Just new to the form did a search but no luck. My daughter just bought a trx 350 es 2000, 1200 miles on it. It will not shift up if you let off the throttle completely, but will shift if you only let off to say half throttle is this normal or is there some issue with the ES?

One thing that helps with shifting is to use good, fresh, engine oil. The transmission and engine share the same oil, so if the oil hasn't been changed lately, I suggest changing it, and use a good synthetic oil that is intended for ATV's like Shell Rotella T6 or Honda oil. Whatever oil you use, make sure it has a JASO MA rating. Oils of that type are compatible with the wet clutch found in Honda ATV's.

Also, a good, strong battery is important in making shifts happen on an ES machine. I found that out on my 2000 Rancher. If you don't know how old that battery is, just buy a new one.
