as for the price..no clue what your dealer will charge you..if i was to guess..i would say about 40 bucks for the shifting rod..and about 25 or 30 for the lever...as for replacing them..nothing to it..you just have to pull both side covers off..it slides in from the left...goes all the way through the engine to the right side..and you line up the clutch shifting arm mare on the end of it...it will have a punch mark on the inside of the case..you line up the punch mark that's on the end of the shifting shaft to the arrow thats on the case..slide the clutch shifting arm onto the shaft..easy to do..you may or may not need new side cover gaskets...depends if you tear up the side cover gaskets when you remove the side covers.

The easy fix is to cross drill both pieces (while they're together) and drive a roll pin through them.

I hate to be the one to bring you bad news, but if this is a 400EX, I think you have to split the case to install the shift spindle assembly. Shadetree's instructions were for a utility ATV.

Most 4-wheeler problems are caused by a loose nut connecting the handlebars and the seat!!

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.

i looked at the parts fiche and i think you are right i think they are going to have to split the case. i also need a new starter clutch installed. you got any idea how much it would on average cost or how many hours it would take to have a local shop tear it down and fix it??

I'm not that experienced with them either. LOL. I've worked on a few, but mostly utility ATVs.

Haven't you heard? Why you were gone to Tennessee to get that 300 4X4, we all elected you to take care of the auto tranny and sport quad questions. LMAO!!
