Got an 05 foreman ES here with almost 21k and 4822 hours, No major repairs only fixed some issues with the electric shift. I’m wondering how many miles do y’all have on your Foreman?

My 06 foreskin has just rolled over 2700 miles and 570 hrs. It has had a rough life and i have replaced two rear right taillights due to folks behind me not having brakes, bout to do rings and hone the cylinder due to me pulling the engine for oil leaks and shift linkage messed up. Love the bike but i wish i could do some wheelies lol

4800 hrs with no major repairs is quite impressive. ?

I see that milage all the time, even with the sxs. Maintenance is key when used for work and daily use. Once they are mud and water machines that mileage varies depending on the operator. My 09 has over 10,000 miles on it and in the past it was completely under water (drowned) and pulling the drag in my drive the next day (ride it out after fishing it out the previous). Its still running strong and ready to go at any time. I dont know if I ever shared that vid on here but its quite a ride when the ice gives away and you say good bye to your wheeler.

toodeep post your video when you get a chance. I'll like to see it. I couldn't imagine the horror of seeing my atv sinking.

Theres a good 8 inches of ice under the water. I got a little too close to a ice dam where it was thinner and took a plunge. Boring vid, 2 winches pulling on it and it took everything they had. Drained the water off until oil started to flow, dried air filter, turned it over a few times to clear out the cylinder and it ran the rest of the day.

The next day I was doing this to warm it up and change the oil.

Lol yeah it’s seen it’s fair share of abuse over the years. I still remember it being brand new and being put to work the second it got off the truck and didn’t get it’s first oil change till about 300 hours later ?

Comparing my mileage so far on my 2015... it'll run another 140 years. Probably have to replace the tires

So far I have averaged 75 miles per year since buying mine new. It has been lost to the water a few times and each time I took it swimming just drained the water by tipping it on the side and then stand it up and she fires back up to spray out the exhaust. When ever I go out riding I bring 2 oil change kits and air filters with to change it right away after the swim and then again at the end of the day. All I have had to do is oil and filters so far without any real issues other then a new front axle which might be because of the heavy rims and tires I am running. It has about 460 miles now but still going strong and able to spin those 55lb each tire/rims through the mud!

Had an 06 Foreman that I bought for $500. Old Rancher had it, and he told me he only used it around the ranch. Had well over 17,000 miles on it. I rebuilt the frontend, and put some new tires on it. (A arm bushings, shocks, all the ball joints, wheel bearings, knuckles, and cleaned up the shift motor) Sold it for 2k. After I did all the maintenance, this thing didn't burn a drop of oil. I'm sure it has years left before any major repairs. (Motor work) Nothing is better than a Honda in my opinion.
