 Gator 4x6 gears grinding

The gears are grinding, and I believe it is because the drive sheave is not disengaging, but I don't know what to do to fix it. Any ideas? Thanks, Father of PMP (Paradise Moto-Park)

Your RPM's may be a little high. The clutch on mine was very sensitive to speed. Try adjusting the idle down for starters.
I think you may be able to hold the brake on too to prevent grinding when shifting. I think the brake connects to the driven pulley.

Already set idle down, brake doesn't stop it either. I don't think the driven sheave (not for sure thats what it's called. the one not on engine) is disengaging when I come to a stop.

PM; There are cams in the hub of the driven sheave that sometimes just get sticky from dirt, etc. If I remember correctly you can see the cams in sort of triangle openings in the hub on the sheave half that slides in and out on the hub. With the engine off and the transmission in neutral spray some solvent, (WD-40 or the like), in the triangle slots while rotating the sheave till it gets worked in good. So far this hasn't been a problem on my XVU, but the HPX and the 4X2 I owned pror the the XUV neede a spray of solvewnt once in a while. Frank.
