Thanks for the clutch DH i made a socket for the spider and used (dont laught) a hub assembly to seperate the two sheaves, i had the wheel bearing in a vise so it had 5 teeth holding the indside sheave on the studs from the hub then used 2 clamps to secure sheave to the bearing so not to slip, then the socket i made on a 1/2 inch breaker bar with an extension pipe it took alittle muscle but the spider spun off!!
Incase you ever had to do one by yourself, im gonna make something alittle diff and mount to my truck incase i ever need it but i can be done with out Dealer tools!!!

well i drive by your rode every weekend bro, i can drop off the one i made and explain what i would do alittle diff and pick it up when your done, but its really basic. If anything might run 15 bucks at most or see if your buddys have anything that you dont laying around. Can i pick your brain one one thing about the weights, i have a brand new set of weights off diff polaris not the one I showd you but they have diff #'s and wanna c if you know if they would work or just destory my clutch

ohh sorry road!! but the weights from you were 10/M weights i had are 10/A and the new set i got from a buddy only have Q on them, M-A are pretty similar A is alittle slightly thicker, Q is skinnier and alittle taller at the tip where it would meet the spider. Any thoughts on that they all match up mounting wise and length wise just the thickness and the tip is diff

They are each different grams. And they are different in the tip. Middle. And bottom so if you go too heavy of a weight your motor will not make any rpms. Just cuz they look similar doesn't mean they are

So if i go to light when i start the sled it would just take off on me correct, well i have the kill switch installed now but in theory, lighter weights engage the clutch heavier weights make it harder to engage?

No. The primary spring changes engagement. If you go lighter weights than the sled requires you will over rev motor and be out of power band. Heavier weights will make the motor not rev enough thus it will be a pig and won't make any power. The difference in weights controls how clutch will shift out at what rpm depending on were the gram weight is at on each weight

It's a combination of spring and weights.
A lighter weight will make the engine rev higher to engage the belt. heavier will lower that.
Then you have to look at the peak RPM and adjust the secondary spring tension to keep it from over revving.

thanks for the advise, i think for right now till i do more research im gonna get it back to the orig drive and secondary clutchs, once i know alittle more about it all then i may play with it to make it alittle quicker and all that good stuff for what i paid for it, its gonna make a good learning sled for working on it... So next season i will def buy something newer and doll it up.

Thanks for all the advise guys glad i joined the forum
