Honda Rancher 350es Shifting Problems

Hey there. I have a 2004 Honda Rancher 350es with some shifting problems. Sometimes it shifts up, sometimes it doesnt. And usually when I shift up, I cant shift down from 1 to Neutral so I have to kill the engine on my quad, shift down into neutral and then start it back up. Should I check the wiring? New clutch? I just got a new angle sensor so I dont think its the problem. Thanks

Sounds like that could be a good reason for the problem. Thanks! I'll try it out and let you know what happens!

i think you have to remove the shift motor in order to get the gear box cover off ?..no..there is no oil under the cover.

You may need to dissasemble the electric shift motor and clean and lube it. Also, I notice that mine has a hard time shifting into and out of R and 1 if the idle is too high.

honestly, I think the problem is with the shift motor. Im gonna try to do something with that first and see if it works better. My speedometer is water damaged, kinda broken, rusted, missing capacitors, etc. I heard that that could affect shifting because of a messed up computer so maybe that could be the problem. Im almost positive that the problem is electrical
