Noise when in neutral

I have a question regarding my Polaris Hawkeye 300 that I have. My son was riding it through deep water when the belt snorkel came off allowing muddy water to enter directly into the belt housing. This was not discovered right away as the belt did start to slip right away. Now while the bike is running but in neutral there is a noticeable low pitched hum or whine. Sounds like it is coming from the belt housing. Any recommendations on what it might be?

Thanks

swamped clutches 9 times out of 10 usually are not an issue but it only takes that one time to become a pain. i have a 2005 650 v2 that i usually ride in the rivers. i had swamped it a few time and didnt have any issues other than the extended time to dry the darn thing out. 650 v2's do not have a clutch drain. well the last time i swamped it i had issues. the clutch doesnt fully expand to hit top end. i used to get about 75+ mph out of it pretty easy and now i cant hit 60. its been on the back burner to tear the clutches out and clean but if your having issues after a swamping, your in my boat. you may have a small stone or something in there that is causing the issue.

Hmmm. It still has top speed which on a 300 isn't very fast. I think I am going to pull the CV cover tonight and try to clean it out. Any recommendations? Also, if the gasket is shot and one isn't readily available to put the cover back on. What would you use?

What about this as an option? Found it on a Polaris site. Keep in mind this is on a 2006 Polaris, not a Cat


This dealer did tell me a neat trick. In a training session with Polaris, they filled the belt housing with 5 gallons of water. To clear it out, they put the machine in neutral and ran the throttle up half way. The clutches pumped the water out of the housing like a water pump.

Not sure on that idea, should work somewhat, but drain plug would also be used.

i have never thought of purposely putting water in there. id be nervous about doing damage, mainly to seals.

as far as the top speed, that is just where my clutch was having issues. my thoughts are that depending where the sand, dirt, rock or what ever it is gets into might effect it differently. its possible the primary isnt completely opening up or secondary not completely closing so as to sit in neutral just tickling the belt causing sound? lots of possibilities.

Could be flat spotted rollers, mine seem to last about 500-750 miles. But I pull mine down frequently!

I found the problem. On the inside of the belt cover is a bearing that is pressed into the cover to which one of the shafts sits in. This bearing was bad and making a horrible noise. Cross referenced the bearing locally at an auto parts store.$3.99 for the bearing and the noise is gone.

I went and bought a bearing puller with a slide hammer. Worked great. Cost $70 plus 20% off but now I have the tool to use. Next problem. The a-arm is broke off at the frame. RRR. That was a rough night of riding. That will hopefully be fixed tonight after some welding by my buddy.
