In 14 years of doing clutching I never torqued those 6 bolts and never put loctite on them, they don't have loctite from Polaris either.

For that matter I have never torqued the main bolts holding the clutches on either, use a 18v milwaukee and know when to quit.

I have heard horror stories from people torquing all of the above and breaking clutches to breaking bolts

I know the proper thing to do is torque them but I promise I have never had an issue and have gotten tons of calls about part broke from torquing

My 2012 570 had 4.5 hours on the hourmeter when the clutch started slipping and machine wouldn't move. Bolts had backed out due to no loctite or improper torque from the clutch manufacturer. Service replaced the clutch washers and put it back together properly, had no problems with that in the next 2000 miles.

Service manual torque specs for the drive (primary) clutch mounting bolt is 96 ft-lbs; torque specs for the drive clutch spider is 290 ft-lb (Apply 0.4 mL Loctite® 620™).

Maybe this is why the full setup that I bought from you blew up in pieces.

That would a no if you mean you didn't torque it and used a impact wrench,. if so you would be the first and no idea how that can happen, normally either primary has a crack from factory that gets worse and comes apart or water got on it when hot, or some time in the life of it, it cracked then it happened. Or you used a torque wrench and cracked the spider with what you held it with.
