    Hey, Helmut I have a 2008 Honda rancher 420 that's overheating. After about 20 minutes of riding the temp light comes on and the fan runs. Im running straight water in the radiator. Do you think that I need to replace that with pro Honda coolant to solve the problem

    Helmet, I see you've helped quote a few people in the past about this ne, so I thought I'd ask you. I've got an 03 Foreman ES. It will not downshift. Shifts up fine, but not back down. I read number of posts about this and first thought I should replace the angle sensor. However, I then saw your reply about the clutch free play adjustment, so thought I'd try that first, after all that's free and easy. I've never done that adjustment before so it was in the same position as when it left the factory. When I followed the procedure I ended up to the looser side, approx 1/8 turn clockwise from where it was. I expected that due to wear I would end up on the tighter side?? Anyway, it seemed to work, when testing it in my shop. I started plowing with it and it seemed fine at first, but after a while it started happening again and got to the point where I couldn't keep plowing as I would get stuck unable to get it into reverse. Your thoughts?

    Hey, I've seen several of your posts, and I hope you can help guide me. I posted in the forums, TRX tech section about my TRX 300. The final drive casing broke from the inside. Something blew apart inside and now I'm looking at rebuilding or replacing. I figure it would be cheaper to rebuild, but I dont have a lot of the special tools I'm sure that will be required. Replacing would be easier, but I understand more expensive. Do you know where I could even get these pieces? My local Honda shop doesnt have much confidence in locating this because it's a 1995. Do you have an guidance or wisdom you would like to part with dear Oracle??

    Been a while since we handled my nuetral shift lite on my 01 rancher 350 can ya tell me where my temp sending unit is ? .The bike is 5 hours away and the fan is not coming on but the last guy at the hunting lease said he got the fan to spin good by completing the ground circut, so i am betting on a sending unit.

    Hello knowledgeable one. After failing to figure out how to make a new post, I thought You just might be able to help me. i have a green wire sticking out of my engine on my 1984 after re-wiring it. Where does it ground or plug up? I think it may be from the ac generator or stator? I spent several hours re-checking my work as to why I have the infamous no spark. replaced the coil. cdi, sparkplug. please direct me to proper posting methods if necessary. This is my second attempt as i have been working on it since winter 2012.
