4th gear bad in 07 Honda Rancher

I have 2 2007 Ranchers, one foot shift and one ES and fourth gear is bad in both. I have the transmission completely apart and am going to order the gears. Which gears should I replace to fix this problem? On the countershaft it looks like I need to replace the C3 and C4 and on the mainshaft maybe the M4?

You should be able to see on the gears what is worn/bent/broke. I have to say this is the first I have heard of this problem on the 420, let alone 2 of them. It just depends on what parts that are bad on which ones to replace.

Welcome to the forum.

1988 300 (old stock machine, nothing fancy)
2009 420FA (25x8/10x12 BearClaw HTR) ---------
1987 350D (work in progress)

Thanks for the welcome, I would think it was rare too, if the identical thing had not happened to both. I run mobil 1 synthetic motorcycle oil, I almost wonder if its too slick which allowed the dogs to slip that one time. Once they slip once it rounds off the edges and its too late after that.
