Well i rolled my foreman over backwards today and have a lil problem and would like to know if you guys have any input on how to fix it... i know pics would help and will try to get some up here but for now i will try and explain what is going on.

1. Both left and right side plastics are bowed out ward just about where the fuel cut off is and about the same on the other side.

2. looks like my handle bars have moved down.

3. also apears all the front plastics is pushed back, like can see the uppers of the headlights.

any input and help would be cool and greatly appreciated. and like i said i will try and get pics on here.

Did you roll it back on top of the bike? That doesn't seem like enough to bend anything, but weirder things have happened. Hoping you are ok....

Sounds like you bent the fnt. rack or bumper. Try pulling off the rack and/or front bumper and see if your plastic moves back into shape. i had pushed my plastic back due to pushing on a downed tree and bending the fnt bumper/rack.

I would say odds are you didn't bend your frame. As adviced earlier , remove the front carrier rack & bumper . Chances are you will see were it has bent . New front bumper silver or black runs about $103.00 from Honda , Front carrier runs about $95ish .. I would straighten the rack , but if the front bumper is trashed replace it . Not that big of a deal on replacing. I have replaced several front bumpers for a couple of friends of mine. **** Ga. pine trees just jump right out in front of you when you least expect it . Don't feel bad , The 1st weekend I had mine , I was going down a steep hill , it stalled and the end result was a cart wheel across the front bumper . Not even a scratch on the Foreman , me on th eother hand was a different story . My back looked like I had been whipped with a cat of 9 tails , from being thrown into the pine thickets ..

My Buddy just slamed his into a tree last weekend and flatten the front bumper. That in turn pushed all his plastic back and bowed it up. We just got a new bumper and put it on and it moved everything back into place. I would suggest replacing or bending everything that looks tweeked. Once you've done that everything should come pretty close to looking straight. I have rolled mine twice: Once I rolled over about a 3' stump and rolled fwd and to the left - bent back rack and broke tail light. Bent the rack back and replaced tail light. Now you can't tell. Second time came down a hill and hit a hole wrong and did the same thing. Bent my handle bar on the right side. Not bad but noticeable. Still rides great though.
