Greetings folks, long time lurker / learner here. This place rocks, its an invaluable source of TRX repair info.
So maybe this will be a simple question for someone. First quick background: I'm chasing a no-spark issue that after replacing CDI, Coil etc ... lead me to examine the stator and pickup coil. While they tested within limits via the wiring, I still cracked open the side case to remove the stator.
Here's where the question comes in, while I had the cover off and testing the stator, my 18 year old thought it would be interesting to see how the shifter assembly works so he stuck the shifter petal back on and yanked up on it. He said he felt / heard a "clunk" inside
Soooo when I came back and heard this (after biting my tongue), I rocked the atv and it freely wheels around. I tried to shift it down, shift it up... nada. It seems fairly stiff. I've never been inside an atv transmission, nor the TRX300 specifically. Is it possible he could have tweaked something shifting it with the case off? I don't see anything on the exposed linkage that is preventing it from potentially shifting. I would expect it to drop into gear easily...but its obviously not doing that.
The neutral light isn't on... but I don't know if its shifted out of neutral or if those lights wont come on with the stator / pickup coil removed. Is there something on the right side of the bike that the shifter shaft connects to that could have gotten out of wack?
I really dont want to reassemble the stator side if there is something inside that is now broken or out of index or something weird.
