Clutch Help Please

I was fortunate enought to go on the ORW Baja trip. Let me tell you, it was one of the best trips I have been on. Unfortunately for me, I snapped my drive belt and didn't have a spare. When I got back I bought a new Yamaha belt and put it on. Since then it has only gone on and off the trailer a few times. I noticed the last time I put it on the trailer I was getting the noise similar to the rear brake grind. It also feel like the parking brake is on all the time. I finally had some time today to check it out. I had it in neutral and it pushes around without making any noise. I started it up and no noise. I put it in gear, stepped on the gas and got the noise. I put it back in neutral to get out and check the rear diff and brake. I inadvertantly stepped on the gas, and there is the noise. There is a definate grinding comig from the clutch housing. I have the Rhino Crap Sheave and have never had a problem. I am going to pull it apart tonight when it cools off a bit to see what is going on.

Does anybody have any ideas/suggestions?

Thanks in advance

sound like maybe a roller is out of position, from breaking the belt.

Check that out and get back to us, we can help.

That was going to be my guess too. When I replaced the belt I dissasebled the sheave and re-greased the rollers. I was very careful on re-asssembly, but you never know. I will let you know what I find.

i have a ? about the wights when i frist did mine they had heavy 16 or 18g. i cant remember but the frist trip out the rhino ran better than ever. step on the gas and the rear would come out and pitch sideways and it was fast. 2 trip out slow and no power??now i think all is good but i think ill try what rog said and go all 14g

THERE IS ALWAYS SOMEONE FASTER

BUT ONLY A FEW CAN FLY
