It's taking me a little getting used to the CVT because I'm used to the smooth hydrostatic tranny in my Kubota. The RZR takes off rather quickly, so I'll have to get used to that.
It has new GBC Dirt Tamers on it. 27x9-12 and 27x11-12 with 2" wheel spacers that I may have to remove to ride on some of the restricted trails. It's 53.5" wide front and back right now.
Now to the serious questions:
1. After start up, the gears grind trying to pull it back into reverse, even after warm up and idling back goes back to 1200-1250. If I turn off ignition, move shifter back to neutral and start it again it, I can shift it into R or L, H. But then after a while, putting it in neutral with engine still running, it will grind again. This didn't happen when I tested out the unit. I'm not sure if the idle speed is to high or if there's another problem like the new belt replacement.
Any suggestions of what could be wrong ?
- earlier this year, I purchased a 2014 RZR 800 EPS / LE that had similar hours, miles & tire sizes as yours - mine has a 2" lift kit but no wheel spacers.
Much like you, I didn't care for the way the CVT engaged, so I installed a Duraclutch system, which engages more smoothly so you don't get the quick jerk that stock clutch gives when starting off, it also provides for some engine braking on downhills, they are a bit expensive but might be worth checking out.
My 2014 had Big Horn tires (27x9x12's on front and 27x12x12's back) - I measured about 50 1/2" wide on front & 53 1/2" wide on back (w/o wheel spacers)
- I needed to be at 50" front & back, so I picked up a couple of used front rims from ebay that matched the existing fronts and put 26x9x12 Roctanes on all four.
With regard to the grinding when shifting - did you have the brake fully depressed and engine @ idle?
When I first drove mine, I ground the gears a couple of times when I didn't do that - no issues since then, when I do.
Don't know if have copies of the owners manual or service manual - but here are a a couple of links where you download them if needed,
Owners manual (2011 or 2014 listed - believe that 2011 would be used for 2012) https://offroad.polaris.com/en-us/owners-manuals/
Service manual (for 2011) https://www.manualslib.com/manual/10...00.html#manual
Hope some of this is helpful.
