    Overdrive Rollers

    Hello,
    I'm new to the forum; but have a question about overdrive rollers. I have a 2008 Rhino 700 Special Edition. When I bought it the owner told me they had installed over drive rollers. It will run around 62-63 mph. With these rollers installed, will the machine act like the transmission is slipping on the bottom end? The motor needs to spin up quite a bit to start pulling. Once it spins up, there isn't any problems with slipping. The only issue is on the bottom end. I'm not sure what to start checking. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks
    Dave

    No. Its over due. Looking to tear it down this weekend. Will the overdrive rollers cause any issues with the bottom end torque? If so, I may need to change them out.
