Default 2002 Rancher 350 ES won't go into reverse

I have a Rancher ES that won't shift down into reverse. It will shift up and down through the forward gears but won't shift down to reverse. It will shift manually onto reverse. Anyone had this problem or know how to fix it. Thanks.

Check the reverse switch wire to make sure it is plugged in .. It is at the rear bottom of the engine right beside the reverse lock-out lever ..

Here is a picture of it ..

The plugs were dirty. I went to move the bike and it wouldn't go into any gear using the buttons. I hosed off the electrical connections and it started working. Thanks alot Honda Mechanic your my HERO.

I have that same problem on my 05 Honda Foreman but after I run it or about 20 mins. it's fine. I think the cables are just frozen since it has een so cold out and my atv is Clean no mud!
