Tranny slipping

Hey guys i have a problem with my trans slipping on occasion. I have an 06 680 and i can let it warm up for a few minutes and then take off down the road and sometimes it will start slipping when it gets to about 40 mph but it will only do it when i first take off after its only been running a few minutes. But on a more consistent note, If i have it in 4 wheel drive and im powering through some mud/water wide open in first gear it will begin to slip after going 10 yards through it. Especially if i have the front end up in the air going threw fairly deep water. Then i can stop and let it come back to idle and sit there for a sec and it will be ready to go again... Also im not sure if this is normal or not but after it warms up i can stab the throttle and it will rev up before it takes off almost as if its like a stall converter? Im wondering if i have some o rings starting to go bad.. What you guys think? I have no mods other than 26 inch tires and i only have about 75 miles on this oil. Oil level is slightly over the full line

Check your oil.

a) It should be just above the full mark on the dipstick, and it is, good.
b) You should be running the proper oil. Honda oil is pretty safe, but I've always ran Amsoil 0w40 Formula Four Stroke oil
c) Only use a Honda filter. Others may flow different and cause problems.

If that checks out, you could be onto something with the O-rings. But to be honest, after almost 4 years away from the Rincon's I'm not as sharp as I used to be. Head over to Honda Rincon Forum : RinconRiders Honda Rincon Forums and either ask there or do a search. That is a great knowledge base for Rincon owners.

Are you checking the oil doing the procedure in the owners manual? What weight of oil are you using? Did it just start doing this after the oil change?

1) Yes i am using the proper procedure
2) 10w 40 atv oil. Not honda but its N2 high performance atv oil
3) Kinda... I did a full rebuild on the engine and put about 50 miles on it to break it in and then changed the oil and after the break in procedure. I though it was slipping just a bit when while riding it pretty easy to break it in but after i have broke it in and started givin it **** i can really feel the slipping as i previously described. I have checked the oil and it still looks and feels brand new. Its got bout 75 miles on the oil thats in it now.

Do you know around how much a dealership would charge to check the oil pressure? Or is it something else you think?

Also i read about your place catching on fire.. Man i feel for you there thats just a terrible thing to happen... I hope that everything is working out the best it can!

Did you have the bottom end torn apart? If so possibly an oring was missed or got pinched. I recommend 10w30 in the Rincons, they seem to operate better. As far as what a dealer would charge you would have to call and ask, to many price differences out there to guess on that.

On the fire, thanks. As long as Honda doesn't screw us around too much we should be up in full force in a different building in a couple months.

Yes the bottom end was apart and i didnt replace the o rings because on visual inspection they appeared fine but who knows i wish i had replaced them... But it shouldnt be the torque converter or the clutches should it? Im scared if that torque converter i know it fetches a pretty penny....

It sounds like an o-ring isn't sealing (the early 650 had problems with the oil pump o-rings and about the same symptoms). I would start with removing the front cover and checking the oil pump o-rings. Might even blow some compressed air through the oil pump pick up tube while your there to make sure it's clear (I don't think that is any thing to worry about but you'll be there anyways).

Do I have to pull the engine or can it be done in the frame?
