|Stormking||I just finished installing skids after thorough washing. I notice driver rear axle appears to 1/4 inch out of socket at diff.?? Hmm, not sure if I am correct and it is out? I have noticed a small clunk at times when suspension is traveling deep but I assumed it was a sway link or something and it sounded to come from front? I think I will take to dealer and have it inspected.. Is there others with similar issue? Is this the axle issue I read about??|

|BobX2||99.9% of belt problems on all CVT machines is the operator. If the axle problems he is referring to are the axles pulling out, Kawasaki will replace them for you. Inconvenient yes, a deal breaker, no chance. If he is breaking axles, burning up belts and has suspected clutch problems, I would guess he is a rather abusive owner. Those problems all tie together if you beat on your machine hard enough. No way of knowing for sure unless an owner owns up to it. Not likely to happen. Much easier to just point a finger at the machine and call it a POS.|

|Stormking||I seen krx1000 youtube videos. If ya want know what kind riding he(assuming same guy) does watch em. Hint, he doesn't baby it! I have not had any issues yet but I don't have 2000m on it either. I have 19hr and I don't baby em either. How do ya get that much riding done in 2 months! Jealous.|

|JCAM||What type of riding were you doing when the axles failed and is the dealership telling you this was a one time issue? And, were you given any reason for the belt failure? I am on the fence about a KRX purchase and do not want to have design/QC issues out of a new machine. I love the KRX and want to feel confident in the purchase. More trail riding here in the south with not as much rock crawling.|

|Stormking||Just a heads up. Kawa tech was at my dealer to help with my machine. Dealer tech told me a bulletin is being issued to address bolts soon. All should check these. They said mine were fine and it was a "robotics issue" responsible during assembly?|

|RobG||I opened mine up tonight... all of my bolts were tight. FWIW, I have about 120 miles on my KRX now.|

The pic shows the secondary... the primary is the smaller one on the left. Which bolts are we supposed to check? I mean, there's the main one that holds the primary on the crank, and then generally, three bolts and nuts hold the weights in place.
Looking at the secondary, I see its main center bolt, and what looks like three allen-head socket bolts... guessing those hold it together under spring tension and with the helix in the middle.
Just wanted to know what to look for when I pull mine apart tomorrow or the next day...

|lawnmowerepair man||I checked the bolts and I had to tighten four of them It had 4 miles on it.|

Check your KRX primary bolts!
Long story short...
We were doing some crawling and hill killing and noticed a little clicking in the clutch. Took a pass up a steep hill, and let it free roll back down to try again. Hit the gas and it just bogged down. Probably didn't get over 2k -2500 rpm when bogged down. The primary bolt had backed out into the housing. It boogered up the housing a little and left some shavings, but didn't do too much damage.
We have 2 machines, one for play and one for parts. We came back to the shop, checked the 2nd machine, and it was also starting to back out.
Check it and tighten it down!
