They aren't meant to start in gear, so the problem is in the gear change adjustment or the neutral light switch, which I think will be on the engine/gearbox, or possibly on the change lever.  Does it have a reverse light, and does the reverse light come on when it's in reverse? If the reverse light isn't coming on in reverse then it's real likely the adjustment.

It won't be the starter motor.

Get a manual  off here or somewhere online, check the position of the shifter is adjusted right , then look for the neutral/reverse switch, which could be two separate switches. The switches on most bikes are easy to get at and out if need be if they are in the gearbox.

      Hello All !
      I am looking for a service manual and wiring diagram for a 2005 50cc Polaris Predator 4 wheeler.
      Could anyone help with this?

      I picked up a 2000 Big Bear 400 4X4 that was sitting around that I know nothing about. It will not start. I do have a red light when in reverse. When I take it out of reverse, I do not get a green neutral light, and when I push the start button the red oil light comes on but there are no noises, nothing else happens. How do I test the neutral switch and/or bypass it to see if I can get it to at least crank? And does anyone have other suggestions for me to try?

      Hi, I am having issues with my TRX350D fuel pump.  It suddenly stopped running so I have replaced all the fuses and cleaned all the terminals.  I have fitted a new pump, fuel cut-off relay and rectifier.  Still nothing!!  The pump runs when attached to a battery.  The engine will start on the choke and the filter fills with fuel but it will  not rev and dies when the choke is closed. I have power to the relay but nothing at the pump black/white wire when cranking the engine.  Any ideas where to go from here would be very much appreciated!!
