    alright, i've fixed my sleds before but on all that i've owned this has never happined.
    i have a 1994 Arctic Cat Puma 340 F/c, and i was rideing the piss outta her and i pulled back into my cottage driveway and she just stopped moving, the motor was still running and i could rev it, but... no go,
    i've given it some thought, and i've come up with two possible explanations.

    1) clutch is not engaging, snapped / unsprung spring ???

    2)Seized Bearings in the rod going from the clutch to the brake, that turns the track ???

    i'm pretty positive that it's number two, because i put a jack under the ass end, and tried to urn the clutch attached to the rod, and she didn't budge, and i checked, the track was not touching the ground.

    Also, the mikuni carb is super tempermental,, pisses me off so much.

    Also, i had to buy my neighbour Mr. Berry, a new lock for his gate, because i came flying down the road to get to my cottage, and went to pull the brakes, and i had the lever to the bars and nothing happined.


    there is resistance in the brake line, but theres no bite in the pad, or the rotor, need to know where to find replacement of both pad and rotor.

    and if it's not too much trouble, my speedometer doesn't work, any ideas on how to fix this..

    thanks for you thoughts, answers, input, and help.
    Chris

    Yup its ur bearings... My bearings went at the same time my spedometer did.. Go figure... replace the driveshaft and jackshaft bearings! there should be 4. there about $30 each (well thats what i got them for) Its not that hard.. I can walk you through putting the driveshaft and the chaincase side jackshaft bearings... But i dunno how to put the clutch side jackshaft bearing in.

    You need to replace the little pin(s) to get your speedometer working... The pins are in each end where the speedometer cable connect to just pull them out.. one or both could be broken
