Stranded

2013 Hdx 700
We were going down the trail and I assume the drive belt broke. Smell of rubber burning no power. Won't even start now. Is there a mechanism to prevent starting?

if the belt broke and bound itself up in the clutch pack probably wouldn't allow it to start just guessing here

name is Gary or hey you if ya forget

2009 Prowler XTZ , couple things added here and there
'83 CJ7 / SBC + whole lot added here and there
'01 Dodge / Cummins / Dually, a ton of stuff added here and there

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE NEWBIES ...
1. Bring in a good load of firewood for the pit
2. start the morning coffee , strong but not burnt / boiled down , IMPORTANT start it early as many of us old farts get up early !!
3. sit a spell and swap some lies with the best of us

Not that I've heard, but there may be a safety on it. The wet clutch should allow it to turn over without being engaged.

This certainly seems plausible that the remnants of the belt got jammed in or around the primary so much that the crank won't turn.
