2008 Honda Rancher ES

4 posts in this topic

I have about 230 miles on the 2008 Honda rancher es. I like my atv a lot, but noticed that when you first start up the atv and start going it doesn't shift right away when the button is pushed. It seems like the machine needs to warm up, but once it has, it shifts like it is supposed to.

Has anyone else noticed this on their es system??

We've got a 03' beat up old rancher with 7000 miles in the garage, and the only time I've had any es trouble was ice fishing when its 10 below or colder. when it wouldnt work I just used the foot shifter. Hopefully the problem you have isnt a sighn to come once it gets cold. It should still be under warranty if it becomes a real problem

It isn't all the time, actually i just rode the atv and it didn't have the shift delay.

I don't own an ES model but I have heard that warm up is important to good shifting for two reasons. One being oil, in that it is thicker when cold so shifting takes more effort for the shift motor, and if battery voltage is slightly low (due to sitting for an extended time) a short period of idling brings it up quickly. I'd say the lightest weight oil recommended by Honda for a given temperature would probably help as would a two or three minute warm up, which is good for any ATV before taking off.

    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.
