My 2003 rincon is slipping in high gear , is this something that can be adjusted or how hard is it to replace? Does anyone have a blown-up diagram of the clutch assembly?if you do please email to my email address firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
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.
