Here is a link to a parts diagram for reference: http://www.ronayers.com/oemparts/a/hon/5053dd96f870021c54bdcc93/rear-crankcase-cover

The lever is #7 located at the bottom rear of the engine. Check to ensure that the lever is in place, the bolt is tight, there are no sticks or mud preventing the lever from moving and that the lever moves when the reverse button on the left handlebar is depressed and the brake lever is pulled in. If everything looks good then try removing some of the slack from the cable using the cable adjuster below the hand brake lever on the left handlebar.
