Will not shift into reverse

"HELP" my 98 grizzly will not shift into reverse with the rear brake activated but it shifts into low and high with no problem.

Hmm that doesnt sound good! Have you tried pulling the metel ring just below the floorboard, this ring manually pulls the break if for some reason your pedel wont go down far enough. When I bent my floorboard on my 2001 I had to do this to get mine into reverse. If not, you have a bad sensor! Shouldnt be too hard to find.

We just fixed 2 Grizzleys with the same problem. The brake pedal has a cable that runs up to the "shift box". Take the boot off the top of the shift box and where that cable goes in there is a metal "stud" that keeps it from going in reverse. When you press the brake pedal that stud releases allowing you to shift into reverse.

I am willing to bet, that stud is seized up. On the bottom of the shift box is a drain plug. Take it out and spray some WD40 or something similar on the stud to try to get it to release. Good luck. We had to pry on the stud to get it to go in and now it stays in.
