Welcome to the Clutching Forum!

I know this forum is new and comes with some “heat”. With that I would like to simply post some reasons why this forum will be helpful to you as a member of Snowest.

1. While the brand specific areas are no doubt great areas to find specific information on your sled and model, these areas usually lack information from members who are very knowledgeably about OTHER sleds, setup, etc. Simply because X-Member who rides a Ski-Doo does not go into the Polaris areas that often and vice versa (When was the last time you Polaris riders went into the Yamaha area? Yamaha riders when was the last time you were in the Cat section?)

2. I know there will be clutch threads in these brand specific areas and that is fine, but by posting your clutching questions or advice in this clutching area you will be sharing with a much larger audience. So while X-Rider might not ride the same sled as Y-Rider, he might still have some info to share that will help riders of all brands with their setup.

3. This are will eventually contain everything from how to properly break-in a belt, places that sell clutch parts, a tools section, setups, troubleshooting, rebuild info, spring rates, gearing information, etc, etc.

Anyone that has positive information to share please contribute. I myself would like to see less “useless” posts. If you like what someone has to say, hit that little “thanks” button on the right hand side. No need to quote the person and comment “great info, thanks a lot”. I like talk as much as the next guy but searching through the thank you posts, to find info can be tiring. Nothing is better than a “coffee cup thread”. These are those threads that we have all came upon and your reaction is “WOW! There is a TON of info here, I better go get another cup of coffee to finish reading all of this”. LOL

Thanks to those who contribute and I hope those that know a lot about clutching jump in and get involved. You know who you are!

You will also see that there have been other stickies in this area for each major brand. Within these stickies you will find links to other threads and areas that we think have some value. There is troubleshooting, setup, and general help threads in each. Remember to browse the other brands for they will contain tips that can be applied to any brand of clutch.

Below are a couple of links to two great books that are helpful to those who wish to learn more about clutching. I have read one cover to cover several times and have the other on order.

Olav Aaen's Clutch Tuning Handbook


Cutler's Clutch Tuning Handbook

Currently not available, not sure when it will go back into print


Also if anyone has anything that needs to be added to this please shoot me a PM!
