Hey Guys,

I come to you for help. I need help in finding a mechanical reverse kit for a 2002 mxz 700. Does anyone know of someone selling this or a store online that they'd recommend?

Why would you want mechanical reverse when RER electronic reverse was an option on your sled?

I would look for the RER parts and go that route myself.

Honestly I would probably take mechanical over the rer. I liked the mechanical reverse better from my old sled. Just the way it works. Personal preference only maybe?

Keep your eye on kijiji, these forums, and ebay.ca. They pop up from time to time. When I looked for sled parts (I live in Saskatchewan) before, I just kept on checking all those, and managed to find stuff. I found these forums pretty good, for the most part.

Thanks, I am on Kijiji now looking in all of Ontario, lol. I'm going to expand to all of Canada soon with hopes the seller would ship it :D

I didn't think adding RER was that difficult. Pull flywheel, tap 2 holes, install dual trigger coils, install RER flywheel, add a momentary push button and swap out MPEM.
What would you gain with RER over mechanical? Mechanicals seem pretty easy to install and cheap too.

Nothing I guess. a little weight. I just did the RER because it was easier to source then a mechanical set up. I forgot to mention in the previous post that you need an RER secondary too. Formula clutch won't be happy with RER, I was using a Team TSS-04 so I didn't need the HPV secondary. RER will go faster in reverse;) Lol

Ah I see, that sounds like a lot more $$$ in parts for the sake of a few pounds. The chain case gets swapped out with a different one and a handle gets added, i guess that would add about 3 pounds in total.

With out a doubt it could be more expensive. Just saying that it isn't that difficult to do. When I wanted to add reverse to my 02 MXZ700x I looked at all options, found 2 mechanical set-ups and both were asking $350 for them. I found a fellow Dootalker parting out a 02 Renegade 700 with DPM and RER, perfect! Gave him $200 for all the stuff I needed. It took 2 months to get the package but it showed up. The DPM RER MPEM is the hardest part to find, only 1 year they were used before they switched to the 360w stator. If you can get a mechanical set up reasonable go that route.

Ah I see, yea at this point I can get a mint mechanical reverse with everything I need shipped to my door by end of next week for $300, sounds like the best bet for me :)

I went with RER because it was actually cheaper then mechanical. I don't think the guy at the salvage yard knew how much more RER was worth then the mechanical.
