How does it shift
it's kinda like an automatic..lol..it has a foot shift on the left hand side..or should have it !!..lol..and on that same side..there should be a shift lever with a knob on it....in the middle position is low if i remember ?..then when you push it forward..it goes to high..and all the way back..is for reverse..i may have the positions backwards ??..sorry..it's been along time sinse i have worked on one !..lol..here's what i do remember..after it starts...you just lift up on the foot peg shifter..it's got a 5 speed tranny..also..i don't rememeber if it's up shift ?..or down ?..sorry bro...either way..you just push or lift through all gears...when you get back to nuetral..reach down on the bigger shift lever that has a knob on it..push it foward or backwards...you may have a hard time doing this..sometimes you have to put some pressure with the foot shifter at the same time to get the bigger knob to move ...once it moves..then you just go back to shifting again with your foot..these bikes are made with a 10 speed tranny..yes..you heard me correct..10 speed's..5 high..and 5 low..you just can't use all of the gears speeds at the same time. hope this helps.

Welcome to the forums. Yes, it has an auto-clutch. There's no lever to pull in. As you move the foot shifter to change gears, the foot shifter is attached to linkage on the inside of the transmission that disengages the clutch automatically. Just shift as you normally would on any manual clutch quad or bike, except you don't have to worry about pulling a clutch lever. Just accelerate until you need to shift into the next gear and then let off the throttle and shift into the next gear and then hit the throttle again.

As Shadetree was saying, that model has ten gears............5 low gears and 5 high gears, plus reverse. Down on the left side of the quad, you will see a shifter with a plastic knob. This is how you shift from low range to high range to reverse. Before using this shifter, make sure the ATV is stopped and in neutral. To shift into low range, pull up on the plastic knob and move the shifter all the way forward. To shift into high range, put the shifter in the straight up position. To shift into reverse, put the shifter in the rearward position. Then, push down on the shifter to engage reverse. You may have to rock the ATV a little to get the shifter to engage. Never try to move this shifter while the ATV is moving in gear. Once you have the transmission in the range you want, you will then shift with the foot shifter. All the way up is neutral. To upshift, push down on the shifter. To downshift, pull up on the shifter. This model shifts backwards as compared to most models.

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.

That's a classic quad you have there, the first made by Honda in fact. Only made in 1984

Yep, '84 was the first and only year they made that model. That was my first quad. I owned a couple Odysseys and a lot of dirt bikes before that, but the '84 Fourtrax 200 was my first quad.
