I use to be part of a different Raptor forum, but it's been a bit since I was looking for advice for it and I can't even remember what it was called, so here I am.

I have my 01 that I bought new and have done countless mods to, one of which was the transmission update to the 02+ gear set. I have a lot of hours on this and have never had first gear :frown When I say I don't have it, it engages, will move under low power, but will slip in and out at the slightest throttle. I mainly rode it on the dunes, so not having first wasn't such a big deal. Now my kids are riding and I decided to get it out and going again.

Is this a common thing when you upgrade an 01 case to a new trans gear set? All the rest work flawlessly, just first. What could be causing it? I have wondered this for years as I rode, maybe the shift drums are different and it's not engaging completely?

Slipping out of gear is usually caused by worn dogs and windows in the gears or maybe a bent shift fork and not going into gear all the way. When you did the update were the parts new or used?

Thank you for the welcome.

If I remember correctly, and this has been 12 years ago, the 02 gear set was used, but like new. The dogs and windows were square. The shift forks and shift drum were suppose to be all the same. It did it from the first time I started it and I never tore it back apart to see what the cause was because I couldn't find a head and cylinder gasket for my big bore kit; I probably could now if I went looking.
