Thumbs up Before the warranty runs out

What other issues should I check before my warranty runs out?

Thanking you in advance, Dennis





Woodland just addressed hard shifting and secondary clutch adjustment being a way to correct it.

Another said doing a water intrusion check where the back of the clutch housing mates to the engine.

Other pearls of wisdom anyone?

I'd check wheel bearings, ball joints, tie rod ends and suspension bushings.

Doubt they'll do anything for clutch case leaks, but it's worth a try!

no warranty coverage for the clutch case leaking. it's above the "abuse" line an water above the foot wells is considered abuse in their eyes. But it's worth fixing yourself if you intend to go through water.

if there is something that doesn't seem right, start a warranty claim on it now. if it doesn't equate to anything now, but does in the future, it can some times be claimed under warranty if it had a claim started before warranty was up.

This is not necessarily true. Although I still doubt they would cover it under warranty. Mine and a couple others on here were so poorly sealed that they would suck splashed water into the housing from hitting normal small inch deep foot diameter puddles on the trail.

water + speed = splash that gets sucked into the clutch intake. Sealing the case won't stop that regardless. the clutch intake on the 570 is almost line of sight from the front left tire. When most people "seal the case" it's for water that leaks in through the joint in the clamshell (bad foam sealer) or through the shaft ports on the back of the clam shell (no seal installed) these really only ingest water when the water level is above the floor boards. and thus constituting as abuse in Polaris's eyes.

coming up with some sort of inner fender, to deflect water from the intake will stop that. I know some people have talked about using Frogskin over the intake to help prevent some of the water ingestion.

I have to believe that you are not totally comprehending what happens when the back cover is not sealed. As I said, the "splash" is what is getting into the clutch case, but it is not through the intake. I ride usually in a large group of people. Many of us ride 570's. We all hit the same puddles going the same speed while going down the trail. If it was simply splash entering through the intake we all would be stopped every 5 minutes emptying the clutch. This however is not the case. Mine may have been magnified by the fact that the zip tie was also missing on the inside, but that was not the entire problem. After I put the zip tie on, I put everything back together without putting any sealant on it, and filled the case through the intake with the hose. It still leaked out the back of the case profusely. If water can get out, water can and will get in. I pulled it back apart, sealed it up and have not had a drop in it since. Oh, and just to let you know, I went riding and hit (at high speed) every puddle on the trail I could find. Had water splashing over the front end on multiple occasions. Also drove through long flooded out sections of trail with water over the floorboards. Guess what...No leaky. So, where your idea of water coming in through the intake is possible and even probable in some cases, it would take a lot of splash back to cause belt slippage and the amount of water I was getting in my case. However, when that lower "seal" is not sealed, it allows any and all splash to be "sucked" in by the vacuum the clutch is creating, which in turn will very quickly cause your housing to fill up and your belt to slip.

there have been several posts on here of guys complaining of water ingestion caused by riding to fast through puddles on the 570 because of the way the intake for the clutch is set up. while your case is valid, it is not the only situation. It doesn't take that much water to get the clutch to slip. Speaking from experience. I've ingested water into the clutch by going to fast through puddles several times causing the clutch to slip. Never drained more than a table spoon of so of water out of it. as the incoming air goes right to the primary clutch. It's not just the 570 that can have this happen.

Now, in your situation, it would seem that sealing the back of the case was the only real problem solver, but I highly doubt that they would be willing to cover that under warranty, but that would depend on the dealer and how willing they are to work with you/fight for you.
