Honda Fourtrax 400 - gear issue

762 Views 8 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  wheelsquad
Dear brains trust,
I have a Honda Fourtrax 400cc 2005 model,
I bought it off a guy, and it doesn't select reverse, nor drive in lower gears, seems it's stuck in top gear so easily stalls. He said it was "an easy fix"..

Just looking for advice, I'm pretty handy at fixing most things, so knowing what could be wrong is what I'm chasing info on, just don't know alot about quads.

Keen to get it going properly to use on the farm, so any info in appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Sorry I didn't see this sooner.

So does it just not indicate on the dispay that you are in R or D when you move the physical shifter? Or is the problem that it does go into D but is stuck in a high gear ratio?

Does it act as it should when running in ESP mode?
It's been awhile, but yeah, I think esp flashes, but no reverse and I think goes to D
I'm not off-hand what would make it do that. Do you have a copy of the service manual? There is a thread for them on this forum. Then try and retrieve error codes.
