Transmission rebuild????

Well I posted on here a while back about my clutches slipping in my 2000 rancher 350. Well the problem seems to be getting much worse. Im fairly mechanicaly inclined and im planning on replacing the clutches. My questions are is this hard to do and what is required. I looked on cheapcycleparts.com under transmission and it didnt list them as clutches so what else could these be called. Also how many clutches are there? Thanks for the help

On cheapcycleparts.com, look under "engine and exhaust" and then it's listed under "clutch" and they're called friction discs and clutch plates.

Most 4-wheeler problems are caused by a loose nut connecting the handlebars and the seat!!

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

They're not actually on the inside where the gears are, but they're under the front crankcase cover.

You can do it with the engine in the frame, but it's a lot easier to just remove the engine, or I think it is.

Yea I probably will just remove it bacause I need to fix an oil leak and I'd say it would be easiest to remove it because it looks easy to remove. Is there any good repair manuals for hondas?

You can download a factory service manual for the 350 Rancher for free at the link below.

If the oil you're using is safe for wet clutches, then I would say the clutches are worn out.
