1999 Sportsman 500 Shifting Problem


Recommended Posts

Dream Car Giveaway

There are two adjustable linkage rods, one is for low range, the other is for high range and reverse. I would assume that the neutral position is between the formward and reverse positions. So if you can get from neutral to reverse or from neutral to forward, but you don't have enough throw to get all the way from forward to reverse, then I would think you have some excessive freeplay in the shifting mechanism somewhere. It could be the linkage itself, the shift lever, or even inside the gearbox, the shift forks could be worn or maybe the forks are working in overly worn grooves. If you can't adjust to the point where you can hit both gears, I would start inspecting every part of the shifting mechanisms starting at the shift lever itself and check for excessively worn parts.
