I have been having a hell of a time with pulling my reverse lever out and down. It tends to stick and with all my strength I still cant seem to break it loose. Other times it works just fine. Is this happening to anyone else? Should I try to lube it more?

Tap your fun flipper till the clutch just barely engages, moving it like an inch forward. The clutch has to be aligned right, otherwise it won't go in. DON'T FORCE IT, otherwise you'll be ripping off the reverse handle. Its a pain, I know, but once you know, you can deal with it within seconds any time it happens.

still a brutal system, should be ER yamaha is so far advanced I'm surprised they're still using this system for reverse, not to mention it's extra weight which the 4 strokes don't need

If you can figure our how to make ER work on a four stroke you'll be a rich man I'm sure.

They could, however, come up with an electronic engagement much like Cat had.

As long as the ER is in a safe place. My buddy hit the ER button on his rev a couple of times in the air. *beep, beep, beep* in the air. He relocated the switch to his dash after that.
