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.

I parked my Polaris 500 about a year ago just put new battery in started right up but doesn't go into foward or reverse


If it is stuck, try to rock it back and forth while attempting to shift. This has worked for me in the past. It sounds like oil wasn't replaced after going through mud / water before storing.

2009 polaris 850 sportsman, reverse will not work.


put some grease in the tranny, and while your at it check th back diff too, by just loosening the pumpkin bolt and sticking your finger in there to see if there is enough 75/90, if not just ADD TO THE PUMPKIN till it reaches the top of the bolt hole while the unit is sitting on its 4 wheels it should just be spilling out at the threads put bolt back in and hand tighten then snug but not too tight, tht should do it.

My polaris400 Sportsman will not go into reverse or shift to neutal


Had the same problem on my 500. It was the shift linkage. Two of the joint nuts had loosened up. So it wouldn't come all the way out of forward so it wouldn't shift into any other position.

Atv transmission


sounds like the connecting rod on the crankshaft.
i would inspect the primary clutch first before an engine teardown. Sometimes the engine shifts on the engine mounts and the clutch hits the cover, also check to make sure belt is not slapping around in cover.

remember on early models there was a safety pin that had to be held to switch to reverse,,,your 500 does this automatically so check for safety pin hookup. Could be brush or
