Re: Clutch Coverless in the Dunes?
Sand is obviously very abrasive. However, it doesn't seem to be a problem to run with the cover off. The faces of the sheaves are a wear item anyways, they will not last forever. We have been running Rhinos and Teryxs in the sand with the belt covers off for a long time with no issues.
In the case of the Polaris 1000s, running with the cover off is the best thing you can do, until a clutching fix is available. When the fix is proven and done, we will be reinstalling the clutch cover. Until then, no cover!
