thanks guys, the idle is pretty low right now, does it go away or reduce when the machine is at proper temp?

How many others have had someone get on it, when it's in nuetral? They think it's in drive, and gas it. Then jam it into gear before the revs come back down. [img]i/expressions/face-icon-small-mad.gif[/img] Thought the wife took out a few teeth before I finally got that driven into her head.

Don't pussyfoot around when you put it in gear either. Go ahead and slam it in there as long as it's at idle. Shoving it into gear slowly only prolongs the damage you're doing to it. These gears do not have synchronizers like car transmissions. They are pretty much straight cut gears and will make kind of a crunching noise when shifted. We'll make a Polaris rider out of you yet brownweiser.

yes what fireslayer said use a swift and firm shift method when going high to reverse ..sometimes mine gets stuck in low if it happens dont panic or force the issue i just try to put it back in low and back out after several attempts it comes out done it since new never seems to hurt anything
