I have an 01 Sportsman 500 HO that I have been having a hard shifting problem. I beleive linkage needs adjusted but have not gotten to it yet. Noticed this week while plowing that the Reverse indicator light is staying on in all ranges now. This causes the machine to need revers over ride button held down in order to fully throttle bike as it makes bike think its in R all the time. Is there a switch somewhere that I need to check out or what is goin on here? I am able to shift in between ranges ok, but R light stays on everywhere except Neutral.

adjust your linkage rods. It is not shifting enough into gear. You may also need to replace the gear shift selector switch. It sounds like you have two issues.
