I have a 2000 Sportsman 335 4x4 and I am having transmission issues. When the machine is cold it will drive fine, but when warmed up it will not move and I start to smell burning rubber. Forward is basically totally out now and will only work in reverse. Would this be a clutch problem or possible transmission problem? Before I decide to go hands on I was hoping for some direction.

Sounds like it could be burning belt. But something is keeping the clutches from freely spinning.

Pull the CVT cover and have a look see. Im gonna say you have a couple issues going on...

Sounds like there is something wrong in the transmission. Either that or something's keeping the drive clutch from closing past a certain point. Take the clutch cover off, let it warm up and check what's happening.

Well, I believe the trans is in tact. I believe I have pin pointed the issue to the clutch. The drive pulley is working fine, but it seems the clutch is the problem. Any suggestions or ideas how I can remove the drive pulley if I don't have the recommended tool?
