1997 honda foreman

6 posts in this topic

Found one with about 1500 miles 400 hours. Seems to be in good shape. Is this a good atv to buy used. Are they as bullet proof as the 300's or should I keep looking. thanks

I know a guy who went from a 300 to a Foreman, and now a 450 Kodiak. I witnessed all 3 machines. He told me that the 300 was actually faster than the Foreman. Both were great work horses and didn't give him hardly any trouble. He worked both of the Hondas pretty good. Now he has the Kodiak and doesn't do too much work with atv's anymore. I think he said the Foreman topped out at about 45, the 300 was over 50 mph. Not a big deal, but that is all the info I have on the two. Myself, I don't care for any atv that you have to shift, unless it would be solely for work purposes. There are a ton of Hondas out there, so that has to tell you something. They are just not my first choice.

Honda has very good 4 wheelers and just about everything else they make. I have a couple friends that run Honda 4 wheelers and haven't had any issues with them. I have a Yamaha, but am going to look at a Honda for my next quad.

Well I bought it. It seems to be real solid. Fires right up. Shifts smooth, and rides great. Now just have to tune it up a bit.

If it's in decent shape and a good price, I wouldn't think twice about it. They are reliabe units and should give you years of service.

    • The US gets Assange this way. Not difficult to understand.
    • It has a slight liberal bias: all major news media lies between the political ideology of a typical Democrat and a typical Republican. No outlet is going to intentionally dissuade 30% of the market, it's just bad business. With regards to Trump though, he has made an enemy of the press. It has little to do with his political affiliation and everything to do with his confrontational attitude. See this "come at me bro" of a statement from the Press Corps. Note they welcome Trump to sue them for the so called "fake news", probably because they are confident in the accuracy of their articles. Also realize that it is entirely possible for something to be accurate and biased: which is probably all you will see in Trump coverage from here until the end of his Presidency    
    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
    • Because you are banking on not having to pay it back in your lifetime and are perfectly fine with passing that debt down to future generations which allows you to live a better lifestyle at their expense.  Some of us don't think it'e ethical to pass debt onto generations who will have no say in the process.
