I posted on here a few days ago. Im still chasing where to look for my belt engaging issues. While at idle the sled wants to take off. I redid the whole primary and checked belt deflection. Now im wondering... could it be clutch alignment. This past summer I had to install a new oil tank in the sled. I took the secondary off the sled. When I put it back together, I forgot to put a shim on the chain case side of the sled and it bound up the chain case. I took it to the dealer, but when I got it back, it was crawling forward at idle. I didnt think anything of it, just thought it was the deflection. I was looking online at some videos and people were saying I need shims on the secondary side of the secondary clutch... primarily where the bearing sits on in the pillar. Im hoping this will help me fix this, but this is my only idea now. Any help is appreciated. Sled is a 2013 summit 800 etec XM

Thanks - Zeb

I would think it has to be either deflection or in the primary.  Can you visually see a gap between the belt and movable primary sheave?
