2015 arctic cat prowler 700 hdx xt grinding noise

Went elk hunting about 3 weeks ago and my cat started to make a metal on metal grinding noise. Sounds like I may be coming from the clutch. Took it to the dealer and they replaced the belt. Appeared I wore that out rather fast.
Didn't grind when I got it back. Put the plow on to clear the drive way today started grinding again and the shop knows nothing, said they will call arctic cat in the morning. Anyone else have this problem?
Thanks


-Darren

Welcome to the forum! Does it do it while idling? Low Gear?, High Gear, any aluminum flakes coming out the clutch air out duct? Does the clutch engage as it should? More questions than answers! I had a bolt back off in the inner cover once, chewed the clutch face up and pushed aluminum flakes out of the clutch air out duct. I'm sure you will get more advice!

It does in all does it in all gears but only at idle. Once i give it some gas and drive it stops. Shop found no flakes only belt dust in the clutch.

Darren welcome to the house .. some back n forth needed here.

do you have experience with quads and or SxS's ?

did you use low gear when needed v/s just powering through tuff slopes/hills , these are tuff on belts when just powering in high range at slow speeds for long periods especially in steep terrain .. also plowing should be low range at lower speeds .. don't try to shift into or out of low or high when moving these trannies don't like that at all.

fellow above is a good source of info and knowledge as well as others here.

your tracks will stress the belt more than tires [assume you know that by now] so gear selection is important ..

hang in there answers / suggestions will come

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

This is my first SxS.I use low gear for hills and loads and plowing. High gear for flat ground.

Welcome to the house Darren, what do you guys think could a one-way bearing cause this?

The belt should last years. You have a clutch kit & tracks, did it make the noise before they were installed? I think the clutch kit comes with a washer & rollers, could something have been installed wrong? I'm just throwing some thoughts out, your rig is a lot newer than mine.

Had no noise before tracks, and noise for the first 50+ miles with the tracks on. Only 450 miles on the machine so far. I am sure I installed the clutch kit properly.

Hopefully someone on here that has tracks will jump in the conversation and can help.
