    Another question about RIO

    First I will ask my question then an observation. I read through the entire 17 page thread about the work arounds for the RIO switch. I have a brand new 2016 1025R and want to make this change. Problem is I can't seem to get to the switch without taking half the dash apart and I'm not inclined to go to that much disassembly to place a jumper. Is there any other way to accomplish this without taking half my new tractor apart? I know about the clothes pin and the under seat switch but I don't like those options.... Anybody got a suggestion?

    Now for my observation... I just spent the last couple of weeks reading all 647 pages of "what did you do with your SCUT Deere today" thread. I mostly skimmed through but I have learned a tremendous amount about how you all use your tractors and got several great ideas, thank you. I also learned that many of you have incredible properties with great views and amenities. I am greatful that there is this great resource for help and information. Looking forward to participating in this great online community.

    On older models you could jumper the sensor on the pedal linkage so it always thought it was in forward.

    Yea it's pretty easy. Take panel off that's right under seat. Need a 3mm I believe to take knob of and a 10mm and #3 Phillips to take kick panel off. Look for the switch in picture and take 2 zip ties and run it around sensor like pictured and tighten till it is fully depressed. This should work and it's easy to reverse

    This will disable the rio switch so you can mow in reverse.

    Hi All
    Another question my old 102 had a RIO My 1025r Had a RIO but my wife's Z235 does not have one RIO fitted. Does any one know why the different philosophy between the tractor style mowers and the Zero turn mowers?
    Regards John.

    I did this and it's very easy to do. The only problem I ran into was putting it back together make sure the diff lock rod is showing and not behind the cover. Other than that it's a 10 minute fix

    Here is how I bypassed the need for the RIO on my tractor. Quick, clean, easily reversible and no need to remove panels. This bypass also bypasses the seat switch safety. The only negative is the digital PTO speed indication in the dash will read out the PTO RPM as rear all the time. Not a problem for me since I always looks at the PTO RPM mark on the tachometer.
