than , it sounds like that reverse linkage has gotten bent , so it"s not going far enough to let that little fork inside the trans. move. if you disconnect that linkage close to the trans. to see if that part that goes into the trans can be moved a little farther . keep me posted mike

With the engine off and the machine in gear, will it roll at all? Is there any noise when you put it in gear and let out the clutch with the engine running? When it is in reverse, you say in moves but slowly, does it seem like the clutch is slipping? A slipping clutch is what I first thought. It could be the clutch push rod haning up, the engagement lever could be bent or damaged.

With the engine is off I have to hold the clutch in to move it. It will go in reverse perfect, moves fast in reverse. it just moves like it is stuck in idle when it is in gear. I can put the rpms up and it still just goes like I am in an idle. I took the clutch case off. every thing looks fine. Changed the oil. It started doing this after I got stuck in the mudd. I am going to try to adjust the reverse rod to see if some thing happened with that. I do not know what else it could be.

with engine runing did you try all the gears or just first ? try it in second ant third to see what you get.

if it still does it in the higher gears, it sounds like you may have sheared a little key that lets that reverse gear slide back and forth between foreward and reverse. what your feeling when you have to pull the clutch in to push it [engine not running] is, it must still in reverse, that slider gear is not moving, even though you think is , when that key gets sheared off ,it leaves a bur ,or lets say it is just bent or deformed in some way, you may still be able to move the linkage but the gear is stuck. i think i would still look for an easier solution, but may try to move that little gear from the outside some how , before get into a complete teardown. good luck , let me hear from you................mike,pontiacjim

:biggrin: Ok, I am not sure if this is the problem. I took my clutch out and went to the atv shop and told them what was going on. After looking at the plates one of them had no grit stuff on them. While taking them out I broke one of the threaded things on the main preasure plate, nice $41.31 spent for that. Then I ended up breaking one of the fins off the primary Drive gear, $93.16 wasted on that. but I did only spend $127.70 on the rest of the clutch kit. Boy I hope this does the trick.

I would like to thank everyone that has posted with help. I am putting it in the shop for new valves and I am also going to have a new piston and rings put in it. After that is all done and the frame gets powder coated this thing is going to go up for sale with my Jeep. Thanks again for all the advice:wink:

Hi Any thoughts on this issue with my 1996 350cc 4x4 Big Bear would be very much appreciated. The bike is stuck in reverse gear. No ammount of persuasion will free it. Its currently sat in the garage where I am hoping once its cooled down it may come free. I cannot get it back into neutral and really unsure where to begin looking to rectify.

Any thoughts guys?

Hi again - further to this issue ... I let the bike cool down for around 90 minutes went back out to it, and hey presto, she clicked into neutral like there had never been a problem. Still like to hear your thoughts as to what is going on though.
