You are watching: 2005 honda foreman 500 top speed


My 2002 Rubicon 500 through ES has been exceptionally low top top acceleration and top rate lately. The motor idles and runs great it just has no power lately. It won"t go over 30 mph and likewise struggles to get there. Ns just had the valves adjusted by the dealer yet that didn"t solve the issue. The quad will yet pull a truck out of the dirt in low gear. Lengthy story short, the low end power is there yet top end and acceleration is lacking. What could be the source of this problem?

Sir: Welcome to the forum. Begin with your carburetor and also fuel. You may need to adjust or rebuild your carb. Likewise, make certain that you space using new, fresh fuel. Also, make certain that whatever in her fuel mechanism (tank, filters, etc.) space clean and enabling sufficient quantities of fuel to flow at higher rpm.

Sounds come me like you have actually the machine in low range. Height speed in low variety is 30-35 km. If you are placing the shifter to the full forward position, your in low range. One click back from over there is High.

Sounds to me like possibly the main jet is not allowing enough fuel as soon as under load(too small,partially clogged)...Main jet go not influence idle,or sluggish speed riding below 1/3,or 1/4 throttle,and may be providing enough added fuel to gain it to wind the end decently in the really low aligned low range,but not sufficient in high...

You men want come know just how I resolved this problem? I sold the quad! ns can"t believe out of every you honda guys, noone had mentioned anything around the hondamatic infection on the rubicon gift a item of crap. The tranny to be on the means out and also I to be quoted right around 2k because that a brand-new one. Appears that this is a usual issue v these quads, and I am a small disappointed the no one even thought to lug that up. Well long story short, the Rubicon is gone and I have actually purchased a like brand-new 2000 Yamaha Kodiak 400. I provided Honda a chance and also boy did it (and you guys) permit me down. :dry:
I to be also very surprised that no one was able to diagnose her tranny issues, vision unseen, based upon the information you provided in two short posts.

Not certain where this sense of entitlement and the require for prompt gratification come from.

As for Honda, I provided it a chance a what a complete let down.
