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.

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
I have to DISAGREE with this one..

I have had MANY buddies with the RINCON, and it performed VERY well in the water... He also has the 420 for his son, and it ALSO does very well in the water....

Now, the ONLY ting in the rincon that it is lacking is a LOW GEAR.. The power is there, but it is a 3 speed tranny, and is NOT geared NEAR low enough..

For what this guy is talking, the rincon will definantly suit his needs....
And if he wants to water ride, he will NOT have a problem.... And if he wants the added insurance for water riding, then throw some snorks on it...

Here is a vid of a rincon doing what a rincon does...

Here is a few more honda pics in the water...




And here is matts 680 rincon, now, it IS running right here, but the hole is SOOO deep.. They floated his across and mine also.. I barely touched the bottom standing up, and I'm around 6'3...


And here is a couple in the mud......




And here is a couple all cleaned up. with some HEFTY tires on it... Those things are HEAVY... man, I was surprised on how heavy they were....
And there is snorks on it now......

It would have died for sure. I don't think anyone mentioned Honda's in general don't like water just the Rincon. I was unaware of the dieing in water problem till I read this post. My friend has one and crossed the small creed at Red Creek and it died for no reason in the water. The water wasn't very deep at all and he was on the throttle. Now I'm putting two and two together. I personally like Honda's for the reliability, but that's about it. If they were to put the Rubicon Transmission in a Rincon then they would have a good bike. The Rubicon is 5 speed with lower gears and the Rincon is only 3. When you add bigger tires to the Rincon it just throws the gearing way off. Why Honda's doesn't see the need for a change is beyond me. It's a simple fix. Otherwise a great bike with monsterious ground cleareance when lifted.

What size tires are you going to put on it? If you're trail riding and not going to put anything bigger than a 27" or maybe 28", then you will have plenty of power for what you want. As far as ride, I've heard it called the cadillac of atvs. They also say that a programmer will really wake up the rincon.

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.

Yep, I even had to on my can-am..... Not at first, but after the first creek season, yeah... HAD to have it.
It was not a question on need or WANT to put it on the polaris...OMG



I guess I am just mis-imformed about all this HONDA and water problems.... But I dont think so.. There are MANY MANY honda's around here, and heck, to be honest, that is about ALL you see in the creeks in Ky... Atleast Clarks river, Soldier Creek, and Wilson Creek......... Everybody look at you funny for having a belt driven....

But they look at your BEHIND, cause they are always behind!!!! LOL:eek:

i have seen a couple of things i didnt like.

1. Exhaust is turned down to where water can get in it easily.
2. There is electrical wiring that ive heard if you get it under water it will shut off, and that goes back to the first problem.

I have two brutes and a 2007 rincon. You can't go wrong. It's the best bike I have ever owned. It has 27 xtr's on it and it turns them fine. It just will not pull like a brute. My ex rides it and she wouldn't take anything else. It is snorkeled and sealed up tight. She tries to cross every pond we see. Never had any stalling issues. When I am hunting or just crusing, I hop on the rinny. We just like the brutes because they are wheelie making machines that will pull anything. I think we have a perfect combo. The Rincon rides super nice and the brute will pull everyone out.

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

If u put a power commander or the hmf re programmer it will take care of the idle situation.
