    Mine cost $500, but a mate paid and I did a fair bit of WOF welding work for him so it didn't cost me cash for that bit. Spent about $500 on replacing a few parts and fixing some chassis rot along with a few hours labour cleaning out damn near every switch etc and it's reliable and going well. Been stacked at one stage when a trailer got the run on and spun the bike, so the chassis isn't the straightest but for what I'm doing (acre lifestyle block mini tractor dragging trailers and chippers etc) it's good as gold.

    If you can't get something to fit the bill for $5k, I contest you aren't actually looking!!!

    Hey if you fit larger wheels does it bugger up the gearing much . ... how much larger can you go?

    I only went one size up in overall diameter 25x8 - 12 on the front and 25x10 - 11 on the rear. Goes great, gearing is fine. First gear is still very low.

    Tried a new one three years ago, pretty big bike for a 450, same frame and size as the 570 (which rode a lot better). Carrier height was quite high when lifting something on to it. I'd probably go for a Honda 420 if looking at that capacity bike (if they have the rear diff issue sorted now...mine was a 2010) or the Kodiak 450 but the kodiak is really working if you want to push it past 50km/h.

    I have a 2016 power steer manual trx420 that will be for sale very shortly.
    I see your in South Island though, so probably no good to youÖ
