Hey everyone hope all is well ! My 18 wcx limited 1000 has 35 miles on it , I've only had it to 30 mph seems like the rpms are around 4500 maybe shy or just above...is this normal? Is there a 2nd gear or it's all continuous? If that's the case it must literally scream at 70mph ! Not sure what to think here

Team Industries made a nice video to explain how a CVT works:

4500 / 30 mph sounds about right for high gear.

Great video I appreciate the extra information! I have a really good idea on the CVT I just here so many good and bad ....my buddy has a 4 seater yamaha and can cruise at 40mph for miles and miles no issues, am I going to be able to do the same without the belt blowing up? Or do I have to stop every little bit and let the machine cool down!

...this things are way better then most said....

i ride both with my atv and wildcat daily tours up to around 300kms up to 8 hours ad day- i drive miles with around 5500 to 6500 rpms-about 80-90kmph(max is 7300 around)- ok sometimes i miss like a 3rd gear...but ive learned to live with that speed...

i did a trip to italy and back 2000kms- we have now 6000kms with the FIRST belt-

i dont do crazy things- no heavy mud- we dont have deep sand- not much FULL throttle-just simple nice long trips on streets and trails...

of course let it cool down from time to time- goin slower or when stop longer put it in N to let hot air out-

on both rides modified/shortened the CVT exhaust that hot air can get out-

use 10-50/60 oil for summer - all good- love my arctic cats!!

i'm not being kept here by any particular doc...however, i don't want to go back for a short time only to have to return the end of this month for a c.t. scan and any subsequent procedures if needed...heart is fine but something else has reared its head...might be something minor or major but i'm a glass is half empty guy...
