Question 2000 Clutch Belt Replacement

My 2000 creeps forward in gear and reverse. Everything that I have read here on the forums suggest that it is a worn clutch belt. Does anyone have instructions or "How To" directions on how to get to the belt and replace it??

Thanks in advance..

i have the same problem. and i have just put a new belt on and it does the same jumping i think that it might be due to a high idle try decreasing the idle.

Remove the footwell
Loosen the vent hose
Remove the screws on the cover and remove the cover.
Take the top of the belt and work a bit of it over the secondary clutch. (Make sure it's in neutral)
Rotate the clutch backwards (clockwise) until it comes off.
Put new belt around primary clutch and start it on the top of the secondary clutch.
Rotate again in the same direction unti it pops into the clutch.
Replace cover, vent hose and footwell.


Your idling rpms might also be a little too high and causing the clutch to engage when it shouldn't.

My clutch belt is rubbing against the plastic clutch cover, any ideas on how to fix this problem? the Polaris I have is a 2000, 400 scrambler, two stroke.

I've seen this video, but the primary clutch is rubbing on the back part of the clutch case. How do I fix this new problem?

I find this happens when you get stuck or pull some one else out who is stuck. The cover gets melted and rubs. Time for a new cover.

The usual causes for this are wrong belt, bad belt, broken motor mount, mis-aligned clutches, or broken parts in the clutches.
