Stuck clutch!!

Recommended Posts

So a costumer braught in a 2018 general and the damned clutch wont come off.......       I had one of the old style polaris pullers so i packed the shaft with grease and ran the bolt in. bolt got tight smacked it with my purse. didn't budge.   so I had the correct puller ordered and got it in today "Super atv"  greased the bolt shoved it in tightened by hand and what do you know puller bent when hit with impact now its useless so yep thats where im at.   gonna order another puller but i dont see a factory tool.    thaughts?

IS it ok to heat the primary on a polaris?

just kept packing with grease and thread taping the puller after about five more attempts it finally popped with enough force to take someones head off lol. i did not use heat just did the insanity thing and kept trying over and over again. thanks for advice!!

also took everything fron a 1lb hammer to a 10lb sledge wouldnt pop till it wanted to.

Sometimes it just takes a lot of tension and time and lubrication to soak in to get it to pop off. I know the sound, sometimes it sounds like a gun going off when they pop free. I have destroyed pullers by getting in too big a hurry, I have had good luck with the air hammer along with the puller.

      having an issue with the unit when running under a load up a hill or in high gear, seems like the belt is slipping, there is a clapping sound coming from the primary clutch like it releases and snaps back in. i don't think I should have a noise like that. this is a friends unit and he has already replaced the primary twice with the same result.
      not sure where to look next

      The stock driver seat cushion is separated at a seam. I took the seat apart and found that the material has torn and cannot be re-stiched. I'm trying to find a replacement seat. Any suggestions? Hoping for a used seat but couldn't find one on Ebay.

      Hey I have a 1997 big bear 350 4x4
      I replaced the shifter shaft and the shift arm linkage and the rod when I installed them all I was unaware that you had to line the dot on the shifter shaft with the gap on the linkage arm gap put it all back  together and rode it I can't get it to shift in the right gears  I can move the shift cam by hand and goes in different gears but with the shifter shaft in it riding I can't put it in R or N 
      Anyone know how to line up the shifter shaft and the shift cam s

      Got a Big Boss produced 2016 YM 2017 that gives DTC 520 285 2 (random)
      What I understand is correlation code for brakesensors, very little information in workshop manual.
      Removed front plastic to discover that no connector was mounted on the brake pressure switch!?
      The only "brake" information seems to come from the micro switch at the brake lever.
      Does anyone know if Polaris does anything special on the 6x6 or had this issue?
