I know several of you have followed Don's (Bearman) post on ATV Frontier on their research on Rincon products and his posts about some breakage. You can see it at this link.
Don't worry about Diamond G. Their modules are going to take FOREVER to come out. Highlifter is working on an ignition module that (that they are hoping to get out very soon they said) and they have programed it or something so it can make max power on the low end without breaking parts. I guess it boosts the timing after transmission engagement so nothing breaks.
Boy that post over on ATVF is about as non-specific as you can get, isn't it. "Yes we have had some breakage". Ok, what broke, and what were they doing to break it before I get to excited after reading that. I'll betcha John Force could break our family car too, LOL.
OK,somebody come out with an ignition module,thats what I want, a machine thats got enough power to break stuff at the flick of the throttle! Dont hold back, didnt take me long to realize that I made a $7000 dollar mistake the day I really got to ride my new rincon for the first time and realized how disappointed I was to learn it had no power for a 650, especially low end. After a pipe,jetting kit, filter,cam, and 12 and a half to 1 piston I can finally out run a Grizzly but I still get eat up on low end hard core mud. So if any body comes out with a ignition module, dont hold back, turn it loose, that may just be the missing link!!!!!!!!!!!1
sometimes i wonder how much is too much,i mean i'm a big guy i carry alot of stuff on my rincon and it has yet to run out of power on any of our rides,you would think in 2100 miles with all you read about it,i would have felt that need for more,i mean you only have so much traction,i can break loose my atr's,big horns,mudlites,589's or any other tire i have tried with no problems..if it's going to break parts,in my mind its to much,i bought my honda for reliability, not to be the fastest most powerful atv out there.i like to know i will make it home and not have to visit the dealer after every ride..
Low end isn't my issue... the machine has "adequate" power but mine has absolutely no top end. It has never hit the rev limiter in its life, and won't. Either the CDI is bad or the cam is flat or something.
When I race it against my Grizzly, the Grizzly kicks its ass completely and totally. And this is even with a heavier rider on the Grizzly. By 50 mph (the top speed of my Rincon), the Grizzly is a good 6-7 quad lengths ahead.
Although, now that I think of it, the thing won't wheelie either. A friend tried (one who knows how to wheelie) and got the front wheels up about 4" but that's all it'd do.
You guys who say you don't like the speedy/sporty side of your Rincon have wasted your money. That's what it's all about, if you bought it for a pure utility (which it sounds like you did) you have made a mistake. Because that it is not!
Hey, to each their own. So far, I like everything I have done with my Rincon and feel it will serve my purposes just fine for all my future uses. I get it up to about 64 when called for and it can handle all the mud, trails, loading, and about anything else I can throw at it. Just a whole lot of fun. I don't really have a priority to do wheelies or go faster then 64 or beat anyone out of the hole. But if that's what someone wants, go for it. With plenty of cash you can probably get it to do whatever you want.
I've had mine for less than 3 weeks. On week one it would do low 60's, but now it hardly makes mid 50's. A wheely is out of the question. I asked the dealer and he says valve adjustment, but other threads I've read say valves made no difference. I've got the right oil, I haven't messed with the carb or the air cleaner. I thought about trying a new plug. Anyone with ideas please send advice!
Every ATV Addict wants more Power... Remeber, the Rinny is a happy mix between a utility and a sport ATV. You cannot have the best of both worlds, but you can have a happy mix. Enjoy what you have or get something more geared towards what you want to do with it (Mud Riding Low End or Trail Riding High End).
Just got mine Rin back from a value job and it made a hugh difference in response and speed. I had just over 2500 miles on it. Also added the Detroit locker and whow what a great addition. Just as others have stated, "it mules like a mule in the mug".. Too bad this was't added at the time Honda pu this ride out. No longer are the Grizzies I ride with controlling the mud runs.
Hey Rinny4Life (Play hard, ride safe????)Posting a picture like this speaks volumes about your desire to live./ Wear a helmet, when it comes over on you the head makes a nice cushion, and if it happens to have a helmut on it, the damage will only be minor. Live long a ride hard, but for heavens sake, protect yourself!
Good Observation Oilcan. Luckily for me my wife and I always were our helmets being experianced riders and all. I did however remove my helmet just to pose for this quick picture. My helmet did save my life one time, no questions about it (another day, another story). As for your picture, better you than me. I'm to scared to have 650 lbs sitting on top of me, but I do my share of cutting up though.
