Question foreman 400 stuck in reverse

Newbee here, my 1999 Foreman 4x4 is used mostly in the winter with a snow blade to move snow.
Yesterday I was going in reverse and stopped and then tried to kick it back into neutral and then into gear but nothing happened it is stuck in reverse.

Any ideas?

Welcome to the forums. I'm assuming you already tried rocking the ATV back and forth. I would pull the front crankcase cover off and check the shift linkage. If nothing is wrong with the shift linkage, you will have to split the transmission to find the problem.

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 don't think any of the 400s were electric shift, just manual shift.

I will pull the front crankcase cover off and check the shift linkage and hope thats all it is, but before I can do this any help to get it back into neutral if thats possible, to get it into my garage.
P.S is a manual shift.

I don't know of anyway to get it in neutral without taking the front cover off. With the front cover off, you should be able to turn the shift drum and put it in neutral, unless the problem is in the transmission itself.

When in reverse it should push forward without the engine holding it back because of the one-way clutch, but it won't be as easy to push as if it was in neutral.

Thanks Helmut
I guess I'll roll up my sleeves get some help and start pushing.
Its a good thing I only have to push it 75ft; I could'nt imagine pushing this ATV any further.

Cheers
