When trying to put my 2016 1000-5 in reverse the gears just grind. I made the cable adjustment under the battery, didn't seam to change anything . The dash indicator shows the machine is in "R" , no codes or other warnings. If you give it a little gas it slams into reverse , pops in and out of reverse. Every other gear seams to be fine.

1,900 mile on the machine, I have adjusted the tranfer case likage under the drivers seat.

I have searched the forum and have not yet found anyone with the same issue. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Just because you are adjusting the cable, do you know for a fact it is actually moving anything? Even though this sounds potentially way-out-there, I would be sure to charge the battery and make sure it is in excellent shape, because I know from experience when you battery is low and depending on "electronics" quirky things happen. How is the unit responding going up through the gears?

Does it shift into reverse with the engine not running?

You may have to rock it a bit while not running to engage. This will determine the next troubleshooting step.

I would say no it does not. Put it in reverse and push forward or backward it goes " click, click,click click.

How many hr job is this for the average garage mechanic ? Any special tools needed ?

Why does this happen and what will keep it from happening again ?

VERY disappointed, only 1,900 miles and it has not been beat, rode hard at all.
