So..I stepped off and got a 2005 Rhino. I have one question, this was bought as a hunting vehicle, not going to the river and playing in the mud. The primary sheave is not moving like it should, would a good cleaning and and surface recondition fix this or should I just replace it? If so who would you recommend for a replacement?

I bought a new sheave from Hunterworks and had a local dealership install it. On different subject, I used to think the ethanol in the gas was the reason my '06 Rhino was hard to start after sitting for a month. Turns out this is a common problem. It's not the ethanol. I installed a primer bulb on the fuel line that you often see on boats and it fixed the problem.

They are a pain to start if they sit long. My dads had the 450 since new and I can't remember a time it fired right up when cold. Be prepared for clutches of you work it. Once they start slipping the power isn't there like it should be. Only repairs he's had to do are brakes tires and a clutch in 10 years. Of course a battery too
