I’m new to this forum, so I apologize if this has been answered 100 times already. My 2014 Arctic Cat 500 has something slipping. I can run it at 4000 rpms and move at about 10mph max, doesn’t matter if it in low, high or reverse. I thought it was the belt, (which looks pretty good) so I replaced it. Still is doing it. The roller weights look good on both the primary and secondary pulleys. Spring is intact, even though I haven’t pulled it apart. Does this sound like a wet clutch issue? I can’t find much on the interwebs for help. Anyone smarter than me that knows about this stuff?

Yes it does. Have you used wet clutch safe oil? Do you use low when pulling heavy loads?

I use low when I’m climbing hills or pulling something heavy. I noticed when I was running some trails, I kept getting engine codes when I was under a load or going up a hill. I’m also running 27” Swamp Lites. I’m sure that doesn’t help. I use Amsoil specific for my ATV, according to their website.
