Does your quad have a chain on it?

If not, then I'd suspect that as the problem....

Don't let the "regulars" get you down. Just a little hazing... Welcome to TT!

My thoughts... tho not worth much

Problems could range from...
Clutches crapped out
Main drive gear on the output shaft
Gear came loose on back of clutch basket
Stripped gears between Clutch basket and transmission

Start looking on the Clutch side.

Good luck

Is your Raptor a 2001?

I spent 5 minutes on the bluetraxx sites forum and learned that you do not want to buy a 01' Raptor, 2nd a 4th gear problems.

Go spend some time on the forums overthere concerning your Raptor problems, sounds like you will be able to find your problem.

Thank you guys very much for your insight(the ones that tried to help).I too think it's the clutch but anyhow ,if anyone is thinking of getting a 01 raptor...Don't.The trannys are known to fail badly.I'm glad some people have compassion for others and don't get a kick out of others misfortunes,It's bad enuf to have spent over 6 grand on a bike and put 3 grand in modifications only to have the thing go down on me in the first lap of a race...then try to get some advice on the net and have people make jokes about it as if it was something to laugh about.Again thanks for the helpful input.

Is this something I should try to do myself or take to a dealer?Btw I'm am only moderately good at mechanical work, I don't really have all the right tools .I know this is a site for 2 wheelers but I ride both a 426F and a 660R and have referenced this site for help on my 426 and found it to be a more mechanically inclined bunch rather than Bluetraxx members who spend most of their time polishing stuff and putting stickers on their bikes. Thanks again

if you know what's going on inside of your engine and what does what, then i say go give it a try yourself. it is VERY gratifying to know that you fixed something that was broke and now it works fine, plus its alot cheaper. and besides if you do screw up, you can always take it to the dealer and have them finish it up

First of all, it's a golf cart not a bike. 2nd, you are on a BIKE site. Bring in any quad related thread, and you're going to get teased. 3rd, stop whining, or at least post your address so we can send you some cheese to go along with it.

I have to chime in here.

When you post with a topic of "anyone" then ask a quad question you are inviting yourself to get hazed/flamed.

Being indignant about it doesn't help your cause either.

Next time I recommend putting something in the subject line so that people who don't want to read about quads are not fooled into thinking it is a relevant post for this board.

Pull the oil fill cap. Smell the oil. If it smells burnt, you fried the clutch. If it shifts and you can feel the dogs engage and there isn't any resistance and the oil doesn't smell burnt, you might pull the clutch cover off and see if the clutch turns when you turn the motor over.

Failing all that, it's shop time.

I can take the flaming just don't get the quad vs. bike stuff? It all seems a little childish to me .I do try my best to be cordial when communicating on the computer for the sole reason that the guy on the other end does'nt have the ability to smash me in the face if I started gettin lippy.Always are gonna be those spineless weasels that hide behind their keyboard and talk smack ,lashing out at the world that rejects them ,they usually keep their head down and their tail between their legs when having to have face to face interaction with someone in person.Hence the "virtual tough guy" Even so I do feel that I got some helpful feedback so go ahead and flame away if it makes you feel better .In closing I wish everyone well and I appreciate again all the constuctive advice.
