2003 Honda Foreman S 450 - Tow In/Tow Out

Recommended Posts

I have an issue with toe in/tow out on my Foreman S. The manual says 3/4 to 1 3/4 inch Tow Out, this seems wrong and it has caused my front tires to wear as if they rubber is being torn off them, (which it is). My Kodiak 450 manual has a Tow In of 0-.39 inches which seems more reasonable. What should the Front In tow be set at????

does the manual say to have the front end suspended when you do this? it would make more sense then the weight of the front end down would set it flatter on the tread. i don't know if i'm out in left field here or what ...

maybe set them like your yami if it's tearing your tires apart and see how it responds steering wise ...

Thanks for the response. Yes, it is supposed to be suspended. My thoughts are to set it up like the Kodiak. But, I was wondering if anyone had run into this before in the factory manual.......

i had 2 new hondas, but i never had to adjust anything like this before. i'm sure if you set it up like the yami, you should be good to go. just watch the handleing and adjust if it's a little off, but i'm sure you should be good. JMO ...

The front end was towed in 1 3/4 inches and had always had a handling problem. It took out the right wheel bearing and I had noticed the tires wearing weirdly and had ordered new ones. I found the tow in when I replaced the bearing and went back to the manual to get the proper adjustment and it said TOW OUT about that much. It just didn't sound right and I didn't want to ruin the new tires. So I will set it up at about 1/4 inch tow in like my Kodiak is and see how it goes.

      I bought a Honda 250sx 1986 but the exhaust is broken. Apparently it's not possible to order a new one. I checked to order one on others compagny but there's noting.
      Do you know which exhaust it's possible to install. Is there a company who sold an exaust to fit on my 250sx.
      Sorry for my english
      Thank you

      Im working on a old 1987 honda 125 4 wheeler in the school shop. It will start by getting pulled by another 4 wheeler but wont start with the pull start or Electric Start. When you pull start it it tries to start but when you try the electric start it just turns over but doesnt even act like it wants to start. The spark plug is dry and it shoots fuel out of the back(air filter side) of the carb. Weve had the carb off twice and it is complety clean. What are some things we can try?

      Hey I own stock why Yfz 450 and I'm just looking to slap a turbocharger on it.. I was just wondering if they're pretty compatible with these machines it is the carburetored version Yfz 450. I have all the piping hook ups / kit that's threw HURON SPEED an i also have turbo lined up for it gt 12.. I was just wondering what else I need to make this work? I know i would need to up the Jets and stuff for starter but Is it just that simple or do I need blow off valves and like some time on regulator on it or so forth? Trying get ideal what i would need
