Do you have a warrenty? Or any mechanical skills. I would get to the tranny and inspect it. Do you use the clutch while shifting? where were you riding were you running it hard? Was it hot? how u get it home? Since it has cooled down have you tried to move the shifter.
What gear is it locked in?

Can you turn the tires without the clutch in

can u turn them with the clutch in?

Probably broke the shift fork for 3rd gear usually if you ride the wheeler hard and don't use the clutch the shift fork breaks around 3rd gear it happens to 03 predators when you dont use the clutch at all for about 20-30 hours. Sometimes it never happens.

Did you buy it new? Or used? Usually buying used these days for sport quads means they are BEAT. I bought mine used and lucked out it was babied now i just beat the piss out of it and I plan to run it to the ground the part it out. Hell I rolled it atleast 15 times down a HUGE side of a sand mound today that was near straight up and it just bent the plastic. My friend rolled his yfz once and his plastic is all scratched bars are bent and steering stem is all bent out of shape. Predators might be heavy but they are tanks they will take anything and everything you can throw at them.

Also try to start it with the rear wheels off the ground and drag the clutch until you can get the rear wheels moving them maybe you can get it out of 3rd gear by running the motor and shifting it. Then you will be able to tell if your tranny is LOCKED UP or just stuck in a gear.

Either the brake lever is stuck, or the brakes are seized or something in the tranny is jammed or seized up. Take it to your nearest Polaris dealer.

Ya sounds like an immature teenager thats PMSing (maybe he aint such a guy).

Sounds like hes pissed that the YFZ aren't as strong as the Preds. They are light but don't have any strength because they wanted it to be light.

Ya if you don't know what your doing and dont have any friends that know what their doing take it to your dealer if they are nice they will look at it for cheap or free.
