2005 Honda TRX400FA Rancher Transmission Slipping

Recommended Posts

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...

      Hi, I’m new to the forum. I have a large trailer, about 7500 lbs loaded, that I need to move around in my driveway. I was planning to buy a motorized trailer dolly, but it occurred to me that perhaps and ATV could do it, and then I could not only move the trailer but also have the ATV for the fun of it!
      I’m wondering if anyone knows if an ATV can move a trailer this size? The tongue weight is about 750 lbs, and I’d only be moving it very slowly in a small space on almost level concrete and gravel.

      Was using the quad the other day to shuttle wood from my pickup to my wood pile.  When the job was done I turned off the Quad and heard a bit of a racket from the front end.  When I got down underneath the sound seemed to be coming from the fan housing.  fan was moving in spurts and not quickly... much like a computer case fan that's had it's day.  What I know.
      Temp sensor is ok, as the fan tries to activate fan is getting some voltage as it is attempting to spin.  When I first bought it used I tested the fan direct to battery and it was fine. The fan was working ok even not direct wired as I went on a couple of rides and when stopped and idling the fan did run Seems to be free spinning with my finger read up in the manual and they require me to drop the rad.  now I'm not opposed to that as the rad has some damaged areas I want to try and straighten out.  But if I can get the fan working without, I can leave the rad as it is until next year.
      Fan assembly is about 300 bills, any work arounds or alternatives?  I even thought large computer case brushless fan.  smaller ones are about $7 larger ones better quality probably far below the 300.  They run standard 12v DC.
      Anything I should be doing before dropping the rad... other than check for obstructions even though it seems to spin, and trying to hardwire it to the battery again for a test to see if it acts the same?
