Hello! This is my first post on the forum. I have had a 1998 450es for about 15 years and it has been very reliable until this winter. We had a cold snap here in Alberta and after it ended I tried to start the quad and found it stuck in gear. The screen shows a line in the middle of the box where the gear number should be. I have a manual shift shaft on and was able to shift a few times but then it locked up completely. I can't shift it manually at all. Today I replaced the angle shifter but that didn't help. I haven't had to tear the motor apart yet and would like to know where to start. I have worked on motorcycle engines before.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Probably the bolt backing out of the shift drum linkage, or the shift plate cracking.

Similar to this problem I had with a 500
