Has it always done that? How many miles are on it. If there is lots, I would check over the clutches. On my xlt, the secondary clutch had some worn parts and thins happened, after replacing them, it was better.
the classic complaint....check to see where the belt is riding in the secondary clutch...it should ride 1-2 mm above the sheeve surfaces...polaris-man told me how to fix it. it is listed elsewhere on this forum or you can check your owners manual on how to adjust it. It cured my problem and now i have plenty of low end power
I have the exact same sled. I have the same problem too. This summer i put on pipes, and efi chip. i am also changing primary weights so who knows?? Where can i find out how to adjust the secondary clutch to the 1-2 mm belt height??
Belt deflection should only be 1 to 2 inches. If it has more than that the secoundary clutch needs to be adjusted. The newer clutches have three screws on the outside that can be loosened and a cam turned that lets the two halves move together. the older ones need to be taken apart and shim washers taken out or added to get the right belt deflection. If the belt is good and the clutches adjusted properly the hesitation should go away. If it doesn't I would suspect either bushings that are binding or clutch whts. that are binding and not allowing the clutch to work freely.
