trx450es shifting problems

hello, i am the owner of a 2000 trx450es with 2900 work,mud and enjoyable trail miles.(very tough and reliable machine!) I do not have reverse anymore (worked in the a.m. and didn't work in the afternoon) and i am looking for suggestions as to what might have happened and how to fix it. The shifter solenoid still "clicks" and i still have forward gears. Is this the right place to post this message? Thanks

Welcome to the forums. Have you tried to shift into reverse manually by using the manual shifter that came with the ATV? If you can't shift into reverse manually, you may need to adjust your reverse lockout cable. The cable might not be pulling the reverse lever up all the way when you push the red button and pull in the brake lever.

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.

You had the red button pushed in and the brake lever pulled back while you were trying to manually shift into reverse, right? If so, I would try adjusting the reverse lockout cable. It might not be pulling the reverse lever up enough for it to go into reverse. Also, try rocking the ATV back and forth a little while you're trying to shift it into reverse.

ADDED: If it goes into reverse when rocking it, you need to adjust the clutch freeplay.

I pressed the red button and pulled the lever, it makes the manual shift lever on the side move but does not go into reverse.Rocking the machine and/or adjusting the cable does not make a difference either. Any other suggestionsare greatly appreciated. I will check tomorrrow,thanks. Have a nice holiday.
