2000 Rancher 350 ES 4x4-Drive train Problem

2000 Rancher 350 ES 4x4

O.K. here's the story.I pulled the motor out so I could fix why the bike wouldn't shift gears.After pulling the motor I removed the clutch cover and looking over all of the parts that were used to make it shift.I found the culprit and replaced it with a spare that I had from a parts engine.In order to remove it I had to slide the clutch basket forward a little,removed and replaced the bad part then slid the clutch back and finished assembling the engine.Before I put it back on the frame I checked it to make sure it shifted and it did with no problems.I put the motor back on the frame and I hooked up the wiring and exhaust pretty much just the bare minimum of what it would take just to start it and test it.(None of the front wheel drive was hooked up if it matters or not and the front and rear of bike are completely off the ground).

And now finally here is my problem.When I start the bike the es shifts just fine,BUT the tires do not turn in forward or reverse.When I shift either direction I know it is going into gear cause as soon as I shift you can see the tires turn just a little,but when I give it gas they don't turn at all.I can spin the tires with my hand and they turn freely and I know when it is in gear cause I can watch the output shaft on the front wheel drive turn as I spin the back tires.Is there another internal problem with the engine or is it my clutch.The reason I believe it may be my clutch is because I messed with the adjustment on the clutch cover before removing it(thinking it was something that needed to be removed in order to remove the cover)and I'm not quite sure how to set it the way it should be set.Anybodies help would be greatly appreciated I'm just a poor white boy that can't afford a mechanic's rate so gotta do it myself.Sorry for writing a whole book here,but I just wanted to give the most info.as possible for an accurate diagnosis.Thank-You for your time.

what does your dash tell you when you shift it electrically? do you get the gear number or just " - -" if so, it is prob the shift angle sensor. it screws into the back of the case just above the swingarm. It is a common problem on Hondoos.... the computer doesnt know what gear it is in so it defaults to neutral.

Not saying this could be the only problem, but it is a common failure part on the ES quads.

good luck. prob should buy a book.:wink:

Yeah I've heard tons of problems that involved the angle sensor being the problem,but when I shift it the screen does display the gear number it is in rather than "--"plus when I try to manually shift it will shift gears ,but when I give it gas it just won't move.Keep in mind that it is on jack stands and when I do shift it in forward or reverse the tires do turn for just a second to let me know it is shifting but just not holding.As for getting the book for it.........Well I guess I'm a little hard headed when it comes to reason and a book would make it to easy.LOL Besides that is why they have forums.LOL I'll give it a little longer before I break down and listen to reason and get the book.Thanks for your input ,but I think the angle sensor is ruled out.I'm totally open for anymore suggestions.

      So I've got a Hisun 550 (clone of a Yamaha Rhino 660) that I was doing some work on that required removing the CVT and it's housing. Upon attempting to reinstall the clutch, sheaves, etc, I found that the belt no longer fits - it's far too wide. None of the parts have been replaced, they're all OEM. Exactly the same parts as what I took off a few weeks ago.
      To be more specific, my belt is 1.25in wide, but the gap between the clutch and the primary sheave is only 7/8in wide. I'll include a few photos to explain.
      Has anyone ever experienced such a bizarre problem? Any help at all would be appreciated, I've been stuck on this for a month. I'm open to just about any suggestion.

      Well yall, it's been a while. Work has absolutely annihilated me for the past 5-6 months, and ive had bare minimum time to work on this project. Thank you to those that helped previously during the engine rebuild, but now were on to the task of wiring, and let me tell you besides the plugs on the wiring, I am almost completely lost. Bought an ebay harness, and none of the colors line up to what i have seen on any manuals. Its all the 97-01 electronics i believe. Ill post some pictures below of the mess I'm working with. Emphasis on "mess." A lot of the wires had to be extended since the harness was made for an atv and not a buggy. The colors are a little wonky, but I was using what I had, and they were mostly for just extending the plugs, so the colors match on either end. A buddy of mine has been helping me, and we are just at a loss. Looking for general guidance or any wire specific help you could give us. Not even sure if some of the single wires are plugged in right, and we dont have a "lever switch" wondering if thats just for the brake, because the master cylinder has two screws. I suppose a + and -... We also have what I believe are the reverse and neutral sensors to plug in (the only two sensors on the engine)
      P.S. peep the custom airbox i 3d printed to utilize a lawn mower filter and 2x2 coupling from lowes 
      If you need better pictures of anything, let me know, It's kind of hard to get pictures of this rats nest.
      Wires that are not connected to anything
      4th picture black wire
      5th picture blue wire w white stripe left/solid blue on right
      6th picture what I believe to be the lever switch from pictures I saw on ebay
      7th picture is two black wires coming out of the harness. One we have running back to a black with white stripe that comes out of a different place in the harness. The other that had an end to match the single wire coming from the handle bar switch. Single handle bar wire has a white stripe, so I may try to switch those around if the ends permit it.
      I know it just looks god awful, but i really do think we are close, and the idea is to figure out whats going where, then figure out how to make it look better, so bear with me haha. Any help is appreciated. Just finished a little go kart for my wife with a predator 212, and gosh do I envy that wiring (there is none😂)

      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!

      Just wondering where you guy's an Gal's get your parts. I love buying OEM stuff but sometimes they just cost to darn much for what they are. I know, I know everybody needs to make a living but dang! $ 97.00 for brake pads on one side of the front of my KingQuad. There has got to be a better way.
