Project Honda Rincon

Well i bought a 2005 Honda Rincon 650 from a buddy of mine, LONG story short the motor was in a box and the rear end was froze up. It needed a new front axle and both rear axles needed to be replaced. The Suspension was shot from sitting in a shed for 2 years. Other than all that everything including the motor SHOULD be operational.

This week was the first time i finally got some i quality time with her. I got the rear end taken out and the new one is ready to go in "without axles" the new rear suspension was put on and i have the new front shocks put on. Also i took the motor apart and did a BIG RED gear reduction kit that knocks the gear ratio down 25% so i can run my bigger tires. Ill post up some progress photos and a price list as i get it done. The rear axles are going to be the last thing i do because the rear end is the last thing i have to put in and the biggest expense on her about 150 an axle.

Used rincon 650 in a box- $500
new rear end and motor came with it- free
rear shocks brand new on ebay- $80
Slightly used front shocks on ebay- $50
14in ss wheels $220
27x10 and 27x12 maxxis zillas- $520
gear reduction parts- $120
New axles for the rear $230
repairs on front axles- $100
Misc body parts $50
New Battery $100
Misc bolts, washers, and shit $150 or maybe more... i had alot of missing stuff
new brake pads all around $100
thats it so far

and for pics.
Motor before i cleaned it up some


How i picked it up (you can see one of the front axles is missing



Gear reduction in progress


New tires


and the wheels

It looks kinda dirty in the second picture because its been sitting in a shed for two years, the plastics and everything actually clean up pretty nice.

yeah i have a CRF150R got it in ’09 to start racing. raced a few races than uncle died and we had to deal with the house on weekends instead. want to get a 250and get back in to it. we have a ‘03recon 250. i have flipped it like4 times and i have crashed it in to a fence, jumped it. you name it i prob have done it on that thing. the plastic has some scratches but not even one crack. i’m on the gas 95% of the time i ride other 5% i’m locking the brakes up. have an ’04 rancher 350 4wd i ride like hell as well flipped it once. if i did not tell you you would never guess what i have but them thru. i clean them up all the time and do most the work on them my self.

Eventful week with the Rincon, motor back in the frame, front and rear suspension was replaced, greased up all the link and all that good stuff for the A-arms. I finally found the exhaust and hopefully this weekend i will get the carb cleaned out and get the bad boy fired up. Then all i have to do is wait for the axles to get here and i can finish it up.

finally got to work on her again, new axles installed on the rear got the wheels and tires on her finally, exhaust on, and the air box all set up. I have to get a key made on monday and she "SHOULD" start. Had to order a few new bolts for the rear end and A-arms. Hopefully tomorrow i can get the plastics all put together and see how many bolts im missing. Then maybe ill work on the snorkel and start the overhaul on the front end of her.

Rode it for the first time today. wouldnt shift gears for a second but a quick troubleshoot and i got it going. I rode it and cycled through the gears.

Im going to start the snorkel tomorrow and re-doing the seat cover. happy it runs now.

Also updated pricing on stuff, i came out right at 2200ish bucks for a functional four wheeler

I had the same problem, on the display it flashed ESP 7 times and i looked in the service manual and it told me a solenoid was acting up and i found it and the connector was loose , it was stuck in second gear till i got it plugged in. Ill post some pictures when i clean it up a bit and get the seat done tomorrow.

yeah recon does not have the display like the rancher. but it does have 5 lights one for each gear. i think it would always mess up when i down shifted. don’t remember. i just used the back up shifter that is back wear tool kit is.

Took it to Alto OHV park and she did work! I lost four wheel drive when i broke a front axle (it was shit anyways) the second day. Ran through the carb and put an inline filter from the gas tank because i was getting sand from there and she runs like a scalded ape. even in 2wd she has plenty of torque to push those 28's. The oil temp light keeps coming and an i have a slow water leak from a weep hole by the water pump so im gonna have to run through that and see what the deal is. Lastly the last night it started running like shit and dying so i stopped for a second and realized that the carb was constantly dumping fuel. So my guess is the float was sticking, another small fix to make

I've got an 07 680 rincon that I love... You should check out rinconriders.com, they have tons of info and are very willing to help spend your money. Nice work on the build.
