You need to cut into a power wire, Either to the control box or to the motor, then you add a small value, high wattage resistor in series. This lowers the voltage to the motor.

The lower voltage means the motor generates less torque

The disadvantage is that it may draw more current and that can do damage

Got the idea when I'd accidently disconnected the batteries and ran it in with low voltage.. VERY SLOWLY

I see Power Gear has a procedure for "Adjusting the amprage" on some controllers... Wish I knew where the controller was.

The "shear pin" is put there in case of binding, when it breaks it saves you money. (gears, shafts, chains, etc) Not a good idea to bypass the design.
Find the real problem and correct it.

Power Gear web site has several downloads of PDF's for troubleshooting and adjusting. I had similar problem and will attach one of the PDF's that might be helpful.
