    I was riding my quad and I was going through alot of mud so I put it into low gear and it popped out. When it popped out of gear i let the enging rev down then tried to put it back but it just grinded. Now it will drive fine in reverse and go into neutral and high range. When i get to going fast in high range it will pop out of gear too and i dont know why. When I first bought this quad i went out to ride it and it had a similar problem where it wouldnt go into any gear and the shifter wouldnt even move. The mechanics charged me 1300$ to fix it and now its doing the same thing. I cant really afford the first visit there and for sure cant afford to go back. Please help me!!

    The fix was about 4 months ago and it worked fine. I tried to call them to see but they aren't open or answering phones because of corona virus. I hope they will waranty it when they open. Thanks for the help.

    Almost sounds like it's not going into gear all the way.or the gears are already damaged from not engaging all the way
