Need opinions

I have a 2016 rancher 420 ELECTRIC SHIFT SRA. I have a 2 inch lift with 30x9x14 vampire EDLs. I’m wanting to install a 53% GR. I had someone tell me that it would get hung up in higher gears. And possibly have shifting issues. Any info on this would be great.

I'm no pro here but 30" tires seem awful big for a 420.Might be better to sell or trade that 420 for a bigger bike.

MY question is, are they talking about the electric shift issue's some e shifts develop, or, actually sticking in gear due to the GR ?
IMO< too, 30's even with that GR, them high gears are NOT going to be seeing any real use, minus maybe going down hill LOL
Ranchers are geared higher than foreman's and even with the GR your looking at, I still say your not going to be very happy with power to the ground

I am NO expert on GR's , so maybe others that are can add more to things
Maybe Mac or Fish ?/
they play way more in this end of mods than I do!

Your best bet would be to contact Jeremy Lee via book face. IMO he would be the leading manufacturer in GR’s.
