    You've actually done this? How do you get the wet clutch to engage?

    Boosting a quad

    FYI: don’t try this with a “sled type” CVT belt drive...like a Popo or a Can Am (Kawi too I think). You WILL burn the belt and it will NOT start. There was much discussion about this a few years back so Andy and I tested it...his Rzr towing my Canned Ham...much grey smoke pouring out of snorkel and no starty. There maaaay have been beer involved....
    Pain or damage don't end the world. Or despair, or f*cking beatings. The world ends when you're dead. Until then, you got more punishment in store. Stand it like a man... and give some back.

    I have been riding since I was 8. I am 46 now. I/we have only ever had to boost a quad on the trail once.

    If it not stone dead it don’t take much to boost cable wise. I boosted a grizzly that was dead using the small cable from a 12 volt tire pump that plugs into the cigarette lighter. Didn’t even get hot.
    No more snow mud now please!

    With a shovel and a hand saw or axe, you can cut a chunk of deadfall, tie a strap around it, bury it, and hook onto it. Size the log according to how stuck you are. This can also work on a lake, you chip a hole at an angle away from your ride, hook up and go. Most snow stucks are traction issues so it doesn't have to be a huge hole or huge log.
