I shreded my belt and parts of the belt ( rope like material) has gotten caught behind the clutch flywheel. I've taken it apart all the way to the fly wheel and dont know how to get the wheel off any suggestions? Ty in advance!

It's actuall the inner sheave of the clutch, and you'll need a clutch puller to get it off.

Yeah you will need a factory clutch puller. Also when removing the inner sheave the puller tip will need a very small dab of grease on the tip only. This will help it turn easy. While turning the puller bolt, gently tap the sheave with a hammer to get it to pop loose. The you can get to anything stuck behind it.

welcome to the forum...sorry to hear about the belt issue. Looks like the other comments have you pointed in the right direction.

Tried to pull peices out just not enough room between the housing to get in their. Ive only got 527mi on my mav and have had to replace tie rods, A arms, 3 new back tires (due to sidewall punctures), had fuel gauge issues ( gauge would read emty when I had 1/2 tank), cv boots And so on.. I dont think the belt issue is self inflicted as I have faithfully ran my mav for at least 15min for a warm up every time!
Dear Abby am I just to much of a man for this "machine!?"

With the info provided I think at this point ill just bring it to my dealer torn apart and have them pull it and put it back on then finish the job myself after that.

Just get the puller. It's simple. Dealers will probably screw it up.

The issue isn't with proper warm up. It is about too much heat in the belt. Sounds like you ride your equipment hard.....I would recommend a CVT belt temp gauge so you can monitor your temps and know when you are getting it too hot and you can prevent a blown belt from occurring in the future.

It helps....I have mine wrapped but the biggest problem is heat induced from belt slippage or improper clutching putting too much load on the belt....

You ruined tie rods, a arms, and 3 tires in 500 miles and you don't think the belt was self inflicted! Yeah right! Lol!

I ride in No. NV and its very rocky thats why the A arms got bent.The tie rod bent pulling the rig onto my trailer, pulled it on at a slight angle and bent the rod to a 90°. I ride with a buddy that has a rzr and he beats the wholly livn snot outta that thing and it keeps on tickn. Its to the point where he referrers to my mav as the "PP" pavement pounder!

Dont get me wrong I love my mav but it just seems like BRP spent all the money on the power plant and went as cheap as they could on EVERYTHING else!

I have to agree on the tie rods being cheap but not sure I can agree with the term "everything else". If you are hitting rocks with your A-arms and bending them, maybe you should not hit the rocks! Or buy some beefy A-arm skid plates.....same goes for the tires. Don't subject the tire to something that is gonna puncture it or get tires designed for this type of terrain with a 10 or 12 ply sidewall....These machines are built for all around use. If you are riding in an extreme environment that needs specific equipment such as heavy duty skid protection for the underside and A-arms as well as tires, that isn't really the manufacturers fault. That would be like the guys who ride exclusively in the dunes saying the stock tires suck in the dunes......of course they do. You gotta equip the vehicle for the terrain you will be riding in or expect to have issues.....
