Welcome to the forums. . .. In 2005/2006 Honda recalled their 400EXs for this problem
2005 & 2006 TRX400EX

Washington, DC (12/14/05) - The following product safety recall was voluntarily conducted by the firm in cooperation with the CPSC. Consumers should stop using the product immediately unless otherwise instructed.
Product: Honda Model Year 2005 and 2006 TRX400EX ATVs Units: About 24,000
Manufacturer: American Honda Motor Corp. Inc., of Torrance, Calif.
Hazard: A safety defect could exist in the transmission that could allow the rider to downshift from 1st gear into reverse without operating the reverse assist (lockout) lever. The reverse lockout spring may not have been properly installed. Unintended engagement of reverse gear while moving forward could lock the rear wheels and cause the rider to lose control.

You should be able to make this repair "in Frame"
In your case the spring may have came off or is broken??
