Reverse gear is not synchronized, and occasionally it will be hard to shift into reverse.

Try shifting first into 2nd or 1st gear to line up the gears then shift into reverse and it should go right in (you don't need to drive in these gears, just keep the clutch in and move the lever into 1st or 2nd to borrow those syncros and line everything up).

I also found it to be a less common problem after putting Amsoil Severe Gear in the front differential/transmission case.
