A lot of those guys have moved on to other machines. The die hard Honda guys don't except any other machines and I hope you don't take it personally.

I'm not here to make friends, but I'm not against it. I look for tips and I share tips. I hope you stick around Mac and share your tips with us modders that are still here. Search helps, but doesn't always answer back.

Dang-most of the those ATVers who need a more powerfull 800cc, 900cc or 1000cc are compensating for lack of something else. I can understand someone looking for a machine strickly for racing or mudding but to me thats a huge waste of a prefectly good ATV. Otherwise the statement about wanting more power than the Rincon can give is bullshit. The majority of ATVers in the world have and own ATVs under 500cc and that is a fact. I still have my Rincon not because its a Honda or because its a Rincon or because I'm a so called "Fan" I own it because I never had to do anything to the piece of **** since I bought it in 2003. No other ATV has the same technology and its perfect for the work I do around the house and the trails I ride. Once in a while and I mean .5 percent of the time I come accross a mud pit where I wish it had higher ground clearence and big mud tires but to change the nature of my ATV just for the.5 percent is ridiculous.


I swear-if I hear one more stupid comment about people giving up the Rincon for more power!!!

Impeach The US Government!
Why, because it no longer stands for Americans!

Government is not the answer to our problems, government is the problem!

Taxation is the antithesis of freedom.

I totally agree with the, "if it ain't broke don't fix it" mantra. There is one issue that is not specific to the Rincon I wish Honda would fix..... the Cammo issue. I really wanted a cammo rinny but the salesman talked me out of it. I have only ever heard from one person that their cammo held up but he never put his through the mud.

Any chance they will ever fix the problem?

I don't know how you would fix it... Your inner knees rub and wear on it. Add abrasive mud and it's going to happen sooner or later.

If that's where it's rubbing off a clear piece of mylar over that area would go a long way towards fixing it.

Mine is 6 years old, has all size riders using it including youngins and I can't find a bad spot on it. I wash it once a year with mild car wash soap, let mother nature clean it the rest of the time, that is the reason I bought the camo with a flat finish and not a shiney red one. It isn't made for show and shine events. If you have to power wash it plan on having a tan one within a year or two.
