Im no expert but i got back from riding last week and had a real weird vibration. I looked on this site and found that the belt might be bad. Ordered another one and installed it yesterday. Vibration gone. Just wanted to let you know. The vibration was not real bad but bad enough to be concerned. It started out when you were going slow but kind of went away once you went faster. Maybe this is your problem? Hope this helps.

to drain it you will have to take the cover off and when you do that inspect your belt, usauly just from driving them they dry out but there might be water still inside the cover. and if your belt is bad they give off a bad vibration feels like the machine is gonna fly apart. if its hourglassed from slipping it gives a slight vibe and this might be what your feeling too. look at the sides and see if there the same width. if you see a diffrence in one part from the other thats hour glass wear if your missing lugs thats the usaul its wear out. if you see any of this time for new belt. there about 75 bucks.

sounds right for aftermarket I was talking a polaris belt. no special tools you will have to pull the rear fenders and footrest out and there like a dozen or more torx head bolts that hold it on cant remember the exact size like a 25 0r 20. to get the belt off you gotta pull straight up real hard and you will see the clutch plates seperate and then you can spin off your belt when you get enough slack.

thats were the belt is at under that cover. and to get the water out if you got some in there you will have to take it off. if you can change the oil in your car you can change a belt. its not as hard as it looks, you gotta tear half the plastics off but once you do it its no big deal. well that is if you got the tools?
