Yamaha Big Bear 350 Reverse not Working

Recommended Posts

I have a Yamaha Big Bear 350 and the reverse doesn’t work, it shifts from low to high easily but it won’t go back to reverse. I’m new to this stuff, so I’ll take any help. Any ideas?

Does the shifter feel wrong ? Is it shifting into reverse but not moving ? Have you checked the fluids in the gear case ?

lastly try getting all four wheels off the ground and see if the bike goes into reverse.

Wow great point @Ajmboy i remember this topic! Could very well be just that ! 

I think it was the brake cable  adjustment or the linkage.  One or the other, we had another member that made adjustments and was no longer to get in reverse and he put it back where it was and it was fine. Maybe @Arizona

It shifts from low to high while not running but when I try to go to reverse it just is stiff like the cable doesn’t move. Should I lower the idle bar and see if that does it?

On mine I had to loosen up the foot pedal adjustment, I guess it needed to move more.

I adjusted my rear brakes and that's what caused the problem, after loosening them up 

it worked again, Also had to be in 1st in order to go into reverse. Seemed to be a problem

an each Yamaha I have owned. Just got rid of one and same issues.

Might check with Laval, seems he has some experience with Yamaha and their reverse.

Don’t think I can help on this one. Mine was a 03 and automatic. However on that one you had to depress the foot brake to shift to reverse. There was a locking pin on the foot brake linkage. I deleted that to bypass the brake/reverse thing.

      I purchased 2 Yamaha Raptor 125s a few months ago and I purchased a membership here to be able to access the service manual. I have looked at the service manual multiple times in the past month but I don’t see it here anymore in the download section! Can someone help me and tell me how to access this manual again?
