Has anybody had trouble with there SE 5 not going into reverse, and what could be the problem. I
haven't moved the bike since November since I live in a cold weather state. I started it today and it
wouldn't go into reverse. Thanks in advance.

Check out this string, which discussed various shifting problems, including reverse, with the SE5:

I will try a shot in the dark idea. Start and warm up the Spyder to as many bars as possible. Manually move the Spyder until you can put it in 1st gear and drive away. Drive around shifting through the gears. Stop in a parking lot and try to go into reverse again. BRP has a mod fix for the SE5 that dealers will do for you at no charge. I had mine done and the difference is like night and day. Shifting up or down is a lot more responsive and much smoother. No more lurch when gears are automatically downshifted, and manual downshifting is a lot better.

Ask your dealer to check the TPS and the GBPS sensors. I was having some minor shifting and reverse problems but after they reset both sensors the Spyder pops in and out of reverse with no effort and have had no more hesitation upshifting.

TPS: Throttle Position Sensor
GBPS: Gear Box Position Sensor

Good luck

I have a 2011 rt s, manual shift.  It has been in storage for 5 months and when I went to get it out It wouldn't shift out of first, forward or reverse.  But, if I pulled the clutch lever I could move the bike.  I shut the bike off and shifted the gears manually and it shifted easily into all the forward gears but not reverse.  Then when I started it the clutch would not disengage.  There is no, or very little, tension on the clutch lever.  Any ideas???

 

Thanks
