Prowler Noise?

My buddy has a prowler 1000 and at idle it is making an awful screeching noise that goes away as son as you bring it off idle when in neutral. When put in gear it stalls right away? Is this a One way problem? Or is the problem further in the wet clutch? He did put a new one way in but it was still doing it. So he tore it apart again and found galling on the housing where the bearing sits. Is this his problem or is there something else going on ? The original bearing didn't look that bad but it did have some flat spots.

Thanks

Make sure he is putting the dot on the one way bearing facing towards him.

Take the one way off and try the machine without it, at least that will eliminate the bearing as being the cause. Stalling when put in gear at idle makes me think the wet clutch is engaging. Maybe a broken spring on the clutch. I'd start there.

Thanks guys the one way was in the right way . I will have him check for a broken spring.

What would cause this problem to start? He did blow a belt at high speed about a month or so ago but has had a couple of hundred KM's on it since.

With all the heat in the clutch system (wet & dry) it is amazing that they hold up as well as they do!

Hey guys how's it going ? I'm lost !!!! My cat is still down. I had blown a belt a while back and replaced it with oem. Then while out riding there was lots of smoke and belt was slipping real bad. . So l took it apart again and replaced both seals and put new belt in again! ! Now I know I put everything together right but now I'm getting a loud kinda clanking noise in the housing! ! Not constant but enough to make me worried !!!!! I'm so lost now . I can't figure out what it is would anyone here now what it could be ??

Sounds like the nut on the fixed plate came off. They tend to fail after several tightening's, and usually when it fails/comes loose it takes the splines out of the fixed plate. I'd start there.

When you compressed the secondary to change the belt, did it release when you installed the new belt? I've had mine get stubborn at times! But these things are really noisy in the clutch department. Is there any sign of metal flakes inside the cover, if not, and it is working correctly try different speeds/loads and see if any are better or worse.
