i have never heard the centrifugal cluch make a nosie..they just wear and cause the bike to not move..more than likely your got a problem with your clutch disk pack..check and replace if needed.I am new to the forum and new to the honda world. I recently purchased a 05 rancher at and the trans is slipping when warmed up. you can hear it slip also. can the centrifugal clutch make any noise when slipping? any help would be great.
I don't have any ideal. I wish I could help you, but I don't know anything at all about the Honda CVT trannys. I've never owned one or worked on one, so I can't help, but maybe someone else will know something about them and chime in.I read that and it is very informative. it sounds a little complicated but oh well. I think I noticed that when the trans is slipping I don't have any "engine braking" I wonder now if it is the angle sensor malfunctioning
They have a completely different tranny than the Rincon. The Rincon tranny is pretty much about like an automobile transmission. The Rancher 400 auto tranny is a CVT tranny that uses pistons and pumps.Change the Oil now, use Honda GN4, if that Trans is the same style as a Rincon they will slip if you use the wrong or have dirty Oil. The Engine Oil may also be the Trans Oil.
Remember, the nut that holds the centrifugal clutch on has left hand threads, so it will turn clockwise to remove.well I tore it down last night and it looks like the centrifugal clutch is fried. oh well, thats why I got it for so cheap. I will get my puller from work and hopefully pull it off tonight to see what exactly happened. thanks everybody for the help
