I have a 2015 Gator 550 with only 4.8 hours on it. While driving it today, it started becoming hard to shift between L,H,N, and R. Sounds exactly like many of the other complaints I've read from 2012 - 2014 owners in this forum with far more hours on their machines. I thought I had read that John Deere had identified the root issue in 2013 and began installing a different clutch in the 550s, but I'm wondering if perhaps that was wrong.

Are there any other 2015 owners out there who have also experienced clutch issues? The warranty expired on this in April 2017 (this was bought new in April 2016), so even though it's not even broken in yet, I'm afraid I'll be out of luck on a warranty replacement.

Any suggestions in getting a reliable replacement clutch?

Thank you,

Jason

I have an early 550 and one of the first clutches MBDiagman tuned for this model. Years later my Gator is still running beautifully.
