Hello again...

Thanks in part to you guys, I was able to get the 2000 Rancher ES for $1500. (I posted a comment about 5 days ago asking about this deal)

Now I must ask... What do I need to know about this machine? Recommended maintenance? Things to look out for? Quirks?

The machine has about 3,000 miles and 600 hours on it.

The handlebars are bent down from a rollover...any way to bend them back up to normal position without breaking or weakening the bars themselves? Is there an adjustment that will allow me to roll the bars up to get them back to normal?

Yeah, you can loosen the clamps and roll the handlebars back into position. If they're bent, it's hard to straighten them without kinking them. Here is a link to a free downloadable repair manual for the Rancher. It's for the ES model, but everything but the electric shift should be the same as yours.

Helmut,

This manual is great, thanks for the help. Can you tell me if this manual is the equivalent of an "04" also? I see the body is different, do you know if that is about all?

There shouldn't be much difference at all between them.
