If this is in the wrong section please let me know so I can move it…I recently bought a 2016 outlander 850 xmr. The guy I got it from said the gearbox had just been rebuilt. After about 10 hours of riding I had a grinding sound on deceleration. Shortly after I tried putting the bike in reverse it was a no go. Took it back to the house sprayed it off to get a better look and tried switching to reverse, now the selector is reading reverse but it rolls like it’s in neutral. Anybody had this problem or something similar? Thanks

Grinding noise is not usually good.
The first thing I'd do, is check to see if you have a bent shift lever, causing the gearbox to not be selected correctly.
Remove the shift linkage from the gearbox shift arm and manually select the gears that way.
Ride the bike and determine if you still have an issue using all the gears.
If the problem is solved , then adjust/straighten the shift linkage.

I’ve already tried. Removed shift linkage and it won’t move out of reverse. Drained oil and found what look like needles from a bearing. It’s looking like I’ll be down for a while
