2004 honda ftr500fA

I got a atv from a friend the other day all the stickers are gone. On the frame theres a tag that says 2004 Honda trx 500 fa. Is the 500 the motor size? I think he said it was a foreman. Have not been able to find a serial #. Thanks, James

Yeah, that's a 500 Foreman Rubicon. I don't think they made a regular 500 Foreman until 2005. The Foreman Rubicon is auto and electric shift. The regular 500 Foreman is foot shift or electric shift, but no auto.

The VIN number is located on the front of the frame, behind the bumper.

Most 4-wheeler problems are caused by a loose nut connecting the handlebars and the seat!!

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.
