PRIMARY

Am going to be pulling my Primary Clutch an reinstalling for the 1st time. Iím wanting to do it so Iím familiar with the process and also hoping it will shift a little better after I reinstall which was talked about in another post by others. The rear shock is right in my way. My electric and air impact donít have room because of the shock. Remove rear shock? Really long extension? Jack up machine? And seeing if you have any tips? And yes I have the clutch puller tool. Machine is a 2019 xp4 turbo S. Thanks all.

Re: PRIMARY

lol. Yeah, take the shock off... I wouldn't even think twice. I like room to work

Don't use an impact if at all possible, run it down as tight as you can by hand, you can use a pry bar between the arms of the clutch if needed, if it doesn't pop off (it probably won't) give it a couple taps with a hammer

218 views and only your reply, which means a possibility of 3 things.... no one cares, no one knows or itís already been explained on another thread that I couldnít find specific to my 2019 turbo s4. So here it is Incase someone else is curious.

Only special tool needed is the primary clutch puller. After removing the belt, I jacked up the rear end to relive pressure on the lower shock mount, removed shock on the bottom only and swung it up and out of the way and tied off with some wire. After I removed the primary clutch bolt I put some grease on the threads of the puller and screwed it in as far as possible by hand. Then put the electric impact on and gave her hell. Didnít pop off, so I put in reverse for a split second and then back forward and POP!!! Then took a small dab of valve grinding compound and spread it around on the inside of the primary where the shaft goes in, then put primary back on the shaft and apply a little pressure while you spin the primary about 10 times to get as close to a perfect mating surface as possible. Then spray some break cleaner on a rag and clean it ALL out of the primary and shaft. Then reinstalled to 96lbís. I CAREFULLY used a framing hammer handle (softer wood handle) that I slid in the clutch housing to keep it from spinning. Put belt back on and fired up the machine to run for a minute or so and then re-torqued to insure it was still at 96lbs.

Put everything back together and low and behold...... IT NOW SHIFTS GREAT IN ALL GREARS. before it was very hard to shift in and out of all gears. Hope this might help someone else down the road because my hand is now cramping from typing so much.

It is at motorworld of El Cajon they just said primary clutch replacement is approved but there is none available and no release date. That sucks. Messing up my next trip.

When I went to remove and reinstall mine awhile back from the thread I started about my shifting problems https://www.rzrforums.net/rzr-xp-tur...ard-shift.html, I actually bought some to do just that. That is something STM recommends doing when installing their aftermarket primary clutch. A friend that is a tech recommended that I not do that, just in case it went in for warranty work, it could cause a denial if it was noticed. So I did not do it and mine has worked fine without doing it.

It was just something I read about online and also heard from a couple others. It makes sense tho.
