i was riding today and my raptor cut out like it was out of gas and the reverse light came on. I let off the throttle and it cleared up, got back on the throttle and it cut out again with the light coming on. I had gas, but i had just put it on reserve. Any suggestions???????

Check the wire/plug below your sprocket, it's the sensor for reverse and some folks have had trouble with them coming loose. Also, make sure your reverse cable below the right foot peg has some slop in it, if it's too tight it can trigger the reverse sensor even though you aren't in reverse.

It cant be the reverse lever cable but you are right about the wire. Yamaha in their infinite wisdom designed the most arse backwards electronics I have ever seen.

You will see this more and more as the 2002 and up raptors get older since if you look at the reverse sensor funny it will break and that is an integral part of the CDI reverse rev limiter. It will ruin many weekend trips.

Do your self a favor and get a bypass kit or build your own - but keep in mind your reverse light will no longer work without the 80$ kit reviewed on bluetraxx.

I had looked at the cable under the sprocket and found that it had been loose. Thank you so much the problem was so simple to fix. I had merely crimped it a little to hold tight it is working perfectly
