Is your Gator hard to shift into and out of gear?

Open the cargo box, from the right side youll see the fan grille.
Above that you see a small panel with the choke cable on it.

The panel is held on by 2 philips screws, take the screws out but leave the choke cable on and let the panel hang.
If you remove the choke you have to take off the top cover to put it back in again so just gently easy it down.

Now you see the carb inside and to the left side of it you will see an idle screw. Turn anticlockwise to lower rpm turn clockwise to raise rpm.

Might be a little fiddly but its doable.

Also here on the front is the little plastic air fuel knob.
Whatever you are doing, if you want to touch it please come back here and i will explain you how because these are prone to breaking off.

Also, sticky clutch on older machines = jd clutch doc
Also, if you can remove the cargo box with a helper, save your back and head and do so

Jimmy P, let me say that the shift cables on the 550's are a lame design from the get go. When the primary clutch starts hanging up and not fully releasing at idle like it should, there is drive pressure on the transmission that makes it very difficult to shift with the weak cable setup. The primary clutch will need to be removed from the machine and given some TLC. If you're the kind of guy who likes to work on things yourself, I can give you some pointers. Or you can pull your clutch and send it out to be tweaked. I lost count long ago of all the Gator's I've had in the shop for repair of hard shifting issues.
