I have a 2002 Sportsman 700 and recently replaced the belt on it with a oem polaris belt. It now moves when idling (idle speed is normal, not high) and also sometimes will not shift gears. Will go into gear from park no problem, but wont change after moving. However when I turn the machine off it shifts smoothly into every gear. It seems the new belt is too tight causing it to creep. What could be the cause of this and how do I fix it? Is there a way to loosen the tension on the belt? Also, the belt sticks up above the top of the secondary clutch. Its like the two plates of the clutch are squeezing too tightly on the belt. Is this normal?
