I took my viking out for its first ride last weekend and I noticed that a lot of the time going from neutral to reverse or neutral to drive I really had to put some muscle in it to get it to shift. Is this normal? As far as operation goes everything was normal but there were times when I really had to yank on the lever to get it to go into the gear I wanted. Also there were a few times when it was in the neutral position but the gauge wouldn't display any gear and it wouldn't start when i turned the key until I moved it up a gear then back down. I was hitting some heavy water/mud and don't know if that would have effected anything but she's only got a couple of miles on her and was expecting better from such an expensive machine.
