2006 Honda Rancher 400 4x4 atv

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, selling my can-am rally. Was looking around on craigslist and found this. 2006 Honda Rancher 400 4x4 atv. Usually something that is a 4x4 would not be priced this low especially since it is a 2006. BUT when i read the information on it, it did have 1005 miles on it. So I'm on the fence about giving this atv a look. It kind of seems like one of those "to good to be true" things. But i dont know.

SO anyway my point to this is do you guys have info on these ranchers? How are they? Any problems that I should be looking for with these atvs. I know the usual things to look for when buying a used atv but hondas are a little different style from what I have dealt with before. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

On the 400 Rancher, check the oil , like for dirty oil. Honda auto tranny's do not like old or dirty oil. See how it shifts in auto and ESP mode. My personal opinion is the 400 AT Rancher is over rated. compared to the 350 Rancher. If you are looking for an auto Honda ,go with the 420 Rancher , 500 Ruby, or the Rincon 650/680 (trail rig only for the Rinny).

A buddy of mine has an '04 Rancher 350, that thing is as slow as they come, but tough. He has had it since it was new and ridden the crap out it. It has taken an extreme amount of abuse and it has a loose rear end now, but it was never made to go through the hell it has been put through. I am suprised the thing even works at all.

first off, a thousand miles isn't many miles. Yes the oil needs to be changed on a regular basis as Billy stated. The 400 engine is weak which is why Honda made the changes with the 420 engine, higher compression, larger valves and EFI. If you just want a good quad to ride and it hasn't been beat to death, it should be a very dependable atv.

yeah, saw that ad was:

"This posting has been flagged for removal"

I believe the Rancher is full time 4WD.

Only the 350 Ranche is fulltime.

      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?
