Exclamation Check Your Clutch!

My revolt has about 65 hours on it. The clutch has been noisy, but last weekend at the dunes it really got loud. When I got the car back in the shop I took the eight bolts out of the primary cover, took off the belt and this is what one of the pivots for the weights looked like. The nylon bushing was gone out of the weight. The rollers on the spider were also trashed and the nylon buttons worn out. I have ordered a new clutch.
The bottom line here is do your maintainence, blow out the clutch and take it apart and check it before it comes apart. If a weight comes out due to a worn out pivot it could be disastrous. Mike at Red Rock Rails has talked to Redline and they will be soon selling all the parts to rebuild the enitire clutch, not just the weights and bolts. It really should not be hard to rebuild them, you just need a puller and some tools for the spider and new parts. I will probably rebuild the old one for a spare.

re: Check Your Clutch!

Just a side note here, but I'm running the Polaris snowmobile clutch now and it lowered my ET in 75 yards from 5.8 to 5.5 seconds. That's a third of a second gain which is important in hole shotin. I was really unimpressed with the tech guys at Comet, by the Team industries folks went way out of their way, even ordering me a custom cut helix in the pursuit of acceleration... Popo's been runnin the Weber in the snow for several years now.



Edit:
Unimpressed with Comet tech guys, satisfied totally with TEAM folks!! corrected above because I misquoted myself. The Comet guy seemed like a Union worker on coffee break!! Totally conveyed the feeling I was intruding on his precious time......

re: Check Your Clutch!

Klemdotter, how much did the clutch set you back if I may ask? Also when you say "noisy" and got "louder" what kind of noise? ie...squeeling, knocking, rattling......

re: Check Your Clutch!

So a Polaris snowmobile clutch will fit on the output shaft of the engine?

I hate comet clutches. Been in the snowmobile business for ever and the only clutches that seem to last are Polaris and Ski-doo TRA. I don't think a Ski-doo TRA clutch will fit and am new to the Redlines.

I have access to plenty of Polaris clutches. Belt number the same as the redline one or do you have to run a different belt?

re: Check Your Clutch!

Yes, The Polaris IQ touring used a Weber engine for a few years which had me on that path. It works great and Team Industries helped me get it set up. Comet were bungholes in their tech department and TEAM were great, even got me a race sponsorship!!

Polaris Clutch # 1322601
Team Primary Spring# 210135-001
Team Weight# 902034

Uses an EPI clutch puller on the new clutch, the old stock comet puller won't work.

re: Check Your Clutch!

UPdate on PM sent me about my info source. Wa nted to know which Polaris model I used for a reference. Here it is for all of you as well....

I always use for reference the "2007 Polaris IQ touring FST". I believe it came in a turbo and standard configuration.
