450 es not shifting in reverse

My uncle has a honda 450(not sure on year) ES. It shifts fine up and down, but when you try to shift into reverse the down button doesn't work.

Here's the link to the service manual. If the cable isn't out of adjustment, check the reverse shift switch on the left handlebar lever, like Toodeep said.
