if ur worried bout low end, get the big red gears for it and be done. u may not go fast after that tho lol. as far as hittin a hole and dieing, sounds like some waterproofin needed to be done.
I have to DISAGREE with this one..WATCH THE RINCONS,,,,i have seen alot of rincons before and all of them die when they hit water,,,,,if your cruzin out the trail and splash a puttle it dies becuz they have an auto shut off senser in them,,,,,i just dnt like them, 2 of them couldnt pull my friends recon out of a mud hole
Oh and as far as water goes, get some di-electric grease for all the electrical connections and spark plug boot (same for any bike). I've seen rincons going chest deep no problems.
If u put a power commander or the hmf re programmer it will take care of the idle situation.my sons wife rides a rinny w29.5 laws, lift, j&e 680 piston kit, mud buster cam, dyna box, hmf pipe(toooo loud). the only problem i see with it is the idle has to be set to be set low for it to go into gear, an it will die a lot sitting on dry ground when you shift into gear, as far as low end power the mods help this machine alot, but now quite enough, planning on doing gear reduction soon, then i think it will be alright
ok first off someone i think it was nightowl said that the newer rincons have torque converter well i have a 2003 650 the first year they were put out and mine has a torque converter second off this is for bruteforcerider13 i have 13 other friends that ride rincons and its a mixture of 650's & 680"s some stock some modded and then 2 that are modded to the maxx i guess you would say custom bikes out of all the years i have rode honda not 1 rincon have i seen stall when it get wel or is over the rack in water idk where your from or where the bikes came from that are giving yall this kinda trouble but they must have some kinda defect my bike is all custom and i will put it up aginst any other bike out there especially the brutes and the outlanders or renigade this is why i built the rincon just so i could have the bragging right as to say i have a honda that will walk all over your brute or can am noone believes me untill its time to pay there lost dues lol i get more satisfaction from seeing the look on there face tho its priceless HONDA "NO BELT MAFIA"WATCH THE RINCONS,,,,i have seen alot of rincons before and all of them die when they hit water,,,,,if your cruzin out the trail and splash a puttle it dies becuz they have an auto shut off senser in them,,,,,i just dnt like them, 2 of them couldnt pull my friends recon out of a mud hole
