2004 660 sometimes doesn't go into low

Sometimes when I put it into low, it doesn't go in and when I give it gas it revs up a little, makes grinding like a car makes if you try to shift a manual without the clutch, then goes into gear and snatches. I have seen this with all makes and models of utvs. My buddies ranger does it in high and low and its only a few years old, a 2015 i think. Every one just seems to say its ok. But there must be something I can adjust for this. It seems to happen more often when warmed up and only does it when shifting into low. It feels like the shifter just needs to go a little further to the right.

thanks,
Travis

In life and racing, when in doubt, gas it.

ok, thanks. i found several videos showing how to do this. It looks pretty easy. They also mention checking the idle rpms and that it is probably set too high. I still have the electronics from racing karts so I can check the rpms pretty easily.
