Honda TRX500FGA shifts but does not move

I can shift throught all gears and you can feel it lock into each gear, but it does not move. When I give it gas it acts like it is in neutral and only revs up... Help please??!!

Will it move in 4wd? If it will move in 4wd but not 2wd then you got a problem with either your rear driveshaft/U-joint or the rear diff/axle. If it won't move in 4wd or 2wd you prob got something broken in the tranny or just a centrifugal clutch that is completely shot. Will the bike try and move at all? Making any abnormal noises when you try and get it to move?

I'm gonna guess its something with the secondary gears or the output shaft, or some stripped splines somewhere. Thats the only thing I can think of if it will shift through the gears and just not move. Unless its just a completely and totally worn out centrifugal clutch, but I've never heard of one being so worn out that the bike wouldn't even try to move at all. At any rate I would say you're gonna have to go into it and do some inspecting.
