So, got the gator back from my J D dealer. They replaced the clutches on my 550 and the belt under warrantee, no cost to me. The mechanic said because of the new belt it might take about an hour of running before the shifting got smoother. If it gets any smoother it will be better than my car! So far, this thing is smooth! Shifts out of reverse into forward, I even have been able to find neutral! Good job from my dealer! Love this machine!

My 550 S4 swifted great for the first month but now it sticks from time to time. The dealer said because I live on an Island the salt maybe getting to the cables and besure I spray them with WD40 from time to time. Jim does your 550 clunk when coming out of 4WD?

It used to but not anymore since they put the new clutches in. The mechanic at J D said it would be stiff for the first hour or so because of the new bely. He was right, now it keeps getting smoother and smoother. I hope this helps.
