Another suggestion is put some miles on it and get it broke in
. All seem a little stiff when new. After the 20 hour break in period, you may wish to switch to a syn based oil......it really helped mine.</end quote></div>
This is a brand new Rancher 420????
It needs to get broken in hard! Putting around will never break it in properly. Your clutch and a whole lot of other things will be very stiff until it gets broken in. Get out and do some trail riding!
Seeing you are a newb, get some instruction from an experienced rider, and take a safety course! Do at least 10-20 hours on the trail, then follow the clutch adjustment procedure in the owner's manual.
Be sure you do the valve adjustment at 20 hours as well!
