Shifting Becoming Difficult over Time


dkenne

Recommended Posts

I have a Honda Recon 250 (2001, I think). I purchased a plow for it this winter with helpful advice from members of the forum and plowing has been a breeze. However, the atv is manual shift and as I am out in the cold plowing, it becomes increasingly difficult to shift into forward gear (lifting up on the lever).

I was wondering if this was common in cold weather, and is there a way to adjust the lever or lubricate something in order to prevent the shifting from becoming so difficult. Unfortunately, I have to continuously shift from forward to reverse and back again in order to plow the driveway. Eventually, over time (about 30 minutes) I have to reach down and pull up hard on the shift lever to get back into forward gear.

Any suggestions/ideas? (I inherited this atv, my next atv will be automatic).

Thanks is advance.

      What's the best kids atv out there? I've seen everything from the ones released by the major manufacturers to all those knock offs. Kawasaki has a KFX 50 that is pretty nice for under $1800...

      Gday all,
       
      Been trying a couple different ways now to download a manual. Not sure what I am doing wrong but could someone walk me thru it?
      I go to DL page and click on link
      get a pop up for a PDfixer or something
      close that and then hit download button and no go
      tells me I have reached my limit but I have never DL anything ever.

      Anyone purchase or check out Rockymtnatv lately? Well I was just browsing over there and they have a pretty cool section called Ten Dollars Or Less. Some interesting things to check out if you are in the market.

      Hello, im looking for some input on this situation i have. My 94 Mojave has no spark, and i have no idea what it is. Ive replaced/tested the magneto, the pickup coil, cdi, the ignition coil. Even the key and Killswitch. I haven't tested the harness its self, but i have tried another harness and still nothing. The only thing i can think of is the fly wheel itself. I have found a lot of metal shavings in the fly wheel and have cleaned it the best I could. But nothing happened afterwards. I am truly stumped here and hoping some of yous could shed some knowledge/ideas that could help get this thing to fire.

      Hey I have a 1997 big bear 350 4x4
      I replaced the shifter shaft and the shift arm linkage and the rod when I installed them all I was unaware that you had to line the dot on the shifter shaft with the gap on the linkage arm gap put it all back  together and rode it I can't get it to shift in the right gears  I can move the shift cam by hand and goes in different gears but with the shifter shaft in it riding I can't put it in R or N 
      Anyone know how to line up the shifter shaft and the shift cam s
