I HAVE A 04 700 SPORTSMAN, GOT ON IT THIS PAST WEEKEND AND CAN'T GET IT IN HIGH RANGE UNLESS I TAKE THE LINKAGE OFF. IT ALSO SEEMS TO HAVE A LOT OF SLACK IN THE SHIFTER. I WAS GOING TO TAKE THE BLACK HOUSING OFF BUT AFTER I REMOVED THE BOLTS IT DIDN'T SEEM LIKE IT WANTED TO COME OFF AND DIDNT WANT TO DAMAGE IT.
Ok, I looked it up and there is a spring that goes from the brake pedal up to a lockout pin just below and to the right of gear indicater switch. If when you step on the brake and the spring doesnt pull that pin out far enuff then you wont be able to go into hi range or park. I am assuming that it wont go into park either.

I have a 04 700 as well and it hasn't happend to mine but I have read about belts can get a ridge in it from being in high or low range a lot and then have problems such as the one you are having,not being able to shift correctly.Good luck. Mudrooster
dirtbo, your issue could be rectified by looking in the " black box", about 6 screws to remove after you disconnect the linkage, this is a box with a few gears, and greese, take a look at a parts diagram by going to a polaris parts order site, i went to my dealer's web site and eyeballed the diagram, these gears are marked to aide in placing them back correctly, after you wipe the black greese off them, putting the box back togather can be alittle difficult but i did it, after trial and error, i can walk you through it if need be, last NOV. a freind ground up one of my gears, and my ride would not go out of high, $12, and putting the box back togather a few times, i was back in to power heaven.
