wont shift down or stuck in gear???

my foreman wont shift into nuetral, its stuck in 2nd gear, it will shift up but struggls downshifting and when you get down to second it wont go anymore. it acts like it wants to because the machine will jump alittle like always when you shift but it wont click any lower, any help is very appreciated, also when i was riding it seemed like it was in half nuetral and half whatever gear because it was revving high but the power and speed didnt seem right???

Is it a Rancher 400.. or a Foreman 450..I didn't think they made a Foreman 400. I heard of a Foreman 450 and a Foreman 500.. But not a Foreman 400

You will have to remove the clutch cover on your TRX400FW and check numbers 8 , 11 & 12 .. and the rest of the gearshift parts

Some bikes will start in gear if you pull the front brake and try to start. This may be a mod that only the newer bikes come with. I know that the 2003 650 Rincon will not start in gear unless in neutral..unless you pull the front brake lever.. then it will start..
