2004 Honda Rancher TRX400 Battery

Recommended Posts

I bought a new after market battery for my 2004 Honda Rancher TRX400 a few months ago. it started and ran fine. I tried to crank it today and the power would not even come on. I took the battery out and took it to the parts store and they tested it and said it was good and just needed to be charged. They charged it, and I put it back in and hooked it up. It still does not get any power and lights dont even come on. Does anyone known what the problem may be??? Stumped in Mississippi

Welcome to QUADCRAZY. Check all of your connections. Take a tester out and start testing for power outside the battery.

Start at the battery checking both pos (+) and ground (-) making sure all connections are tight and clean. The gounnd should go to the frame close by, then follow the pos(+) cable checking for tightness and cleaning all connnections if it goes into a solenoid figure how to energize it to keep following the path every direction it goes. This sounds like a of checking but is the only way to find where the power isn't going.

      Anyone know a good place for parts/plastics? I've seen junk for sale on eBay and overpriced. 
      I need the left side cover (triangle plastic) for my 1985 250es

      Quad starts fine and revs fine in my back yard. On a test ride it falters badly. No power. I have cleaned and rebuilt the carb, cleaned the fuel tank, installed new fuel filter, changed fuel line and cleaned the air filter. Any help would be appreciated.

      Hi all,
      Picked up my first Brute Force yesterday. What should have been an awesome afternoon of riding turn a bit into a deception. As I was unable to really take it out for a test drive at the shop, I decided to buy it and agreed that I would take the test drive at home. 
      When giving full throttle I noticed that the Brute was choking and lost all of its powers. Faulty fuel pump most likely. 
      Called the shop and the are coming to pick it up and repair it and bring it back. Good service. Nevertheless feels a bit sour in the mouth as I was told it was a 100% good. 
      Need to have some patience I now before I can really start riding.

      Got my Yamaha Grizzly buttoned up finally and went for a quick 2 hour ride in the power lines with my neighbor, who has a Yamaha Kodiak. We have access from his yard, which is nice. Was a beautiful day today to get out and will try to go more often. Ran into two other quad riders with a sportsman and I think grizzly. Also ran into a dirt bike rider. 😎
