Just got my new foreman.only took down road becuase of all the salt on roads ( winter here). Noticed a difference in tourque compared to my 2017 i had ( also had a 2006 foreman ).
Love the feel of a honda . Working on changing decals, 27" cst abuzz ( backored) boxes for front . Bought smaller plano boxes to try so it has room for gas can or snorkel. Can't find a front rack extension or accessories for new racks ( nothing special).
Will update and post more pics as i update it.
Love the foot shift
Bikes i have had to compare:
2004 honda 350 fm
2006 foreman 500 fm
2012 sportsman 500ho
2009 kingquad 400 foot shift
2014 kodiak 450
2017 foreman 500 fm
2018 ranger 570 mid
2017 sportsman 450ho
2019 kodiak 700 eps ( current main bike)

Congratulations on the new Foreman. Love the light bars and the winch. Looks like you added those yourself. Nice. How does the new Foreman compare to your 700 Kodiak. Please keep us posted on any updates.

Welcome. Nice new Foreman. My 01 Rubicon is a great machine and a work horse, it only has 1700 miles on it and I have only owned it a year and a half. I also have a 2017 Kodiak 700 ESP SE that is a Awesome machine. Power, comfort, etc no comparison. I know the new Hondas have all the same bells and whistles like power steering and EFI but they did not give me the WOW factor of power, ride, and handling. 91D660DC-087C-46BB-AAF7-5CC36E1E7917.jpeg 4E3DA916-B29D-44AC-9764-691F82302ABA.jpeg CE10B0AC-AD46-48F0-A656-B2A54E8423ED.jpeg AD6C9FF7-8DF3-4150-A36B-5E57CD95B9F3.jpeg

kodiak better for more agressive trail riding. but foremans gears are better for bigger tires and more controlled in real rough terrain with no belt bs. ( cleaning and servicing, worn 200$ belt, replacing clutches etc..)
will put videos up with comparisons when i get new tires and we dont have a crap load of snow.. haha

love the old school honda! yeah kodiak is fun but something about gears ( quieter, less bs and only 2 cv compared to 4). i like them both but wanted a second bike that would last a long time. and keep trading kodiak in every 3years (4500 klms a year).
what ever gets us out into the bush!! :)

I have had 3 different Yamaha’s and have never had to replace a belt. Very solid transmission system. Yamaha gives you a 10 year warranty on belts because it is that good.
