Here is my cure for grinding into gear when cold. Never a problem when engine is warm and idling slow. I am my own warranty. I am not a osha safety cop! That said here is my solution. I park in the barn headed out. I installed a switch by the battery that grounds the safety switch located on the rear of the transmission behind the muffler. I just added a circuit to this terminal and ground it through the toggle and leave the mule in low range. Pull the choke, hit starter, starts up and creeps forward on high idle. Run out to mailbox and idles fine. I hope I do not get flamed by all for this solution. Tim

mine only grinds in high gear when it's really cold.
The reason for the grinding in any gear may be the misadjusted cables.
Otherwise, great idea. It would help me to not have to stick it in neutral everytime it stalls from being cold.

The reason it grinds is because the belt is turning in the clutch cover on high idle, it has to be stopped before shiftinting into any gear. When you take the choke off when it is cold, the engine will often die and that is the dilema. We all know this mod is for people who understand that we are starting the machine in gear!
