Hi there folks, new member, just bought a 02 Foreman S at a NH state surplus auction last week. In pretty good shape for a 20 year old machine, looking forward to playing with it.

Thanks! I bought this one on a fluke, seemed really clean for a 20 year old machine, took a chance as it was not running, but a fresh battery and gasoline and it runs out fine.

Other than the seat cover, seems clean to me. Shows 260 hours, 1021 miles.

Yes, a New Hampshire State Surplus Property auction. They had a bunch of F&G Yamahas, but they were pretty rough, heavy use, broken plastic etc..  The help there said this wasn't a F&G owned ATV, but it does have a NH State Property tag on it. No idea what it was used for. Wasn't even in the market for an ATV, but you know how auctions go. Quick question, I only got one ignition key with it, are they generic, or do I have to have one cut?

'' IF '' you can get a key cut from any honda dealer ?, they are your best shot. you would be better off just buying a brand new ignition switch from HONDA MND YOU !!..and replacing the whole switch, then have 2 new oem keys.

Keep in mind when you transport it, don’t tie it down by the carriers. Use good ratchet straps, like 1.5 to 2 inches, and fasten to the frame. Frame won’t bend but carriers only take 40-50 lbs.

i use Harley Davidson ratchet straps with soft hooks.
