I was on a ride yesterday and one of the guys had trouble with his ES Rancher. Does anyone have a pic of where the backup lever goes? I know on an older foreman it was on the left side. I scoured over the thing and could not find the shaft! I looked on youtube and google and couldn't find anything about it either.

the button is on the left handle bars, push red button down, pull brake lever, it also pulls lever under there, the cable goes to the rear of the engine, which operates another lever at the back, bottom side of the engine, this is made this way on most all Hondas.

LOL I know how the reverse works on a Honda. I'm asking about the backup lever in the toolbox when your electric shift craps out.

I feel like it's on the front of the motor for some odd reason but if you have a service manual it might be in there

the tool fits on the hex shaft, left side where your foot is.

lol, yeah, I thought you meant the reverse operation ?..sorry, yes, that tool fits on the hex shaft, that's hidden behind the left side panel. if you look down on the left side, behind where your foot heal would be ?, you will see this hex shaft poking out the left bottom side of your motor :).

The ES Foremans for sure, I don't know about the DCT's. The Foreman and Rancher engines are very similar.
