Es shifting problem

Hi there. I'm new to the forum and new to atv's in general. I just had a couple questions for anyone with experience. I have a 2013 foreman 500 with Es. It stopped shifting entirely and was stuck in first gear. Fresh oil, battery seems good. We took it to a mechanic and he cleaned the shift motor. Now it shifts but flashes a bar between gears and sometimes I have to try 3 times before it will up or downshift between 2, 3,4 or 5 gear. The gear no longer flashes, just a bar. Could it be the angle sensor or? I'd appreciate any feedback.

Angle sensors are cheap so that's a good place to start. Doesn't hurt to have an extra anyway.

Was the shift motor operating correctly when the guy took it apart? No broken shift gears or anything? You said he cleaned it, I assume you mean he just cleaned the old grease out of the reduction gears...

ES problems are a nightmare, good luck.
