AWD problem solved...this could be your problem.

I have had AWD problems with my 08 RZR for as long as I can remember and have had the front diff apart many times.

The problem ended up being a gouge in one of the valleys the rollers roll up into. Being the all the rollers are connected to the sprague cage, if one roller cant roll neither can the others.

The solution was sanding out the grooves. I havent had a problem since. How the gouge got there is beyond me. I have never broke any internal parts. My cage is still the original with no cracks. The only thing I have replaced is the armature plate.

For those out there that are going through AWD problems and cant find an answer you might want to check this out!!
