Did this mod a couple months ago, don't know if anyone else has done it or not. We broke the gearshift on our gator and the mechanic at the dealer said he's had a lot of them which he suspected was from guys trying to shift to neutral while coasting to a stop (considering you have to be in neutral to restart it). So what I thought was, why can't we make it like the Polaris ranger and just press the brake pedal to start while it's still in gear, cutting your shifting of gears in half. So I talkedd with my mechanic and he said "hell yea, go for it!" And he printed me off a wiring diagram which ill attach a pic of.

The process is really pretty simple. Go under the front hood and remove the storage tray and look at the wires going to the switch on the brake pedal and the wires to the ignition. There should be a purple wire coming from the brake switch labeled '820A' and a purple wire coming from the ignition labeled '710'. All that needs to be done is splice a short jumper between these 2 wires, just 8" of wire and 2 butt connectors (cheap)!! After this you will have to unplug your neutral switch on top of the transmission, if I remember right it's the one closer to the back of the machine(I then siliconed the plugs to keep mud out in case I want to reuse them). If you don't unplug this power will backfeed through the system and turn the brake lights on while your in neutral.
