1996 polaris xplorer 400 clutch cover

Recommended Posts

The centrifical clutch cover on my 1996 xplorer 400 4x4 has been vibrating alot lately an now the clutch housing inside has been rubbing the cover while idling. I took the cover off an its not cracked an the belt will need to be replaced soon but still very useable. If i manually pull the housing out away from the engine while it runs it doesnt rub but if i let it go on its own it rubs. Is there a bracket behind the whole case on the motor that maybe wore or the rubber gasket inside the housing spueezed too much over time that the cover is now too close?

My father-in-laws was the same way he has a polaris scrambler 500 and we just replaced the cover from ebay. I think is what happens is that it was once heated and heat will shrink the housing so that is the knowledge that i had found please let me know how u make out.

I was thinking the same, has it got really hot? Possible it has been warped a bit from the heat over time.

i have had the same problem with my 94 polaris 400L... turns out my inner clutch cover was old and worn out and it had play in it....besides that the engine had a broken mount so it vibrated a lot which caused the cover to move an rub up against the primary clutch which just hacked my cover to bits.

motor is tight an no broken mounts so must be the age of the cover . the clutch only rubs when its idling.

      got 7 atvs off CL recently for a good price.  one of which is a yamaha warrior.  anyone know where the vin is printed on this bike?  Haha good place to start as I do not know year or size yet.  The former owner says needs exhaust ans and clutch work.  he said it ran fine until the clutch cable broke and then I couldn't get the new cable adjusted right and it would grind gears.  things I see:  clutch cable locked up again, no brakes, carb leaking (green with algae around the bowl and has gelled gas stalagtights on it), aftermarket exhaust melted the airbox so I need something different and a new air box.  I would like the use the current exhaust if I can but I have a feeling its a redneck fix as it looks like there is an ace bandage holding it to the exhaust pipe (its an aftermarket slip-on exhaust), so I'm not sure about that- lets get the bike running first.  also, battery (looks brand new, what a shame) is dead, 0 volts.  Otherwise, bike looks to have not been wrecked, and plastics are ok (it sat outside under a 'tarp' for 3+ years since it was run last).  any tips and advise on where to start first would be awesome as this is my first clutched bike (manual).
      the clutch is my main concern- I've never rode a clutched bike so I dont even know what its supposed to feel like.  lol I'm spoiled on my automatic polaris

      Hi everyone,
      I have a question, if the starter clutch gear looks fine but is still not working correctly then all I should need to replace is the one way bearing, right?
      thanks,

      Trying to change front wheel bearings. I removed the cotter pin and castle nut. Hub won't budge. Is there an additional retaining clip? Seems to be one of those push on type that barbs on the thread of the spindle. How do I remove it?

      I am having an issue where it sounds like the gears are slipping if I hit the throttle really hard and also after letting off when the engine brake is applied. Also, the drive train that goes to the front also rides again the gear shift box. I will attach pictures and a video here shortly.
      Thanks in advance!
