Quad strts easy but

When you put it in gear it dies . 99 Polaris with automatic clutch. Mice had packed the inside of clutch housing with nesting material ,pee and poo. Cleaned it all out . I know the clutch is springs and weights that move the pulley plates in and out to engage the belt. Just not seeing anything obvious.
Any Ideas. Ran good when I last parked it last winter. Mice got in over winter.

I have had that happen if it had old fuel in the tank over the winter.
It sounds like more of a power problem than mechanical. If running right engine should be able to power through and grass and debris would get spun out.

The clutch housing is cleared out,nothing I can see in between the springs /weights or pulley plate. Starts on first try Idles at 600rpm, give it gas it revs up no sputtering etc. All this in neutral. Have to let rpms die down when shift to forward or reverse, dies instantly when put in gear. Starts right back up ,no problem. I think it has to do with the clutch plates which looks good . Off to google search

I hope someone has the answer to your problem because I'm having the same problem with a 2001 Yamaha Wolverine.

There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.

No, Starts easy, revs good, no missing or backfire. Last year it seemed to have to rev hi to get moving, may be a clutch problem was developing.
