possible wrong size belt if the motor did not increase rpm. or the belt deflection is off, but thats assuming everything is A-OK with the throttle cable.

is it your fusion? my dads 06 600 had a bad throttle cable junction box i believe, the throttle would not close completely dude to a frayed cable.

blet deflection is the measurment taken if u put a straight edge ontop of your belt while its on the machine, put prressure on the center point of the belt between your primary and driven clutch, most common for polaris is roughly 1.25 inches.

to adjust, loosen the 7/16-inch jam nut on the secondary clutch. this adjusts the width of the sheaves. grab a 1/8-inch allen wrench and turn the set screw clockwise to increase the distance between the sheaves, and counter-clockwise to decrease distance between the two.

if belt deflection is the case, you need to tight the set screw to increase the gap between the sheaves. use a tape or a ruler to judge how far you have moved them, tighten the jam nut and see if that does anything for you.

lol not those. you are pointing at the pins that hold the weights in the primary clutch.

look at your other clutch, there is a treaded stud on the side of it. with a little gold nut.

well just loosen the gold nut, then you wanna turn the allen head stud in, clockwise like you are trying to tighten a bolt. but like i said before, dont just start turning it. you have to watch the sheaves you can see them move apart when you do this. im thinking 1 or 2 full turns tops. then tighten the jam nut and start the sled, see if that helps out.

7/16-inch wrench and a 1/8-inch allen wrench is all you need for tools. and a long straight edge to measure the deflection like i instructed earlier.

Wait wait wait, I can't exactly tell in your image but if the nut is moving on the threads thats exactly what it's supposed to do. You adjust the threads with an allen wrench, and use the nut to lock it in position. (Not a very clear image)

If its actually broken off inside of there, try to get the rest of it out, then you're going to need to take a trip to the dealer and hope they have one in stock or order it.

Its not actually a bolt, simply a threaded set screw, with a lock nut. With a little luck I think you could get an allen wrench in there and wind the rest of it out.

Time to get the drill out and get that bolt out of there. I'd bring it to someone who knows what they're doing so you dont end up replacing a secondary clutch.

And bmxican, I'm not sure why, but someone went through and gave you all -1's in every one of your posts on this topic so I went through and bumped it up. Not sure why people who disagree are to scared to post that they do. Lets hear everyones opinion if you have one, or just dont bother hitting the -.
