Question about 2001 Yamaha Royal Star XVZ 1300 A
How to install a reverse gear on a Yamaha XVZ1300 shaft drive motorcycle
Sorry, but the crankcase in the Royal Star has no room for the additional gearset that would reverse the rotation of the output shaft. If it's absolutely necessary that your motorcycle has a reverse gear, you might consider one of the newer Goldwings.

It is not economically feasible to put a reverse gear on a motorcycle that was not designed for it. As an example, the Yamaha ATV's that have reverse have 5 different transmission shafts compared to the ATV's that don't have reverse having 2 shafts. This means the engine cases would have to be re-engineered to hold the additional shafts to be able to reverse the direction of rotation of the engine and have it go through the same output shaft. For the record, the Honda Goldwing with reverse uses the electric starter motor for reverse, not the engine.
