good work Honda Mechanic
yea he hit the nail on the head on that one, what we did was set my foreman on the rear rack and pulled the skid plate off and got to it right their.
Hey, thank you very much Honda Mechanic.
WHAT DOES THE ANGLE SENSOR DO ?? I JUST BOUGHT MY FOREMAN 500. SO FAR IS STOCK BUT JUST RECIEVED LIFT KIT AND BRACKETS KIT.
The angle sensor is mounted on the sub-gearshift spindle. It converts the direction of rotation, rotational angle and rotating speed of the sub-gearshift spindle into a voltage & speed signal. This signal is used by the ECM to control the shift control motor function..
You nailed that question Honda Mechanic
angle sensor

Can this sensor be cleaned in any way, or do we have to replace it? Mine has been acting up lately.
Is this a big problem with es, should I get two sensors while I'm at it?
Just installed and test rode the foreman, shifts like new again. Thanks for the help.
Again I ask, should I get another sensor to keep on hand, or wait till it quits?
What sensor did you install .. The TRX450FE calls for 38800-HN0-A11
But we try to use 38800-HP0-A11 which is the new angle sensor for the TRX500FE whenever we can ..

In fact the TRX350 sensor #38800-HM8-A50 superseads to the new TRX500 sensor ..

I wouldn't get a spare but if it goes again I'd put a 500 sensor on it ..
The one they gave me, (for $57) is, 38800-HN5-A11.

Works fine now.
Thanks, it shifts good right now, but I only rode for about 12 miles.
# 38800-HN5-A11 is listed under "very fast moving parts" so it must be the new replacement sensor .. The different number could just be a Canadian uses 1 number US uses another number ..

I don't think you should have any trouble with your shifting now..

Thanks for looking for me. It's on there now and works, so I'm leaving it alone, works fine now. I still can't see how a small part like that would screw up the shifting. I understand how it works, just why would Honda use something that undependable.
Anyone have any other ways to access the angle sensor, besides from the bottom? Cant quite lift it up on the rear rack by myself. Looks like a lot to remove from either side.
