Rancher 420 Rear end rebuild

Recommended Posts

My 07 Rancher rear end started roaring on me the other day. I took the inspection plug out this afternoon and to my dismay it was dry full of rusty nasty crap. The pinion was loose and the axle seal was pissing out oil when I tried to top it up. I bought it used and usually check stuff over better but I missed that.  Muuuhhh :( Now I gotta take it apart and fix it. Not gonna be expensive, just time consuming. Hopefully the gears aren't too torn up. I cleaned out the nasty crap with some brake-clean and put in some fresh gear oil. Much quieter now just leaks out all the gear oil cause the seals are shot. I'll fill it up with some lucas and limp it along till I feel like fixing it.

Its good you know how to tear it down. Hopefully no internal damage. Those quads are normally great quads. The rear end is often overlooked.

Yeah their not to terribly complicated. Nothin but some nuts bolts and a few cotter keys.  I'm pretty sure the gears are O.K. Just a little corroded. I'll post some pictures when I get it torn apart.

I have a Honda rancher and those atvs are built like a tank.  They're worth spending time to keep them running.

I've ridden Hondas for years. I won't own anything else as far as ATVs go. My brother has a 98 artic cat(Suzuki). Its got nice suspension but nowhere near the power.

      If you're getting that pesky leaky seal on the pinion of your front differential and the pinion has allot of play, polaris won't sell the bushing needed to repair it properly without having to shell out big bucks for the complete ring and pinion kit. 
      I have a kit with an upgraded bushing, Japanese made bearing and USmade seal
      50 shipped in the US and 55 to Canada

      Hi, I just bought a used 1990 warrior and the rear is sagging low like it has a lowering kit but I’m not sure, does anyone know what it could be?

      Hey all. I got a stripped hub on this 450r ,and I ordered some new oem spec hubs, but they don't fit on the splines. I can't find and I.D or a name at all on the axle. The splines measure right around 28 mm. They're a good bit bigger than the stock ones. I even tried the hub from a 700 Raptor, but no-go.

      I have a 2013 Honda Rancher ES that wont start. Last night after running the atv for 10 minutes I parked it for 2 minutes. When I came back to start it up the atv would not run. It was turning over. All electronics are working properly. The battery is strong. I sprayed a little bit of carb cleaner in the intake with filter off and the atv started for a second. I changed the spark plug and it still wouldn't run. Whats the next step to check before giving up and taking it to the dealership?
