 2003 Rubicon, his breaks are shot. He never
maintains them though. So i guess drums require a lot more maintainence
& the disk require new pads alot. So which is better, 'cause if mine ever
wear out, i want to put the disk break conversion kit on.
