2014 Polaris Ranger 900XP

Buddy has a problem that someone could help with. He has blown 2 belts and he just replaced his clutch. It is hard to get it in gear now. The engine idle is at aprox. 1260 rpm which should be normal. Just wondering if anyone has an idea of what we could do to fix this problem? Any advise would be helpful. Thanks in advance.

Is his clutch alignment good? Which clutch did he replace primary or secondary? Primary has a one way bearing on it to let it sit in idle neutral without burning belt. He should fire it up and run it with covers off see if he can see something wierd. Also if belt is burning on clutch you'll see marks on clutch. Did he replace whole clutch of transfer his parts to new clutch? More info if you got.

When you say it is hard to get in gear, do you mean it doesn't feel like the machine "clicks" into gear, or the shift lever is hard to move?

We will check on the clutch alignment. I'll check on the parts that he replaced on Monday. I know that he took the complete assembly to the dealer & they rebuilt it for him, then he put it back on. Thanks for the replies.

It is hard to push the lever in gear and harder to shift from low to high. The primary was replaced. Don't think anything was done to the secondary except clean it up. I'm also wondering how many people with this particular sxs had problems with belt & clutch due to overheating in the clutch compartment? Maybe should have put in a different clutch.(Dalton or other) Ohhh! forgot to say he has tracks on it. Was told by dealer that it would not be a problem. We put on a fan to get more cool air going into the clutch compartment. Hope this works.
Thanks for the responses.

Is he driving in high gear.That will balloon that belt so bad and if he has tracks ,the 2 air intake vents that have the fine mesh fabric will allow the snow to melt and down into the clutch hsg ,wetting the belt and screwing up all internal parts.

We put on snorkel to the top of the cab. So there is no restriction and now with the fan installed there is good air circulation. We'll see what happens now.
Yes, he runs it in high. So i'll tell him to keep it in low. Thanks.

Just because he snorkel is high up don't mean there isn't restriction. What size of pipe did you use? One 3" in and 3" out with minimal bends is what you should have to keep good flow.

The (out) has not been snorkeled. The (in) has 2" pipe with a fan to blow air in.
When we turn on the blower, there is a good amount of air coming thru. But it may be not enough air to cool down the clutch ????????????.

2" isn't enough imo for a ranger or rzr 3" should be the pipe. An I would guess that could be the cause of blowing belts.....not the hard to shift unless the belt dust has clogged the 2 way bearing or wrecked a fibre washer. It may have been rebuilt by a Polaris tech but I know some I wouldn't let touch my stuff. Just saying

Boats and Hoes is on a distinguished road
I'm on my 3rd 900 ranger and I found snorkeling is a must and 2 inch worked just fine for me. On my latest Ranger I installed a DURACLUTCH kit and let me tell you, it is like a totally different animal, zero belt slippage, no jerking, it keeps the belt tight in the primary all the time, seems to even shift gears easier, did have problem with moisture in shift cable when really cold, just sprayed cable and dried out, hope this helps, I'm fairly new to this site and don't know when to post stuff. Thx.

Did a 2" snorkel with a 3" inline fan. We drove in a good 20 cm. of snow all day with no overheating issues. He's now a happy camper. I couldn't believe the difference it made. The shifting has gotten better as the day went by. Maybe the clutch needed to be broken in???????.
Thanks to all who contributed there time with ideas.
