Like the topic says, how many miles do you have on your Rubi? What is the most miles that you know of someone having on a Rubicon? I have 1500 on my 05, I have a friend that has 6200 on an 02, lets see some numbers.
When I first bought this 05, I put front wheel bearings in at 400 miles, I had the shifter replaced at 750 miles (it would not click into a positive setting, kinda like a stuck button but more serious). The same day I went to get it from the shop after the shifter was fixed, my display meter had a crack in the lens, I had to buy that out of pocket, and an assist light, because it had a crack in it. Reason I mentioned all these little things is that I dont know for sure, but I would be willing to bet not one of my problems has to do with any item Honda makes themself. I think the assist light I broke trying to adjust the beam height, and the meter I feel was cracked during shipment. Bearings, now thats another story, why would any ATV manufactor not put sealed bearings in their units. My shifter problem, dealer said he had never saw that before, how many times have you heard that? The reason for this longer than it should have been post is, when I bought this Rubicon I thought it was cursed for the first 6 months. Now its just like all other Honda's we have grown to trust, and I do trust mine, I would take it over any other brand out there.
I have a 04 with 400 miles don't get time to ride much anymore but a have a 97 400 foreman that i bought new with over 35,000 besides new pistons and rings from a bath in the river. where it had to be dug out with a bac khole no problems keeps the gnats of but runs great!!!!!!!!
