Default Sticky secondary clutch.

Don’t know what to call it exactly, but I call it a sticky clutch.

After some on and off throttle riding, and then coming to a stop. I have in the last two rides experienced that the secondary clutch wont close and push the belt to the top. The belt stays about 1/4 down in the secondary, and causes the belt to slip on the primary when im taking off again.
It even has caused the sled to bog and choke out because the primary gripped the belt, and since the belt was halfway down the secondary, the gearing would be to heavy for the speed and rpm.

Anybody else experienced this? My dealer has not heard of anyone else having this issue, but we are on.

Could it be the secondary spring not beeing stiff enough?

A too soft spring could cause that yes.


Anybody know what the stock spring rate is?

Since it is intermittent, i am leaning toward clutch binding. A weak spring is always weak, problems should be more consistent. Where binding would be more sporadic.
My thoughts anyways.

There are definately problems with the secondary's on the 18s

Sno jet's brother has reverse issues.

My sled sticks in low gear on steep descents. Almost threw my over the bars at 40mph when i hit the throttle last weekend, just like hitting the brakes. I have to lock up the track and hit the throttle and BAM! Secondary lets go.

Alpha Cat......

Im having some reversenissues also, reverse fully works on flat surface with hard snow. But if its downhill, or with any snow making resistance the belt will slip and squeal.

I had it happen to me the other day, I was turning around in a tight area on really thick mushy snow. Put it in reverse and forward several times and then I went to take off and it was making a horrible squealing sound. Opened the cover and sure enough the belt was stuck in the secondary. it came out of it but I will defiantly be keeping an eye on it, I keep posted on more info

I'm wondering if this is my weird bog issue too. Happens when I chop the throttle a lot and is usually around 6100 rpm. Hmmm
