I bought my 08 foreman from a guy who won it in a raffle. I paid $5000 for it, which was a great price, but i think you still got the better deal. ;)

My question to you would be, why?

The foreman isn't a sport utility, and it will already climb a tree in 1st gear and has a powerful 500 engine, so if you want speed then sell it and buy a sport bike.

The minute you start moding it, then you are limiting the audience for any potential resale, so just be sure you know what you really want in a bike before you start slicing and dicing it.

If you want to upgrade the power, get a new exhuast system, air filter, and adjust the air/fuel ratio. I'm not sure if your model is carbed or EFI. I would start there, if you get the right stuff you can see a huge increase in HP.

Wow, lucky ticket. Welcome to the group and I am always open to new ideas. I belong to other groups for other bikes I own and have picked up some wonderful pointers from their members.
