First off, welcome back to the site. Second, am I correct that there is only one belt, or is there one belt for high and one for low. If there is one for both I would say it's your tranny. Not familiar with that set up, just trying to help.

I bought it new. We went riding and everything was fine. Took it out again a month later. Took it off the trailer and rode down a hill. Tried to come back up the hill and it wouldnt pull up the hill. The bike has been serviced only once because I drive it very little.

I'm guessing it is your tranny or more specific the gear inside that engages your high gear. When you have it in high and rev it, what does it do?

i had a similar problem that my dealer told me the reason... wen u switch from neutral to high there is a fork that in gauges the gear. if i remember correctly.. and it just might not be in gauging until u hit low... the same problem happened because my rpms were to high so i couldn't get it in gear.... i don't think it is as serious as ur transmission being bad i think it just might need some adjusting..

i thought my exuast pipe had just fallen off but now i need a new gasket:skeptic:

Did it fall off at the head? or at the silencer? The head being the part that directly bolts to the motor. The silencer is the part under your rear fender.

at the silencer, i didnt notice it so it squised the gasket and the whoole thing almost fell off, we had to make a gasket so my dad made one out of a gasket from his car, now we should get a real gasket, it came without one when we bought it. (wonder why:mad:)

There is no gasket between the head pipe and the mid pipe. The mid pipe is the piece that comes off the silencer. It should just overlap the head pipe. Usually held on by springs or some kind of clamp.

no the bolt that held the silencer on fell off so i was hanging with the whole pipe which loosened the head up and so we need a new gasket

I get it! That sucks. Make sure the bolt that came out of the mount has a grommet around it. This will reduce vibration. Any bolt you put back on, use the blue lock tight on the threads.

we put the muffler back on and we put a lock washer, two lock nuts on to keep the first one from backing off and we put lock tight on the threads so i think were good

That's exactly what I meant by grommet.

Easy there old man. I was making sure the kids knew what a grommet is. We know you and I can do some jimmy rigging. I actually fixed my exhaust pipe in the middle of the Mexican desert with a hack saw and a piece of chain link fence. The metal tube frame, not the links.

I had a major case of back pressure or something, I blew my mid pipe out. It split right down the middle. So we cut the fence apart at the top where the vertical bar does a 90 degree turn to become the horizontal bar. It got me back with out going deaf.

      My 1997 Beg Bear got stuck in 2nd Gear when parked on slight hill, otherwise in perfect shape. Trying to get it into neutral, by rocking it back and forth won't release out of gear.
      Any suggestions, It's my work horse and I keep it in to shape, got to get it running..

      I am looking to see why my 2005 Grizzly  660 won't crank. I have set the valves but suspect a loose timing chain.
      When working to remove the valve cover I found a "cap tensioner case" - parts #25  - #299 on Babbitts site.
      The  cover seems to bridge the valve cover and the cylinder head. What the hell is it and what surprises will I  find if I remove it?
      Uncharted territory for me.

      What weight gear oil for this machine?
      80w90?
    • By Belmontie
      Hi bought this quad with a few leaks and other issues which thanks to excellent advice from these forums I thought I’d sorted them till I washed it down and found oil underneath. 
      It is coming from the seal around the gear changer pedal as it looks like someone has banged the housing flat on one side. Knowing how easily aluminium is broken I don’t wanna risk tapping it back into shape. Would a new seal fit or would the distortion of the housing render it useless.
      thanks in advance

      Smells like gas in the oil ... Also, recently replaced belt, new BT does not have grooves on both sides, does that pose a problem?  Also just bought and replaced new carburetor, never has it idled better, but give it gas and it backfires very loudly!

      Just bought a 2003 Kodiak 450.At take off,the belt doesnt grab for a few seconds.Is there any wat to tighten belt?& how tight should it be?

      Took my wolvy for her first trail ride past weekend. Got home and cleaned all the mud and dirt off. Went to take a spin around the neighborhood and started having issues.
      When you are about 1/2 to 3/4 throttle the RPMs will sudden spike way up with little difference in power to the machine. Once you shift to the next gear it will increase power/rpm consistently then same thing happens and you get a sudden RPM spike. It also seems to recreate the problem if you are low in the gear and try to punch it...High rpm with no power increase. If you shift gears and gradually increase throttle she will increase power and RPMs consistently but if you shift and are more than 1/2 throttle it will increase power and RPMs fine until you get about 1/2 to 3/4 way through the gear then you get the same RPM spike...
      Hope I am explaining this clearly. My truck did a similar thing once and it turned out to be a whole new tranny...hope this is a different issue. Thanks for your help guys and gals.

      Ok i got a 1991 polaris trail boss 350 i bought from my neighbor and he didn't know what was wrong with it here the piston skirt broke off and dropped in the bottom end i ripped motor out and ripped it apart to get the pieces out and everything looks good so i put it back together it needed a key so i bought a new one well it didn't work so i bought one off a junk wheeler and it worked but wont shut it off i revs up so what could be causing this.
