Do you have the push-button-Honda-like-shifter mechanism?

I know there has been some electrical issues with some of these machines. Mostly related to the semi-automatic shifter-system, and to the little electrical motor that engages and disengages the 4x4.

This little motor often burns up internally, and therefor need replacement.

You can loosen the engage/disengage-motor by loosening the 4 screws in the pic below, and open it up, having a look-see.

There will come some diff-fluid when you take the motor out, so be sure to add some when putting it all together again.

If you have a test light there are a few simple tests to determine if it's your actuator or your switch that is giving you the shift problem, first make sure you have a your test light connected to a good ground, turn your ignition to the on position,(do not start it) now turn your 4x4 switch to the on position or the engage position. Now with the test light touch the connectors at the actuator to see if there is any power at the actuator.

Hi I know this isn't about the four wheel drive, but I would like to put the foot shifter on my 08 odes 400 ATV. And I went to put it on last night and the rod that is coming out of the engine just sits there and spins to one side then stops and can go all the way back to the other. How do I hook this up? Please help.

      Hey everyone! new quad guy here so I purchased a Chinese quad yes I know rookie mistake but all I wanted was just something to bomb around in.
      So I serviced it, changed the oil and filter new spark plug and cleaned the carb and topped up on gear oil and new battery but the issue is I can get it started and go but if I let off the throttle it stalls out, I have 1 or 2 vacuum hoses I can't quite figure out 
      And my 4x4 actuator doesn't engage but I haven't played around with that much yet

      Hello...first post.
      Have a problem I have not been able to figure out.  
      While back the fuel pump went out...replaced it.  I got maybe 30 minutes..maybe less before the new one went out.
      Replaced it again...same thing. Now I am sitting with two more new fuel pumps in reserve but do not want to experiment and blow out another until I have a clue of what could be wrong.
      Have checked electrical...seems to be fine but I am no expert. Also the fuse is just fine.
