*2012 Honda Rincon Tires 2 Heavy?

Recommended Posts

I have a Honda Rincon 680 with a few mods... I also have 32" Gorilla Solverbacks which weight roughly 50 lbs. I have trouble spinning them in deep thick mud... If I switch to 30" Gorilla Silverbacks that weight roughly 40 pounds, will a total of 40 POUNDS make a big enough difference or no... Please let me know what you think... Thanks!

In return, I'll definately be replying back to any of your questions if I an knowedgable in the question asked...

the smaller the tire, the easier it is to spin (32" to 30"). shaving 10 lbs a tire will help too.

your Honda should have the berries to spin them, but if you look at a tire for traction, the tire is made not to spin but get the traction ...

what does the Honda do? does it bog down or just plow thru?

It goes through anything! It also bogs the motor bad though... That motor is pushing and pushing but its straining so bad so I figured if I went with 30" tires, taking away 40 lbs total would possibly save the engine in the future... Overall what Im saying is it will go through the mud but the tires will barely turn... Im worried about the engine life...

Well with all that I did with the motor and gears, I can spin 32" Gorilla Silverbacks completely submerged under thick mud and turn them... I just cant spin them fast... I figured 30" would be fine due to taking off 40 pounds of tire...

      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

      My quad runs,  it starts up runs for about 10 minutes and then it dies if you let it sit for 10 minutes it’ll start back up ride for another 10 minutes and then die again, trying to figure out why it keeps stalling

      So this’ll be long I’ll give all the background first to see my issue skip to the ***
      Hey I picked up a pit bike and a foreman for 800 the pit bike was running but the foreman was locked up.  Sold the pit bike but when I took the top end off the piston I only found half a piston left.  So knowing the rest of the piston was down in the crankcase I knew it had to be pulled and gone thru completely.
      to pull the motor I went ahead and pulled the rear end off and unbolted the front diff to pull the drive shafts and pull the motor.  Now I have the motor torn down completely and have all the parts of the piston removed.  I know the rod and crankshaft is shot (heat discoloration and too much up and down play rod to crankshaft).  
      ***so I’m wondering while I have the motor apart what should I check for?  I know this motor died from heat as the oil in the head smelled like popcorn.  So what should I check to make sure I fix the issue (overheating I assume) and not just the symptoms (blown up motor lol).
      so put simply I don’t want to just rebuild the motor to have it overheat and repeat the process after 5mins of running
      Here’s some pics

      Hey guys, Im new here but I recently Picked up a '99 Foreman 400 that apparently just had a top end rebuild. It blows white smoke like crazy and ticks/knocks and seems to follow the rpm's. I haven't done to much trouble shooting yet, It starts and runs like a champ and has good compression. I was just wondering if anyone has any suggestions as to where to go.
      Oh ya the top end rebuild the guy did was according to him he honed the cylinder and replaced the piston and rings, my fear is an ovaled cylinder?

      I am kind of sick of having a stock ATV and not that willing to spend money on it but would love to spend some time for some easy homemade mods to kill time. Thanks.
