2005 Honda TRX400FA Rancher Transmission Slipping

7 posts in this topic

Hello,

I am new and not sure if I am posting in the correct area.

It seems like my ATV's trans is slipping. I only use it to mow with a tow behind.

When I turn sometimes there is a high pitched noise and ATV doesn't move.

Does the clutch need to be replaced or are there any adjustments I can do?

This does not happen when cruising.

Thanks in advace.

I'm assuming its the automatic tranny Rancher. If it is , try it in manual shift mode. Not in auto mode. Those models have been known to have problem when worked in auto mode. How often do you change the oil?

It is a little better in manual mode than auto. I am overdue for an oil change. Could that be the problem?

Yes it could be a reason if your oil has broken down.

Clutch operation could fail if your engine oil is deteriorated, viscosity too high, or your oil level too high. Not sure on that atv, but make sure you use the recommended oil with additives and the correct weight.

It is a possibility. Welcome to QUADCRAZY!

I'd say DEFINITELY change the oil...that's a MAJOR part in how the quad functions...if it still acts funky and you've got the skills, pull the clutch apart to see if there's notching or anything like that. My quad was acting funny a while ago and when we pulled it apart I had a clutch plate blow up in there. Also found some notching in my basket....

just a thought...

      I bought a Honda 250sx 1986 but the exhaust is broken. Apparently it's not possible to order a new one. I checked to order one on others compagny but there's noting.
      Do you know which exhaust it's possible to install. Is there a company who sold an exaust to fit on my 250sx.
      Sorry for my english
      Thank you

      Im working on a old 1987 honda 125 4 wheeler in the school shop. It will start by getting pulled by another 4 wheeler but wont start with the pull start or Electric Start. When you pull start it it tries to start but when you try the electric start it just turns over but doesnt even act like it wants to start. The spark plug is dry and it shoots fuel out of the back(air filter side) of the carb. Weve had the carb off twice and it is complety clean. What are some things we can try?

      Any ideas on what would make a coil not fire? She was running fine, then began slow start. Now wont start at all.
