I'm taking my primary off for the first time, putting marks on to make sure I put it back together straight. I thought I seen someone say when putting a primary back on make sure your clutch side piston is at top dead center. So I wanted to check where it was at before I took it off. I have two 2016 mxz sport 600 carbs. Both at TDC, one arrow on the clutch is at 2 o'clock and the other sled is showing 5 o'clock. Did they move, or were they put on wrong, or does it not matter?

I just made a note on the clutch and the motor to see how it came off. Put it back on to the same spot.

You don't have to "clock" the clutch with the crank. Just slide the clutch on and torque to 70ft lbs. Take a short ride around the yard then check the torque again.
My manual reads 89lbs of torque then take a short ride around the yard, then check the torque again. All engines 89lbs bolt torque 600 and 800

This is the correct torque in my opinion.

There was a thread a couple weeks ago and iirc the a certain year manual is wrong on the ft lbs. but the nm were correct.

Here's from my 2005 manual for liquid cooled engines

And in Joey's(ibackshift) part 4 of his maintenance series he says 70-75ftlbs


Probably close to snapping the clutch bolt at 89ftlb
