shifter troubles??2009 Prowler 700 xtx

Finding it hard to shift between gears after initial selection. Seems as though the shifter is jamming somehow. I actually have to shut the machine down to shift and re-start. What am I missing here?
Thanx

either idle is too high....or the linkage needs to be adjusted, we ALL had to do it AT LEAST once.

i have a 09...last time i had trouble with shifting(prowler was only 4 months old)..shifter was stuck in reverse, had to change the cable cause it had seized, used it pretty much every day, but it still seized ! might not be your problem, just throwing ideas around. i would try and adjust it first.

Shift Lever
CHECKING SHIFT LEVER LINKAGE
Set the parking brake and turn the ignition switch on;
then with the shift lever in the neutral position, look
for the (N) indication on the LCD. Shift into high
range and look for the (H) indication, low range for the
(L) indication, and reverse for the (R) indication. Shift
the transmission into neutral and turn the ignition
switch off.

ADJUSTING SHIFT LEVER LINKAGE
To adjust the shift lever linkage, use the following procedure.
1. Set the parking brake; then remove the seats and
center console.
2. Make sure the shift lever is in neutral; then loosen
the jam nut on the linkage.
3. Remove the E-clip on the transmission shift arm;
then remove the linkage from the shift arm.
Account for a washer and a bushing.
PR461A
4. Turn the linkage rod clockwise or counterclockwise
until the lower linkage hole aligns with the
shift arm pin.
5. Install the bushing and linkage and secure with the
washer and E-clip; then tighten the jam nut
securely. Check each gear shift position for proper
gear selection and make sure the proper icon illuminates
on the LCD.

Ive had trouble with mine as well does not seem to be an adjustment thing. When my tires are under any load (stopped in mud, breaks on on side of hill) it will not come out of the gear is in. Very frustrating when all you need to do is back up and you cant, and need 4 quads to winch you around.

Amen northern mud. That has happened to me in a mudhole. Went dead. Wouldn't start. And wouldn't for the life of me come out of gear! Took my winch, a rhino pulling on me, and a 700 polaris pulling and winching on me to get me out. My tires wouldn't roll at all. I don't understand why it won't come out of gear in that situation. Makes me so mad And by the way, i've had to adjust mine at least seven times in a year and a half. Don't understand that either.

Hey Moose, My 2010 1000 prowler is stuck in reverse, seems like you described above. I have not been able to look at anything. Do you have any ideas where I should start?? It is the leaver and the transmission that is stuck in reverse. Thank you in advance
