Welcome to the forums from OK. Theres a few guys that might be able to help you. Also it might help to download a service manual for your machine, making sure to get the correct model and year.

when you turn the bike on and start it, does the shift indicator blink? if so how many times? count those blinks and that will tell you the diagnostic trouble code, look it up in the manual and that will tell you what you need to repair.

in the shop.

Put the quad in the dealership today they think it could be a angle sensor. Is this a regular problem with Honda. The maintenance guy seemed like this is nothing to worry about. I want to know why the sensor would go and is this a regular problem . There is only 380km on the bike .

Yeah, it's not that uncommon for an angle sensor to go bad.

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

Just wondering if there is a way to just bypass or eliminate this sensor. Sounds to me like something that fails this often needs to go away permanently. Where exactly is the sensor located?
