Reverse lockout override

I found this awhile back,and made one according to this video,and it works great... YouTube - ‪TRX Honda foreman 500 reverse button overide‬‏ ...Since I am unable to get from forward gear to reverse without going through neutral,and I always stop,and engage the brakes when doing any direction changes(cept when in mud,and not moving) it helps with much quicker,less fumblesome reverse changes...

You can do the same thing by just adjusting the cable. Loosen the lock nut and adjust the cable until it pulls the lever up and then tighten the lock nut back down and you're done. Takes less than 30 seconds.

Most 4-wheeler problems are caused by a loose nut connecting the handlebars and the seat!!

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

Depends on which model you have, but it will be on one end of the reverse cable. On the Fourtrax 300, it's located down near the right foot peg, near the reverse lockout lever. On most of the newer ATVs, it's located on the other end of the cable, near the left hand brake lever.

Most 4-wheeler problems are caused by a loose nut connecting the handlebars and the seat!!

No problem. If it's a 500 Foreman, like in the video, the adjustment is at the end of the cable where it hooks to the left hand brake/reverse lever. Just adjust the cable out to make the outer sheath or the cable longer and it will pull the reverse lockout lever up. Then, just tighten the lock nut back down. That's the first thing I do to every Honda I get.

You can also use a piece of large size vaccum hose. This also works on ranchers, could possibly work on anything with that stupid button. And if you have kids you pull it out and they have to think a little bit!
