The gear lever should be under your left foot.
Pull in the clutch with your left hand.
Push the gear lever to the bottom. Tap it a few times to get it into the lowest gear.
Release the clutch lever and roll on the throttle.This is 1st gear.
Pull clutch and lift gear lever firmly. Should now be in 2nd.
Pull clutch and lift gear lever. Should now be in 3rd
same for 4th and 5th.
Neutral should be between 1st and 2nd. Put 3-wheeler in 1st and gently lift on the gear lever until it barely moves. You should be in neutral. If you release the clutch and it tries to move you accidentally put it in 2nd. Go back to 1st and try again. Be patient. You will get it with a few tries.
Good luck!I got a 125M Honda 3-wheeler on a trade and I'm not sure how to switch gears. I press on the peddle but ,?
Lift up on the ';pedal'; on the left to switch to a higher gear, down for lower. Have fun!
I had a 1983 Honda 3 wheeler 185 very similar to the one you have. These things are very tricky if you dont know what you are doing with the shifter. Every Motorcycle, atv that I have owned had the same pattern for the Shifter just as the answers you have already gotten state. The shifter is at your left foot. Most all bikes atv's etc the shift pattern is all the way down in gears is first. Up one click is neutral, up one more is second, and so on. Yours has no hand clutch so we will not worry about that. ON THE OTHER HAND::::On your particular atv it is ALL TOTALLY OPPOSITE AND BACKWARDS of what the other posters have informed you of. First gear is all the way up as many clicks at you can get the shifter to go. Then one click down is neutral, then one more down is second, and so on until you get into the highest gear (4th or 5th I cant remember). Try this and you should be in business. Unless you own or have owned one of these you wouldnt know that the shifter is totally oposite of everything you have ever ridden. If you still cant figure it out let me know...Trust me I done the exact same thing you were doing. You are going all the way down in gears which is starting you out in 4th or 5th gear. That is why it wont go or has any power...
