Thanks in advance!
Even though it's low miles check the belt, I just got a new one for mine and carry the old one as a back-up.

Some are suggesting using 75w-90 in the trans and rear axle. Use Polaris Original in the front axle though.

Search the forum for 800 pinion nut and have fun. [IMG class=inlineimg]https://www.rzrforums.net/images/smilies/frown.gif[/IMG]

I just did mine.



here's a link for the nut problem.

Yeah, pretty sure I need a new belt. Slips in high, jerky. Fine in reverse or low. Why is that?
I don't like the sounds of slipping, but I can tell you from experience that jerky can be from toasting your belt in Hi range on an obstacle where you should have been in low (sand/mud/steep climb). It's not an obvious flaw when examining the belt, it's a symptom. Blowing the dust out of your clutch on a regular basis is paramount. I use a PTFE lube too, but not near the belt or sheaves.

Definitely the belt. Replaced with a Gates Carbon and the slipping, jerking went away. The belt that was on it was skinny looking with small teeth. The replacement is much beefier.

Going to start working on fluid changes next and then brakes. Brakes work but pretty squeaky.

I assume these little accordion deals are catches for vent tubes? Where all do the tubes come from?

I just know that my first 800 was a bit jerky with 1000 miles on it, and blowing out the clutches smoothed it up. I knew the previous owner well, he's big on maintenance but had no idea that was something that needed done.
Well, I took compressed air to the clutch and OMG it was a mess! Couldn't tell by looking at it but it was full of dust. Blew it out and gave it a test. Big difference, way smoother at takeoff and slow crawling.

Thanks for the info!

Glad it helped. I was a skeptic at first too. I don't know where all that dust hides lol but you sure can't see it.
