just bought a 03 rancher es and it wont go in gear with the es so we tried it with the manual shifter, it sounds like it goes in gear (it clicks) but it wont pull, still sounds like it is in neutral when you give it the gas. Does anyone have any idea or had this problem before.. Thanks

Obviously it's going into gear...you're just not getting anything to the wheels. Have you tried it in 4x4...to rule out rear driveline issues?

Did you buy it like this? or were you riding it when this happened? If so what were you riding in?

Also when you put it in gear manually do you hear any odd noises coming from the driveline?

If I had to guess the clutch is way out of adjustment or is smoked. Did The machine ever have over sized tires?

When you said that you fixed the clutch,did that solve the problem with your bike catching in gear and moving forward.I'm having the exact same problem except my es works fine but no matter if I shift it manually or with the es the bike will not move and yes I did adjust my clutch and yes I run oversize tires.Should I just change out the clutch?
