Hello from New Messico.
I am Bill, forum name 4wheeldog (Been my name on various forums for 15 years, not in reference to ATVs)
My interests are dogs, (Have 4, 2 JRTs and 2 Wire Fox Terrorists.......All of which have had rides on the new to me ATV) motorcycles and travel. I used to fly SEL for fun, but not anymore. I also do all my own mechanical work on motorcycles, trucks, cars etc.
I am older, been retired for 12 years.
Just got my first ATV, a '05 TRX500FM, about 2 weeks ago. Bought it from another ex pilot friend, and it is in good shape, though with a fair number of miles (8300). I plan to get a plow for my 300' driveway, and use it otherwise when traveling in backcountry.
I spent some time in the last couple of weeks spiffing it up........All the normal maintenance items, plus high elevation jet and idle adjustment (I live at 7200'). It runs well and I found no surprises. I enjoy forums like this, for my knowledge and for the occasional chance to help someone else.
I thought I already was a member, but I guess I am not. My name is Sean and I just moved to Pittsburgh, PA from North East Ohio. I have a Camo 2008 Foreman 500 ES w/PS. I could ride all over in Ohio, but finding it more difficult to ride in PA. I've been riding since 2010 on the same machine. It's awesome!
Hello! I Live in Nashport, Ohio - In Licking County -Just outside of Newark, Ohio. I'm originally from Northeast Ohio - Warren.
I recently purchased a 2005 Rubicon. I like it so far - Haven't really hit the trails yet as the weather really hasn't cooperated. Can't wait for Wayne National Forest to open in April. Hitting Ride Royal Blue in June.
I've had several quads - Started on a Suzuki Eiger 400 then a King Quad 450. Then went to a Honda 400EX bored out to 426 with Hot Cams, Pro Circuit Exhaust, K&N Air Filter etc. It flew, but I'm about to turn 50 and sport quads beat me up too much. So I went back to a Utility Quad. Got a good deal on this Rubicon. It's in decent shape. The guy I bought it from took pretty good care of it. No real mods except a set of ITP mud lites.
So far I'm just getting the quad ready - Changed Engine/Transmission Oil and changed differential oil. I haven't crawled under in search of grease fittings yet. Would appreciate if anyone could tell me how many and where to find them! Any other helpful hints would be appreciated!
:surprise: I am definitely a new member, this is my first Forum so all help is appreciated, thank you. I have a 2006 Honda 400 4x4 Rancher that the maintenance book was lost somewhere between buying it from a local to home. My question is where do I check for differential fluid? Thanks:|
Hello all! My name is Todd. I’m from Buffalo NY. This is the first forum that I have ever joined. I’m still trying to navigate the website. I’m not sure how to narrow down most recents. I’m sure I’ll figure it out.
I have a 2007 rancher 400.
It shifts into 1st and runs fine. As soon as I put it in 2nd gear, the shift position on the display screen switches to “ESP” and blinks 5 times. Then it’s stuck in 2nd gear. There is no mechanical gear shift. All electronic from auto shift to manual requires moving a toggle on right handle bar. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I’ll just need to figure out how to locate this entry. Thanks!
