Question about Vehicle Parts & Accessories
Usually this is a problem with the shift linkage not being correctly adusted to allow the components to move where they should when they should.
I would start by disconnecting the linkage and trying to get it to shift (you'll probably need to use an adjustable wrench on the shaft, if that would work, to apply enought force but be careful so you don't apply enough force to damage anything). If you can't get it to shift that way you'll probably need to disassemble the chaincase. To get reverse to engage the shift fork needs to be able to slide the sliding gear on the coupling shaft.
One way to work on the chaincase without draining the lube out is to tip the sled on its left side so the oil stays in the case. You will have to remove the battery (if equiped) and make sure that the fuel and oil tank levels are low enough that they don't leak when the sled is tipped.
Another thought: Will it shift with the engine shut off? If so, there is likely a clutch problem that is applying load to the gears which wouldn't allow it to shift when the engine is running. This needs to get fixed as it will cause accelerated drive belt wear and probably doesn't allow the engine to run at the correct RPMs.
