Massimo Tboss 410 won't operate in reverse


Recommended Posts

i purchased a brand new massimo tboss 410 and from day 1 it wont operate in reverse.  When i pop in reverse and give it gas it will die out.  when i pop in reverse sometimes in will die right away (before giving any gas) and 1 time out of 100 when i pop in reverse it will operate perfectly fine.   and yes, it operates perfectly dine in normal drive H and L.  any thoughts??   when i called the dealer i got it from they had no idea.

We are having the same issue with the Boss 550.  The reverse is giving us problems.  Its not dying out, but just not going. Got the reverse beep, (ANNOYING AS HELL) But is not wanting to go in reverse. Sounds like some ringing in there. This thing is brand new. It hardly gets used, and its not like it turns on a dime, so without reverse we are basically without it.   This thing wasnt cheap, and its problem after problem. Forward is fine.   CMON yall.... whats the deal? Is your buggy just junk? Is there a fix? 

Kinda wishing we got something else.

Most likely needs the shift cable adjusted, but also make sure the rear differential fluid is at the correct level.  These "dealers"  know nothing about the machines they are selling for the most part.  If you don't know what the level should be, it should barely touch the end of an allen key when inserted (about 3/4" below hole).

As TapBoss said, most likely the shift cable needs adjusting. If new it was not adjusted right from the getgo. If older the linkage is warn or cable is stretched. 

Either way the manual should give directions on how to adjust the cable. If nothing search YouTube for a couple video. If you can't find one for your model look for a setup that is close.

Unfortunately the manual doesn’t, at least not that I could find

So I also have a Tboss 410 with the same issue. Almost as if it is stalling out. I also notoced the speedometer is not reading the speed correctly. When im idling in nuetral the speedometer shows im moving when im not. When im driving in forward the speed is not accurate. I had previously unhooked the back up beeper and i thought that is what caused the issues so i reattached it. Issue still exsists. Everything works fine driving forward in H and L. other than the speedometer not working accurately. It just really does not like going in reverse. Sometimes all I ha e to do is shift ot in Reverse and it stalls. Any thoughts?

I have recently encountered this problem on my 2022 Massimo 410 t-boss. High and low gear work fine. Dies instantly as soon as it is given any throttle in reverse and speedometer is haywire. For six months I have checked everything from fluid levels, to cable adjustments, to throttle position sensors, to O2 sensors. I have reset the CPU all to no avail, until recently. There is a connection located under the output shaft of the transfer case, that is pretty well hidden, that vibrated loose and became uncoupled. As soon as this was reconnected reverse works flawlessly, speedo is accurate and there is no more surging in high gear. I hope this helps as the dealers and Massimo support are of very little assistance.

      I have a 2018 Massimo 700 MSU with the Delphi MT05 ECU.
      I have seen an alternative ECU reset procedure that involves running the engine at WOT for 5 seconds in neutral and then shutting down while throttle still at WOT.  The articles include comments that the rev limiter will prevent engine overspeed ad attendant damage. 
      1. Is this actually a recommended procedure for restting the ECU on a 700 MSU?
      2. What is the rev limited maximum RPM for the 700 MSU?
      I initiated this procedure but when the RPM exceeded 6000 I immediately terminated the process. It simply seemed excessive to me to continue.
       
      Any and all responses are greatly appreciated.

      I have a 2018 Massimo Buck 400 with 278 miles. 
      Having issues with my brakes. Took the buggy hunting and when I let my foot off the gas pedal it pulls without pressing on the brake. I looked and the pads on all 4 wheels are all toast. The E-Brake hasn’t been on since I have had it. I am guessing it may be a master cylinder issue because all 4 pads are gone. They all seem to have worn evenly that’s why I think the master cylinder. Just got the machine used from a older couple and they said it sat for some time in there pole barn. Possibly the brake lines? Calipers? I took one brake apart and when I depressed the caliper it didn’t stay. Any help is muck appreciated.

      I'm a newbie.  While I'm testing out my new to me 2021 Massimo T-Boss 410 winch, I broke the Orange Ring that fits around the cable.  I can't see much of a purpose for this ring, other than to be in the way, and to break.  Is this ring really necessary?  I did find it on the Massimo winch parts diagram, but I'm thinking,  Meah?  Am I wrong?   (It's # 13 and 14 on the parts diagram, attached)
      Thanks.

      I'm still a newbie with my 2021 Massimo T-Boss 410.  I see there is a parts list on the Massimo site for the T-Boss 410, and another parts list for the T-Boss 410, before 2020.  What changed for this model in 2020?  Just curious.  I can't find anything on the web.

      My "R" light on the dash will not go out when I take the UTV out of reverse and put it into any other gear. Is this just the light switch issue or will this effect engine performance in the other gears?
