You didnt state the make model and year but typically this is a broken spring in the shifting mechanism. I suggest pulling the clutch cover off and looking at the shifting mechanism. When a spring brakes, the shifter pawl can no longer grab the pins on the shifter drum.

I agree that my suggestion was of no value, but please keep in mind you failed to provide the make model and year of your ATV with the initial inquiry and I was not counting on your ATV being an electric shift, because the vast majority of ATV's are not electric shift. I got the information that it is an electric shift and you solved the problem one right after the other. Delivered to me at the same time. I am perfectly ok with you just letting any rating go and calling it a push. No pay, no negative rating. Justanswer will refund your deposit without a problem, I can promise you that. Deal?
