i have a 03 foreman 450 es just got it a couple of days ago rode fine til we took it to the trails yesterday bout half way thru the ridin it startede not wanting to shift but i figured out that i could turn it off and then back on and it would shift fine then it got worse i cut it off and it wouldnt shift at all so we had to pull it with my raptor and then cause it was in gear it started but then it got stuck in reverse so we had to back it out of the trail from what i have read i think it might be the angle sensor but i don know where the sensor is is there a diagram or something showing where it is and its showing 3 N flashes i think that means that its the angle sensor any help woulb be great thanks

barry.

The angle sensor is located on the front/lower/center of the motor. It sits beside the shift motor and is covered with a small tin shield. It takes a 10mm socket to remove the shield and I think a 4mm (pretty sure on that size??) allen wrench on the sensor. When replacing it make sure you get the o-ring on the new one.

I've also had the same issue with my 03' 450. The angle sensor fixed the problem. its about $60 at the honda dealer.

Post #13 in this thread is how I like to check them, the numbers should be steady and not jump up and down on the meter, meaning the numbers should only increase or decrease.

i read on on of the forums somewhere that if u cant shift it manually either than it is a mechanial problem that it is probably the shift drum bolt that it has backed out or broke what is ur opinion on this and do u know exactly where the shift drum bolt is

That is correct, if it doesn't shift manually it could be the bolt, the shift plate or the shift arm. The front engine cover has to be removed to inspect them.

thanks for the help i found the problem somehow the shift control motor locked down and it was causing me not to be able to shift manually but i took the shift motor out and just put the cace that holds it back on the front case and i can now shift manuslly with no trouble at all do u know where i can find a shirt control motor for cheap it is a real pain having to reach down and shift with ur hand the cheapest motor i could find is $155 so any cheaper would be great thanks for the help
