ATV won’t move except in 4 wheel drive

Recommended Posts

I have a 2009 Artic cat 700 4 Wheeler and it will not move except in 4 wheel drive. Any ideas? 

 

Thank you, Mary

What happens when you try in 2wd mode? does it feel like it wants to move or do anything?

Look down at the rear driveshaft, is it turning?

. It is either  splines have worn out on the  pinion shaft,or possibly  between the  crown  gear  and output to the axles. . When  you  have it in 2WD,  the rear differential is what moves your  machine . The reason  it moves in 4x4 is because the front differential   is pulling the  machine along. You'll  have to  take the  rear drive apart to  find  just what  is gone .

      Hi, I’m new to the forum. I have a large trailer, about 7500 lbs loaded, that I need to move around in my driveway. I was planning to buy a motorized trailer dolly, but it occurred to me that perhaps and ATV could do it, and then I could not only move the trailer but also have the ATV for the fun of it!
      I’m wondering if anyone knows if an ATV can move a trailer this size? The tongue weight is about 750 lbs, and I’d only be moving it very slowly in a small space on almost level concrete and gravel.

      Exploiting a loop hole in the law, turn 4 wheeler into rev trike
      for a long while I have been trying to get a real 4 wheeler street legal.
      the problem is with the state laws, if it has 4 wheels, its a car and has mega more rules.
      If it only has 3 wheels, its a trike and can be made from cobbled junk parts held together with duct tape and they will plate it
      I wonder if anyone would have insight on changing a 4 wheeler over to a single rear wheel?
      [ I can't afford some $40-60,000 canam or super bike modded into a car, rev trike kit ]
      I want something I can truly ride year round on and off road. Ive rode enough old Honda 3 wheelers that I know I do not want a traditional motorcycle trike. So the single wheel has to go out back.
