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.

    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood.
