Hi, :confused:

Just installed 27" Highlifter Outlaws on a 2002 Prairie 650 & now have a belt squeal under pressure.What is the best belt & clutch spring kit to buy to get the best out of the tires?

Many people with that set up like the EPI almond secondary and maroon primary. The Kawasaki OEM belt is the most durable.

Installed new belt,,& Almond secondary spring.Under pressure the belt squealed on front pulley.Had 1.6mm & .06mm Shims.Deflection was within specs.Removed .06 spring & belt squealed when in gear.Read thats good,but I dont like the noise.Installed .03mm shim,& still squeals if I hold front brake.Deflection around .12mm.

Would the maroon front spring help this?Front spring feels weak.

Take pics of groove and post. In fact, post a video so we can hear the squeal to better diagnose it. If your deflection is good, you might hear some squeal, and that is ok. You should not be hearing it in neutral however.

Will pull cover off when it cools up here.(91*).The drive belt is tight so you can hear a small squeal in neutral.Just riding you dont hear squeal.Try to climb a hill or take off hard :aargh: from a dead stop or pull something & belt squeals.The new belt I installed was #59011-0003.

Smoothed front drive pulley,but still hear squeal under pressure.

      My father-in-law gave my boy a 1999 350 Big Bear. It's been sitting in a barn for a bunch of years. It runs great! My boy has been riding a couple weeks now and it has developed a squeal coming from the front end when you get off the gas at speed. No noise during acceleration. At first I thought brakes. I took it for a ride and I don't think it is the brakes. I feel it is the front prop shaft U-joints, front differential or one/both axles. I pulled the fill plug on the differential and I can't find anywhere how much gear oil should be in there. My gut says up to the fill opening. It doesn't have a manual. It's wet in there, just don't see any gear oil.

      #1 Should I fill the differential with gear oil up to the fill opening?

      #2 How do I check or know if the u-joints are bad? That looks like a "Big Bear" of a job if they don't need to be replaced.

      #3 What else could it be? I don't think it is the front bearings. I jacked the front wheels off ground and no play in the right wheel. Very little play in the left wheel, looks like the lower control bushing is where that play is coming from. The rubber CV boots look original but all still intact. Wheels spin easily without any noise.

      Thanks for any help!

      Hi guys im new to the forum and i hope i put this in the right spot. But im putting this up for my uncle. But he has a 2002 Bombardier quest rotax 650 4x4 All wheel drive. Now i was driving it down the road today and all sudden it shut down i thought it ran out of gas but it didnt. After it shut downi pushed it to the side of the road and tried to crank it over but it wont crank over. It is a electric start none of the lights or anything work So what i was thinking its in the wiring somewhere right? Does any one have a website that has a wiring diagram for this 4 wheeler or does any one know what else it can be? If anyone has any idea please let me know everything willprobley help thanks guys!!!

      Working on a 2002 Quest 500 and the grommets in the tank are rock hard and leak.  Any tips on replacing without having to pull the tank, hands are too big to get to the bottom gromment which is the worst one.

      Hello! This is my first bike with a cvt it's a 19 Outlander 850 xmr. I use the 30" cryptid tires that come with the bike during hunting season since I hunt in a louisiana swamp and I have some 27" interco reptiles during the summer trail rides. So this past hunting season I got stuck and squealed the belt do i looking at cluch kits /adjustments to help with the low end but I dont want to mess with my summer riding so I'm looking for advice

      1987 YFM350FWTB 350 4x4 Big Bear when going uphill will sometimes act like the clutch realeases then re-engauge all at once.
      Seems to maybe be little more often if the engine is at about 1/2 throttle instead of at lower rpms.
      I have the Factory Service manual and checked the external clutch adjustment screw as ok and the H/L/reverse shifter lever linkage as adjusted correctly. It appears to be maybe a internal (inside the case) clutch issue or ??
      This is the type Big Bear that has the manual shift lever on the left front fender and has the manual foot shifter lever with 5 speeds forward.
      Can someone tell me how the primary and secondary clutch operates? 
      I assume one is mechanical and one is centrifugal. (what I'm asking is one clutch for the higher rpms and one for the lower rpms or ???. (the clutch appears to only momentarily release at the higher rpms is why I ask. The cycle has about 3000 miles of low speed through the brush hunting and has been well maintained, oil changed, etc and no deep water or mud useage.
      Anyone been into a similar issue with the big Bear ATV????

      i have a 2001 suzuki quadmaster 500 4x4 that the primary cvt clutch is rusted on any ideas on how to get it off i want to try to reuse it if possible.

      Recently started shifting hard from neutral to first causing it to stall. I'm able to lift up on the shifter and throttle up and slowly let off the shifter, like driving a standard. That is the only way to get it In gear and stay running. Also if I come to a stop and keep it in gear it wants to continue moving, eventually stalling out. I don't have much experience with the bottom end or clutches. I just now replaced friction and steel plates and that made no difference. Don't know what to do now.

      I just bought a Yamaha Big Bear 350 from 1992. The previous owner has run it on regular engine oil and I have problems with the clutch slipping. I think that's the reason.
      So what should I do?
      - Just change oil and it will be OK?
      - Clean engine/clutch + new oil?
      - Or do I need a new clutch?

      It is guessing the centrifugal clutch that slips. It has two clutches , it also has a "regular" clutch .
      Anyone who has any experience of using wrong type of oil?
