Hey guys,

Would like to know the best way to do a reverse mod. I plan on doing it this weekend but wanted get some input from others with experience first. Thanks for your help.

30 second mod.

Simply loosen the lock nut on the reverse cable (small cable on left side of handlebar) and tighen the adjuster until it will select reverse without pushing the red button and/or touching the brake lever. Then tighten the lock nut.

You can sit there in neutral(switch on) and keep pushing the shift down button as you tighten the cable, once it goes in to reverse you have it tight enough. You can give it another half turn to be sure of repeated action, but don't go any further as it will simply stretch the cable.

Let me know if you need more details and I will snap a pic or 2 for you.

You can also do it this way, it's what I did. You may need an extra hand to do it.

Press the reverse button and pull back the brake lever and have someone hold it. Then pull back the rubber cover, you should see the exposed brake cable and reverse cable. Take an average sized zip tie (the one I used was about 3/16" wide) and put the zip tie around the reverse cable and trim the excess. When you release the brake handle the zip tie will act as a spacer to hold the reverse lever out, you will be able to get into reverse without pulling the lever.
