This is my Rancher 420. Please let me know what yall honda people think. haha.
First 3 pics is when i first got it, looks really good but needed alot of work. That i didnt know at the time.
The people who i bought it from didnt do no kinda maintenance on it at all had to changed the oil and air breather ect.

Welcome to the Forums!! I would first start off by doing a carb clean. If it runs good then don't worry about it.
I would definitely change the oil. I like to use the factory Honda oil but you use what you want to use.
Next I would see how black your spark plug is, consider getting a new one.
I would replace the air Filter or see if you can just clean it (That's why I like the K&N Filters you can wash them and the put the spray on them and they are good to go!!)
Next I would make sure that you brake reservoirs are full. Kinda stupid but you don't want them to get air in the lines. Bleeding brake is not very fun LOL.
Also I would see if there are any Grease Zerks (Front end, control arms, rear swing arm etc.) Grease what you can, it will last longer.
Finally I'm not sure if this is chain driven or not, but if it is see how worn BOTH sprockets are. Also see if your chain is loose. If so it may be stretched, you may need a new one. Or try your luck and tighten it a lot.
Idk how much you know about these bikes but I'd figured I share my knowledge!!!
Quad looks great! Have fun riding!!


I went through and saw what you said and realized I read it wrong LOL its to late at night!! Sorry!!

It doesnt have a carb haha, and it has a drive shaft, one in the front and back haha.

I did all the maintenance when i first got it, I spend about 1,000 more into getting it done right.

Thanks.
