I run in high 80% and low 20%. The only time I use low is to rock climb. I prefer high 10 mpg +

Re: Low Gear

Use always at speeds below 10, seems to run best at 7-8 going up inclines.


Always, always use when loading on trailer, driving over obstacles like curbs, or when starting out in any sort of a bind.

I use low to put myself in a better position to re-start in high for running at higher speeds, like having to come up a borrow ditch or cross lanes of a road on a curve, etc..

I never have any problem doing any of that stuff in high, just seemed "overkill" to use low for something that it does effortlessly in high....

Cool video! Nothing that steep around here, more mud and soft loose dirt.

Re: Low Gear

Like any other piece of equipment....something we have to learn how to operate to meet our needs. Always good to hear from others so that we can evaluate their experience to our needs.

Never hurts to learn....

Re: Low Gear

Use low gear when driving slow, up hill, water/mud, heavy load, loading in trailer etc which account for fewer than 10% of my rides.

Donít forget to shift gear with the RZR stop. You will save your drive belt and transmission when using the low gear properly.
