So the other day my Outlander 400 belt starts to smoke a bit, then stop. Didnt worry about for a few days, until my belt blew up unexpectedly.
Put on a new belt, all is fine for a few days, but now when driving along it seizes up and comes to a halt then stalls. I cant see anything wrong with the primary or secondary. It almost seems like the engine is seizing, but that doesnt explain the blown belt. Any ideas? I havent seen anything like this before.
When I let the machine cool down it is good again for a few minutes.
Thanks for the great tips guys. I hope to have it working this weekend. Cleaned up the clutch, found a bad bearing in the primary.............hopefully not a crank bearing. I'll run it some more and see what happens.
