How does the belt appear, is it worn evenly, or mostly on one side?
Are the sheave faces clean?

with a new belt on take the sled for a short drive, then feel the belt, is it hot? if not drive more check again.

how are the rpms of the sled? if you were stopped, then puched it would it climb to 100 on the speedo?

I hear a click out of my primary sometimes. My clutch works though. The clutches could use a cleaning and checking. You should start with the secondary, because that is only one bolt to remove.

Check the preload on your secondary. I had a '96 mxz that was assembled by some dipshit (me) and it wasn't preloaded. By, by belt.

Madcow 02-17-2009 07:20 PM

the secondary is where i would start, take it off and have it checked out.

how do you set preload on the secondary??? ok will see what happens should be interesting

The end plate has to be turned as it is installed so that the buttons/rollers engage the helix ramps before locking down.

can you with the belt off grab one side of the secondary in each hand and feel heavy spring resistance rotating one side one way? will return to stop freely? when you have it rotated can you slide one side in and out freely?
