It sounds like your a little low on oil. The Rincon doesn't have a clutch. Also since its an 03 model you might have to have the o-rings in the trans replaced. This was a common problem on the 03's and early 04's. You should checkout rinconriders.com for more info on this problem.

One of the magazines suggested that this machine needs frequent oil changes. The tranny runs hot under heavy loads, and toasts the oil. Classic symptom is a slipping trans.............

What oil you using and when did you change it last??????

The Rincon doesn't have a clutch, but a torque converter like in a car. Sounds like you might be low on oil. The engine oil also work in the tranny. If you are low in engine oil, the tranny will be the first to let you know. Check it out first

It also may be the O rings that are causing you trouble. Does it seem like it won't shift in 3 as it should, like 3 gear isn't working. If so it's the valve O rings in the tranny. Honda had a recall on this problem and changed them during the 04 production. Mine had this problem and were replaced at no charge from the dealer.

There was no recall issued for this. Yes there were more than a couple machines that had this problem and Honda is aware of it. However no recall was ever issued but most dealers are aware to check the o-rings if there are shifting and torque converter problems. Recall are issued for safety related problems, not for torn o-ring inside the engine.

Yes, your correct, it was a service bulletin that was informing the dealers of the problem and what to check for.
