CVT COVER

I just finished snorkeling my 2010 RZR S this weekend. Does the CVT cover need to be sealed shut with silicone? I heard they leak from the factory.

Re: CVT COVER

I use axle grease, that way you can remove it and reapply as needed. It makes it alot easier to work with. Ive never had a leak using this. Just my .02 cents worth.

Re: CVT COVER

Thanks for the feedback. Are ya'll taking the cover off and applying it or just putting it around the outside?

Re: CVT COVER

Remove cover and grease both sides of the gasket in the cover, just make sure not to leave too much on the inside of the clutch cover or the belt could grab some and start slipping.

Re: CVT COVER

I talked to the dealer i purchased it from today. Pro Powersports of Conroe. He said to seal it shut with silicone. It's not like you have to take it off every other day.

Re: CVT COVER

just don't use the black rtv silicone gasket maker...my buddy has got a sportsman outside with the belt cover permanently attached...we spent an hour today trying to pry it off...no luck...gonna have to cut it off and replace the cover...

I guess the good news is it doesn't leak....

Re: CVT COVER

Damn thats some bad stuff. I actually have some 100% clear silicone used in aqariums. Its made to stay under water for long periods of time, unlike alot of the others. Hopefully it want be to hard to remove if or should I say when I have to go into the clutches.

Re: CVT COVER

I have never used anything on my CVT cover, and I go deep all the time. If you are worried, just use some diolectric grease. Just be sure your gasket is straight, and you tighten it up good....not too much because you will strip the plastic.
