420 Gear Reduction

After searching on here for about an hour I give up. Is there any type of write up on the process it takes to a gear reduction? I found quite a bit on the AT's but not much the SRA models like mine. I have 28" Mega Mayhems on mine and in first gear it doesn't do bad in normal mud but anything thick or deep it really just hates it. What % to do and WHERE to get it or WHO to buy it from?? Thanks.

Any gear reduction bigger than the SRA reduction for an AT should work in yours it just won't be as much of a reduction from stock. I think HL sells a reduction for it.

I would check with GotMuddy on the Highlifter Forum. He makes gear reductions for just about everything.

I was wanting to know what it all involved. Not super detailed but just a little deeper information.

You pull the rear case off, change the primary and secondary drive gears, replace the rear case, then shave the speed sensor down so it drops farther into the case so it will shift right. The most basic description I can give.

Hey what's up guys! I just joined this forum and also just purchased a 2013 rancher 420 4x4. I'm excited about both. I'm wanting to learn the most beneficial accessories to help open it up and gain a little power. Also I want to make it as bright as possible at night time. I've seen a few exhausts out there. Didn't know if I needed to tune or anytning else after installing one. Any helpful tips or suggestions would be much appreciated.

If ur just doining a pipe u shouldmt need a programmer but every bike is different if ur just wanting a little more power and don't want knock ur speed down I would go with the 14.5 % gr but if ur wanting all out mud then the 35% as far as lights the only aftermarket hids r made by eagel eye
