Unhappy 1994 Honda Fourtrax 300

Hello, I am new to this forum, I have done some trading for a Honda Fourtrax 300 2x4 four wheeler when I got it the kickstart was making a ratteling noise, well pulled the right side cover off with a friend whom knows some about atv repair and he fixed it. We went to start it up lastnight and started fine but would not go into gear. Went in gear prior to removing. Any suggestions? Thank You for your help.

i would bet you did not put it back together right !!..everything has to be put back right..or it won't shift..from the shift shaft arm to the change clutch..to the reverse lever...all of this has to be right...or it won't shift !.

take it back apart..be careful not to tear the gasket up..i'm sure you may have done this some ?!..lol. ( hondabond or yamabond fixes this ). get the side cover off..remove the reverse lever from the case..you need to unbolt the 10mm bolt..then get the outside lever off the shaft..tap the shaft off..inside..keep up with the thrust washer !!!..you need this !!. this shaft has a spring..pay attention to the way it wraps around the lever !!..carefully incert it back into the engine..with the spring wraped right..the long end faces forward..you can only push it in so far..then carefully lift the spring up..and into the engine case with a screw driver..as you tap it in with a hammer..once this is done..take the shifting arm that was on the shift shaft poking through the case..look inside..see where the shaft is poking just through the case ?..right next to it..is an arrow stamped into the case..it faces the shift shaft..slide the arm back onto the shaft..and put that arrow facing the index punch mark thats stamped on the outter side of the arm facing that arrow...now..take the metal bracket that has a V in it..and set it inside the change clutch..its easier if you have the atv tilted over to the left..at about 45 degree's..this makes it easier to set the change clutch bracket back in the change clutch lifter bearing..the V faces down on the metal wheel..don't forget to face the 3 ball metal bracket and spring the right way !!. once you set that in..check your kick starter..and make sure you have it pre-loaded right ?. install the thrust washers on the reverse lever..shift shaft..and your kick starter...THESE HAVE TO BE ON THERE !!. put some grease all around all the shafts..carefully tape the side cover back on..hook everything back up..adjust the free play in your clutch..and then it should work.

Went and worked on my four wheeler tonight and found that when we put the shifting rod in that it was one tooth off. Thank You all for your help.
