Just over the weekend I was out riding and came to a big set of roots sticking out the ground. I attempted to go up and over in 2wd but only to lose traction and have the tires spin as they met with the roots and dirt. I stopped and then cliked the AWD button and then attempted again. I gave it gas and it revved up but the tires up front did not turn and the a huge cloud of smoke came from the front bottom of the atv. I manged to then get over but then a loud clicking sound began and was more evident as I turned.

Trying to do what I can before heading off to the dealer. Any suggestions? I was told to maybe check the diff. fluid level b/c maybe the fluid shot out of the vent hose and landed on the engine causing the white smoke.:mad:

Sounds like you were smoking the belt

The clicking could be a cv joint. Does it feel like the front end is "plowing"? and hard to steer?
