2008 Trail Boss Reverse Problems

Trail Boss will not stay in reverse; it makes a grinding noise and jumps out of reverse. When i pull hard on the lever and keep constant pressure it will go in reverse. Thinking the linkage may need adjusted; I removed linkage and put in reverse without linkage but still will not stay in reverse. Runs perfect in forward any ideas?????

I've got the same problem with my 95 Sportsman 400. Since I don't use reverse all that much, I've been procrastinating in getting it fixed. I have to keep pressure on the stick otherwise it'll jump out of gear. I'd be interested in knowing if it's something to adjust or will I have to take it in.

the enguagement cogs on the reverse gear are rounding out and should be changed.the more metal shavings that come off the gears the more damage done to the bearings and gears.
