how does reverse work,duh!

this is my first experience with a raptor. its 01 660. can't figure out the reverse, maybe i'm a stupid a$$, or maybe it doesn't even work. could anyone guide me to possible backward success?

put it in first, clucth it and turn knob on the right fender, then downshift one time. the 2001's didn't have the reverse limiter. most people, like myself when i had the 660, overrided it so they would be like the 2001's. hang on that thing will flyyy in reverse if working properly!

let me understand this properly, shift down one into first, then hit knob and shift down a second time?

yep that's right. you basically just need to be in first gear to get to reverse or even neutral. if you're starting from neutral, you'll shift down once for first, then turn knob and shift down once more. and when you want to get out of reverse, just upshift and you will be back into first. if your reverse knob or anything is broken, look into the dr. d reverse. awesome mod, cheap and your hands never leave the handlebars for reverse!

You have to bypass the reverse limiter

Most of the people I know that have bypassed the rev limiter, remove the bypass. Going fast in reverse isn't fun.

Either you have an aftermarket CDI or you are over revving the engine. 2001 did not have a reverse limiter
