Foreman 450 IRS

I am getting all the parts to do an irs on my 98 foreman 450 and i have one question. Does anyone know what to do fo a drive shaft? I cant find anything on what people did. Im using all rincon parts so i dont know if i can take the yokes apart and combine the 450 and rincon yokes? If anyone knows can you please shine some light on this for me. Thank you very much.

    I seen people taking the Rincon driveshaft and welding the 450 front yoke onto it. I have also seen some people going to machine shops and having a new shaft cut with the right splines for the 450 yoke on it. Main thing is if you weld it is to make sure it's as balanced as you can get it.

    I was hoping to not have to weld it but if i have to at least i have a guy who is a good welder. So there is no way to take the yokes apart on these and use one side from each?

    Not that I have seen or heard of. I have a very good friend who has built many irs conversations and all have been done like I said previously.

    Now would anyone know the length of the rincon rear shock? I cant seem to find the specs on it anywhere. I need to find a shock equivalent to it that i can get the yellow highlifter springs so they match the fronts on my foreman

    Now can anyone tell me if both rear axles for a rincon are the same? They have different part numbers but all of them on ebay say left or right.

    I almost have everything in to start mocking up the irs for my foreman but i have another question. Does anyone know if the foreman driveshaft is thicker round than the rincon driveshaft? I havent torn the foreman apart yet so i cant see the difference. Thank you again

    I have the rincon shaft here and just looking at pictures the foreman shaft almost looks bigger. Maybe i will just order another foreman shaft go from there. When i cut them and weld them together does it have to be perfectly balanced?

    Not so much balanced the length but balanced as for a rotation. You don't want it vibrating like a tire that lost it's wheel weights.
