So I bought the shift motor and new gears, but now my issue is that there is no power getting to the shift motor. Is there a way I can bypass this to get power to the shift motor?

Here is a link to some info on Es , there is a link I was looking for you , it is in that section of the link , it is a wiring harness that you install on your ES bike and it by passes and makes it shift

Ok I am new to this and just looking for some help.

I recently purchased a 2000 Honda rancher 350 TE and I am having trouble with the shifting of the fourwheeler. When I turn the key on, no codes flash or anything, and you can shift through all gears with fourwheeler off, both up and down. Now when I start the thing and start running through the gears, if I don't give it full throttle and just "putt" through the gears everything is fine, it will shift both up and down. but if I get into fourth gear and throttle wide open, it won't allow me to shift into fifth, or back down into third, I have to turn the fourwheeler off and turn it back on and everything goes back to normal, it is not an intermittent problem, it does this every time. I read on one forum where someone said the angle sensor being bad would cause this, mine wasn't coding bad, but I went ahead and changed it.

The speedometer does not work, and when the wire connectors are plugged together for the speedometer, my gear position doesn't read, but if I unplug the speedometer, the gear position will read correctly.

I know this is a long shot but I am very frustrated and figure it cant hurt but to try and ask others with loads more knowledge then I have on these things..

Thank you all for taking the time to read my thread and any help would be greatly appreciated.

Bryce did you ever get this sorted out? I'm have a similar problem. I'm thinking it could be a faulty meter unit but wanted to see if you had a remedy first.

So I am finally on vacation so I am trying to clean my Electronic shift gears on my 2007 rancher 420 es. It shifted OK before but it could be better so I followed the instructions and I cleaned the old grease out. Well after cleaning I applied the white lithium grease to the gears and reassembled them. After waiting for the gasket maker to set up, I took it for a test run. It was shifting amazing all the way up to 5th gear but when I went to down shift it wouldn't. So I pulled it apart again and looked at a diagram on how the gears go in and I removed a small amount of grease. I tried it again and it still wouldn't. I can hear it trying but it wont down shift. I took the gears out and I can shift the engine fine with the emergency shift leaver. So something is happening in those three gears in that assembly

Reassemble the gears and try shifting manually.
IF: The engine/transmission shifts normally with the manual shift level, the issue is with the electronic portion.
IF: The engine/transmission DOES NOT shift normally with the manual shift level, Check the gears for correct installation.
The one large gear that looks like a deformed fan has a dot/mark on it. Correct installation of this part is the dot/mark facing you as you put it on. It is possible to put this part on 1 tooth off as it has 70 teeth on the small end that goes on the shift shaft. That is all it would take to keep it from shifting normally.
