Is it only when shifting out of Park? That may be because you're parked on an incline. to solve that just rock your bike back and forth a little.Sometimes it is very hard, sometimes it is easy, anyone got any tricks to solve the issue of hard shifting. Do you all have hard shifting at times, or all the time?
If you are referring to shifting from park to H, L or R, tapping the throttle and then letting it rev back down before shifting will loosen it up. I guess I should have been more clear that you let it rev back to normal before shifting. I have owned a grizzly, rhino, Viking and now a Kodiak and they all do this. Very normal .I respectfully disagree :|
If you do that you will damage your transmission and possible the clutch components. Only shift with engine at idle speed!
if it’s difficult getting out of gear just give a little throttle and move a couple of more inches. Apply the brake so there’s no load on the transmission and change gears. Works for me.Just a follow up. Today I pulled into some deep snow and forgot to put it in park. When I went to start it, I could not get it out of Low. I did rock it hard by lunging forward and backward with my body and finally got it to come out of Low. It goes into Park easy when it is running, and that is the time to put it there.
