I have a 2011 Gator 850 i that I use on my small farm . Recently, I've had problems shifting between neutral, drive and reverse . The shifter is binding up . Sometimes it pops out of drive when I'm just starting to move. Problem came on suddenly . Increasing RPMs , then letting off seems to help when going from N to D or R. Has anyone had similar problem or insight on fix . Thank you .

Shift cable is either bent or bracket bent that retains the cable. I have seen this several times when you don't let the engine rpm's come down to 1100 or less before shifting into gear and has to be forced in.

Yep the shift cable is in a bind. My brother in law had a similar problem with his 2008 and he replaced the cable. Luckily it was still under warranty then. :D
