By terrain, do you mean from dry land to mud or water? I don't know anything about the rancher at, but I'm sure someone here might have some experience.

I had that problem on my Rancher but a new angle sensor fixed it.

You might be best served if you can find a dealer you can trust.

Flawless, that sentence/paragraph was worthy of Alan Greenspan!

A buddy had a similar problem with his Rancher. I'll ask him about it at the Barley House this evening and will PM you.

I sold my Rinny and won't buy another one until Honda puts out a stronger motor.

She had a squeak in the left rear one time.. rode it for hours like that, I come to find the left rear bearing ... disintegrated, gonzo, and because of it the brake was partially applied, best power was in 1 and 2, and gutless after that, but she didnt tell me, I had to hear if from behind.... I now test ride it more often to ensure that wont happen again. From the sounds of it your higher gear clutches may have taken a crap... check the rear end real close. Wheel off and look at the tube real good with a light. That seal if moved will allow water and crap to build up inside the tube... a mess.

I would check battery connections or try putting the battery on a battery tender and see if the battery is fully charged. My two cents.
