I have an 800HO 2004 just installed a new belt and when i went to start it up it tried to move foward.Belt has same number as the old one and seems to be the same.My buddy has the same sled and we installed it on his and it worked fine .I tried turnning back the tension on secondary clutch and that didn't work either. Anyone have this problem or know what could be wrong.

you need to adjust your cam on your driven(3 6mm bolts) so your belt is sitting with just the cooling fins above the pulley. its just a lil too tight, prolly because the previous belt was slightly different or has been adjusted by previous owner/dealer

As mentioned by 76tnt there is a cam adjuster on your secondary clutch. With the sled on a track stand loosen the 3 bolts on turn the cam to a lower number to open the sheave and allow the belt to sit lower. Try one number at a time .... retighten 3 bolts ... fire it up and turn track a few revolutions. Keep doing until track just barely creeps at idle on a track stand.

I am sorry I failed to mention that i have already done that.I actually moved it all the way back to 0 and still the same issues.Thank You.I contacted my dealer today and he never really heard of it before,and he seems to think there is some issue with the belt,hopefully.

Sounds like it could be your Primary is sticking and not openening (disengaging) all the way if the sled wants to move or stall when you put the break on (assuming belt tension and propper belt are being used)

If it is the primary clutch,what would be stoping it from fully disengauging.I would also like to add that i had a heelclicker kit added this season at my dealer

Did you buy a OEM belt? Are you sure you got the right one. Measure it against the old one. if they are very different something is wrong with the belt. How hard was it to get on? Sounds like the belt is too short.

Check the numbers on the top of the belt and see if it's the same as the old one.

If it's the right one, did the old one work fine? If so, what was your cam on the secondary set at? The reason I ask is because your clutches may need to be aligned. Your C-C distance may be off causing the belt be to tight. Just a thought. Chances are it's nothing major

check the primary spring it could be brock heelclicker had problems with there spring
[snapback]705865[/snapback]​
I checked the primary spring today and it was fine.Whaat i did notice was that The weights didn't seem to be sitting properly .One was sitting fine but the other two didn't seem to fall down all the way,they were touching the sheeve.I think this would stop the clutch from fully disengauging don't you.We are having a storm here now so if you could tell me how to correct this it would be great.
