I have a 2004 Rancher 400 AT that I purchase new. I took it to the shop for two recalls (transmission/tie rod) in 2005. I haven't ridden it very much since(it has 154 mile on it now.) I start it from every once in while to keep the battery charged. I took it out last weekend and it would not go over 20 mph while in ESP. When I put it in AUTO it will go about 30 mph. It will idle all day long and seems to have plenty of power. Last weekend I rode it 15 miles up and down old logging roads without any problems other than the speed issue.

Anyone have any ideas what the problem could be?

Check you engine case and make sure no one has swapped you out with a Yamaha engine...!!!!! LOL JK

When you had it up and shifted through the gears how did the engine sound? and what speeds did it reach then?
