ATV: 2007 400 4x4
Question shifting problems

Today i went to start it up drove it around for a little, i switched it into reverse and when i went to switch it back into high gear it would not switch. it keeps getting stuck an shift out of reverse. anybody have any ideas on why its doing that or how to fix it ?
Thanks

do some reading on the shift linkage,its probably out of adjustment,its possible the gears are on there way,or are out.thats what i would check out. other than that really dunno. good luck

just read your post again,if its an 07 its probably just out of adjustment,unless you beat the snot out of it lol.not sure how to adj it but im sure its all over the internet

Yup as said adjust the shifter linkage. Your idle may need to be adjusted also. I'd say it is the linkage though.

thats true,but it might have the tiny ass gear,with tiny teeth right where it goes into motor,maybe those are stripped,so it doesnt push it all the way to where it wants to be.most likely not but its possible. there is a screw on the banjo looking fitting,1 adjusts one locks,i know on my motorcycles there are the screws,i have never played with them but im pretty sure they are to make little adjustments now and then

Unless its different from the 2002 400 manual I once had there is no shift linkage adjustments. Only the Heel/toe shifter attached directly to the shift input shaft at the transmission. You can adjust the position of the heel/Toe shifter on the shaft though if it bottoms out on the floor boards before the shift is made.

My 06 does this when warming up and idling high. Just engage the clutch by trying to shift down, then shift out of reverse and let go the shift. Anything over about 1800 rpm causes this on my bike so check to see if your idle is too high.

If it does it at low RPM then I'd do what Wyo mentioned.

check the splines on the shifter and the shaft to make sure they are not stripped.
