700 Prowler melting Rollers

Does anyone have problems with melting clutch rollers on the 700 Prowlers? We keep seeing this problem in the shop.

Only when the belt slips creating heat. Operator use or out of spec belt??

Too much load and not enough fresh air to the cvt.

Every one I have seen has been after high speed runs. Most of my guys run these things down county roads to check sprinklers/fence etc. That is why I think it is high speed that melts the rollers.

Mine melted in my 650 motor just cruising through the dunes.

Did you change anything to keep it from doing the same thing?

Yep. changed the motor. LOL. No more wet clutch or rollers to deal with.
What we were finding was just the opposite of what you are saying. We could not get enough air to the cvt in high range due to the clutches not spinning enough rpm for the sheaves to move enough air. We found that if we used low range the sheaves would move enough air from the higher rpm to keep the rollers cool enough. We were not going as fast as you guys should be on dirt roads though I would think.
Question for you though. Do they slow down from their high speed run and stop and shut it off right away? If it were me I would let it idle for a bit to keep air moving and that might sovle your melting problem.

One key point is at high speeds where the rollers stay engauged in the same spot they can get to hot. If you vary your RPM the rollers can have a change to roll to a different point of contact.

An interesting thread.

I just ordered 2 new stock rollers for my 650. i had 2 rollers with flat spots, all others appear fine. Is that what you consider "melting" or do I have a different issue? My understanding is that roller issues are generally heat related. Sounds like some of the advice provided to minimize roller damage makes sense.

Not sure if just the high speed would cause just 2 to get flat spots. There is just a lot of air at high engine speeds being moved by the sheaves. I could see gravity helping to flatten a couple. It would seem to me that 2 are gonna be on their side so they would not flatten. And so I don't know if their should be four flat or just two. I guess it would depend on how they where situated when the engine was shut down.
