Hi I have a 2000 Honda foreman 450es that's in good shape and runs great. I'm only looking to sell because I'm buying a new one and have 3 atv and 2 dirt bikes in my shed including this one and won't have room for the new one. Im not a huge fan of selling anything on that's why I priced it the way I did hoping for a quick sale.
Now for the atv it's a Honda it will run forever but the solid rear axle kills my back. I've replaced the swingarm bearing, rear wheel bearings, right rear hub, front brake master cylinder, front bumper from a 400, carb kit, spark plug, fixed the es shifting problem, new battery and more I also have a pair of head lights and a 4x2x4 rebuild kit that I haven't got to.
The good, runs good, shifts good, tires good everything works it's a basically jump on and ride machine
The not so good the winch and bag don't come with it. it needs tie rod ends ( I plan to buy but I'm being honest) and the battery needs a good charge because I haven't been riding it. It's not a cheap battery it's a fully sealed one. the mileage is high 7,726 but only 1087 hr so this wasn't a machine that was used for plowing or stuck in mud pits. Look around and you'll see what I mean when you find a machine with 1000 miles but 400 hours.Also the carb might need some fine tuning. It runs and rides good but if idling cold it sometimes dies after a bit.
I might be interested in partial trades but mainly look for cash so I can add to the down payment of a new one. If this fails I'll just trade it in.
