Do you mean that the shift knob on the right fender will not turn?
Have you tried moving the lever that comes out of the engine case by hand?

Ok, but I am asking if the lever coming out of the engine itself will move by hand.
The cable may not be pulling it when the knob on the fender is turned.
The knob mount is also commonly broken, so the whole housing turns, and the cable is not moved.
If that is the case, you need a $10 repair mount for the knob.

So, did you check it yet?
Is the shaft from the case stuck/arm on shaft won't move? It's unlikely.
Or, is the reverse knob housing broken?
Or, is the cable damaged?
My money is on B.
Let us know.

The Raptor 350 is basically an old Warrior, so it does not have the plastic reverse knob on the fender and the cable to move the lever on the case like the 660 and 700. There is a T handle located on the right side just below the tank and a rod that activates the lever on the case.

I recently purchased a raptor 350 and the shift lever for a reverse does not want to move back while I pull clutch in don’t know if shifting lever is stuck or if I’m doing something wrong please help
The proper reverse procedure is to be in neutral with the clutch in and then lift up on the T handle and move it rearward until you feel it drop down into the detent which will activate reverse.

Yeah, I know they're a Warrior in a new frame, but forgot they used the same reverse.
It's been several years since I've seen one in person.
And yes, that T handle must be pulled up on to unlock and move.
The op is not giving enough details to know if it's a mechanical problem, or operator error...

R u pulling up on the reverse lever before you go back. U don’t have to be in neutral also.

On mine it goes into reverse fine and then it doesn’t want to go back into neutral so I found that pushing the reverse lever as far forward as I can and then clicking it down into first gear and then it should be easy to put into neutral from reverse.

Or by playing with the clutch back and forth a bit sometimes does help.
