The motor should not die. When you put the machine in reverse it limits the machine to 5 mph, anything over that speed the machine retards the timing unless the override button is pushed.

So maybe it is retarding too much and thats why it dies?is it the cdi box or is there another type controller?does someone have a wiring book with a digrame?

I have the same issue

Any fix yet for this? My 94 Sportsman 400L Dies in reverse unless the OD switch is pressed. Pretty Annoying!
