  1. Did you sort your issue out in the end rob?
  2. Check out jeepwm69 link and see if that’s what your after. I have to ask… what happened to your original shaft?
  3. Hey rob, a good friend of mine over in the USA told me you need some assistance sourcing parts… I may be able to help you. First of all, what year is your 420, any idea? If you don’t know, take a photo of the frame (vin) number and post it here, we can find out the year via that. sam
  4. Hey TB, suzuki here dont last at all, spares are expensive amd compared to honda they just sont live uo to the daily abuse. Bear in mind, service schedules are very rarely followed here, they tend to get serviced when they malfunction, hence Honda and Yamaha leading the way here in England. I rate suzuki dirt bikes highly, always gauranteed to get the hole shot when racing however, and again, honda always seem to finish first.
  5. Any honda is the way to go, 100%. I prefer the earlier models with no electronics, its less to go wrong and easier to repair and maintain. However, you can get a foreman 520 brand new for just under 5k here in the UK. If you maintain it as per the schedule it will last you a LONG time. Dare i say this on a Honda forum.... Dont shy away from Yamaha, in my opinion they are equally as good as Honda nowadays.
  6. Apolgies for the late reply.. So, in my opinion forget all modern Hondas.. My father had a 2012 foreman and i had a 450 foreman, the 450 hands down was more versatile, practical and user friendly. Modern ATVs in the UK cost a small fortune to maintain properly. Pre 2000 is the better option, in my opinion of course. As for the road legalality side... If its road registered and has a logbook (V5) you have no issue whatsoever. Odds on youll buy an 'agricultural' registered atv. Theres loads fpr sale! All you need to do is change the taxation class on the logbook and add lights, indicators etc.. basically it has to pass an MOT. Agricultural taxation class covers you up to a 10 mile radius of your address, maybe you could swing it somehow?! Hope this helps buddy.
  7. Yep we call it the same here too, he'll get what's deserved eventually
  8. Bite your tongue and wait it out, he'll screw himself over eventually buddy. For starters he's a meth head so he's already killing himself, secondly he'll keep on thieving to find his drug addiction but eventually he'll thieve off the wrong person and end up getting shot or seriously injured!
  9. I'd say bad battery or bad ground personally. No mention of piston ring condition though...? Low compression is a possibility, as is timing.
  10. Right... Apologies for the late reply! I had a 2nd gen with a bent frame and fitted all of my 04 parts to a 1st gen frame. You need to notch (V) the cross member (pictured above) to clear the front diff. If you use a Gen1 diff you need the Gen1 shaft, if you use the gen2 diff you need the gen2 shaft. You need to move the motor back to fit the diff and shaft into place if you use the Gen2 diff. I'm not sure how you'd get on if you fit a gen2 selectable diff to a gen1, I was always led to believe that the CDI had something to do with its control, I can't confirm that though. However, I see no reason why you couldn't swap the CDI and harness along with the gen2 diff.
  11. Hahaha... Lucas is good and has a very good reputation however, they work with automotive manufacturers and provide goods to spec which gives them a !*y reputation lol... Can't take any credit away from Chevy though, they have the V8 world taken up in my eyes.. I'd love an LS3, feel free to ship me one folks !
  12. Oh yeah the rover V8 is junk, buics cast off haha... The t box was right though, don't change the subject !
  13. My point exactly buddy... Auto locking centre diff (viscous) or manual locking. All gears, no chains... Land Rover got it right from day one... About the only thing they got right though ! 😂😂
  14. Why not run a centre differential? Such as land rover for example? It works very well indeed. The best to date was the viscous diff lock fitted to the later classic range rovers 🙂 We have a few jeeps available to us here in the UK and the T boxes always fail for some reason...
  15. A faster front diff ratio is perfect of your on trials or off road all the time. The slightly faster ratio gives better steering, especially if you have spools, lsds or lockers. The Icelandic off-road/formula off-road guys all run a faster ratio up front to aid steering 😉 Realistically.... It's only going to work in a relatively high HP truck when your skinny pedal is to the floor!!
