Unhappy Dies in reverse

I have a 2001 Polaris Magnum 325. When cold, it stalls immediately when I put it in reverse. Low and High are fine. It seems as though once it warms up it's fine and does not do it. I'm about 99% sure it's electrical because when I disconnect the elec. connectors from the transmission it doesnt do it. (I couldn't find anything on this in the manual?)

Any help greatly appreciated.

Not sure if this model is equipped with a reverse override but it seems like that could be causing a problem if it were broken. Switch is probably bad or even just really dirty. That's where I would start otherwise just don't drive backwards

More than likely the rev limiter is bad.
