Hello everyone. I am not sure what is happening but the other day my Son took our 1996 ATV Polaris Sport out and said as he was climbing a small hill the bike "slipped out of gear" so he thought. So he put it back in drive and gave it gas and nothing happened. So he pushed it back home. I took off the cover plate to see if the belt had busted and it looked in tact. So I took a video of what was happening once I put the bike in drive and gave it gas. Please take a look -->

I would greatly appreciate any help you could give me on what may be going on and what I can do to fix it. Thank you so much and I look forward to your response.

Clutches seem to be working right, if it wont move must be broken chain, stripped sprocket or something broken in tranny, I would get wheels off the ground and see where things quit turning, start at sprocket coming out of tranny on the right side.

Please take a look --> 1996 Polaris Sport clutch or belt not engaging when I put it in drive and give it gas - YouTube

+1 on what others have mentioned to check for. I'd bet its the chain.

Ok so I am thinking it's the transmission after all. I put it up on a block, gave it some gas and the back wheels didn't turn at all. So I turned it off and made this video that shows you what happens when I put it in drive and turn the back wheels. -

Thank you for your help!

Its probably the chain or gear INSIDE your transmission.
