  • Reverse gear

    Hi, is it possible to install a reverse gear on our bikes?

  • #2
    I have a trike and it would be nice at times. I am guessing if it can be done it would be $$$

      NASA could probably do it for you. Give them a call. A service monkey may be cheaper though.

        I beleave NASA would put nitrogen jets on the front, pointing forward.

      Not easily or readily available. Buy a goldwing trike or Harley Trike or new Star Venture if you need reverse

        Never heard of it being done. You might be the first.

          Short answer? No. Not easily or cheaply anyway. But I find having a rider's backrest makes backing the bike up a whole lot easier; especially on slight inclines. Plus it makes riding a hell of a lot more comfortable and it's *way* cheaper too.

            Forner GW rider here. The Goldwing system uses the starter. There's a lever on the left side of the bike that you pull and I assume that brings a reversing gear into play. Then you hit the Star button and the starter engages, moving you backward. It's not so fast that you can lift your feet; it's more of a decent walking speed. IIRC, you're supposed to use it no more than about 30 seconds at a shot so you don't overheat the starter.

              Sad that Yelvington MRP works only for Harley. They could easily modify it for Xv bikes

                You really are asking for an expen$i've Tran$mission overhaul...not in anyway fea$able!.

                  I'll bet you any amount of money you would like to bet that NO shop will do this conversion complete and ready to go For less than $3000 USD.

                    heres a thread i found, Yelvington MRP replaces the EOM pulley/cush drive with rubbers. , trikes dont use cush drive, ????

                    https://www.roadglide.org/threads/re...ptions.374243/

                    I tested the Yelvington Reverse which I believe is the Suspension Technologies reverse at Sturgis a couple of years ago. It worked really good. I ask if it could be used if the bike was converted to a trike and was told no. I would want a system that works for 2 or 3 wheels. I have not added a reverse yet I'm still using Flintstone power to back the bike up but my knees are giving out. Just throwing it out there.2018 Road Glide

                          The trike would be like a Divining rod and point straight at that thing
