Hey I'm about to get a 05 Honda foreman 500es with 28 laws on it and 2 inch lift and snorkel and that's itnive heard that with 28s you need a gear reductions which is 18% I think. Which is 650 which is a pretty hefty price. I've heard about putting honda 420at front and rear diffs in it for a 14% reduction will they bolt right in or do you have to do a lot of fab work? Any ideas? Thanks

What exactly is the double reduction? And how much is it and can you do just the secondary reduction if you would like? What would you do for 28 or 29laws?

And will the splines in the front and in the back match up so I can use the 500 ear axle and front axles?

More than likely the duffs are the same ratio and way too much cash. The primary and secondary reductions actually go inside the engine case. You will have to grind case for the secondary. Primary is a drop in.pm Gotmuddy or xtremerancher02 about gear reductions
