Help honda Rincon 650 issues

2003 650 rincon with 2962 miles and 582 hrs. The issue was the cam chain. I put new guides, chain and tensioner. I did not do the oil pump & chain like I should have while I was in there. Got it back together she started right up. Did a test ride down the road it shifts fine and speedometer works. Got back in and finished putting my plastic covers on. The next weekend I go out on a trail ride and I have no speedometer and it’s not shifting in either auto or esp. 4wd works and I’m not getting any codes. I did find my front axle shaft popped out of the diff. I’m pretty sure my front diff has mud and water in it by now but I doubt that’s my issue. I’ve taken the transmission valve body off, took it apart cleaned it good, cleaned the connectors for the solenoids didn’t find any junk in there. bought a new AGM battery. My rincon runs good but dies after a 10-15 minutes of riding. It is burning oil under a load and on a cold start. Only mods I have is a home made snorkel and 26’s

Any help is greatly appreciated.

You can get a copy of the service manual in the manuals forum if you don't have one yet and rebuild it.

My guess is one of your speed sensors is shot, and that's keeping it from shifting. The Rincon has to know how fast it's going to shift.

Dying after a few minutes of riding....check the vent on your gas tank. Take the cap off your tank next time it does it and see if it starts. You also need to make sure your petcock isn't partially clogged.

The oil burning sounds like it's just worn out. It will likely get worse with use. Cold starts only is usually valve stem seals. Under a load means worn rings/cylinder.

Quick update! Here’s what my front diff looked like when I drained it... this was about 5 mins after pulling the plug. No metal in the oil just thick muck. Is it possible that the speed sensors are just filthy? Maybe a good cleaning would do the trick?

if you keep treating it like a boat ?, no matter how many times you drain the diff's ?, it won't last long. I see a motor tear down coming, and it will not be as cheap as that speed sensor :-).

If its got a lift kit on it you might have to lower the lift an inch or so to keep that axle from popping out of the front diff.
