What is oozing from front axle? Should I worry?<br />

<br />

That's from rear axle, worried about that oozing black stuff. It was all by my finger. What is it?! <br />

<br />

Also brakes have nothing. Where do I start with them?! And where can I get a cheap solenoid and tires?! Thanks!<br />

tires are probably wearing like that because of camber and toe in/toe out ...

the boot may have lost the seal from the clamp or dirt worked its way in and you are losing cv grease ...

the last pic looks like a worn seal, and you are losing gear oil ...

you probably arent losing much gear oil, there should be a nut/bolt near the top for filling and checking level. just keep it topped up. looking at the 2nd pic again, it is the same as the rear axle, a seal. just keep an eye on the level there too.

here is a good read for front end alignment ... ATV Alignment Tips | GIO

if it isnt a big deal for you and like its not something you want to do right away, yah, just top it up as you go. it might look like alot is leaking, but is probably very little ...

and tires, if you get new fronts, keep the air even in both, like 4-5 pounds each. that could have been something that contributed to the wear too ...

fill the gear oil from the top bolt, look for a fill level mark inside. pack as much as you can for the cv joints, motor oil or atv oil? you need atv oil for the hondas transmission (hp4 i think). i always used honda oil when i had my hondas, tried tested and true ... only need a couple quarts for a change i think ...

2.3 quarts lol. I let a friend change it and he put in castrol motor oil 10w-30 synthetic. Is that ok? How exactly do I pack the CVs? Alright and that bolt is beyond stuck?!

As long as the oil says wet clutch safe then the oil is ok. I would pack the cvs by hand as much as possible then dump some grease inside the boot. Was told if dirt does get in there it would stick to the boot instead of going to the cv due to centrifical force....wishful thinking maybe lol

If your in the U.S. then your oil is in quarts, but that bike is foreign so its a metric version. It should tell you right near the dip stick tube if its a 1000ml or 2000ml. one litre is 1000ml. Just get a conversion chart from the net and itll tell you the difference between a litre and a quart.

Also, if oil is getting out of the rear end then if you ride it in water, water is getting in, so keep it full until you can arrange or afford to have the seals replaced otherwise youll have a rear end gear problem.

Good luck

      Hi Everyone
      This is my first post and I was wondering if there is anyone who can help me solve a problem I have with my Yamaha Kodiak 400 4x4 Fitted with a Mikuni Carburetor . The year of the quad is around 1998, the reason I am not sure of the date is, there wasn't any paperwork and no details on the frame either.
      The quad had a bad leak from the carb overflow which indicated that the float needle valve was blocked or passing so I replaced this and put everything back together. The quad ran really well until I took it onto some rough ground to have a ride around, a few hours later the engine started to run really rough as if the engine was flooding. I have removed the carb again and cleaned the needle valve out and the whole of the carb just in case there where any dirt behind it. Engine now runs fine again but fuel has started to run out the carb overflow again.
      I have tried everything to try and stop the fuel leaking out the overflow but its still happening. My last thoughts where to adjust the float level and its still happening.
      Has anyone got any thoughts on the problem or could suggest whats causing the fuel leaking out the overflow.
      Thanks for reading
      Kevin

      hey guys , I have a question , me and a buddy acquired a cottage and was given a Honda Rancher with it . I can seem to find solid info on the year or model , that being said I am not a expert and dont have acces to the ATV but I do have a picture if it can help you guys. It seems like a 2001 but I'm not sure 
      thanks

      Bet you've never seen a Tonneau cover that can hold 2 - 4-wheelers on top of it. This is a home-made heavy duty fiberglass truck bed cover that was used on an 2000 F-350 with an 8' bed. We have used it hundreds of times but are getting out of the 4-wheeling fun. You can waterproof with a rubber seal, not included. This leaves the area under the cover open for all your gear and firewood. It is white and in great shape. 4-wheelers NOT included.

      It's been a while since I looked around at buying ATV tires, so just wondering where everyone is buying their ATV tires from these days? Do you just go to the dealer or do you order them online somewhere? If you get them online, who do you buy from and did you mount them yourself? Also please list your ATV tire brand. 👍

      For those that have been pulling hair out-
      It took me a month to figure this out, but I am glad to report that I have figured out how to repair my 2004 450ES Speedometer

      If you have a Honda Foreman 02-04 450 ES model ( 4 indicator lights on top of meter)
      or a Honda Foreman 99-00 450 ES model ( 3 indicator lights on top of meter)
      or aOnda Rancher 00-03 TRX350ES

      and your display:

      - Is Blank

      - does not show the gear indicator spot at all (not the gear or --) but the
      backwards "L" that goes around the gear position - its just blank

      -your miles and hours have reverted to zeros or all 9"s and possibly now shows KM now instead of Miles

      -your speed shown seems to have almost doubled (possibly KMs per hour even thought it shows Miles)

      What has happened is your EEPROM chip on motherboard has lost the programming due to dead battery for
      a LONG time or an electrical malfunction etc...

      I have borrowed a friends speedometer (a trusting friend) removed the chip from his, copied the data and put it on mine and it reads perfect now.

      I can repair your speedometer it will have 1851 miles and 317.2 hours on it as that is the only copy I have for the 02-04 Foreman 450ES
      I can also do 99-2000 450ES speedometers (3 indicator lights on top of meter) but will have to double-check check on the mileage/hours copy I have and let you know to see if you want that

      I can also do TRX500FM and FE meters and the older Rancher 350ES meters as well but it has to have the above symptoms and not water damaged-caught on fire, cracked lcd, etc....

      If you have one you want repaired just send to me (just the board with LCD) I can repair it for you for $45.00 or barter if you have a second bad meter for parts
      Shipping would be 4 - $5.00 for First Class with tracking and I will pay return shipping
      I will confirm and send pictures to you as well to show a working completed repair on your display
      If there is heavy water corrosion, rust and rot damage etc.. its probably not repairable but I can try if you want -no fix-no pay
      If you PM me or whatever we can work it out I am easy and like you all I am always fiddling/learning with wheelers
      I think you will be happy and you will have more hair -mine is filling back in...................
      Message me if interested
       
      I am now also doing burned out screen repair if your screen has become unreadable due to UV sunburn damage from the sun
      It will appear burned or melted.
      The cost is 45.00 with same or next day turnaround
      Will do partial barter if you have a second speedometer for parts
      PM me if interested
      Before and after pictures below
