400ex won't shift into 5th

Alright, ive had my 400ex for about 4 months now and I still can't figure out why it wont shift into 5th. I can't seem to find a new sprocket that actually shifts the gears. Any help is appreciated or links to parts would be great. Thanks!!!

The sprocket has nothing to do with shifting - my first guess is you are somewhat unfamiliar with motorcycles and ATV's - my second guess is you did not read the owner's manual and my third guess is the quad is not new and actually has a transmission problem.

Are you shifting down from neutral to get first gear and then from first it is 4 up shifts to fifth gear. Are you missing one of these gears? Do you have 2 neutrals? Does the engine just rev in first or fifth position?

A detailed description of what you do and what the quad does would be most helpful.
