Clutch out of alignment at 300 miles!!!
As we continue to do belt and clutch testing on one of our test vehicles a 2018 XP 1000 two seater my clutches were out of alignment and spacing was off.
The question is, did I do it when I made a big jump down at Durhamtown or was it off from the factory.
Granted it was not off by much and it didn't appear to be a big issue but my belt was rubbing the top of the cover at times.
So I used the SDI alignment tool to check it, the tool would not go on, my shaft spacing was off about 1/16" of an inch. My secondary was moving slightly at idle but I could stop it with my hand. The belt was barely touching the outside half of the primary.
The alignment process was a lot faster than the video we have for the tool, I only loosened 4 bolts, put the tool on and tightened back up. Of course I had to take the back cover off to do it.
I didn't put a lock plate on it yet but most likely will.
The whole point I am making is as I get deeper and deeper into belts and clutching I am continuing to learn. Just amazes me that any of them work right!!! LOL
We have been at this 15 years and it amazes me what I still learn.
We don't have church tomorrow so I am digging into some more clutching and belt testing, have several things we are checking out and should have some interesting information after the fact.
Just passing on info.
