crying Need HELP Transmission shift problems

So I go out ridding today and Could not get it into 3rd with my foot for 15 mins. I finally used my hand and with clutch pulled in I used other hand to pull up several times on shifter and got it into 3rd. I kept playing with it and got it to shift better somewhat

I can rarely shift it into 3rd with my foot have to pull up 1-3 times on it to get it to shift.

I hear NO strange noises from transmission. I stopped messing with it and put it away.

I have checked all my fluids just to make sure all Im guessing NO way will honda cover this even though I have extended warranty and I have owned the quad 4 months

Down Shifting is easy works every time first time, Up shifting is the problem
could this be something todo with the shift fork?

One thing I have learned about transmission problems, the only way to know for sure what is wrong, is split the cases and inspect everything. Probably not what you wanted to hear, but it is the only way to really know what is wrong.

Check everything you can first. (Clutch, clutch adjustment, oil, etc.) If everything checks out, time to split the cases.

so just take it back to dealer since I am NOT a mechanic? I can do simple stuff but that sounds way more than what I feel comfortable doing

Man the alignment sounds like a tweaked a-arm and the shifting could be shift forks or adjustment. You can take it to honda but you will be overcharged. I would just take my time and use your resources on here. Talk to av8er he just adjusted his. If its the shift forks take it in

Fix the front end problem and take it in and play dumb. It's worth a try.

When you tried to get the locking nuts on your tie rod loose did you try to loosen them the same way? The outer tie rod ends have right hand threads and the inners have left hand threads. Good luck with everything
