Hey DB. It could be one of a hundred things. Take the clutch cover off and inspect inside. It could be as simple as a wrong belt, weights busted/sticking, or a worn spring. You can't really tell without looking inside.i recently picked up a 99 sportsman 335 and the clutch belt keeps engaging at idle. my idle is really low so im pretty sure thats not the problem, any ideas ?
:hmmm: :thinking: That's weird.Hey bgirard,
i bought a brand new pure polaris belt from my local dealer, threw it on and the problem persisted so i know the belt is ok and i havent looked at the weights too closley but last time i had it open i game them a really fast once over and they looked okay. Also when its idleing the clutch doesnt move in at all, the belt just grips the clutch for some reason.
Thanks so much,
Measuring belt deflection is easy. Take a straight edge and lay it across the top of the belt, it should go from the center bolt on the primary to the center bolt on the secondary.iv had it for about 2 months now and i first noticed the creeping about a week after i got, and ill play around with the shims when i get back, and iv read about deflection but i don't know how to measure it :sad:
