Frank Congratulations on your swap. So far on what I read to clear the Maintenance light only can be clear by a dealer with the laptop. On my CVT I picked up sum universe air cleaner 90's from Pepboys and a 10" Shot vacuum extention to pipe the hot out the back of the Rhino. Still the CVT was getting to hot so I did what Maxpower recommend and cut the bottom of the CVT in half works great now no problems in the dunes. The shift I did a little different I cut the stock shifter and flipped it 180 and welded it back on a have way less parts to adjust because it's now on the same side as the Rotax tranny, then the way Jay does it.

Yeah sorry, I didn't want to disturb you while you were in the safety meeting. I knew it was a long shot at finding that diff coupler. I got a new one from Yamaha to yesterday. I'll be ready for New Years. I take some pics asap.

I know that's the size for the bolt that screws into the Rotax through shaft, I need the size of socket for the Yamaha's diff to remove that coupler I it's pretty big like a 24mm or something?
