  1. Great info, now I understand why that procedure works. Thank you.
  2. I had downloaded the service manual and followed it's procedure. Simple and seemed to help but don't ask me how. Place transmission in N then loosen the nuts on each end of the shift rod (right side is righty loosey. Then retighten them.
  3. I did try holding in L until moving and that works. After I adjusted the linkage it doesn't seem quite so bad. Thanks for the input.
  4. Good info Cliff. Thanks. I may try the synthetic route next oil change.
  5. Thanks for the response. It has 275 miles on it. Yes, if engine warms up for a minute or so it shifts just fine. Oil used is 10W40 conventional oil and it was changed within the last few days. This morning I put transmission in neutral then loosened then tightened the shift rod nuts as per maintenance manual. I don't know if it helped or not because engine is warm. I will try it again tomorrow AM and see if it made a difference.
  6. No, it's a hard SNAP almost like it didn't quite get in gear and then loudly slaps into place and sometimes the UTV will jump ahead slightly even with my foot on the brake.
  7. When I start my Massimo MSU500 with cold engine and start off in L gear I hear a loud bang or snap and then it goes. Doesn't do it once engine is warmed up. Is idle too high or is cold idle controlled by CPU? I couldn't find any help on Youtube. Maybe shift linkage? I would greatly appreciate any input. Thanks, I am new to the group and appreciate this forum. Vince
