    miss counted gears, or you have the engine idling too high. Turn the idle down some and it should be fine. ( same thing happened with my foreman)

    Ok, figured mine out..
     
    Reduction gears behind ES motor, 1 tooth was broken
     
    Bolt on the 'shift drum' (I THINK) was not letting it shift past4th gear (down gearing)

    Assuming that you did not miscount the gears (did anybody ask you that yet?) in order for one individual gear to fail while six others (R, N, 1-4) to continue to function properly, there is only ONE place where the power flow separates to have any different result in any gear.  That is inside the transmission.  You can safely rule out anything to do with the clutches, driveshafts, or the engine mechanical condition because anything outside the transmission affects ALL the gears.  The transmission (inside the engine case) is wheere the failure is.  You can take a look on your way in, under the clutch cover, under the clutches, investigate the shifting mechanism, there is a remote (very remote) possibility I suppose that something could mechanically stop the shift drum half way through the last shift, but that would be a HUGE stretch to "expect" to find a problem there.  Stripped gear teeth, stripped splines, stuck splines, worn shifter drum, worn sliding clutch, etc...  Something in there.  I'm going to go out on a limb and say it's probably not that big or expensive of a failure, the only thing that makes it a big deal is the fact that the whole engine has to come apart in order to get to it.

    I have seen this before the gear wasnt stripped the enguagement teeth on the side of the gear broke off.
    I think we spent about $130 in parts and 7 hours of labor

    I had the exact thing happen to mine. Was ridin it, shifted into 5th, nothin. I rode it like that for about a year before I gave in and took it to the local shop. Broke the engagement teeth off the 3rd gear, so it couldnt grab and spin 5th. $700 at local shop.
