On my Rubicon I can only go 9mph, is there a rev limiter or something of that sort on it? If so can I disable it, kinda like the Overideswitch that Polaris ect.. have?

Thanx

Yes there is a way. I'm still working on a way to bypass it, when I do, you will be the first to know.
Try this, go in "D1 or D2" up a slope, stop and when it starts to roll back down, shift it in "R" with a little shot of trottle and you will have the tranny shift 5 gears in reverse. I guess it fools the computer.

dont you have a owners manual.
d1 is performance mode.
d2 is for when you want to take easy and not spinn the tires.
it shifts at a lower rpm in d2.
also that little trick about going into reverse you must have more money then brains to do stuff like that.
because a new tranny cost around 1500 dollers and then you have to pay someone to fix it.
the manual says it must be at a compleat stop befor shifting into any gear.
you are taking a chance of bending a shift rod or even worse braking the tranny.
why do you need to go faster then 9 mph in reverse anyways.

Nah, I never read my manual. Soon as I got the quad it was a snow storm, and I use that quad only for plowing.

you can do something simular with most any 2 stroke engine. we had a old dirt bike that we would push (bump) start, pushing backwards. this caused the flywheel to spin the wrong direction, (counter-clockwsie instead of it's normal clockwise rotation). this would cause the engine to run in the wrong rotation direction, thus 5 gears, all in reverse.

this will not work a on a 4stroke engine, but maybe your some how getting the flywheel/pump (what ever in the tranny that makes it go) to spin the wrong way.

My four wheel drive truck has the same problem as my Rubicon and the truck wont go 60 mph in reverse, just like my Rubicon wont go 50 mph in reverse.

Let me know if you fix yours.

I dont think there is a limiter in reverse as i can scream the engine in Reverse as its simply geared low.
as for this
"also that little trick about going into reverse you must have more money then brains to do stuff like that.

Yeah, not a good idea- it would trash the sub transmission

The only way you can damage the tranny is if you shift hard(grind it), by giving it a little
bit of throttle, you make a smouth shift.
I know the owner's manuel says that you must be in a complete stop so you don't "grind it".
Don't forget, this is a hydro static transmission.
