Hi Peter and welcome :400:

Although everyone is welcome here this forum is actually intended more for the 2012 onwards Trophy model so our ability to help May be limited..

Someone may chip in with an answer but you might be better trying here which is dedicated more to the older Trophy model.

First Welcome to the Forum :400: Secondly sounds to me like you have a bent shift fork.  Have you tried to shift through the gears with the engine off?

 :002:hi to everyone in response ,yes i have tried to select with engine of and just abouts everything my 58 years of knowledge will allow but it looks inevitable the motor has to come out, why make such a simple mechanism so hard to replace ah well thats progress for you .cheers
