The Foreman is pretty bulletproof, so just look over it good and check the normal wear items, such as axles, brakes, and bearings. Since it's the es model, ride it and make sure the electric shift works good and make sure the gear indicator isn't flashing. About the only major problem that I have heard about the Foreman 500 is first gear going out, but this must be rare, because I've never actually seen it.I am looking at a 06 foreman es and was wondering if there is anything to look out for. it has 700ish miles. what would be a fair price? thanks
Yeah, if it's just ES, then it has actual gears and a shift motor that shifts for you. If it's auto and ES, like the Rancher 400 or the 500 Rubicon, then it don't really have the gears and would be a hydrostatic CVT transmission.do the es transmissions have actual gears with a electric motor that shifts for you or is it more like the pos 400 at that I am looking at getting rid of?
