I've searched this a little, but haven't found a definitive answer.

Machine is basically brand new, just had the 20 hr service done at the dealer, also had them adjust the shift cable. It helped but didn't solve the problem.

Occasionally, after it's in low, I'll get on it and it will pop back out. I feel like the gate for low isn't designed correctly. I saw a post where a guy clearanced the gate further back.

I have an x. It did the same thing. It eventually would not even go into low at all. Would just sit and grind. It’s in the shop now and I will post what they did to fix it.

I really hope honda issues a recall shift gate. There is a lot of people with the same issue. Also a lot of people who say "oh, you need to shift into low, watch the dash, and wiggle the shifter back and forth to make sure it's in gear"

Are you kidding me? If it's the low gate, it should be in low.

I thought about making a new gate out of some aluminum or uhmw, but I didn't want the dealer to not cover the transmission under warranty because I modified something.

They can be quite sticky with add ons for sure. There is a shift gate available already that will shift hi to rev, or low to rev easily but that seems problematic to me.
