Question grinding reverse even after linkage adjustment

2000 550 trail touring sled. New gears, rebuilt motor. I picked this sled up for my mom recently and other than rejetting the carbs for our area, no problems except for the reverse.

The gears grind when you hit the gas in reverse. I adjusted the linkage and it still grinds, though when on a track stand it will not grind. Can't adjust the linkage any further out as it starts effecting the fwd gears.

Any ideas?

Open it up and look in there, possibly need to reshim or replace gears.

It looked all right in there when I opened it up the other day. Gears and chain are definitely new. What exactly should I be looking for in regards to the reverse? How do I tell if I need shims etc?

That you will have to check with someone else, I do not have the experience with a reverse setup.

Check your belt deflection. If its on the tight side it will cause exactly the problems you describe. It wont do it on the stand because there is no load on the drivetrain. Deflection should be no less than 1.25" with reverse.

Anything stock pretty much sucks!

OK thanks, I'll have to figure out how exactly to do that, but I suppose it can't be to hard.
