2006 Yamaha Rhino 450 Digital Dash Question

I'm looking at a used 2006 Yamaha Rhino 450 that has the idiot lights rather than the digital dash. Can a digital dash be installed in it instead? If so what would the approximate cost be to swap it myself and how hard would it be?

Thanks,
Bill

I put one in by 06 - 450. It is easy to install. Rhino is pre-wired. Just plug and play.

Ok, thanks. How are they installed? Just screws or are there special tools needed?

How is the Rhino 450 as far as power? Talked to a lady today that says she has one and it has plenty of power for utility use but wouldn't win a race by any means. How are they for modifications such as aftermarket air intakes etc.

Thanks again,
Bill

If you wanna go fast - buy a big engine. I use my 450 for plowing snow and trail riding. I have plenty of power for my use. Just 4 nuts hold it in and plugs are there.

Ok, thanks. I don't need to go fast, I just want to mainly know if its going to have the power to climb some moderate hills, due to where I ride and where I go to cut firewood there are a few hills around that I have to go up. Since you said you use it for plowing that leads me to believe it has plenty of power even with the smaller engine.

450 has a lower gear ratio for pulling hills. I plow in high range 4 wheel drive.

Ahh, ok, I always thought the transmissions were all the same regardless of what engine was installed. I have a Grizzly 450 and it seems to have enough power for everything I do including plowing so I imagine then that the Rhino would be about the same just slower due to weight and governor.

Add a $150 Hunterworks CDI. No more governor or limiter in reverse.

Was planning on going with an aftermarket CDI. Thanks for the brand name.
