No Reverse??

Postby WayneM » December 15th, 2002, 10:40 am

I have a 1996 Touring 380...when I put it in reverse it makes a loud grinding noise and doesn't move. Does the entire reverse assemble have to come out of the ski doo to inspect/fix this problem? Or can it be inspected/fixed while still in the Ski doo? Does anybody know what is wrong?

Mine (CAT) did that last year. It was out of adjustment & wasn't fully engaging.
Who said Cats can't swim?!?

If it just started doing this and it did not happen because someone did not stop before shifting to reverse to fix is pretty simple. Losen the shift rod at both ends (small nuts) and turn it so it applies a little more pressure towards the chaincase end (makes the adjustment rod longer) only a couple of threads at a time. Try maybe three to start. It dosen't take much. If your not sure go to a dealer. The adjustment is a 5 minute job. Good luck. Adam 01
