Great Trail & work machine, rides smooth from what I hear... not the best in the mud or for pulling anything heavy. I think the low end is lacking some grunt.

Great trail machine, look really good & handle the same, but no locker & no low range! I know quite a few folks with them, but most are either trail or water riders! Some mud them, but have spent Lots & Lots of $$ to get them a decent enough power band to spin the Big meats! Hope this helps & good luck Brandon

What year did you have, I have heard that they have put a torque converter on the newer ones and it helped out with the low end power. I also have read that the fuel injectors helped out. I really am looking for something to trail ride and do a little climbing and mudding but mostly will just be trail riding. I had a artic cat 400 a few years ago and very rarly did I use the low gear, and it usually did not help and I had to use the winch to get out anyway.

Sounds like you've done your homework & researched it! I think from what you describe you'd be pretty happy with the rincon. It would ride much better than the rubicon.

What are you looking for in that rincon? Cuz I'm not trying to talk my 420 up or anything but when you hear 420 you think its just a low powered small atv..and in reality its a very powerful bike for the engine size. I have a lot of stuff done to mine right now but as it was sitting stock with 26's on it, it still had a lot of low end. Bruteman can vouch for the power of the 420. And I'm really impressed on it holding up to my torture :saevilw:

I am looking mainly to trail ride and do a little mud riding. I was in a motorcycle wreck a few years ago at work and can't do anything to extreme so I am looking for a good riding ATV. I will pull a small trailer around my land but that will be maybe 5 times a year. Mostly I am looking for a ATV to trail ride and just get out in the woods and have a little fun. I read that the newer Rincon do have an engine break now.
Like I said I had a 400 artic cat and it had plenty of power and was a blast to ride but I did not like the way the automatic trans sounded and the engine break would about throw you off the front if you were not ready for it. I ahve heard a lot of good things about the Rincon except a few bad things about it getting stuck and not being able to climb hills. I would like to know what it got stuck in and what hills it had trouble on but they never answered. Theres a big differnce in going through some mud and what I see on this site as mud riding. There is also a big deffernce in hills i have seen people climb and ones that I would climb. So I am trying to find out if it is that much under powered for normal riding on hills and mud or if they are talking about the extreme stuff like on this site?

Nightowl from what Ive seen around here, you shouldnt have any problems. I rode w/ some guys in Eutaw a few weeks ago and no one out there had anything special... The majority of them were running stock machines, with the exception of aftermarket tires, and they were almost all light to moderate agressive tires.

From reading your post i would think you would love the Rincon. Its a super rider friendly bike. I've ridden several and they do just fine for normal ATV use.


While the Rincon don't have " Brute power" it still has plenty. I can assure you of that.
The 420's are nice as well.

Me and my buddies called it the rincon stall, as soon as the water hit the motor or if you popped the throttle in deep water/mud it would go dead it was almost like it would vapor lock itself

I'm pretty sure he just has plans to use this as a trail machine, no water or hard mudding.
