GM All. First, I would like to intro myself as a new member and admit that I have limited mechanical skills and/knowledge. I have a 2008 Polaris Sportsman 800 that cuts off when I put it in reverse. If I gun the throttle I can get it going in reverse before it cuts off. Any thoughts or suggestions would truly be appreciated.

sounds like problem with the rev limiter circuit could be the throttle cable out of adjustment the switch in the throttle housing, i don't have a lot of experience with this model Polaris, anybody else?

You know there is a rev limiter that engages in reverse right? You have to hold the yellow button in on the left handlebar to disable it. Otherwise you can't do too much more than a crawl in reverse. Be careful...
