Its SUPER HARD to change gear
Hey all! I am having problems with my '03 Vinson 500. Earlier today I was fine when I changed gear ( 1,2,3,4,5). I was driving thru 7 inches of snow, so that shouldn't be a problem. I'm new when it come to ATV's so help if you can! We always have a good amount of oil in it, so that shouldn't be the problem. What happened is that out of no where, it was nearly impossible to shift. I couldn't do it with my foot. I have to bend over and jerk it up and down repetativly for it to go one gear up or down. Has this happened to any of you before? I can still run the atv, and the engine sounds great , so no prob there. The reason I am asking here is that it's a 4 hour drive to the nearest atv store that is willing to try to fix it. We have a neighbor who is experience with parts and installing them, but he's never heard of this happening before so I am asking here. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
