Hi all,

I am new here. I have a 2012 Wildcat 1000. It has about 467miles on it. I just purchased this a few months ago. The guy i bought it from blew the transmission gear out in it. but had a friend of his who is an arctic cat mechanic fix it. I have put roughly 150 miles on it and it ran perfect until last weekend. After riding all day i started to go up a small hill and could not make it in 2wd so i rolled back down put it in 4wd and it wouldnt go just a loud clunking noise from my engine. so i took it out of 2wd and tried again still nothing but the loud noise. so after getting it home i pulled the clutch cover off and the belt is fine. so i stuck a wrench on the secondary clutch and rotated the clutches and you can here it sounds like its binding. Would this be the transmission? I just don't understand how it went out with no indication anything was wrong. Does anyone have an idea of how much this would cost to fix?

Is your shift cable working....and your gauge registers what gear you are in?
You can do a quick field diagnostic of the differentials/axles by putting the cat in neutral and jacking up the rear so the rear wheels are off the ground. Then slowly rotate a wheel. They will both rotate and should turn smoothly without binding or noise. Do the same with the front. If they sound good I would think your problem is in the engine by your shifting.
Providing the cable is good, I suspect it's in the engine because both your front and rear are not working.

it was showing gears until i opened the the cable box open to make sure the gears were good in there. it does show E on the dash now and only says neutral or park.
