Sounds like a slipping wet clutch, either from being worn out, bad oil, or another issue. Did you happen to change the oil recently? If so, what kind of oil did you use?
It does sound like it maybe a wetclutch..But..maybe a little more info will help.Thanks for answering. I have not changed the oil recently. I did check the level today and it was low so I put some in it. The clutch operates like it should from a visual inspection. I jacked up the rear end and the tires spun and the primary engaged like it was supposed to but when it’s on the ground nothing. Do you think if I change the oil that it would make a difference?
When the Griz is hitting the rev-limiter...is the rev-limiter hitting through out the rpm range. Lower rpm's and higher or just high rpm's?Hello, thanks for the response! I did try turning the primary by hand and it did try to turn the motor over. As for the 4wd question, it doesn’t make a difference if it’s in 4wd or not, still the same issue. I’d like to point out that while I’m giving the atv throttle it sounds like it’s hitting the rev limiter also and it basically just dies. I would like to figure out exactly what the problem is before I go and order parts for it. I assumed it was the belt first and that got me nowhere.
I am assuming while on jack stands you turned the rear wheels with the engine, you also observed the CVT closing and opening properly, is that correct?
With the Griz on the ground does it move better with the 4wd engaged? Trying to eliminate a stripped driveshaft.
Wasn't clear to me in the responses if reogem's question about what it does on jack stands was answered. I agree that would be helpful to know. Or perhaps, could you take a video of what it is doing, post on youtube and link here?Sounds like it is just the higher rpms.

Try a P.M. to member waltinbatonrouge for blocks.Another question, if I rebuild the clutch blocks what all do I need? I understand I’ll need new blocks but will I need to get any other gaskets other than the clutch housing one? Also I saw on another thread that the blocks from atv911.com are decent blocks. Do any of you know about those?

Did you inspect the drum?
Thanks for the info! I downloaded the service manual and ordered all of the parts I need. I’ll keep everyone posted of the outcome.You should download a service manual.
Don't know if the service manuals point out that the nut on the wet clutch is left handed (anticlockwise).
Use a dab of locktite on that nut also.
