The question is what is bad, the belt or tranny. I will leave this one to the 4x4 guys.

Aha...for some reaosn I thought the question was it belt driven.

Now, from personal experience, when you have belt slippage or issues, low end will not work.

Are we talk pulling a load,such as a trailer, log, and etc?:confused: Weight of the load?:confused:Or are calling the ATV your load?:confused:

We just want to make sure you get the proper answer. So could you give us some more information , PLEASE!

Does it try to move in high? Do you smell burnt rubber on the attempt?  If so I would say belt

      My lakota has a new carb and just had a top end redone by a professional, but it will not start. The electric start turns it over great, there seems to be compression. It seems like its trying to start, getting right there and just doesnt catch. It does start occasionally, but wont run for more than a couple of minutes and smells rich. Im assuming the carb needs to be tuned, but im just wondering if anyone else has any ideas before i get a chance to work on it.
       
      Thanks

      I have been working on a 2004 arctic cat 400 that will run for a while with a new coil installed then after a few min start sputtering and quit. Checking the coil afterward it it is burned up. There is 350 Plus volts going to the coil and I'm not sure if I need a CDI or its something else? Flywheel magnets have been ruled out!

      i know this isnt an atv but same type of thing.  I have a riding mower im fixing and selling for my aunt and it has a dead battery.  i jumped it off my atv and when i turn the key nothing at all happens.  i tried jumping the relay still nothing.  this is with the seat down.  you wouldnt think this mower would have issues as its a top-of-the-line brand and almost brand new (aunt found it for a good price, still got tits on tires, just sat for a couple months in a mechanic shop

      I have a 1999 Sportsman  500, it was running fine, than started to lose power in the winter, I adjusted the idle screw and away I went, than a few weeks ago it died, I have found that i am flooding the engine, compression was at 70PSI and due to the compression release mech. i assume i am good as it compared to the same PSI on a 2000 sportsman 500 i have. i cannot start the atv unless i go full throttle and it starts an runs for about 30 sec than dies, again it is flooded. i ordered a new carb off ebay as i could get one for around $40. put that in same issue, i have checked the timing, (good), valves out of adjustment i adjusted to .006 still same issue, i have found the exhaust lobe and rocker arm to have some wear, i have ordered new ones, but am looking for any other input in this area as well. would the exhaust cam and rocker arm cause the engine to flood? i have used a bore scope and the piston liner has good cross hatching still? any input would be great.
