    Cant Find the Stupid Question Category so I'm posting here.

    Guys,

    This is an ole FNG From Michigan, new to the Wolverine Side by Side world, and new to this forum.
    I've realized now on a number of occasions, with the cold weather and various projects I take my "Lil Wolvie" on, that I have forgot, left it running and idling while in gear. Last night while burning a large brush pile it sure was nice to be able to get off the tractor and warm up in my little toasty rig, but I was a little sickened to see the thing was idling for an hour or so while in gear. I need to find an exploded view of the Yamaha drive train to really understand whats going on in there, but could my forgetfulness cause any damage to the Wolverine?

    Would love to see a graphic video of the transmission workings to be able to understand the differences in the Yamaha design.

    Thanks Guys in advance, any advice would be appreciated.

    You're fine. While idling in gear, the engine isn't turning fast enough for the wet clutch to engage so no damage or wear is being done as far as your CVT/transmission goes. Other slipper clutch designs don't have a wet clutch and the belt tensions is loose while idling.

    You don't want it going for a ride without you though. Not that I've see or heard the RPM's pickup. I've done the same thing for a short period of time and others. I scare myself and put it in neutral. LOL

    Great clutch system in these.
