Im having the same problem with my 06 400 i had to push the shaft forward into the differential and put a steel hose clamp around it to keep it in place i there must be some kind of circlip or snapring thats missing on the shaft.

On my 06 700 there was a spring that pushed the shaft forward to keep it engaged, not sure if yours is missing. If it came apart on you it might of shot out and got lost. Go to the factory parts breakdown for your model and see if the spring is missing, if it is order a new one and you should be GTG. Hope this helps

Yes i bet your right... when i bought the bike the shaft was already off and they never gave me no other parts im sure the right spring would work perfect.
