1997 King Quad advice needed

I am looking at a 1997 KQ300 for sale. Current owner got it from an estate purchase and has no history of it. It looks good for a 1997. Racks, plastics and rims all all in very good condition and it only has 2100 miles. Starts right up and sounds good. Biggest issue I have with it is the shifting into neutral.
RPM's are right up there when running in neutral and I'm wondering if this could be making it take lots of tries to get it back into neutral. When shifting from neutral to any gear it puts a load on the motor so my thoughts are that this could be causing the issue. I'm also finding it very difficult to find owners or service manuals either free or for sale for these older machines.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Shifting into gear or neutral while the idle is high can cause the bike to lunge forward or have hard shifts. Try adjusting the idle to see if that helps. As for a service manual. Check out a site called Tradebit. They have various PDF style service manuals at a very reasonable price. Between $10 - $20. And welcome to the Forum.
