Where do you get reverse overrides or can you do it yourself?

All I did was put a little nut in there, those are usually free off the garage floor. Works great. No need to worry about going to rev. accidently either, I cant even get to N without being stopped.

You can get the same result by using the cable adjustment on the lever.

I made mine out of a small piece of copper tubing. I just cut it the lenght of the gap, and then split it the length. Put it around the cable and then close the part back up that you split. Pretty simple really and is a great mod!

everytime you to go in reverse, you have to hold in the red button, hold in the break and shift down. puting the spacer on the cable pulls the cable the just like holding down the red button and shifting down. with this over ride in place you can just shift down from N into R without holding down the red button and pull the break.
its simple to try on your atv, no il-effects can come from this. your engine has to be lower then 3000rpms in order for it to shift down from N. so theres no chance on shifting into R by acident.

Mine used to be a real bitch to get into reverse. I lubed both the reverse cable and the rear brake cable. Cleaned and oiled the lever and adjusted the reverse cable. Shifts into reverse so easily now that I would not even consider the override mod unless I was using a plow.
Still worried that agressive riding and shifting or even bumping the shifter accidentally would end up with me hitting reverse while still moving forward.
