Reverse lever delete?

Is there a way to bypass the requirement to pull the red lever back just exactly right before it will go into reverse? I find mine to be very picky, and it's a stupid feature anyway, since any other atv lets you just shift into reverse via lever. I suspect it going to get annoying when it comes to plowing snow this winter, but maybe I'm wrong.

Thanks guys

Correct dumb feature....on the cable that runs from the little lever there's an adjuster, adjust it until its no longer necessary to pull it. It won't go into reverse either by accident no worries.It makes it way more user friendly.

Will it hurt the transmission over time. I have a 2016 rubicon. Or can I just tie the red handle open for now. Pain in ass for plowing.

If you have the automatic Rubicon it won't let you shift fast enough to cause damage. If you have the foot shift then it is possible for you to shift fast enough to give problems. A little common sense and shifting when stopped and you will have no problems. Every 4 wheeler I have has the reverse lock out deleted.

Good Advice. I did the same. There is a small jam nut on the barrel adjuster on the cable, just a few inches from the red lever . Just spin the barrel adjuster counter clockwise to maybe 8-10 revolutions enough for the reverse to engage without pulling the lever. The re-tighten the jam nut....done.

I took me long me longer to type this than to do it!

If you have to take your bike back to the shop, just spin the barrel back to original setting
