shifting problems

I have a stock '07 rhino 660. shifting into neutral and low has become very frustrating. I have to push it twice for it to go into low. And trying to find neutral is hard.

I sure haven't. It's really frustrating though. Now it takes forever to start when it has been sitting for several days, it's like it isn't getting gas and i changed the fuel pump.

You may have to adjust your linkage rod from shifter to your transmition

or check that the bolt holding the arm onto the motor is tight, mine came loose, I used Blue locktite and never came loose again.

also check your idle speed, if it is too high, it will cause shifting problems while running.

for starting issues, check all vacuum lines to pump, check the "enrichener" connection at the carb, and clean inside also where the pin goes in.

regarding starting problems

i own a 2007 660 rhino and have always had an issue starting if she has sat for a while. Our local yamaha mechanic up here told me to grab hold of the roll cage and shake her violently. He claimes the needle tolerance is to tight.It works but there must be a better solution.

I agree with the idle being too high, when I had problems shifting it was because my idle was too high. I lowered it and it's been smooth as butter ever since.
