Textron 2018 stampede problem shifting gears


Recommended Posts

My 900 Stampede has been the same way since day 1. It doesn’t like up or downhill parking. You have to jerk it out of park and it makes me sick to do it. It gets bound up parking on an angle and I wish they’d find a fix for it. The best thing to do is leave it in gear. If you park uphill, leave it in Drive. Downhill, reverse. That’s what I do anyway.

I was excited to read this, as my machine is the same way.  Get's really tight to pop out of park when on a hill (ie the park pawls in the transmission are holding a load)  What you describe is exactly what I do with my Prowler, as the parking brake on that machine is just junk.  Leave it in L or H if its facing downhill, leave it in R if uphill. Not sure why I didn't think of trying that with the Stampede.  I tried it yesterday and my machine just rolls in gear (with the engine off of course), so no luck for me.

Get a boat trailer wheel chock and use it. The shifter cable is rather fragile where it connects up front just past the dash. I bent mine in two rocking it back and forth when I found myself high centered the second day I had it. There are many aspects I like about my Stampede and many I don’t. It’s too loud and no one makes an after-market system to quieten it. It needs more ground clearance. The motor puts off too much heat. I have to admit I’ve had buyers remorse.

I have had a Bad Boy Stampede for almost two years now. I really like the machine but it seems like everytime I run it over 40 mph for more then a couple hundred yards it starts leaking antifreeze. The mechanic says it's a seal in the water pump, I've went through three water pumps now. Does anyone else have this problem?  And if so is there a fix for this?
