Well, I was dragging at the sand dunes this weekend testing out my recent mods and was very impressed with my current setup!

However, I let my brother-n-law try it out. On his second pass, when he went to take off the bike had nothing.
It seems to be shifting through gears ok, but the front sprocket never moves. I have tried every gear and reverse; and nothing...
The engine revs up and sounds fine. There is no funny noises like a stripped gear either. It is almost like the clutch is stuck and won't release?

Anyone seen this before and have any ideas of what it might be? I will be converting the bike back to stock and taking it to the dealer. Should be covered under 6 month warranty.

You were right king, it was the clutch. They said it was burned till it was blue.

They said that it had to be happening over time. I explained to them that it never slipped at all, then all at once it quit. After a little persuasion, they covered it all under warranty. :thumbsup:

Just curious here and I don't want to start the great oil debate but...What oil have you been using and how often have you changed it?

Also does your clutch lever have any free play in it? How many hours do you have on te quad?
