clutch stuck?

had problem with my 08 prowler 650 today. seems like clutch is stuck. if you start it in gear it starts moving when the starter engages. if it starts up & moves, then when you stop it kills the engine. if you start it in neutral, it grinds when you try to put it in gear. makes noise if you rev it up in neutral. if you put it in gear with engine off, you can't roll the machine in either direction. any help? thanks

Have you pulled the belt cover off and inspected the area?

I'm new to Prowlers, but I didn't even know you could start them in gear. My 2006 won't start unless it is in neutral. Do you have to hold the brake down or something while in gear? Sorry, didn't mean to get off topic....

pull your pri apart and check your rollers sounds like one is out of place.

You will need to remove both cvt clutches then the inner cover....drain oil first. Once you have the inner cover off you will see a 1 way bearing on your internal wet clutch. remove the left hand threaded nut and remove the one way bearing all together if you dont care for engine breaking...or replace it ith new... the green dot must face out.

They start in N or in gear with the brake pedal applied. If your primary shaft is turning when you start the motor then your wet clutch is locked up. It locks for only two reasons. Under normal operation it will lock up when the RPM is off idle and then engauge the Primary or Drive clutch. Second if it's locked all the time then you have issues with your one way bearing or wet clutch. Like Super Duty said you will need to remove both primary and secondary clutches, and inner case to gain access to the wet clutch. Do you have a service manual for your machine. If you don't I can email you one.
