I have searched quite a bit to try and figure out me new issue. Basically, the General is grinding from a start in high gear only. Low gear works perfect, but start from high and there is some sort of clanking which leads to a clanky start. I swear it sounds like the clanking is coming from the front, but alas it does it in turf mode as well as the others.

After researching on here a bit I thought maybe it was the belt. However, my General only has 75 hours and 330 miles.

Can anyone decipher anything from this vid? 🤷‍♂️

Wow.
I agree with B above on not driving it.
Wish I could be better help.

Well I opened up the CVT drain plug and there was a build up of fine greyish dust. This video was after I already removed the bulk of the dust. Is this dirt/debris normal to find when opening the CVT drain?

I ordered a new belt just because. I'll be able to open her up tomorrow, but was just curious if this is normal.

TIA:coffee:

That's definitely not normal for anyone that blows the clutches out frequently... you may find your issue is with your clutches...

Got the belt off, it definitely has some tearing on a couple cogs. But would this be enough to jerk the tranny like it did?
I have a Hunterworks belt coming this evening, we'll see if it solves it.

Clean your clutch sheaves with some acetone or brake parts cleaner. Check for grooves or glazing. You can clean them up with a scotch Brite pad too. Blow all that dust out of there too. Let us know how it goes after the belt swap.

If using a liquid or spray, put it on a rag and then wipe off the sheaves. Don't spray it on the sheaves as it can get down to the bearing if you use too much.
