420FM hard shifting

Hi all, I have a 2007 Rancher 420FM and it has recently become incredibly hard to shift through the gears and nearly impossible to get out of reverse, is this an issue of clutch adjustment or something worse, any ideas out there would help. Thanks

I would start by adjusting the clutch. Instructions should be in your service manual or I think even the owners manual will tell you.

Yes, it sounds like a clutch adjustment is needed.

Ok, so there is a little more to the story of the hard shifting. My buddy swamped the machine, like water up over the seat, so we checked the oil and the crankcase is full of water so we drain and change the oil 4 times with the anticipation that all the water is out, adjust the clutch and the machine is still hard to shift as described above, hard to get out of reverse, into neutral and into 3rd gear. Is the transmission oil shared with the engine or is it separate? Any help would be great!
