Was riding my Sportsman 500 4X4 HO out on the ice today and out of no where it stopped going anywhere. It is still running and the shifter moves between gears but it won't actually shift gears? Help please!!! :'(

Did the drive belt snap? Did you hear a big bang or anything?

I have never had it happen yet, but remove the belt housing and see how it looks. Or, maybe someone else will chime in. Good luck!

Or didnt feel it in the foot rest or against your ankle when it blew. Usually the belt lets you know with a good thump. Good live and learn experience, use low range if you already shreaded a belt.

Okay thanks and I already said that's what I thought it was but I hadn't looked at it and wanted other possibilities or opinions
