TRX350 Reverse Issue

830 Views 1 Reply 2 Participants Last post by  retro
Hello All,

Today I drove 2 1\2 hours to pick up my newest toy, a 2000 Honda Rancher TRX350TM. I practically stole it for $500 from the previous owner due to him needing it gone. I have owned plenty of four wheelers in my life living on a 90 acre farm that my parents own. However, this is the first Honda I have ever owned. After getting it home and running it around the field with my trusty sidekick (My 4 year old) It runs excellent and has very few issues that need worked out. One of which is that I cannot get it into reverse. I put it into neutral, pressed both breaks as hard as I could, and tried my best to get it to engage with no luck. It shifts perfectly through every other gear however. Is this a common issue with these machines? Any input is greatly appreciated as I am very lost on what the problem is as it is likely operator error.

Push down on the reverse selector button on the handlebar brake lever and hold it down, squeeze the brake lever then shift into reverse. If that won't work then the reverse selector cable either needs adjusted, is seized up, or is broken.

You can find a copy of the service manual for your bike HERE.
