Hello All, new to this forum. I have a steep hillside property use ATV for hauling wood, maple sap, utility tasks. Bought a used 2004 Honda Foreman Rubicon in 2016. By the end of 2018 the hondamatic went bad, clanging sound when driving, wouldnt shift. I tried fixing it with a friend in his shop but its now just sitting there with engine out. Trying to figure out what to do. Buy new hondamatic and replace? New engine? Sell for parts and buy new/used ATV. Any input appreciated. Thanks

Welcome to the forum. I’m not sure, maybe someone with experience with the mechanic repairs on them will jump in soon.

Could be your oil pump chain or your Hondamatic bearing went out,on they are both common issue
Never heard of one clanging though -could be something else-
Most of the long time Honda wheeler experts have migrated off of these generic forums and are over at atvhonda.com now
I highly recommend coming over for quick accurate help with your Rubicon
Its free and they have downloadable Factory Service manuals as well
Come over and well help you sort it out
