Any Polaris ATV Experts Out There?

I have a 2008 Polaris 500 Sportsman that I bought used in 2012.  It's been great and I use it a lot around the property.  I've only had to buy a battery, gas, oil, and filters in the last 8 years. Something went wrong this summer and I hate to take it to the dealer in Indy ($$$) if I don't have to.  It starts and runs fine except when I go into reverse.  It will die after a few seconds but restarts right away only to die again when I try to move.  When this happens I see the speedo going crazy.  I find if I push the yellow "rev override" button on the left grip I can drive in reverse.   Has anyone seen this?

Thanks guys,
It's too late for me, save yourself.
