My first suggestion would be to drain the gearcase oil. on the bottom of the gearcase behind the engine there is a drain plug. remove the drain plug, and drain the fluid into a clean drain pan. look for metal, or a metalliac sheer on the top of the oil. you can see it easier in the sunlight on the top of the oil. if you see metal or chunks of gear come out then you know there is a problem in the transmission. most likely, you have a bent shift fork or damaged gears. a bent shift fork typically has a symptom of not shifting or being hard to shift, and the gear wont engage. you also might have a broken transmission gear or stripped splines on a transmission gear, shich would allow the transmission to shift, but not acually move the atv anywhere.

Fuel starvation (supply or wrong carb or tune) and/or insufficient or poor quality spark.

Make sure the air filter is clean and only test with it connected as it sometimes makes a lot of difference. It could be worth checking the exhaust for blockages.

06 polaris 330 magnum wont move in any gear , whats the problem? where do I start troubleshooting?


Make sure the spring on the brake pedal that operated the park interlock hasn't stretched or come off the interlock, If the interlock and spring are ok,the problem most likely is behind the gear selector cover on the transmission. Water,moisture can get into this area and corrode the shift gears up or possible you could have broken tooth on one of the small gears

Tranny works, shifter wont shift the gears. how to fix?


My 2005 Polaris ATP 500 requires I depress the right foot brake while shifting into reverse or down into low range. Perhaps some adjustment on the foot brake to make this work. Also check linkage to make sure it is not binding. Others say if the idle speed is too high, you may not be able to shift. Try shifting with the engine off to see if it goes into the gears, using the foot brake. If yes, try again while at low idle speed.
