Got a 05 600sdi and was wondering if you can/should use the factory clutch bolt when using the water method to remove the primary clutch? Should i replace the clutch bolt or is it reusable , and whats the torque spec when reinstalling ?

Thanks

I have a 01 800 motor that someone put a polaris clutch on... I can't for the life of me get it off with the water trick. Any ideas?

make sure there is no air in there

 

tighten it up and leave the sled out side overnight so the water freezes and pops the clutch

Make sure to use adequate teflon tape and it should pop.

Try using the yellow tape for natural gas, it is a bit tougher than the white tape. When I tape the bolt it has just enough room to barely fit into the clutch.

I like the water trick better from what ive seen and less chance of doing damage to the crank.

I work on Doos for a living and almost never use the puller over the water method.  About the only time I use my puller is to separate the TRA7 governor cup off of the fixed sheave so I don't damage a good clutch bolt by whacking on it with the BFH.

I use the water method on every brand of sled I work on.  Why you might ask...no risk of breaking the puller off inside the clutch, no risk of damaging the threads inside the crank, no risk of damaging the internal clutch threads......and it flat out works 10X better than a puller.

From the pro above to this newbie, I did not like how tight I had the puller and how much I was tapping on it. It did not come off so I attempted the water trick and I could not believe how much better that worked!!!

(Assumes you have a safe way to get the sled on it's side though. . .)

I would rather be cheap than have to post a  "Puller broke off in my crank now what"

I've used a puller on four different motors....583, V1000, 600 Rev, and a 600ACE. Multiple times on some of those. Never a problem. I must be lucky.

I don't want to jinx it but my BRP puller has worked for the past 13 years. I agree that the water trick works better but I see it as pain to flip the sled over.....which I'd have to buy a steering pole stick to hold it........then water......then the tape......then the pulling of the clutch and lastly flipping the sled back down. Maybe I should reconsider before I break a pulller though. Ha!

When I lay the sled on its side I use a bucket under the handle bar.  I have seen the stick and really liked how easy it was to use.  I might make one now that I think about it.
