  1. 2006 Honda rancher 350 loud chatter

    Honda Rancher
    Did you set the TDC on the compression stroke before adjusting the valves? Once I set the TDC on the exhaust stroke and got a loud noise when I started the Rancher. It ran well just loud and I knew right away something was wrong. Learned from my mistake.

    I would like to see how that mod is done, I could use a light up there for snowplowing.

    LOL. Jeep, I wouldn’t mind having five. I have two, recently had 3, but donated a 2005 ReconES to my buddy’s camp. I paid $500 for it, fixed it and donated it the next year. It was up there all year and I was worried about everybody using it, especially first time riders getting hurt on it and...

    I happen to just clean the carburetor on my 2001 Rancher a couple of weeks ago and took some pictures. Hope this helps.

    Glad to share. I thought you guys would find it interesting like I did that someone just parked it indoors and let it sit there and looked at it for 14 years. I would like to hear that story from the owner. I did just noticed that the same person has another one but green with 500 miles for a...

    Shade, your project came out looking like this almost new 2004 450 with 4 miles. I can’t believe someone bought this machine back in 2004 and never rode it, unless they restored it like you did that one. It looks like it’s new and not restored. They are asking too much for it unless a museum...

    Retro, you know when you asked me what is my next project? I didn’t mentioned it, but if there is one project I would like to do and that I’ve been thinking about for a while now, would be a 450ES project like the one you got there. I think they area great machines, they are not too big, they...

    Jeep, it’s good to know that you haven’t seen one fail. Have you installed one on a Rancher without Retro’s gizmo? If you did, how were you able to hook it up, handlebar switch to electrical differential with some kind of power? Just curious.
  10. 2000 450 es blows fuse

    Honda TRX
    My friend’s 2002 450ES was blowing the main fuse when key turned on. We looked to make sure it wasn’t the recent electrical connections that were done and it wasn’t. After I did some research, the rectifier seemed like it was the culprit. He ordered one from Amazon, I told him to get a Honda one...

    Hi Jeep, yes, it’s working out to be a great spot to mount the gizmo. Yesterday, I moved it forward about 3/8” because the gas tank was touching it a little and it’s no longer doing that. I’m just about done and everything is working, just need to put everything back. Great to have the...

    Today I installed the light brackets that secure the gizmo to the frame. I used easy to bend galvanized metal straps, bolts and nuts to make the connection between the gizmo and the brackets. It seems like this location is working out well. If I need to adjust the voltage I’ll just undo the...

    While I’m waiting for my light brackets I cleaned my carburetor tonight. It was 20 degrees in my shed and got it up to 34 with my little electric heater, by the time I left. It’s been two years since I’ve last cleaned my carburetor and look at what I found inside, plenty of gas gel. I always...

    Retro, I’m still trying to figure this out, but the idea is to support the gizmo with metal straps on the front, that would be attached to the light brackets that will go around the ¾” dia. frame tubes on either side of the handlebar turning shaft (see the photos below). The light brackets that...

    2001 Honda Rancher ES 4x4 to 4x4 and 4x2 Selectable Front Differential Swap Project. I’m swapping a differential from a 2004, 400AT Rancher into my 2001 Rancher 350 ES, plus a few more parts that are part of the swap for a complete installation. This project is a spinoff from Retro’s...

    I got my gizmo! This thing looks professionally done! Wow! impressive that’s all I can say. My wife was like, what do you have there, a bomb triggering device? LOL After I explained to her what I’m planning to do to my Rancher and that Retro on the forum built it and gifted it to me, she was...

    Retro, it’s been a while, been working a lot but have managed to picked up most of what I need to do the 400AT front differential assembly swap on my 350 Rancher. I don’t plan on starting this project until later in the Fall after the riding season is over. I also first need to build a lean to...
