Re: Gear Grinding

My S did the same thing when new, took it back to the dealer and turned out the clutch was out of alignment. Fixed it quickly and easily. Dealer told me that it will grind if rpm's haven't fallen to idle, or if vehicle is moving or on a steep grade and placed into park. Other than that it should not grind. My dealer recognized the problem and fixed it, was easy to work with. Hope yours is the same...

Re: Gear Grinding

I have over 5000 miles on my 2013 xp900 Ranger and no matter how I shift it half the time when I go into reverse it just sits there and strips the gears. Now it even started doing it when going to low range forward. Yes I have a "feel" for the gears. You still never know when its going to happen. Often after shifting to reverse and backing up a few feet it will make a loud bang and pop out of reverse!

Re: Gear Grinding

I had the same issue with my new 800s. when I called about it, the dealer said to make sure my idle was at proper spec. and that the belt needs to break in. It was very annoying for the handful of rides, but I usually tried shifted it into gear before I started the machine to cut down on trans grinding. After a few rides it shifts awesome with no grinding

Re: Gear Grinding

Remember it is not a car with a tranny. You MUST stop all the way before shifting.

You will probably hear a clunk when taking off.

Re: Gear Grinding

At 6500 miles I'm purty sure its broke in. Actually if you don't come to a complete stop sometimes it goes in gear better than if you do! It's not me guys its a problem with the design or some component faulty. I bet my tranny is full of steel shavings by now.

Re: Gear Grinding

My gears were grinding in every gear I put it in, I found my primary bearing was locked up, after I had the bearing changed we noticed you had to slightly push in on the clutch spring to get the bearing to rotate freely so I had to change the clutch also. Now its smooth as butter.
