Linkage rod binding from misallignment?
Tranny just in a "spot" because bike is sitting and off? Try moving tire a bit?
Rebound is in tranny not rearsets so they have to be binding somewhere.

Sarah Palin and friends can call it a snow machine all they want but Yamaha, Polaris and Bombardier plus the related magazines all seem to call them Snowmobiles.

Snow machines create snow on ski slopes. Just sayin'

I don't really like you but I will help . Miami is correct you need to adjust the shift linkage some, there is a very small margine that it needs to be adjusted within for it to work right without binding. What brake light switch did you get? Is it the pressure switch that screws into the master cylinder in place of the stock banjo bolt? If so you just need to replace the banjo bolt with the switch and plug it up to the stock rear brake light plug (just follow the wire and you will find the plug).

:EDIT: Be patient when adjusting the linkage it will take a little time, it took me about and hour of adjusting before I found the sweet spot for it.

Mine didn't return as well as I wanted either so I used a spring to help it return. I believe the stock rearsets have an external spring also. The reason I didn't try to adjust mine is the quckshifter linkage limited the adjustment range due to clearance issues. My setup is a little "Jethro" but it will work untill I come up with a more sano solution.

Going through life with blinders on and lovin' it.
