Hi I don't use 4x4 much and I had to use it today because I got stuck and after I got out I turned 4x4 off and it seemed to take a min for the 4x4 pic to come off the dash but when I turn 4x4 on it comes on in a few seconds. I'm wondering if it is normal for it to take so long to go back to 2wd? I also tried to rock the atv back and forth to make it change but didn't seem to do anything

mine does that sometimes , other times it's fine. i think it depends on the position of the 4x4 mechanism.

I've found it engages and disengages much faster if the wheels are all straight and slowing rolling on flat ground.

Very easy speed up and slow down . Second you let go of throttle it should release the pressure and come out of 4x4

My 2014 800 XXC had a problem where it was slow to go into 4x4 and then slow to back to two wheel drive.  I ended up replacing the throttle assembly housing where the 4x4 switch is located and problem solved.

If you have a difference in tyre diameters between the front and rear, this will make it harder for the actuator to come out of 4wd.
