Hey all, I’ve lost first gear but all my other gears are fine. Previous owner used it for plowing and obviously banging first took it out. In order to repair the transmission do I really have to open both sides and remove the top end? Or can I just remove the side with the trans?

First gear was a factory defect on the Foreman 500 in these years
There is an upgraded kit that has improved gear and clutch dog, for around 55-75.00 or so
Honda part # 06234-HP0-306
You cant access transmission without splitting cases and you cant split cases with out removing top end
Good thing is, once you split the cases, first gear is right there on top and its a 30 second swap out
You should come join us over at atvhonda.com MUCH better site and faster answers for all your Honda ATV needs/questions
Most of the resident experts have left these mismanaged generic forums and went over there
either way, hope you get it fixed and maybe see you over there
