2000 Honda Foreman Will Not Shift


Recommended Posts

I have a 2000 (or 99 I cant remember) Honda Foreman 400. I recently got it stuck and upon getting it out of the mud and water I could not get it to shift back into neutral, and it is impossible to start the quad unless it is in neutral. I have tried rocking it, shifting up then down, and just about every other trick I could think of. Any suggestions as to what's going on here?

Those machines have a funny gear shifting setup, there is a 90 degree joint in the gear shifting spindle. It could very easily get messed up. I would take the side cover off and look behind the gear shift lever, that joint is right on the other side of the cover. If all looks to be working ok on that side, take the other cover off, the gear shift ratchet mechanism is behind that cover. If all of that is working too, then you may have an internal tranny problem and you will need to split the cases to deal with that one. I think it is a good possibility that you will find the problem under one of the side covers. Good luck.
