HELP foreman 450s won’t shift out of first when running?

Recommended Posts

2001 Honda foreman 450s manual shift. i can shift through the gears when the ATV is off, but when I turn it on, I can shift into first, but I cannot shift to second or even back to neutral. Same with reverse. I can get it into reverse but cannot shift out. If i turn it off it will shift back fine, any idea? I just bought this and fear I got screwed over.

Hey @Billy Aldrich welcome to Quadcrazy. So what's happening here ? Is the engine idling ok and not too high where it could just be an idle adjustment ? Thats a semi automatic, Just a foot lever shifter yes ? 
 

I would think the clutch has something to do with this problem where you may need to open the side cover and take a look to see if its jammed up or stuck in any way. 
I would also drain the oil and see how it looks as far as any metal parts/shavings from a blown gear etc. 

But before all that:    
Can you explain how you think you got screwed? Did you purchase it from someone that may not have been honest with the mechanical condition? 
And can you bring it back?

      My machine sticks in reverse until it is completely warmed up and then it shifts perfectly once it is completely warm. I have to literally yank up on the shifter to get it out of reverse. It will shift up and down fine in the forward gears just not reverse. It's a 2005 Honda Foreman TRX500FM5. I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction. I tried searching it but didn't come up with anything.
      Thanks in advance.
      Cheers Don.

      Not sure if this is the right place to ask this but I have. 2000 Honda Forman 450es that was my fathers. When he passed away I figured I’d put some work into it. It’s been setting a while but figured it would be a good project for me and my son  
      Just found out that the display speedometer has been discontinued and I’m having a hard time finding one on eBay  I was curious if anyone knew if any other year model would work on this bike ?

      Just bought this Honda quad and when I first drove it the steering seemed very hard.  Those that I talked to said that's normal as it's full time 4 wheel drive.  Well yesterday while looking from the front is looked like the front tires were pointing out quite abit.  I measured the toe and was toe-out by a little over an inch.  Yikes so this morning decided to try an adjustment and after an hour or so had the toe-out to 1/4".  Took for a test drive and the steering was alot easier, still not like driving a 2 wheel drive but made a huge difference.  There are differences as to what the toe should be set to but so far this seems to do the trick.
