So I picked up another Arctic Cat ATV that's an automatic. Trans doesn't seem to change gears it just winds out one gear to like 40mph. Anyone have a background on these trans's? Want to avoid a nightmare opening up the case or if there is someone you would recommend to look at it.

It's a CVT like a snowmobile. It will never shift gears, just change ratios.

As pipe said, it's a CVT transmission. There are no "gears" simply primary and secondary pullies with a belt. It's all good.

It should still have a series of shifts on its own though shouldn't it?

For some reason I had it in my head they have like a 2 gear Trans. Low and high gear was in my head for some reason.

They do have a LO/HI. However you shift it between them when stopped, one allows you to crawl with more torque multiplication, while the other gives you speed.
