01 foreman 450es won,t move

When I put it in gear it jerks like it went in but will rev up like it,s in neutral. I adjusted the clutch then found I have very little power to front wheels and none to the back.

Look in the manual and see if you can adjust the clutch. You will loosen the lock nut, turn the set screw until you feel tension, then back it off 1/4 turn and lock it back down.

If that aint it, then you likely need a new clutch.

Check for a stuck brake. Could be simple.. Are you running oversize tires?

The brakes are not stuck. Tires are stock size. The front drive shaft does spin but will not move the bike. The back does not seem to have any power at all. I've been away from my computer. Thanks for your help

The front shaft might move because the bike is in 2x4. Lock in 4x4 and i bet it stops moving. Still sounds like clutch.

Front axle was broke. Now the front wheels pull the bike but still nothing to the rear wheels.

At this point you need to give all the details. The front axle was broken. You just found that out, or you knew that before?

Please detail exactly what you know, specifically. Spare no bit of information no matter how insignificant it seems.

The front axle popped 3 or 4 times, then the bike quit pulling itself. The left front axle inner joint had come apart. Just about a quarter inch of the splines were catching. I removed it put the joint back together and it seems to be fine now. The back wheels are still not pulling. I don't know when it started, there has been no problems until this with the front. I jacked up the rearend and spun the wheels. There is a slight bumping noise that sounds like it is coming from the gear case. I pulled the boot back and the rear drive shaft is turning.

No. I removed the rear axle, and the ring gear is spinning. It looks like the splines are worn out or stripped.
