The detent ball may have been stuck and is now broken free. Or the shifter itself where it goes thru the case, I've seen them frozen there.

LOL! I have a LT1000 too and mine was nearly impossible to shift when I got it. Soaked the shifting shaft in PB blaster and ATF and what do ya know, It shifts perfectly.
