First, disconnect the shock from the trailing arm. Pick up on the trailing and remove the bolt, then push down on the trailing arm and slide your shock out of the way. Then remove the clutch cover bolts. Before you remove the cover, disconnect the vent tube by loosening the clamp. Grab the tube and pull it straight off.
Next, remove the bolt out of the primary clutch and then grab the primary clutch puller tools which can be purchased at SuperATV.com. Tighten the puller until it pops the clutch off the motor. If you don’t have a 27 mm socket, you can use the bar that comes with the clutch puller.
[01:27] Now remove the removal tool and pull the primary off. For this clutch kit we’re installing today, we’re only going to be removing the primary clutch. At the bench, grab the clutch compressor tool which can also be purchased from SuperATV.com. Slide the clutch onto the tool so that the spider side is facing up. Take this portion of the tool and put it on there just like that. Take the nut and thread it all the way down.
Then we’ll use the tool to take the tension off the clutch. Once it’s compressed down a little bit, remove all the 10 mm bolts. Then loosen the tool to relieve the tension and remove the tool.
Before you take your clutch apart, you have to make sure everything stays perfectly lined up like it was when you started. Now mark the spider, lid, and housing so you can line it up later. Then remove the lid.
[03:34] At this point, depending on which clutch kit you have, you’ll need to change the spring out. We’re running the General Performance Kit for a 2016 Turbo, so all we’re going to do is changing the weighted clutch arms. If you did have a spring, you would take your factory spring and discard it, then take the new spring and install it the same way. Make sure you use the retainer here.
Now go through and remove each of these arms from the clutch. Start by removing the bolts. Sometimes they may get stuck especially if there’s a lot of belt dust in there. If it’s stuck, you can use a flathead to work it out or take a punch to push it out from the other side since we’re not reusing these bolts.
With the bolts out, remove the arms. Then reach up inside the clutch and feel the rollers to make sure it’s rolling freely and there’s no buildup or debris. Now that we have all the arms out, we’re going to go through and blow it out with our safety glasses on.
Once it’s blown out, inspect the sheaves for grooves or grime. If it’s dirty make sure you clean it out. If it has grooves, you’ll need to purchase a new primary clutch assembly.
[05:53] Now take the new arms and weights that are already setup and ready to go from SuperATV. Make sure the top portion that rides on the roller is facing straight up like this. Then reach through the tower and slide it right into the groove where we pulled the factory arm from.
Then grab the the bolts from the hardware kit. You might have to wiggle it around a little bit as you push it through. Grab the provided nylock nut and thread it on. Now I’ll show you how tight it needs to be. This is a VERY IMPORTANT part of the installation. If you over-tighten these and it pinches the tower down, it’s gonna cause the arm not to move freely and that means the clutch isn’t going to work the way it should.
It’s not so much tightening as it is snugging the bolt down. It’s nylock so it’s not gonna back off on you. Right here it’s starting to get tight and it’s not real tight but it’s just giving me some resistance. I’m just going to go a quarter turn more.
Now to check I’ll move the arm. It should move freely with no resistance. You should be able to take your allen wrench and move the bolt just a little bit, but as long as this arm pivots freely on the shoulder bolt, you’re good.
Then repeat all these steps for the rest of the arms, then reinstall the spring, and then we’ll get the clutch installed back on the machine. Be sure that everything is torqued to the factory spec, then you’re ready to the primary clutch reinstalled. Loop it right over top of our belt just like this. Let the belt get on the sheave, and put the clutch onto the shaft of the motor.
[08:20] Make sure it goes back as far as you can get it by hand. You might have to shake it and spin it a little bit. Now take the primary clutch bolt and tighten it to the factory spec. Now all that’s left is to reinstall the shock and clutch cover and go through and make sure everything’s fully tightened.
