Welcome to the forum!

Yes, it's the reverse rev limiter - I assume if you know what it is you also know how to fix it? if not, read "Most Common Raptor 660 Problems" at the top of this section (a sticky).

Yamaha added it towards the end of the first year of production - I suspect they got sued (or at least threatened) by a few early owners that hurt themselves while running flat out in reverse.
