This is definately a newbie question.

The lip going into my garage is about 1" to 1.5" high. I can't seem to get the bike to back over it. It just sets there and slips. I tried reving the engine but that didn't work either. Is there a technique to operating the reverser?

Thanks

Les

You could put a small 1/2 inch piece of wood prior to the 1-inch lip. That may help guide the bike up past it. Then just put your block of wood in the garage for storage.

I have to give a two-feet assist to get mine to back into my garage with that same 1.5 inch edge. There's just not enough torque in the system to cope with it.
