Im thinking you have to pull the cylinder to get to the trans gears, is this a correct assumption?

Honda has a 6 month factory warranty I believe, and if it is something with the tranny I think I would let them foot the bill, there is no reason for the tranny to be going out already, what exactly did you do anyway?

under a heavy load (up a trailer, water wheelie) something pops, feels, sounds like its in the trans. This seems to happen in 1st gear, although I havent tried to do anything tough in any other gear. IM thinking it could be the u joint maybe?? Only seems to happen when the wheeler is going "up".
I jus gave it a good bath, and I plan to inspect the U Joint, if this is indeed the bad apple, what should I be looking for?

And I do have the remaining 2-3 mos of the factory warranty, but then I gotta tear everything down to stock, then wait for the idiots at the stealership to get it right. I would rather fix it myself I think.

It could be something in the the rearend also and it takes the torque of first gear to make it pop. With the lift though it could very well be a u joint. I would look for excessive play in the joint.

The swingarm has to be removed to inspect the universal joint & transmission spline .. and the rearend should be removed to inspect the pinion spline ..

On my 06,foreman 500 it'll make a pop noise when you punch it in 1st gear .
It's got a High Lifter lift kit,and 28" outlaws. on mine all it is it makes the ass end of the 4-wheeler come up and it makes the suspension let all the way out and it bottoms outs. that maybe the noise and the feeling that your having.
