  3. I have a squeel on the front end of my Rancher. Sounds like it may be coming from where the input shaft goes into the back of the front differantial but I cant be too sure. Any suggestions guys?
  4. Yea luckily I have theft insurance on all of my quads. Its called shotgun.
  5. Has anyone here tackled The Amazon Trail at Burning Rock yet? [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5OU_SK2QnOI]The Amazon at Burning Rock - Muddiest Off-Road Trail - YouTube[/ame]
  6. They dont die. We put that bike through hell and back and it ran like a dream all the way up until it was stolen in 2003.
  7. In 1985 my dad bought our first 4-wheeler off the showroom floor in West Virginia. It was an '85 Honda Fourtrax 250. My Uncle drove Suzuki Quadrunners which were (to be honest) great bikes as well! So we were all constantly testing each other to see whos was better. Lemmie tell you something...that Honda was in no other ways to describe it....BULLETPROOF! It never needed any major repairs, it survived mudholes that todays 4-wheel drives have trouble with and it had a front end that weighed as much as a tank. The only repair we ever made to it was that the muffler had fallen off due to rust. It was kept at my grandfathers place in WV and at one point it went completely untouched for years. Going back up there we expected at the very least...a dead battery. It fired up without breaking a sweat. No ATV on earth comes close to Honda quality. They truely are built to last and even though I enjoy riding Suzuki's and others as well...there will always be a Honda in my garage. Because when I take it out on the trail, I am guarenteed its gonna get me back home.

  9. I think you would be alright with that size. Its got a bit more size on the chassis than most midship ATV's out there. My advice to you is if you have a dealer around you (Petes Cycle), try sitting on a few differant models and determine which size comforts you.
  10. Cool Thanks. I have so many toys not being used around the house I was able to snatch this in a trade. Brakes are shot and the elecrical seems haywire. But it runs and it shits and gets.
  11. Hey guys, I just got a '97 Scrambler 400 4x4 as a side project to work on through winter. I was wondering if anyone here could give me any great advice as to where I can get parts or even a service manual for this bike. Ive been told these are not too easy to come by. Also Im very much used to working on Honda's so if there is anything crucial I should know about these before tackling it I would greatly appreciate the advice.
  12. I just got a new 2012 Honda Rancher not too long ago and Im wanting to switch out the exhaust. Any suggestions?
  13. Yup, and its raining here in Maryland.....fillin out those mudholes! Its gonna be a fun weekend!
