Polaris shifting problem

Hi
I bought a 05 Polaris Magnum about two years ago I think seller was the original owner anyways the other day I was riding it I stopped and shut it off got back on about a half hour later and it would not shift into low or high so I forcefully put it into high. It's never had this problem before it just started out of now where. Today I was riding it and now it will not come out of high gear and the shifter has a lot of forward and backward play. The shifter linkage has no adjustment on it. The idle is 1180 RPM. I just changed the transmission with Polaris oil but it didnt help none. Any body have any ideas why it's doing this?

WELCOME!

Are you depressing the rear brake when shifting? Sportsmans have this in these years and not depressing it makes it very hard to impossible to shift.

The linkage can bind check that too..

Its likely you bent something when forcing it, double check the linkage and try removing it to see if it shifts then...

Yes on this magnum you have to depress brake lever to shift into park and high. I wasn't getting any replies on this website or any other websites so I took it into a mechanic I'll update this post what the problem was in case anyone else is having similar problems.
