Desert-Hawk

So Long Old friend

Recommended Posts

In the last five years I've had the pleasure to ride what

I believe is one of the finest ATV's My '05 'Desert Edition'

Honda Rubicon. From the desert flats in 100° heat to elevations

of 10,000ft, in temps of 19° Through boulder infested dried up

river beds and wash's and a occasional run in fender deep snow

not once did I have to walk or be towed back to camp !

This has allowed me to rack up 9,200 issue free miles and the

opportunity to ride and meet with some fantastic people across

the state of Arizona and points beyond...it's been a most excellent

adventure to say the least.

At this point in my life I have come to the reality that I'm not as

young as I once was and the need for an IRS suspension was becoming

more attractive after a long day of exploring in the desert southwest.

So I'd like to present My 2009 "Desert Hawk" Edition Rincon

My goal for this unit was to have all of the thing's that made the Ruby

the ultimate (for me) ATV with just a bit more snort and a cushy ride.

With this idea and information I've read on all of the site's I visit

I do believe my goal has been accomplished !

Nothing like this can be achieved with out some help so I'd like to

give a shout out to the Staff of Coyote Honda in Avondale, AZ.

ARIZONA'S LEVEL 5 Honda Powerhouse Dealer.

Left to Right Parts Manager Matt Service Manager John, And Master Technician

Dave who kept the Ruby in top running condition since 2005.

This will be the last time I'll ever see this on the Rincon !

Thanks BuckBilly :wink:

Ajmboy, Not yet and with a few things coming up this weekend

it's looking like next week :aargh:

A buddy of mine has two '08's and I've racked up a few miles on his

the thing I'll really be watching is the off camber areas.

      A clip from Diamonds Are Forever (1971) with James Bond riding a very early Honda Trike! 
      Three Honda ATCs come in at 1:54 with the one on th left pulling a sweet wheelie for 2 seconds! 
      Bond scenes are great!

      I likely just kissed $200 goodbye buying a Honda 250 this AM from Craiglist.  We'll see.
      - VIN number is off the front frame; one VIN site calls it a 2008 Honda 250 TRX - this baby ain't a 2008; other VIN sites list the VIN as invalid; might be that the owner (a shady dude from a shadier side of my home town) put a 2008 front end on it?  No idea.  
      - a HUGE hint (hint #1) would've been that there's no key to start the machine - gotta use a screwdriver.  I'll likely be visited by police sometime in the near future.
      - owner acquired from another man - owner showed me video of him riding it this summer on a major interstate while very drunk (hint #2) - the machine sounded good in the video
      - no front headlight; owner said machine has new carb - looks Chinese - he didn't have original carb; air intake box is wide open - no long plastic connection sleeve leading into air box like on my 99 king quad; no visible oil leaks; oil is dark; air filter clean; decent plastic; no front right brake apparatus; left brake handle very loose and rear brake doesn't work
      - battery at this point is good; manipulate the ignition switch w/ screw driver and the green neutral light shines (this has since stopped working)
      - it's a kick start machine: when I kicked it down (hint #3), the compression sounded normal, almost "tight"  but at the end of the cycle, there was some awful grinding noise coming from what sounded like either inside the engine or the starter area; I let it settle, kicked it again, same noise heard at the end of cycle; owner said it likely needs a new starter - I only hope it's this simple
      pictures attached - the throttle cable / zip tie pic is my favorite - but it works!  it was CRAZY dirty prior to pressure washing - and the water in air box is likely secondary to the power wash - no water was in it when purchased
      gotta few things to complete on the king quad - will be changing motor/gear oil in honda and getting new oil filter over time - talk soon - hope y'all had a great Christmas

      Hi,  I'm looking for a repair manual for a 2011 Honda Rancher 420 ES.  I've been looking on here and have only seen manuals for the 420 AT.  Does anyone have a PDF that would be willing to share?  
      Thanks in advance.

      Looking for a used crankshaft (cheap) for a 2003 Honda Recon or 250EX. Several model years will work. I only need the timing chain sprocket, but I can remove it from the old crank.

      I don't have any lack of power on short hills, but when I get a long uphill road the ATV will slow way down to about 30KPH. If I work the throttle to give it more gas it just gets worse. Then if I let up on the throttle it runs better, but of course slows down even more. Am I looking at a carb problem, or what? I tried getting at the air screw, but can barely get a screwdriver in it and then can't adjust...won't turn at all. I cannot find a fuel adjustment screw anywhere I can see on the carb, and the manual does not show one. My plug is burning black, wouldn't that be too much fuel, and how do I correct that? It may be that the engine is flooding when I go uphill and throttle up.
