does anyone know what size socket i need to remove the primary clutch on my sled, looks like its 12 point socket but all the ones i've tried have too big of outside dimension to fit down into the hole. I've tried the 9/16 12 pt. that my dad uses to remove his clutch on his old ZR but its too big to get in the hole as well. Any help would be great! Thanks.

It takes more than just a socket, do you have a clutch removal tool?

And a throttle that points the RIGHT way, FORWARD!!!!

PM me if you're looking for lightweight or diamond drive parts, I can get you discount pricing on BDX parts.

Try a 1/2" 12 point 3/8" drive. But as said earlier you will also require a clutch puller bolt.

Yep, a 1/2 inch 12-point socket is the one you need. You can get single ones in automotive stores (in Western Canada we have Princess Auto stores that have them for cheap) I think I paid four dollars for mine

sweet! They can be a bit** sometimes. I've seen a few broken pullers & plenty of other issues.
