Hi!

I need a technical data of my Honda trx 420 fa.

I banged into a tree by right wheel. No damage there. Only the position of handlebar steering it is wrong. It seems to me that the wheels look in different directions too much.
I do not have a service station near me.

Please help.

Welcome to the forums. Sounds like you knocked the alignment out. You should be able to adjust the tie rods, but I don't know what the toe is supposed to be set at on those, because I don't have a manual for a 420.

I'm not sure about machine specific but I have always used 1/4". That is 1/8" in on each tire.

I have new problem. But it is the continuation of the first. More precisely the reason for it.

My ball joint ends is....... they are aluminium! Each of them has a backlash already!

I rode only 60 miles!

Handlebar is shifted right, steering Handlebar are't directly, not forward, not straight ahead /Toe wheels may be wrong,

I rode only 60 miles and have a backlash yet!

Is it wrong?

May be I incorrect typed "backlash"? It means Luft steering. Only 60 miles!

ATV still smells of paint

With only 60 miles, the tie rod ends shouldn't be worn that much unless it damaged them when you hit the tree.
