How do you work the reverse shifter and how fast will it go in reverse ? I'm asking because I have had to spin fast in reverse sometimes to get myself our of the mud before I'm sure a lot of you have been there and done this

John I think the left side steering column has a paddle for reverse once it's in neutral. Pleas correct me if I'm wrong

I was told you put it in neutral, pull the lever on steering wheel, then push the gearshifter foward. Is that what y'all understand? Maybe tennessee will pipe up. He drove it.

I wonder what the limit is I know on some sxs they have a override switch. Didn't see one in the pictures or info unless you get 10,500k rpm in reverse ��

Actually, it is probably like the ATVs. You shift into first, pull the steering wheel lever, then push the shifter forward again. The lever lockout prevents accidental engagement of reverse. The shift pattern from the tranny video supports this. To exit, you'd just pull the shifter rearward.

I hope you get it! This machine has been put through the paces in testing so I think it'll hold up. I'm wondering how fast you can get from reverse to first and back again. A lot of times we have to turn around on a tight trail and there is not a hill to spin around on. I wonder if there is video of the process? A couple more weeks and I'll see for myself

My 660 Raptor has a similar setup for reverse. When you're in 1st, just turn the reverse knob and shift down. Then to get out of reverse, simply shift up once. You can go from reverse to 1st very quickly

The YXZ gear shifter will not go forward into rev. until you pull up on the grey lever, just played with it today. You are going to love the steering wheel feel and I can't say enough about the cockpit.
The demo is in RideNow Goodyear today and Peoria store Sat/Sun.

I think I will get one by mid summer even if I half to make a few payments By then there should be a lot of after market accessory's out and some feed back on how it preforms in my riding conditions which is tight ruff trails , steep ruff hills , water crossings , muddy and rutted trails , rocks , as you can see I am not a dune rider at all , I think the dunes are awesome just not for me , the only sxs I ever drove was a 660 rhino , only road it 1/2 hour and couldn't stand having to push the peddle all the way to the floor to get it to move , so I kept my 660 grizzly , at least when I gave it the gas it took off without having to be at 5000 rpms , I know you have a lot of places like I ride where you live , I raced GNCC there in 1996 lol yea I am old now , but still like to go like hell trough the woods
