I've got issues with my rancher not shifting into reverse. First, it has a brand new battery....Shifts fine up and down but absolutely will not go into reverse. Also blows a fuse when front brake is applied... Does anyone out there have any ideas???? I'm not really close to a honda dealer so I hope to avoid a trip...
That happened to my friend. After awhile of no reverse he decided to go tapping around on the 4 wheeler with a hammer and it fixed it so i am not sure what the problem is. Haha i probably wouldn't recommend doing that. O but he didn't have the front brake problem.
If the bike is an ESP model (electric shift) check the reverse switch on the lower rear of the engine to make sure it is pluged in ..
I would like to thank all of you who take the time to read our problems and answer the questions you know. I have never posted to the site nor visited it until today. I have a 2001 Rancher that suddenly would not shift into reverse. I read many, many posts and happened upon this which was perfect. The pictures helped greatly. Once I knew where to look, it was easy to see that the reverse switch on the engine was unplugged. I plugged it in and everything works perfect again.
