Question How to remove primary clutch?

I blew my primary clutch last year and i just tried to take it off this week. My sled is a 1995 Formula MX 470.
I used the clutch puller to get the clutch loose on the crankshaft but when i try to slide it off their isn't enough room between the crankshaft and the body. So you can't get it off. Does anybody have any ideas on how I could get it off? Any Ideas would be a great help.

your going to have to remove the outer half of the clutch then pop off the inner half with the puller.

You should be able to unbolt the side of the tunnel and spread it a little. Look near the footwell for the 10mm bolt that holds it in.

Question "bump"

Newbie..and bringing up an old thread but....how the hell do you get the primary clutch off the crankshaft on a 1997 MXZ 440....I have the outer part+the spring off and still can't get the sheave to come off. There is no room between the body and the crankshaft..I need about 1 1/2" until it will slip off!?

I have taken the two bolts out of the body that are close to the hood latch and still can't bend the body out enough to slip off the clutch??

Thanks in advance for any help!

it won't slide straight off the crank,you have to pull it up as you pull out.
