sportsman still slipping with new belt

Put a new belt on (Dayco) but it still slips badly. Do I need a new clutch?

maybe the spring on your clutch is wearing out?

what do you think the reason is? is the belt feel lose, or is it pretty tight on the clutches?

have you ran the quad in neutral with the clutch cover off to watch the primary to see how it acts?

do you know what clutch it might be slipping on?

thanks for the replys, it is slipping on the primary drive clutch. The belt seems fairly tight on the clutches. I've ridden it around the yard with the cover off and witched it slip when I stopped and tried to go again on a moderate incline. The primary clutch does have a slight groove where the belt rides. My wife and I used to ride it together and I guess I was in high gear too much when I shouldn't have been.

I had the same problem. I took it in and the drive clutch was worn bretty bas, they replaced the drive clutch and a new belt. It's still slipping, mainly in high if there is any load,i never had the problem before the clutch got replaced. I found out about the problems when i took it in for annual maintenance. Am i able to tighten the belt myself?

grooves are not good. that might be the issue. it needs to be perfectly smooth

its not too hard, imi just havent done it myself so im not really able to walk you through it, but our mechanics could do it in about 30mins or so with mininmal tools. i believe its the secondary that slides forward or back

the secondary was the one with the groves that got replaced. when i got it home, it wasn't long before i noticed at about 30 mph in high she would start to slip, but as the belt got warm it seemed to stick, i think it just needs to be tightened a little. Thanks for the info.

Do a quick search on U TUBE. There are a number of good short videos on servicing the CVT clutches and changing out the belt.

MUCH better and any wordy explanation one could provide here.
