Hey guys just did my tie rods 2nite and everything went well. On the test drive I stopped in a field and reversed to look at something. As I put it back in high it sounded like my belt was clicking fairly loud. I actually thought I snapped it. Went from park to high same thing. One more time taking it easy and it started to move. Basically limped it home. Penny for your thoughts?

Oneway bearing is probably bad. If secondary is turning any at all at idle it will grind going into gear .

Uatv-tech.com has the best oneway bearings and tool kits available. And they are better quality and cheaper than factory .

Ok so to check that would i just pull the cover and let it run at idle and see if the secondary is turning? Where is the one way bearing located?

Ok. Only had the machine 10days and I've got 100 miles on it. First time I heard that noise. Is replacing one way bearing a hard job? Will it do any more damage to drive it for a couple more days? Thanks for the advice

Time consuming to get the cover off but easy to change once in there . Got video on YouTube pretty detailed on clutch

When you hear a belt start slapping they are normally just at the point of exploding. So if your still running it I would say it gear grind.

Good video. I will def look those parts up 2moro. The tool kit would be handy too. Other wise doesn't look like too bad of a job. Thanks ace.
