for the skidoos. They are lube free clutches. Worst thing you can do. The lube attracts all the belt dust and whatever else that will stick to it
Lube free clutches ..No such thing.lots of moving parts in a clutch and they work better with lube ..which all the manufacturers sell. When a clutch is spinning centrifigul force slings everything out and away ..nothing will stick to it
All the clutches on all the sleds are a similar design ..most are or have copied comet

When clutches get a few miles on em the springs get weak ..Replace em ..If you want a more aggressive backshift get a clutch kit with heavier springs and correct wieghts ..Lube the buttons on the towers and the outside of the secondary helix ..

You talking about the big springs on the front of the clutches or the small ones inside? I know very little about clutches.

The big main spring ..usualy a colored spring so you can tell what tension it is ..Thats the spring that forces the primary clutch to close ..Theres one in the secondary too but you usually cant see it .. Back shifting is done by those springs forcing the clutches to close ..IE weak spring = poor backshift

I know the springs you speak of!!! And as I'm told by some sledders, they are not that hard to replace, and are relatively cheap.

for the record. Skidoo clutches are lube free. see following text from manual. There is no need to lube a skidoo primary or secondary clutch. I don't see why you would lube a clutch. It just attracts belt dust and other foreign materials.
