Unhappy Broken shift lever

My 400 XT Max has been shifting hard all winter while snow plowing even while doing the hump. The shifter lever finally broke today and I got it back inside the garage in reverse. How hard is it to replace the shift lever? Is there an after market lever that is a little harder? Thanks,
Bill

Shift Lever 400 max

I broke mine a couple of weeks ago.. got a replacement at Can Am dealer. Not hard to replace but watch out for the 2 o-rings.. they fall out easily and
can be hard to find.

After you get the lever replaced, Id highly recommend the one way bearing mod.

I found the bearings for as low as 20 bucks shipped and you should be able to get it tore down and put back together in under an hour with basic tools.

I know this thread is about 5 months old, but does the one way bearing mod have any benefit in easier shifting ?

Or are you just recommending the one way bearing mod because it will coast easier ?

I also broke my shifter, and have not fixed it yet,.. . going to give it a go this weekend .. any help would be appreciated. .

do you take off the seat, then the plastic, to get in there ?

The bearing mod makes it shift way easyer, Little to no humping required. A clean and greasing of the one way helps but does not compare to the aftermarket bearings. i got mine at battery worl for $13 each IIRC

Yup everything comes off real easy just watch the long side panels they can be tricky but just take your time. No tools required to take off the plastics you will need to take off.

OK I got the shifter out...

How much does the replacement cost at a dealership ?

I'm going to do a search and look and see how to do the bearing mod, ... unless anyone has a link with instructions and pictures ?

I also read that 75W 90 chain oil by Amsoil makes a difference in shifting ... anyone agree ?

I use 75 140. 75 90 is not the correct oil for the gear case.

On the 400 the trans is integral with the crankcase thus using your engine oil. The V-twins use a divorced trans and their own oil. The shift lever is easy to replace ,and if you have the capability I recommend rebuilding your broken lever using 3/8" cold rolled ( stronger& more rigid then the 1/4" stock). When replacing the lever check the alignment carefully. Place trans in neutral, shift lever in neutral notch and adjust carefully so each sits exactly in it's proper location. Next go to your one way , clean& grease it , as you do this turn the 2 bearings in the one-way by hand testing them to see how easy they turn. Most likely they will be hard to turn ( because of the seals) . That is what the other posts are talking about ( freewheeling at idle when the belt is riding on it ), the after market bearings spin easier. To illustrate: on a manual trans car it is much easier to put it in gear when the clutch is fully depressed then when it is partially depressed. I have done all this except the after market bearings and my 400 now shifts very well, that is why I recommend doing this step by step.
