Wrench Belt change ?????

ok guro's need some rhino assistance:

got a new belt one under the driver seat side. Having a royal b^(&*^ch of a time trying to get that cover off? suggestions????

2nd : my belt on the rhino looks the same as the new belt so how can I tell if this one is worn out or not? ( keep in mind this belt on here now would not allow me to move the rhino and i had to push it into the freaking garage...

3rd... why have a belt with ridges top and bottom but the wheels ( pulleys ) it rides on are slick????

not looking for blasting b/c im changing a belt im trying to just learn more infomation and do things myself than get $$$ at the shop for them to do it.

thanks rhino brothers

Belt change

I changed mine this summer, not too difficult. Go to hunterworks.com, Todd has a video on there that will walk you through the install. Took me about 30 minutes - and I knew nothing about it prior to starting. Good luck.

Try taking the bolt out of the clamp that holds the water line to the frame...

The outer cover on/off is the hard part...

If the belt is good condition it is not the reason why you had to push the S@B into the garage...!

the belt rides on its edge only and rides on the "face" of the two shevs...the faster they spin with rpm....one squeshes closer together and makes the belt start to ride higher and higher...changing your gear..primary rear one...the secondary front one...belt starts out at the top of shevs and that one opens up with rpm and the belt drops down inside ...also changing your gearing...this is the cvt transmision...like a snowmobile and scooter...the wet clutch behind is a rhino thing...its what ingages you cvt (belt)...the belt has the ribs...i think it help cool it...it get hot in there

Beat black. Sounds like my problem but need that cover off to change the belt out to see if it is going to the other problems you have listed below. Need help how to get that cover off and back on???

Will the rhino run with cover off to make sure things are in working order ???

Naw beat. No motor stuff taken off. Just the seats and the bolts for the belt plastic case. I have the water pipe attached to the frame loosened up so I can try to get that plastic case out and away from the belt so I an work on it.

Is the oil you referring too same as the motor oil?

No I'm not first owner got several hours on it. Has 27x10x12 tires stock height.

Was going to replace the belt and see if that was my problem an work it one problem at the time. I have to do a oil change on it anyway. And was going to use yamalube.

All the other stuff you said was awesome info just hoping I don't have to get to those problems yet. Hoping just a belt and oil issue and it's fixed.

If stuck in the mud I usually don't push it I just get towed out and go back to playing. If anything I can send you pics of where im at at this point and we work from there.

????

If you remove the bolt that secures the water line to the frame you should be able to work the cover out into the section below the seat and out...it does come out with no problem if you angle it correctly...and let the waterline flex to the side some...

Yes...run without the outer cover no problem...do NOT run it without the aluminum cage secured...it supports the whole primary assembly...without it...you can break your engine causes and do extensive damage...

Odds are it is your wet clutch... and that is the cheapest problem you could have at this point...
