Wayne is actually a cool guy. Met him in person and had some time to hang out with him and a few other top powersport guys at the talon event.
I think you all would like him.

Well tell him to come ride with us, he’ll still catch grief for the 70’s facial hair.

I've mentioned it several times, but "Wayney jack" participated in 2 Peterson's 4 Wheel & Off Road's Ultimate Adventure treks. 2016 and 2017, I think. The videos are out there. Turns out the 500 didn't get a bed for a reason, I guess.

All right I've been checking in all morning. Surely this event can't still be happening what's the word?!?!

It wouldn't take him 2 hours to list all the Bold new colors...would it?!?! :D:D:D

Check in later tonight. I think the times were posted earlier in the thread. I'm sure there will be a youtube link to watch from here.

Honda hasn't had a OHC engine utility ATV since the Foutrax 300, except for the rincon. And it's not truly OHC, since it sits under the head.

The lack of a timing chain/tensioner that goes bad is a plus I think. I don't believe I've ever replaced a timing chain or tensioner on a cam in block engine. Unless I was in the bottom end already and just covering my bases.

The Rincon is known for bad tensioners and replacing a chain can be a hunk of change.
Honda has had troubles with tensioners since at least mid to late 80s (pos hydraulic tensioner in 1000f prime example). All my buddies that dragraced bought manual tensioners first thing. Chopping that throttle closed at redlines kills them.
