I asked the Pasadena Tx. dealer about tightening my belt and he said it was not adjustable. I told him I've seen discussion of using shims on ATV forums and he ademantly stated it could not be done. He suggested if your going to that much trouble... replace the belt. Anybody know if it can be adjusted???? Maybe I'll email beartooth. Later :mrgreen:
I had to return it to the dealer to get the belt tightened or replaced. Because it is still under warranty I returned it to my dealer. When they tried to remove the Clutch! It would not come off and had to air chisel it off from the machine, well it has now been 3 1/2 weeks and they still waiting on a new clutch, how long should this take?
I have a service manual and seen how to do the work, bought a clutch puller and tried, no go!!!!!
Air chisel!!! No way I could be without mine for 3 weeks. I use it or play on it every day. First thing out of my sons mouth when I get home... "Dad can we ride the 4wheeler"? I've got almost 100 hours on mine. No slipping, no noise. Pull trailers, eat mud and general hard riding. Air chisel!!! Not looking forward to replacing or adjusting. Homemade tools??? Sounds like your Kawa dealer could use Joey's homemade tools. Later.
Does the service manual have instructions for shimming the belt?? I don't have one yet as they are hard to find for the 04's. I like to do my own work and am planning to get one when I can find one. Even if I screw it up the first time, I learn something and save money at the same time. Later.
Great, I appreciate the offer of help from your manual. I've heard of the site you mentioned, but can't hit personal websites from work and haven't surfed for it at home yet. Fortunately nothing has broken yet. Had to weld up the Yerf Dog last night due to my son (9yrs.) jumping the elevated driveway, but my 360 takes it smooth as silk. I think my bumper actually cracks a smile when I jump it. I know I do. Thanks again for the help.
