Won't shift into reverse rhino 700

Hi guys, anyone had a problem with a rhino 700 not shifting into reverse? I have checked the linkage OK. I have taken off the linkage and tried shifting directly on the engine and it still won't go in. I really don't want to pull the engine apart to check the shift drum. Help.

Thanks

Are you sure?

The machine moves no problem. I hauled out a moose and had power to all wheels, no grinding, no noise it just won't shift into reverse. I took off the shifter bracket assembly and tried turning the shift drum. Works fine low, high and neutral. You can feel it in the detents perfectly it just won`t go into reverse. It is like it will not go far enough.
Would like to bring it to you but I am in Northern Ontario Canada.
Thanks

this is not a solution for stated problem.

this is a linkage, or tranny problem, not a MDG issue.

lower the idle. check the bolt that linkage connect too on the motor ( it backs out sometimes)

does it go into rev when shut off????

Hi Bill, I have nothing loose. Sometimes if I play with it it will go into reverse then it slips our after moving the machine 2 inches. I am trying to shift it right on the shaft for the shift drum. It is really looking like I am going to have to go in. Maybe a broken spring between the shift forks??? I am sure that it is nothing expensive, but it will be time consuming.

Well here is the problem. The reverse idler wheel bushing, yes bushing, wore out and caused the small snap ring to slide over allowing the gear to move on the shaft. Yamaha doesn't say that this is a common problem and won't acknowledge any problems being reported but they have changed the design of this gear and shaft assembly and also put a spacer in to keep the gear in place. I am hoping that they also use a roller bearing rather than a bushing. Engine out four hours, engine tear down and cleaning three hours waiting on parts. I really hope they have made the change on newer 700's. I am sure that this is going to be a really big problem for anyone with this old gear arrangement.
