I would go with a clutch problem. It is very unlikely that it is broken gears. clutches are the weakest point on any clutch applied system.

Agreed, if the belt sheaves are grabbing and moving the belt properly, then the next possible problem is definately the drive clutch. I would tear down to the clutch and check the clutch shoe and the small one way clutch that is between the clutch housing and clutch shoe. Make sure all moving parts are moving freely and check for excessive wear on any clutch components. One question, have you tried putting the machine into 4wd and seeing of the front drive system will move the quad?

Hey @Jasmine May Cox welcome to Quadcrazy.  What make, year and model is then machine ? I would start a new topic in the forum section so it’s easier to stay on your topic. Sounds like a belt issue to me though.

Agreed, we need more information about the machine before we can make suggestions.

      My son’s 17 Alterra 500 just quit today. It was running fine the started stalling and bogging at half throttle. It finally stalled and will not start. The bike was won in a raffle last year. It had sat for a year before he won it. Has ridden it very little since.  It has 180 km on it. We checked  the plug spark seems strong  disconnected the fuel line at the pump and the fuel pump is working well.  Disconnected the injector and it is spraying fuel.  Air filter is clean and there are no mouse nests in the air intake.  Al fuses checked and good. Ideas?

      I own a 2002 Can-Am Quest 650.
      It will start if you massage the throttle a bit and it will continue to run. BUT if you let go of the throttle and try to let it idle it will always die warm or cold.
      It has Non-Oxy premium gas, a new gapped NGK plug, a new carb (as of today) and fresh fluids. After installing the new carb it runs exactly the same.
       
      I only have a few things that I have observed since the new carb:
      The choke still doesn't do anything. It has a good cable and it is hooked up. It on fully off. There is a cable in the top, front of the engine that splits into two connectors. The connected side is in the photo. The other side has the yellow banded section and is not connected. I do not see anything in range of this connector so I don't know if this is normal or not??? The original carb wasn't really dirty or clogged. I'll use it as a spare. I don't see this cable and connectors listed in the Can-Am shop manual. Looking for some help. I want to ride!
