Problem with shifting

So forgive me if this has been covered somewhere but I can't find it. I am new to the forum and to these quads. I have had this quad for a week with absolutely no problems. It ran and rode great until today. After riding a few days ago I rode it into the bed of my truck. Today I stopped at the car wash and sprayed the mud off. When I got it out of the truck it would not shift into first gear. It shifts into all other gears and runs and rides fine other than no first gear. It feels like neutral is just the bottom gear. because I can't get to first I obviously can't get to reverse either. Does any body have any idea what this could be? It has shown no signs or symptoms up to this point of anything being wrong. Did some sensor get wet? Is washing it just a coincidence? Thanks for any help.

First, I'll say that I don't know much about transmissions, but have you tried shifting into first only when it's off, or running but not moving? I would try going into second and then start moving and then see if you can get it into first.

Thanks for the reply. And yes I have tried shifting with it off and on both and I have tried shifting to first gear while it's rolling. No luck any way I try it. It runs through all the gears great I just can't get to first.

Well the forum expert I'd say is Baxter, he's had his gear box apart more times than I can count! You can search some of his threads or maybe pm him for help. My guess you have a forking problem. At least I think that's the correct mechanical term for shift fork issues.

I'm not an expert by any means, but you might try adjusting your clutch to be sure your clutch gets fully engaged. I'm taking a hint from an old car I used to have Triumph TR4... same kind of problem replaced my clutch and no more problem.

thehit4hire,
It is an odd thing about that transmission. To put the machine in Neutral you first put it into first gear (down) then raise the lever up slightly to find neutral (Neutral light on). To put it into reverse put the shift lever all the way down and at the same time pull the reverse paddle, under the trailing edge of the right front fender up (Reverse light on). Some time you may have to rock the machine slightly when putting the machine into reverse. Use your user's manual to verify everything mentioned.

Sounds like the shifter mechanism is the problem.
Does it shift down gears ok and how mechanically minded are you, could you change a clutch basket ?

There maybe a way of checking whats wrong without lifting or removing the engine.
