Honda Recon ES Problem? Help please

6 posts in this topic

I have a Honda Recon ES and when I started it today it ran and warmed up but then when I put it in first gear it died. Know when I tried to put it into nuetral the 1st gear light just blinked. It won't change into nuetral the light just blinks in first gear. Hopefully it's just something stupid and easy to fix for my cousins machine. THanks in advance

Possibly a bad angle sensor. I believe they had a recall or service bulletin on these a while back.

With the key on, try gently rocking it (a little push on the handlebars) and shifting it into N. Mine has occasionally done that and a bit of movement has allowed shifting out of gear.

I had same problem with my rancher. It was the shift position sensor and it is easy to replace yourself.
