I am new to the forum and is my first post I Bought a used '08 rancher 420 es for my wife 2 wks ago. I was not very familiar with the es and after riding more after getting it home I became a little leary of the tranny, it seems to shift hard ( jerk) going into next gear but shifts easier if you really get on it. Also twice it would not shift into neutral when I went to start it but finally did after about ten pushes of the downshift button, could this be a low battery condition

i don't know much about the newer models..but..from what i have read around here..it has alot to do with the sensors in your bike..if it is under warranty..contact your local honda dealer..everyone i seen post about this says honda recalled these models because it's a defect..soo..you can try contacting your honda dealer first .

if it shifts every time u tell it too but it jerks, its more than likley a stuck shift clutch. easy fix, but carry it back and let the guys at the honda shop take care of you, thats what we're here for lol.

Thanks for the reply, Like I said I bought this bike used, no warranty and the dealers by me charge $90+ an hour. I was hoping that I could get some info as how to troubleshoot myself. thanks again
