*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...

      I'm likely going to have to drop the swingarm on a 300FW. Are the lock rings and pivot bolts standard or left handed threads?  I looked at the service manual and it doesn't specify left hand so I"m assuming standard right handed threads.  Not sure though.  The last Yamaha I had apart was regular right handed threads but haven't had a 300 apart before.

      I have a Kawasaki Bayou 220 KLF220A and I cannot get it to start using the starter button. I have replaced the starter solenoid and the starter relay. I have followed the wiring diagram in the repair manual and it looks like the switch is working well, the neutral and reverse relay have power running through them and appear tp be working correctly. However, I can not find a wire runnng the the starter button that has power on it. Anybody have any idea what the break down is?

      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
