Re: new vehicle

That's a funny way to spell 'Honda'.

Re: new vehicle

You've got it on the price issue ($1200 difference), but the comparable Honda has a couple MORE inches ground clearance, longer wheel travel and is lighter (only by a couple pounds).

this model does. when i was doing the research i was looking at the 350-400's and honda was shorter and it is only 1/2 inch 10 for the honda and 9.5 for mine. oh yeah i got mine OTD for 6349 and the honda would have run me 8698.93 OTD

Re: new vehicle

But you bought the 650, the Honda equivalent would be the Rincon. Yours has 9.5 under the chassis, but only 7 at the axle. The Rincon is 10 front to back with greater wheel travel.
Just picking nits. The Brute Force quads hold their own just fine.

Nice whip
Kawi. can't be building too much off-road junk, they've kept the Marines happy for 13+ years

So is this going to turn into a thread for your old one for sale? I have a pic around here somewhere...

why would i care what it is at the axle as long as the wheels can clear the obstacle? i am not going to parallel it when crossing, i would cross perpendicular, like we do over a RR track on our bikes

Nice ATV... Remember when a 350 4x4 was a "big-block"?

And then there's this asshole...

Re: new vehicle

Does that motor have anything on common with an SV650? (other than its 2 cylinders and displacement you sarcastic fux)

I'm only wondering if that has to do with the Kawi / Suzi merger/takeover "deal" thing?

And then there's this asshole...
