Is the reverse light on when the gear selector is in neutral and forward? Does the neutral light come on at all? When you push the starter does it make any noise (one click/multiple clicks)? And I'm assuming it wont start with the pull start either.
If that's the case, it sounds like you may have a bad switch in the gear selector, or possibly faulty wiring somewhere. Check your wiring first and make sure the connections are clean and nothing is cracked or corroded. If they look fine, you may have a bad switch in the gear selector which is only sending a reverse signal. Even if the quad is in neutral and the switch is reading reverse it will not allow it to start.
If it is the switch, you could possibly override it. I know there is a way, I just do not know the process, but Im sure someone else could help you on here. I know an oem switch from a dealer is around the $200 range for a tiny little thing. It does not show a switch on the gear selector diagram as on a diagram for a 1998 model, but I do believe they still have one on the 1999-2001 models.
