I have a 2008 Honda Rincon that is great shape. We have always taken the best care of the engine. A weld underneath recently came undone and bent the frame. We do not drive it hard at all and it was a fluke thing. The engine is in great shape and we might be parting out the whole thing. If you are interested you can email @ [email protected]Our 05 rincon is running bad lately we think we need a new engine and transmission but don't know where to find one does anyone know where to find this?
His best bet would probably be to buy the whole machine and swap everything off of the 2008 onto the 2005 frame.I have to agree with the rebuild route, unless your motor has completely grenaded rebuilding is going to be the cheapest way to go. If you do decide to go with the engine above, remember that your 05 is a carb motor and the 08 is fuel injected, it want be just a straight swap.
