Welcome Mike , not trying to be mean , just it might help someone else to not make the mistake you did , you missed the biggest tip on the forum = stay away from ES atv's ----------- I am sure there are reasons for someone selling a 2014 ES that are legit , like losing their job , getting sick , wanting a bigger one , bought it and found he has no where to ride it , but I'd bet a nickel to a dollar that performance and problems was the reason for dumping it ------ we had a 420 ES with us this weekend and he is no fun to ride with , "Hold Up" is all I heard all day and night long

I hunt mainly white tail deer and turkey. Deer season just ended and I'm counting the days until turkey season. When I get bored in the off season we unfortunately have plenty of coyotes to keep us busy. And the occasional bobcat.

Yeah I read about the ES problem after my purchase. I've also noticed quite a few people still buy them and have good luck with them. I also happened to find a fix on here so I'll hold onto that until I have problems.

Thanks guys.
to me it is so messed up with ES , Honda is pushing it on us , I was at the dealership Saturday that sells 5 brands and the major of what I seen was either belt driven or ES , two things I want no part of , it is like they are trying to phase foot shift out , to me it makes the bike less aggressive , even when they are working right , there is a lag in time on up and down shifts , enough to make you lose your momentum and you wish didn't shift it , not that I am speed racer but I need the PRM's to be rolling to keep rolling -----

Welcome to the forum and have exactly the same unit. The one piece of advice I would offer get a battery tender and keep the unit topped off all the time because the ES is sensitive to a low battery.

you are right about ES bikes' battery needing a full charge , I have seen that first hand ------------ I made up a mini set of jumper cables that I carry in my rear cargo box and have given jumps many times -------
