gear indicator acting up

I have a stock 07 Honda GPScape Rubicon. When I start it up the gear indicator just has the two dashes showing like as if it is between gears and the D1, D2, and ESP indicator just blinks. When I put it in forward gear the bike moves just like normal but when I put it in reverse it spits and sputters and acts like it is gonna die, will barely make the bike move. It hasnt been run much just sits in garage with a battery tender on battery waiting for the next snow storm so it can do some plowing. Anybody have an idea where to start looking for problem?

As far as the gear indicator goes, there could be a wire shortage somewhere.follow the wires from the indicator to the battery compartment and see if there's a notch somewhere making the connection bad. Or it could just be going out and you should look in the manual on how to replace it. The reverse deal, how long was the atv running before you put it in reverse?
