2007 Honda Rancher 420 transmission problem

Recommended Posts

I have a 2007 honda rancher 420 with trans problems. When I am riding it with the motor at around half and throttle and up the gear light will start to flash and then go away for about 5 seconds and then a dash will come up where the gear is sapose to be. I have to cut the fourwheeler off and use the front brake to crank it in gear and than wait a few seconds before it will shift. It does it in all gears except reverse as far as I know. It started about 4 months ago and is getting worse everytime i ride it. Please help me figure out how to fix it or atleast what is going on so I can take it to have it fixed.

Welcome to QUADCRAZY! I would think that you have an issue with your shift sensor. Have you checked into that?

Moderator please move this thread into Honda Mechanical.

Unfortunately I do not have any parts diagrams for that, you should really invest in a good manual for that machine.

But try looking on the left side if the machine under the fender. Look for electrical wires to a sensor. Maybe wires are sheered or sensor cracked. Do you have a metal cover over by the starter area?

There is a sensor that is referred to as the angle sensor, which could be your issue. If you are not confident, you should have someone troubleshoot it for you at a shop/dealer.

Once you locate the sensor, look at the condition of the wires, connector, and sensor iteself. Make sure no trail debris hit it.

If it turns out bad, go to Bike Bandit where you can get it for @ $70 Part# 5904359-001

There is a series of long & short flashes you have to count ..

I didn't know that..how do you set it to flash/check? Are you putting it into some sort of flash/diagnostic mode?

      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 installed a LED bar, but have yet to wire it in. Would like to wire it into light switch circuit for low beams, assuming it will stay on for high beams also. I am an old fart so am looking for an easily accessible place if possible. 

      Other concern is current draw. It takes 2 amps. So wherever it goes, the circuit has got to handle an additional 2 amps.
      Any help will be appreciated.

      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?

      A week ago I could not even get close to starting it. But now I adjusted the valves (exhaust valve was not closed). i got it running but would not run without choke. i adjusted the float because it was to low tried starting it up again and it would not even start. So i went back and looked at the valves and the valve was now open again so i adjusted it and it started right up and ran perfect without choke. So i put it all back together thinking it was ready to go. Started it up and let it run for a little bit. i turned it off and tried starting it again there was NOTHING. took it apart and there was 0 compression and the exhaust valve was open again. I am completely lost need help PLEASE!!!:aargh:
