It sounds like your shift pin! A relocator will fix it.
i have the same problem but mine doesnt go into neutral or anything it just doesnt shift. the shifter will go up a little bit but then just stops and wont allow it to go in to 3rd gear. and when it finally goes into there gear doesnt make any noises at all DOESNT sound like anything is grinding. just a pain to get in to gear.question about this 3rd gear problem. its supposed to be 08 to 09 right? mine is an 07, and when i go full throttle like when im doing holeshots sometimes it is a BEOTCH to get into 3rd gear and its like it goes into nuetral or something. if im cruising it shifts easy, but wide open its like it just dont wanna go. but shifting from 3rd to 4th is easy even when im wide open. is this the 3rd gear problem or do i just suck at shifting?
My ltr450 happened the same thing what did you do to fix the problem I bought a complete transmission of ebay but is different, but when I check a oem parts diagram looks just like the one I bought of ebay.Please send me your email to send you pics of the one I bought so you can see the difference.Look on my 3th gear.
