Took my GTX 550 off the trailer, last weeknd. reverse worked fine.Went to my cabin, went to reverse into my parking space, but no reverse. Any indications of where i can look for the problem?

Did you let the engine return to full idle before attempting to shift it?

If engine rpm is too high, it will not switch direction.

Most likely that the switch itself is the problem.

Does it do nothing when you hit the button or does it stall? if it does nothing than I agree with RJ that its probably the button. do you haul on an open trailer? I have been seeing lots of issues with electrical plugs and switches on these newer ski doos due to salt damage from open trailer hauling

Mine only works when you first start it up (every time!), when its cold. After it warms up, It does nothing (every time!). Either it idles too high when warm, or a sensor heats up?

Your idle is too high.

Does a machine generally idle higher when warm than when cold? And the idle can be lowered by turning the screw on the carb? Sorry, I'm new at this. And what should it be at? Cold RPM? Warm RPM?
