2009 prowler 1000 clutch Trans problems

I have a 09 artic cat prowler 1000 efi I traded my 4 wheeler for a couple weeks ago. I only put a mile on it before something went wrong. I pulled in my drive way after riding it down a small trail by my house I switched from high gear to low gear to get ready to pull up in my shop the shifter got stuck i disconcected the linkage and tried to get it to shift to any gear I guess it was stuck between high an low an would just rev. Tried rockin it but not luck so I pulled the engine removed belt cover an manually turned the cvt clutches an it freed up the shifter. So I put the engine back in the prowler and could shift all gears but all i had was reverse. Forward gears would try to move it but it was makin a noise from trans or clutch sounded like a faint grinding so I pulled the engine again and now when i turn the cvt counter clockwise the drive shafts turn for which gear im in like nothing is wrong.
Im stumped any help or ideas are greatly appreciated I have a service manual incase it come to tearing it down. Could the wet clutch be bad?

If the wet clutch was bad it would not idle in gear, and could cause hard shifting. Sounds like the linkage is out of adjustment, or damaged/worn. I'd start there after inspecting the wet clutch.

Leave the linkage unhooked and see if you can drive and shift it normally. That would tell you if it is an internal problem or just a linkage problem like Fairmont said.

I was able to spin the secondary clutch an the drive shafts were spining with the corresponding gears but I can hold the drive shaft im Low an high gear an spin the clutch an the drive shaft won't move... but If I put it in reverse I can't hold the drive shaft. So it must be some stripped gears somewhere in there guess I would have to split the case to find out forsure????!

Yeah the first thing I tried while the engine was still in was to pull the linkage and make sure it was fully in gear. Any one have any experiance splitin the case or is there another way to check replace gears or what ever is broke

Very well could be the bevel gears. Pulling the top end off, and then splitting the case is entailed for the bevel gears, you may be able to see the bevel gears by pulling the front cylinder, but I'm a 700 guy, so I really don't know. A case splitter will be needed. I'll bow to someone with XTZ experience! Keep us informed as you work through it!

thanks .. some reading "experience" would be great , I have well over 5K miles on mine and never a lick of trouble other than the recent fuel pump .... but I do have a very noisy tranny [and have since I bought it] so who knows I may eventually have some on hand experience some day LOL

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

Splitting the case is intimidating! After reading the service manual, it really is not that bad of deal! Just like anything new! Still building my second engine! Keep looking for a good buy on the crank, and rod! I have the case, trans gears, cylinder, piston, cylinder head & upper end, oil pump, water pump, and collection of bearings! Still don't have over 600.00 dollars invested!
