    Question about Honda 4Wheeler

    I just got a 2004 Honda Rancher 400 4X4 automatic.
    Just wondering if anyone has had any problems with theirs that I gotta look forward to. Only has 161 miles on it. Thanks Ben

    Re: Question about Honda 4Wheeler

    I've owned Honda ATV's before but, not an '04. Generally if it's been taken care of it should be OK. Honda ATV's are not the fastest or smoothest riding but, they are tough as nails and will last for years. Good Luck.

    Buddy of mine has the 04 rancher, you wont be disapointed with your purchase. I had a 1988 fourtrax which I gve to my brother and now have a 1995 fourtrax which has been a great machine. Honda's are one tough machine.

    Re: Question about Honda 4Wheeler

    I Inherited this bike for $3,000.00. So far no problems, A buddy of mine said to take it to the Honda shop and have the first service done. He said they go over them changing all fluids, Adjust brake, shift, and the valves. Etc. I think I will soon I got 200 miles on it now, It had 141 miles on it when we got it. My father-in-law bought it new in 04 and only put 141 miles on it in 6 years he hardly ever rode this bike. Thanks for the help folks. Ben

    Re: Question about Honda 4Wheeler

    Never a bad idea to take it in for a check up. Hondas are notorious for having a tapping noise from the valves. Even after they are adjusted. Best of luck with your machine.

    Re: Question about Honda 4Wheeler

    Thanks, It does have the valve noise only when it goes over 30 mph. I think I will take it in the next couple weeks, And get it checked over. Again thanks for the input.

    Re: Question about Honda 4Wheeler

    Poorhunter, I think you will be happy with your rancher, I bought a 04 new, It just happened to be a full time 4-by, I understand that after 04 they made them part time 4 WD. Any way keep up with the service and the Honda will not let you down. A while back there was a recall on the tie-rod ends, but honda fixed them all free! check with your dealer. I have packed deer, rocks, gear and people, winter, and summer, never a problem with the machine. The only thing that i have against it is the wide turning radius cause of the 4 wd. but not enought to buy a newer one.
    I'll post a picture,,,

    Re: Question about Honda 4Wheeler

    Hey Arid, they make a kit so you can take them out of 4 wheel drive, not sure if you knew or not? I think there around 100 bucks. Dont have one on mine, but have seriously considered it.

    Re: Question about Honda 4Wheeler

    Wow that is good service BlueDuck! Most miles I ever saw on a 4 wheeler was 13,000 on an old polaris, dont know the story behind it, could have been rebuilt a dozen times for all I know.

    Re: Question about Honda 4Wheeler

    I doubt mine will ever see that many miles without any problems. I keep the cobb webs blown out of it, If you know what I mean. I suppose if someone were to follow up on routine and preventative maintenance ( wow big words) Then they should get lots of miles. Parking indoors will also prolong the life a lot more.
    Well the Honda shop told me to bring it in for the 1st service tween 300-400 miles I got 355 miles on it now. So I probly otta get it in there pretty soon.

    You have a good bike there, can give you many years of good service. In addition to the tie rod recall for a few models in your bikes range, there was also a recall on the electric shift solenoid, if you have the electric shift.
