05 foreman electric shift acting up.

My 2005 foreman es will not shift gears, and it will flash whatever gear position it is stuck in 3 times, like if it was in neutral, it wil flash N--N--N..... if anybody can give me some help i would really appreciate it. I have been told to check the angle sensor but i have no idea what that is, or where its at. Thanks.

angle sensor is junk
if u take the skid plate off. n look on the front of the motor next to the front drive shaft. u will see it. its on the left side when u r lookin at the drive shaft. takes like a 7mm allen wrench to take the plate off of it that covers it them just unplug the wires.

Check your battery the ES system needs a near perfect battery to work right the quad will maintain it but once the battery ages the quad wont charge the battery enough anymore to let the system work right it needs just over 13 volts or something weird like that. I ripped my entire 05 apart and put it back together and it still didnt work right put in a new battery and its been fine since.

my 07 is doing the same thing, and harmonsbrute and hawkinscalvin are correct. the easiest way to get to it is to stand the bike on the rear rack, remove the skid plate, then there is a wire that goes to the sensor under the shield, remove the bolts and the sensor comes out, just be sure to look at which angle it is so that it goes back on smoothly. i had to do this recently and worked fine for two rides, then started up again and it was the battery, only messed up when i hit the brakes. last time i checked, the sensor was around $60 from honda, and battery from honda was like $100.

Best thing to do is to just maintain that sensor by removing and cleaning every couple rides, also cleaning out the plug and replacing the grease.
