    Wildcat General Discussion
    Hi guys, so I just purchased a 2012 Wildcat 1000 a week ago. First ride I took it on I was cruising 50mph down the gravel road. Then the belt broke, it was insanely hot in the clutch area when I took the cover off. The drive clutch is in really bad shape and needs replacing. But I can’t find...
  2. Running 30’s on my wildcat trail sport

    Wildcat Sport
    In the market of getting a new set of wheels, I came across a great deal for some tires. Was originally planning on running 28’s however I found a set of 30’s for a much better price, would I need to do any clutch work? Or you think I should be fine for a while? My rig has only 30 miles on it.

  4. Blew my reverse gear

    Wildcat XX
    Last weekend, reversing out of a mud hole that had a log in it, I zipped all the teeth off my reverse gear. Of course all those teeth decide to play with all the other gears on the playground. Ended up losing a bearing, four gears, and the transaxle cover. $700 later I have the parts on order...
  5. Windshield

    Wildcat Sport
    So right now I have a full windshield that was on the Wildcat sport when I bought it. I am wondering with the heat of the summer if it’s a good idea to get a half shield. Anyone have any insight on this?

  8. XX wheel bearing replacement

    Wildcat XX
    I need to replace my wheel bearings. For the internal snap ring holding the bearing in place, typical snap ring pliers don't open wide enough. Is there a trick to this? Is there a "large" set of snap ring pliers available? Everything I'm seeing online looks to be the same size but obviously it's...

  10. Wheel lug nut torque specs

    Wildcat XX
    Unless I missed it somewhere, the wheel lug nut torque specs are not in the owner or service manuals. I seen an axle replacement video from Rocky Mountain ATV stating 95 ft-lbs. Is this correct? Thanks.

    Wildcat Trail / Trail XT
    Installed camso utv4s1 track system on my trail tonight. Has anyone else tried tracks on there trail or sport?
  12. Spring compressor

    Wildcat XX
    What kind of spring compressor will work on the XX? For example to install the 2" spacer lift that's now available. The two piece automotive ones look to big to fit in between the coils. The big ones on a stand can get pretty expensive. Has anyone removed their springs for whatever reason?
  13. Wildcat XX axle size

    Wildcat XX
    Along with the suspension components, sounds like the axles themselves are built for abuse. How much larger are they compared to competitors? What is the axle shaft diameter? Anyone had issues other than plunge & boot issues?
  14. Wildcat XX Mud Pro

    Wildcat XX
    Who thinks there will be a version for the people who play in the mud? It only makes sense since Polaris & CanAm have been doing it. All the intakes are already up high. Maybe a small lift. 32" mud slingers on beadlocks. A winch installed up front under the hood. A tow loop or hook out back...
  15. Alternator

    Wildcat XX
    Anyone been in water or mud deep enough to fully submerge the alternator? I know it's enclosed but how well is it really sealed? Anyone had any issues?

    Wildcat X
    Thought I would post this to get everyone's thoughts. I found a 15 Wildcat for sale and decided to go take a look at it. My thoughts was to possibly purchase it since I own a 2012. As I looked at it I noticed that motor didn't look right. I'm 99% positive that it's a 2012 motor in this 2015...
  18. Looking for a Rear Axle shaft for a 2012 Wildcat 1000

    Wildcat Parts and Products For Sale
    Wondering if anyone might have an axle shaft only that they want to get rid of. I have a bent axle shaft but the cv joints are just fine. Was thinking if I could find just the shaft I could put my cv joints on and have a good spare.
