the original clutches dont really last long whether its the 1st or 2nd editions. the only perfect replacement is in fact the pb80 and will not break again. the problem with installing other clutches like one from a 600ho or even a tra4 is that the shaft that the clutch presses into to the motor is specially tapered to accomodate that design and cut angle. the problem is that they dont fit and leave the clutch loose, vibrating like crazy at idle and eventually snapping the driveshaft! ask me how i know

the motor removal is actually and easy process, all parts are still available through the Seadoo lineup, the motor is identical. i didnt remove the motor myself, i had a tech do it, he told me it took 1.5 hours to get it out. and you dont need to remive the motor to change the shaft

Sure, but are you certain the vibrations were due to dissimilar tapers between the primary and shaft? Is it not more likely that there was a balance issue, or other problem? I can't see why Doo would create a new taper for the Elite.

And when comparing my Elite's primary inner half with a TRA from a 2012 1200 MXZ, they sure look identical. I guess I could have them measured by a machine shop. I have the TRA ready to go on the Elite, so I want to make sure.

Did Ski-Doo confirm the dissimilar tapers?

yes, i blew two shafts because of vibrations, one with a tra4 and one with a edrive 2

hello, to be very specific, i spoke to a tech at CVtech, the company that makes the powerbloc clutch. the reason is because the taper information is not readily available from Brp. upon further investigation we refered to his machine drawings for both the elite clutch and the rev xr and rev xs platforms. we did in fact notice the different measurements in which case it meant that it wasnt a match. and it was quite off. lastly if you want, you can try by installing your replacement clutch, bolt it in, then grab in and wiggle it. guaranteed there will be play

I can look in the catalog tomorrow when I get to the shop, or you can find it online.
You just look at the clutch breakdown for different fixed sheave part numbers.

I thought most later model Doo's used the same crankshaft taper, but I have zero experience with the Elite series.
I sure would like to drive one someday though! :)

not taking any or this personal, just speaking from personal experience, i blew 2 shafts with a edrive2 and a tra from 600ho. they vibrate because the taper is different

Called CVteck.to make along story short,talked to mr Adrian Bernard the founder of the company he tell,s me. That the taper is cut exactly for the taper of the elite.they are Avery big machine shop.they refurbish burnt cylinders for quic turn over.at end of season they pay 20 dollars a cylinder for the bad ones.they cut cames etc.when you order a clutch from them,it comes complete with a new came,54/47 .so a lot of testing has gone on.the only problem I know of are the covers of the 1200 that broke apiece of.recalled .new reinforced covers,no charge.I would think we would have seen this since there are a lot of these clutch,s on the elite,s including mine .want,to know the employe,s name ?????. Merry x mas .

What do you think.a good machine shop verifies everything,even more since it was tested on an elite.you just don't sell clutches with testing along with the new came cheers
