I recently bought my wife a used '08 rancher es. I have been checking the fluids and going over the bike and doing a little riding before taking it up to the UP MI. where we do most of our riding on those narrow logging trails. My question is when you get on the accelerator going thru the gears and you are nearing top rpm before shifting to the next gear it starts to sputter till you shift. Is there a rev limiter on these ranchers and how come I can't find a fuel filter, I only see a fuel screen listed on the schematics or have I missed something. plus anyone know where I can get an owners manual that might answer some of my questions. Thanks for any info, great forum. wheeler 52

So where do you ride at in the UP? I do most of mine on Drummond.
Im looking through my manual and the only filter is the strainer screen inside the fuel tank. Nothing on sputtering at high rev but I would guess thats your rev limiter. I got this manual used in th Soo but there might be one on here somewhere or you can down load them cheap through other sites

Your keeping up with your air filter & oil changes right? and all wire connections dielectric greased? Otherwise that Missing might be something else, LOL

Well then could have a dirty injector.My guess is it's a dirty filter or just plain worn out.

We bought a little place in Hiawatha Nat. Forest, all the forest logging roads are open to orv riding. We haven't seen any other riders except for a Delta County Sherriff on a 4- wheeler investigating a break in at a remote cabin. You ride with a chainsaw strapped on the rear carrier along with 5 gal. of gas lol. wheeler

Cool, Id like to ride out that way someday....maybe do a long atv ride and camp along the way. I never leave home without the chainsaw and a way to repair my tire. Most of the roads on drummond are open to orvs aswell. Much of the Island is Lake superior state forest so your allowed to camp pretty much anywhere as long as you display a permit. The DNR seem to love Drummond because they are here all the time But they're trying to crack down on the crazy stuff that happens here. Border patrol runs the trails too sometimes.
