how deep can you take a '11 rancher FPM??

im wondering how deep in just water a rancher with ps can go thats completely stock?? i dont submarine it but theres an island to ride on at the far end of the island i ride on but cant get to it by quad, i can walk to it, the waters like 2.5 ft right now, its still going down and eventually be dry sand for drag racing quads. thanks.

When i got my foreman they said that it can go through about a foot or so. That is what they say that honda recommends or say that they are not ment to go deeper then that.

Without a snorkel,and a fully sealed air supply,I'd stay out of anything beyond the tops of my tires,and especially if it was brand new like yours..I've seen people with bone stock bikes take em deep enough that they were water wheelien,and they were ok for the short time they did it,but seeing as your warranty goes out the window with water ingestion,the call is yours to make especially if you're not good at water wheelien..

My exact thoughts, too. Don't take a chance on destroying a new ATV.

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

Your intake is just under the rear of the fuel tank which is about seat height, but as your pushing along through that deep of water you will be sure to get some splashing up into the intake. Water wheelies are fun as I've done quite a few myself to cross something a little deeper than I should, but I agree with the above, don't take chances with a new machine, and set it up for that type of riding with a snorkel to save your engine,,,,and your wallet.
