Clutch help

My stock drive clutch sounds like a diesel truck, I think it is at the end of its life. At idle the clutch is spinning the belt and driven clutch and preventing any gear shifting unless the car is turned off. I emailed TEAM to see if they still had some of the part numbers I found other members post on the forum, this is the response I got :

"TEAM Industries no longer sells aftermarket to the consumer or provides tech support. TEAM closed its TEAM Aftermarket division last summer. Please check with your local dealer."

I am looking to replace the factory drive clutch with a bolt on replacement that is newer and will work better. I have seen some recommend a Polaris unit. Any suggestions or tips? I tried to read through a lot of the threads pertaining to clutches on here as best I could, still somewhat fuzzy on the subject. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Clutch help

I beleive Pilot has a used "Comet" Primary clutch for sale. Comet's were factory, if you have a TEAM primary, someone put it on. Check Pilots thread on "parts for sale"

Mike at Red Rock is a TEAM distributor I think. He was also a Revolt dealership and can likely get you what you need in regards to the TEAM clutch.

Hope this helps.

Re: Clutch help

Comet Pro 4 are the stock primary clutches. It is normal for them to rattle after about a year of use. The rattle should go away above idle. They can be rebuilt. Some are changing to the Polaris FST clutch that is a 3 finger made by team. They don't rattle when warn but do require a different puller. If you have a 3 finger on your car it has been changed. If your car is not in gear both clutches will turn while the engine is running. Your idle speed may be too fast. Idle speed can be adjusted between the throttle bodies. Your shift cable might be warn out. It should move freely when not connected to the gearbox. We had to put a new one on the Frogger a few weeks ago. You have to pop it in and out of gear quickly because there are no syncro's in the gearbox. Never try and shift it above idle speed.

Re: Clutch help

It has the stock comet drive clutch. The car will not idle below 1400. I have removed the idle screw completely and checked for enough slack in the throttle cable both with no luck. I am thinking the butterflys are gummed up in the throttle bodies. If I bump it into neutral, it will not go into forward or reverse without the trans grinding, so I have to turn it off, shift it, then start it just to be safe, I don't want to hurt the trans gears. When I hear the trans grind, it makes me cringe and I can hear dollar signs pouring out of it haha. The shift cable operates fine, no issues there. Just was wondering if there is a better replacement for the stock comet that provides a little better performance or adjustability. Seems to be a bunch of mixed reviews on what clutch combo to run.

Re: Clutch help

It sounds like you might need to remove the throttle bodies and clean them. If the oil tank vent was connected to your air intake plenum like they came from the factory you probably have a bunch of oily crap in them. I did when I first got my Revolt. You should be able to notice a change in idle speed when adjusting that screw. These things do grind when shifting if you don't do it fast. The shift cables do go bad and the cable ravels so it flexes inside the outer cable housing so yours could be going bad. 2 of my buddies have had to change theirs now. The Comet is a great clutch except for the rattle problem. Comet does make a 3 weight replacement model that is pretty cheap but not rated for as much horse power. The 4 weight is rated for up to 200hp.

Re: Clutch help

I have a Brand new Comet 108 Pro 4 in stock loaded with weights and spring on my shelf if you decide to stay with a Comet...I am also Comet clutch dealer and can get you rebuild parts. I do have some parts on my shelves.

I am a Team dealer and I had spoken to the Team factory a couple months ago and they had told me that they discontinued making the clutch that would specifically fit the Redline application...It is my understanding when the Riot came out Team was working to develop their clutch combination for the Riot for the next production run (according to Team). They never got their hands on the Riot to dial it in...I wonder if that was on reason that primary clutch went by the wayside?...Anyways they also told me that there was another company created that is their aftermarket supply source that I now deal with as a dealer. The factory is straight to OEM only.

Re: Clutch help

Every clutch that was used on the Revolt, Revolt XL and Riot was leftover inventory from the Redline snowmobile company. There were pallets and pallets of them. They were old when the dune buggy factory inherited them. They may have played around with different weights and springs but the basic clutches were all the same outdated stock.


If you ever get a chance to take a look at a Redline Revolt snowmobile you will see many different parts that they shared.

Re: Clutch help

Sidewinder, I always enjoy reading your posts with the insider info!


Mike, I need to get a belt cover and oil change kit, so I will be calling you shortly on those, might talk some clutch parts with you as well.


This forum is slow just because these aren't too popular but the amount of help and knowledge on here is awesome. Makes It a little easier being the lonely east coast guy.
