Yep, another problem, another topic

When I stop the quad to shift into neutral before shutting it off, it's kind of a pain to shift into neutral, shift lever gets hard and it takes me a while and a steady foot to get it into neutral, but after I shut the quad off, it shifts into neutral without a problem, what could be causing this hardness of the shift lever when the motors running?

lol, yeah, just keep riding... forever!

no, but i think that when the gears are spinning, then it is easier to hit 2nd and when it is stopped then the gears dont mesh perfectly. its normal to an extent i think.

This isn't normal though, it didn't do this before

If I had to guess the worst, I'd say bent forks, guess the least worse, bad clutch

I was riding earlier, started off in 1st, shifted into second, ran in second gear for about 3 seconds when it popped out of gear and back into neutral

I would have to say that your clutch is not quite fully disengaging. Got the same problem with my banshee you cant get neutral when its running.

As for the popping out of gear more than likely worn gears or bent forks.

I do tend to shift softly when I'm just kind of cruising

its most likely a clutch adjustment issue.

next time you try it....give the throttle a blip as you are applying pressure to the gear lever...this will tell you if its an adjustment issue. you may need less freeplay in the clutch.

When you had your cases apart, how did the transmission look? When it was going back together, are you 100% sure it was correctly assembled?

Just thinking out loud.

How did the gears look? Did you check to see if the edges of the dogs were starting to wear and round off. I had this happen to my 310r and I ended up getting the gears machined.
