I have a kazuma red cat 150, it's very hard to switch from

Customer Question

I have a kazuma red cat 150, it's very hard to switch from forward to reverse or visa versa. Most of the time it's stuck in whatever previous gear it was in, regardless of where the lever is. Is there a simple fix for this or the gear box is shot?

Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.

The first thing that I would check is the engine idle speed. If the engine is running to high or fast of an idle it is going to be almost impossible to shift the gears. Does it make it easier to shift if you shut the engine off?
