I bought a Honda ATV a couple of years ago from an estate. It has Rancher decals on it and was titled as a 1997 Honda Rancher. While shopping for new tires for it, I have found that apparently Honda did not make the Rancher until later. On the color decal under the seat, it says that it is a TRX350 FM. Which is correct--the year model or the Rancher designation? I need some help.

Rancher started in 2001. You have a honda 350 4x4 foot shift Rancher. Post a pic and we can tell you close what year it is.

^^^If this was the case it wouldn't have said TRX350FM anywhere. It's a 350 Rancher footshift 4x4 made between 2000-2006.

2000-2003 Rancher




2004-2006 Rancher

There was no 350 in 97 they stopped making those old style 350's in 1989 in the US, and somewhere around 1993-1994 in Canada. Now, there was a 300 Fourtrax and a 400 Foreman in 1997, and I suppose it could be either one with "Rancher" stickers on it. But they would have to go pretty far out of their way to put a little white sticker under the seat on the frame that says "TRX350FM". That sticker tells me it has to be a 2000-2006 Rancher 350 4x4 Footshift.

lets repeat this...... the op stated its titled as a 1997.... I am well aware that the rancher wasnt around then... As I stated he needs to check the vin for the correct year under the seat was a sticker he also stated..... it is quite possible some one changed the style of plastics? He needs to check the vin and if he were to get back on here he would of seen all of these post.

Not to bring up a subject from 6 years ago, I recently bought a "rancher" also front tag for year and vin is severely worn only date I can find on it is that it meets california emissions for 1997 but tag under seat says same as op trx350, it's full time 4x4 with foot shift, trying to find a rebuild kit for engine and noticed I couldn't find one for a 97

First year rancher was 00 I believe
What is engine serial?
Go to Rocky Mountain atv website and search OEM parts there will be a rollup by years and VIN
I recommend new thread with pic of your quad. My guess is 00-07
