I have the same quad that came to me with a failed Hondamatic. There was no way to shift gears using buttons & if the transmission is bad it acted like it was in high gear - the engine could barely turn the wheels (even when off the ground). Couldn't hurt to assemble it and find out but chances are you'll need to replace the trans.

Hi there! You will need to repair de hondamatic transmission. I have a question for you. Did you use this 500 before the transmission where out? I have one I bought it used but I'm aware it's not as powerful as my old Formen 450. Are this 500 lack of power or it's only mine?
