Reverse light comes on whlie driving in high

When im driving down the trail in (H) High range, my (R) reverse light on the dash comes on also, so the (H) and (R) are lite up at the same time and the engine cuts out for a few seconds, then the (R) will turn off and it will run fine for a little while then it will happen all over again, doesnt matter what speed im going the (R) will come on and off at anytime and the engine cuts out. Can anyone tell me why and how to fix this? Thanks in advance.

Start first with the shifter cable for adjustment! I can't say for sure but you need to start some where. It could be the shifter is moving and making contact some how?????

The reverse sensor is bad. It is on the left side of atv behind the motor and kinda looks like a spark plug. You can un clip it and ground the wire out and it will run fine. But be careful in reverse cause there will be no limiter now... or get a new sensor...

On 07 & 08 700's you can cure the problem several ways (probably works on other models also). 1. ground the wire to the switch (has side effects). 2. Put a thinner washer under the current rev/nuetral switch. 3. eliminate the washer and re-install the switch using thread sealant. 4. Install the newer updated switch (around $20 at online vendors).

Mines an 06 660, grounding out that wire will stop the engine from cutting out or does that just stop reverse light from flashing?

on the 700's the gear selector switch gets water in it. Its behind the cluch housing assembly, I have taken mine apart a few times, loaded up with dielectric grease and it will fix it.

Yes if it is the sensor also it will eliminate the light for the reverse on dash. If it is only cutting out once in a while just get it prepped for the mod.. Take a piece of wire and connect it to a engine bolt for the ground out and on the other end put a male bullet connector , then when it starts cutting out stop and unplug the sensor and connect it to the male bullet connector and it should cure your problem.. But remember the limiter in reverse will be gone...................

THERE WILL ALWAYS BE A YAMAHA IN MY SHOP!!!!!!!! and the womans Popo RZR.....
