Did you find the problem with the rider slipping when going down hills, I have one that is doing the same thing, I changed the belts, but that still did not help. It does not do it going up hils in forward gear, or going up or down in reverse. Thanks Bob

You have to adjust the tension on your belt, or if there is no adjustment you may need to replace the tension spring, or possibly the belt is worn to the point of excessive slipping.

Gutless on hills....only 60,000 miles

Usually a problem such as yours, there are 2 areas of concern:
  1. Transmission slipping - if the transmission isn't kicking down to provide power on hills, you may have a slipping problem. Transmission fluid and filter should be changed every 30k. Could be low on transmission fluid or the fluid could be old and/or burned (will be brown instead of purple)
  2. Fuel obstruction - common fixes for a fuel problem are fuel filter, clogged fuel injector

Transmission is slipping getting into gear. It

How many miles? Ever had your transmission serviced? The cheapest way to determine if you need to have your trany replaced is to change the fluid and filter. Also add a quart of good transmission additive. You may want to try the no-slip additive first. Either way it will cost you about $80 if you do your own work.

Is it a standard or automatic transmission? If standard, your clutch may be slipping. While driving down a straight road, push the brake while still in gear and push the gas pedal as well. If the engine slows with the vehicle, the clutch isn't slipping. If the engine speeds up while the vehicle is slowing down, the clutch is slipping.
If it is an automatic, check the transmission fluid. You may be low and the transmission is slipping while under load, or the torque converter is slipping for the same reason. You may have a bad torque converter clutch switch, but the computer should have picked that up and made your "Check Engine" light come on.
These are the main reasons you would be losing power going up hills unless your engine isn't powerful enough to handle the larger tires on extreme hills. (It takes more power to turn a larger wheel going up hill since the vehile has to travel further for each revolution of a larger tire. Incidentally, have your speedometer checked. You will be going faster than what the speedo says since you put larger tires on.) Good Luck.
