2013 Honda Rancher 420 loose hub

Recommended Posts

Any idea what would cause the cotter pin to break and the nut to back off?  The loose hub is wollored out so its trash and the axle splines show a little wear.   I'm going to replace the hub and I'm curious how much play is acceptable before I need to replace the axle?

Was that hub or axle ever replaced before? Sounds like it wasn't tight enough. That's the only thing I can think of that would cause this.

It's the original.  The rear tire where just changed and I'm surprised the dealership didn't notice it when they were changed

Changed the hub and it's a little looser than it should be but I'll torque it down and run it.  We'll see how it holds up.

That sounds a bit strange. Did you happen to buy the bike new? No way it should have been that way from the factory, but even they have an off day.

It is a hand-me-down from my father in law.  He bought it new and uses it on his farm.  I thought it was strange too since both back tires are new and it should have been noticed when they were changed.  When I took the wheel off the hub nut was loose and the cotter pin was in three pieces laying in the wheel dust cap.  There was some rust on the axle splines so it was loose for a while.  To be safe I replaced the hub and it was still a bit looser than it should be so I have an axle on order.

Sounds like we're alike. I can't stand things not being right on any of my stuff either. Hope it works out for you. Unfortunately many dealerships have a shortage of qualified people. Changing tires is considered simple so it probably got done by the least skilled guy there.

Yea they should have noticed that But the hubs are made softer from the factory so it's easier & cheaper than a axle.

      Hey guys, Thanks for looking at my post. I haven't had a lot of experience with problems like this before, so I'm a little bit at a loss. The Quad was really hard to shift, (the dirty carb leaking gas making it idle high didn't help either). The only Idea I have would be is that the torsion spring is worn out, and that there is a normal parameter for how much it should move when those two arms of the shift shaft assembly spread apart.  That's my thought. Maybe someone who has more knowledge then me can let me know if i'm on the right track 😀

      To start it off, I'd like to share the bakery display cases I made for my wife. I'm sure ya'll have some impressive stories behind those HF tools, let's see 'em!
       
      I built these bakery display cases for wife on almost 100% HF tools a couple years ago. Only thing I bought from Home Depot was the wood/plywood/stains and 3 sawhorses for my workbench. Router, circsaw, blades for both, sander, sandpaper, gloves, the nails for the nailgun (gun borrowed from dad, have a 5# pancake for air) I had almost zero tools to start.
      Some of their cheap "speed" clamps failed, but first time for me using those types of clamps, was expecting them to hold better:

      heh my youngest helping my dad glue:

      and for fun, here was the finished project (1 of 2, built 2 cases, this is the smaller .. the plastic was from Tap Plastics for the "sneeze guards" and the top case):

      back side showing both cases:

      Just a curious thought-what percentage of your quad use is work (yard, field, hauling, etc) vs playing (exploration, recreation, enjoyment) 
      personally mine is about 60/40 work to play.  Most of the work is winter plowing!

      Hi Folks,
      Just bought this 1991 King Quad and it is missing the right front axle.  It runs and drives in 2 wd, would be nice to find parts or whole axle to make the 4 wd drive work again.  A rebuildable  axle would be fine.  Any help would be great.  
      Thanks Hilltopmike

      Hi Ladies,
      I am new to the forum and to riding. I just bought a 2002 Honda 400ex and I love it. I went out riding for the first time last Sunday and I can't wait to get back out there on Saturday. My question is do you wear your wedding/engagement rings while riding? I just recently got engaged and I never take my ring off. It fits fine under my glove and I am wondering if anyone else has lost theirs or had a bad experience wearing it while riding.

      I bought a roughish Honda rancher TRX350TM3 and I am having trouble locating the vin number - I would like know year and specs as is it rough , it runs but has multiple little issues ( choke cable seems frozen , carb has sticky or ill adjusted float and leaks gas from bottom of carb , shut off valve needs new o-ring to stop leaking , ect)  just age and lack of maintenance issues , but I need to know what it is to get correct specs … I was told there would be a tag on front end of frame but I don't see one . Any help would be greatly appreciated .

      I have a 2005 Honda Rancher 2-stroke. It's been sitting for a while. Yesterday I started it up and it idles well.
      When I tried to drive it, it bogs down and misses when I accelerate. Drained fuel, added new fuel and carb
      cleaner, and let it idle for a few minutes. It still bogged down, and I noticed a fuel leak under the carb. There's
      a tube from the bottom of the carb with something that looks like a filter. The gas was leaking from the end
      of the tube. Anyone have any ideas as to what the tube is, and what it actually does?
