2013 trx400x second gear issue?

Sup guys just got an issue picked up this 2013 trx400x for 750$. Yeah thats not a typo. got it running and second gear is acting up. Theres a rattling clunking type sound coming from the bottom end clutch cover side. Pull in the clutch lever it goes away. Itll go into second but makes a clunking sounds and it bucks a little. idling in neutral youll hear a clunk and chain will jump (barely) but enough to notice. 1st 3rd 4th 5th are all good, drained oil checked for shavings whole 9 yards. on uneven surfaces such as a trail itll take a second to get it into first, but i rode it all day pretty hard and didnt have an issue besides not using second. thinking shifter fork? just looking for advice and costs on average

and before you say '' shade..i think its the clutch ?! '' , no..its not the clutch, or it would not even run period until you fixed the clutch.

I agree with shade. Until you pull it apart and split cases we are just guessing. How does reverse work? There was a recall on the 05 on the reverse interlock return spring. Being that you have a 2013 it will already be there but It is possible if that spring broke it could cause shifting issues. And there are a few instances i have heard of that that spring issue caused second gear issues. Not entirely sure why. Concidering reverse is one down from 1st gear. But i do know when that whole recall thing was happening they would go into reverse without turning the reverse lever. Just a thought. And thank you for your service! When you get back and start the build feel free to hit us up for questions.
