New Honda 2013 TRX420TM owner

Hello all. I'm a new owner of a like-new 2013 Rancher. I'm hoping to get enough information to keep/maintain my new atv. It's in great condition but I've noticed that it wants to die after running great for a while and I come to a stop. It's like it chokes itself out. Not sure why but it'll start up again but it's in such nice shape I want to make sure I keep it that way. Thanks for any advice and help in advance.

Welcome to Quadcrazy. My rancher acts up from time to time.  I put a fresh plug in and its good to go.  Make sure your fuel delivery is ok and that your gas cap vent is working properly.  If it acts up open the gas cap and see if the problem goes away. If so its vapor lock and order a new cap. Other then that to me it sounds like a fuel starved issue that happens after some riding?   Maybe a filter or your injector may be acting up after it gets hot etc. Start with the simple stuff first. 
 

As far as keeping up with the machine i would say  the standard oil, lube and filter and your air filter changes.  One often over looked item is the differential fluids.  Make sure that once a year you check the fluids and change if your logging big time riding hours.  

Side note: 

Write it down!!! Go buy a small book and keep a log! If you ever want to upgrade to a new atv  its a lot easier to sell a machine with documentation!  And if you keep your machine its great to remember what and when you did a repair or maintenance!

      Hi everyone. 
      Let me explain the thread title. 
      My husband and I are very active in the nudist community, and we have stayed at many and most of the mainstream nudist and clothing optional campgrounds in the USA. We are now approaching our retirement and would like to start a podcast to share those off the road / backwoods / little known camping areas where nudity is allowed. We have purchased a 5th wheel camping trailer with a rear garage for the ATV and now need some good reports on the one to buy. 
      We are most interested in a side by side unit but would love to get your thoughts. 
      Feel free to stop by and say Hi and ask anything you would like to better understand what we are looking for in an offroad unit. 
      Thanks for reading and hope to hear from you.

      My friends KQ 300 starts fine and runs, as soon as you put it in gear and try to accelerate its bucks and farts like crazy, not moving... I cleaned carb and it worked good for 1 day... now back to same problem.... could it be such as a bent valve????

      I have been exploring all the options available, so many, its hard to choose. I have kind of narrowed it down to the Honda Pilot, Subaru Outback, and Kind of looking at the Outlander, although its a little small,  the new one is nice looking. Just wondering if anyone has any recommendations or gripes with any of these rides. I have driven Jeeps for the past 25  years and they have been great, but their price point has gotten to high. Expieriences good or bad would be helpful. Thanks!

      Hi, I have been around everything with a motor since I was little, and finally purchased more to get my husband, and kids involved. I have 4 quads I will be searching around for information on. I have two 2002 Suzuki LT80K quads, a 1997 Yamaha Timberwolf 250, and a 1996 Kawasaki Bayou 220. I have had different ones throughout the years, and plan on buying another Yamaha Banshee. I plan on trying to learn more about all of them, so I can customize some of them. I know nothing about them besides how to race them, my dad always took care of the rest, but figured it was time for me to learn.
