tonight i started the sled up and gave it some throttle, the track engaged and was moving forward and i heard a pop, now the track is seized up, (clutch not attached to the motor) secondary? will spin but the track isnt moving, it tightens up but wont go. when the motor is off i can hand turn the secondary and every thing moves fine.


any ideas would be appreciated

If when the motor is off you can spin the secondary and the track spins I have not a clue. However, if none of that is true, then you broke your chain.

A chain will never just fall off.

So when you give it throttle, the track tensions up, like its trying to spin?

The brake didn't grab for some reason did it?
Does everything seem normal with the primary and secondary drives?
It just seems strange that you can move the secondary and track by hand but not when engine power is applied.

If you can spin it by hand, something might be hung up or stuck in your primary. Turning it by hand eliminates problems in the rest of the drivetrain.

So a TY memeber called me and talked me through it, it ended up being the rollers and weights,.

One roller had a flat side, weights had signs of wear, as did the other 2 rollers.

Primary springs fine but gonna throw in a new one as long as i have everything apart anyway

What or who is a "TY member"?...

Thumbs up to the TY member for nailing it for you though.

I think your doing the right thing by replacing all of those clutch components. Way to stick with it!

Ain't that Totally Yamaha? I kind of figured it was a hung-up weight in the primary. That's kind of what my sled did when I put some ATV weights in the clutch unknowingly. The ATV weights fit until the clutch tried to close, then they hung up so the clutch wouldn't engage.
