I take it that the electric shift doesn't work either, does it do anything? Do you hear a noise or anything that indicates that the shift servo is trying to work? Doesn't the shop manual tell you how to read the codes? By shop manual, do you mean the owners manual or do you have an actual repair manual? You need a repair manual, the owners manual isn't good for much more than telling you what kind of oil to put in it. I have no idea what the flash codes mean, but if the machine won't even shift manually, I would guess that either your clutch is faulty, out of adjustment, or you have bent shift forks or some other damage to the gearshift mechanism. I would start at the clutch since it is easier to get to and it can be adjusted from what I understand. The shop manual should tell you how to do it. If that doesn't help you could remove the side cover and inspect the shift ratchet. If it is a bent shift fork, or shift drum problem, you would have to get inside the motor.

It's more than likely a thing called the ' shift angle sensor' I have replaced HUNDREDS of them over the years. Dealer part, not too expensive... screws into the back of the case above the swingarm. betcha a quarter that's it!:yes:

Would a sensor keep him from being able to shift the machine manually with the emergency wrench? Seems like the sensor would only affect the electric shift.

yes, actually it can, if the sensor fails during an electric shift. It jams the shift forks and shuts off the actuator motor. annoying as heck! I've seen it many times... recons too.

I see, that makes perfect sense. I have heard of people having chronic problems with these electric shift systems. Ironically, a friend of mine has an '04 Rancher 350 ES, and it has been horribly mistreated, however, the electric shift is the one thing that has always worked.

      Anyone ever replaced the shifter shaft on one? Not sure on the year but assuming it is in the late 90's. Is it a huge task, splitting the case etc... thinking about buying it as my next project.
       
      Thanks

      Picked this beauty up for zero dollars this weekend. It has been passed around several of my son's friends and the last kid was just tired of tinkering with it.  Mostly complete 96 300FW. The pic is my boy robbing the swing arm and rear diff for his 300 for a big memorial weekend ride. Wiring is garbage at the battery, kick start doesnt work, no coil, smoked like cheech and chong when it ran last. I figure a couple hundred and a few hours and this will be ready to ride. Journey will be documented on Instagram at @martincyclellc if ya wanna follow along.

      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.

      Unfortunately this weekend we waived goodbye to the 99 400ex.  Ported and polished head, DMC Alien exhaust with dual header, an absolute unit that would run 70 on the top end.  Fortunately though the 400ex left in exchange for a fairly cherry 98 Honda 300..the holy grail of reliability in a mud and water toy.  Previous owner added the snorkels and it was a decent job.  Put some 25" swamp witches on it, now it just needs 1" spacers, 2" bracket lift, couple of pinion seals and a pound or two of dielectric grease.  Hate to let the 400ex go as it was a gem, but it's hard to pass on a cherry 300.  These things are just so dang reliable and easy to work on.

      I bought a Honda 250sx 1986 but the exhaust is broken. Apparently it's not possible to order a new one. I checked to order one on others compagny but there's noting.
      Do you know which exhaust it's possible to install. Is there a company who sold an exaust to fit on my 250sx.
      Sorry for my english
      Thank you

      Im working on a old 1987 honda 125 4 wheeler in the school shop. It will start by getting pulled by another 4 wheeler but wont start with the pull start or Electric Start. When you pull start it it tries to start but when you try the electric start it just turns over but doesnt even act like it wants to start. The spark plug is dry and it shoots fuel out of the back(air filter side) of the carb. Weve had the carb off twice and it is complety clean. What are some things we can try?

      Hello I am new hear. I just purchased a 1998 Big Bear. It was sitting for 3yrs in storage. The guy I bought it from got the carb cleaned and it runs good. I am having problems with the neutral light. When I shift into neutral the light does not come on. If I mess with the gear shifter, I can get it to come on so I can start it. I can still pull the hand brake and start it that way. I cant find the neutral safity switch on this machine. Any suggestions would be great.
