Cool Rincon gear reduction or not?

Hello everyone,
I'm Ken, and new to this group. I am looking for some feedback on doing a gear reduction on my 04 - 650 Rincon. Well....... its not actually the stock quad anymore. I'm converting it into a 2-seater side by side. The engine is in my kitchen now and I will be cleaning it up, working the carb, etc. This is the best time to work the trans. I will also be upgrading the shock springs. The vehicle is 16" wider (custom fab long travel suspension) and 27" longer (sub-frame extension). My target weight is 900lb or less, but you never know when fabricating.

Do you actually have that conversion done on your own quad? I keep seeing lads on this forum saying to do this conversion but none of them seem to have it done themselves and the lads that do have it done dont all seem to like it. So why are people that dont have it done telling others to do it

Thanks..... I understand that what you intend to do with it and what you are running for tires has a lot to do with power consumption. This is my first build just to get my feet wet, so I will be 4-wheeling, but NO thrashing. As for time and energy..... married for 23 years - two teenagers, divorced now for 4 and just ramping up! As I said, the engine is on a rolling stand in my kitchen/dining room - lol.

Yes quadder you could read under my quote everything I've done to my bike. I did install it myself it takes about 6 1/2 hours. And it is a must for larger tires

I did the BRGR on my Rincon. Twice. Because I changed the engine. Its not that complicated. The hardest part is getting the shift mechanism correct. But once you see how it works its super easy.

based on the fact that you are adding weight to the overall vehicle and another person to it, I would add the BRGR. You'll want the extra grunt down low for climbing hills and basic overall perfomance of the quad. WIth out it the extra weight is going to make it feel like a slug.

Look at it like your creating your own big red and you definitely don't see guys put the rincon gears in those. lol
