  1. Suspected clutch issue / grinding

    Commander General Discussion
    2017 Commander 1000 When shifting from park to high I have about a 15% chance of hearing a loud grinding noise. It sounds like the clutch is not engaging. This will not happen if I shift gears from park to low or low to high. When I shift it is from a stopped position and with the motor at...

    Commander General Discussion
    Just wondering if anyone has thought of a way to pump out the hot air in the CVT compartment? And, if it would help the belt life out? I was thinking it would be cool to not only pump the hot air out but maybe route it in a way that you could use the air as a heater??? You could attach...
  13. Blown Transmission

    Commander General Discussion
    UPDATE: NOT a Blown Transmission Just got back from a trip to Glamis, left early due to what I am assuming is a blown transmission. I was on my way to the drags from the washes and about 2-3 miles deep in the big dunes behind Olds when I heard a loud clunk and clatter of metal carnage. I...
  14. EPI Clutch Kit

    Commander Performance Modifications
    I installed the EPI duner kit for paddle tires. After installing it the first thing in noticed was it had a hard time engaging smooth. I figured it was the higher RPM engagement spring but I swapped that spring out for the white smaller spring and it does the same thing. So I took the severe...
