Is the shifter hitting something? Perhaps its not fully into the detent for reverse.

No matter what shifter you have, it shouldn't be an issue unless something is hitting it and causing it to go out of gear. For a short time I used a small vice grips as a shifter when my stock shifter cables were frozen/stuck.

If you can. swap springs back, and see if the problem continues. Or loosen up the shifter bolt.. Put it in reverse, remove the shifter from the motor, and ride it and see if the problem occurs. That way you are eliminating the possible causes.

With the shorty shifter I have. I've only had it pop out of gear once from hitting the shifter with my leg. But that was from hitting a jump incorrectly. the quad and myself flopped around my leg somehow hit the shifter and put it into neutral. Which was prob a good thing..

I can't see how a spring change alone could do this though..

I think I remember VFJ trying some stupid high stall spring. Where he was hitting the rev limiter just to move. And don't remember any mention of it jumping out of gear. I don't know if he tried reverse though..

But since the spring seems to be the only other difference here. It would be the logical thing to swap out.

R U sure U put the shifter back on the correct spline spot? If it were one tooth off....
the shorty wouldn't hit, but it might not be all the way in on the reverse detent.

It still could be one tooth off @ the spline...the mark on the shifter shaft can be tough to see, and the gap on the shifter arm is 4-6 splines wide...hard to get centered....with the harder spring the problem may have just manifested now...Just thinking out loud.

doesn't matter what spline it's on, as long as the shifter isn't hitting on anything. You did remove all the stock shifter bracketry and crap.

spring should also make no difference, I run a 4000 stall in mine and never had it jump out

so maybe it is the Camo shifter, damn thing does look heavy. Of course I run the Monkey Ultimate Billet Aluminum Alloy Competition Cut Race Shifter :p:lol::lol::lol: [email protected]:p and only a few selected members get these, I don't whore my stuff out :D

Monk...It's fugly. :p Maybe try to put a bigger shifter knob on that thing. Surprised you can even shift it with the one on your quad. :lol:


PSI... you could try and swap the spring. If that doesn't help, I'd remover the shifter cover. There will be a ball in there which rides under a spring. That spring could be broken. But before you do that, you say it shifts well... :hmm: Can you feel reverse/neutral/forward? Is it mushy or soft when you shift or can you feel the crispness of the detents?
