Reverse Problem

Ok everybody, I've spent a couple of days searching the web for anybody who has had the same problem that I have but none were exactly the same, so I need some help. Reverse does not work, the lever seems ok, it shuts off the neutral light but I never get the R light to come on so the starter/reverse switch will not engage the starter motor. I've checked all the things I read about but still have not tracked down the problem. Have swapped the relays, checked all the fuses, made sure it was locked in reverse by rocking it forward/backward, checked switch by the lever. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

You may need a 'Reverse Control Unit'.
Did you check the #1 & #2 Power Control Relays? They are located behind the right side saddlebag between the shock absorber and the battery.

Pretty sure I checked those, but will take another look to be certain. Thanks for the reply.
