Manual shift
thank you !. now we can get down to the nitty gritty. you say its in neutral going by your dash ?, but you say it's in 5th gear ?, this tells me right off the bat, your shift drum has snapped the very end off of it at the back where the gear position switch is located. the early trx350fm ranchers ( and es models as well ) all came from the factory with a defective shift drum !. the very end was not made large enough to handle the torque, sooo..they snap off. this means the shift drum ( changing gears ) will rotate, but the gear position switch stays put..sorta ?, it no longer turns when the shift drum turns when shifting gears. the fix : you have to pull the motor, split the motor, and remove the shift drum, and replace it with a revised upgraded shift drum from honda. if you were lucky enough for this to take place way back when honda first sold these early ranchers ?, you could have had this fixed by honda under their recall !. but, those days and years are gone, and i'm sure they wont fix it for free now, but you can call any honda dealership, and ask them about it !!.
