clutch sticking?

i have a '12 F1100 turbo LXR and the primary clutch is sticking. I have 530 miles on the sled now and the motor will die at times when coming to a stop due to the clutch hanging up. I have 2 years worth of warranty but was curious if it was a simple fix and if this is a common problem. I absolutely want to avoid taking it in unless I absolutely hav to..... the dealer guys here talk down to their customers... thanks for the help

My sled had a stuck bushing in the moveable shiv in the primary. A dealer where I was riding swapped in a new primary and I've been trouble free ever since, 1,500 miles and counting.

Waiting for the local dealer to call me back with an opening to get it in. The sled is rideable, but I don't want to blow my belt and do damage that wouldn't be covered.... Frustrated would be an understatement.

Quick repair, should be in and out in half hour.

Make sure they have a new clutch in so you are not waiting for that when you get there.

Isn't it a shame after all these years that Cat has decided to use these cheap Chinese parts.
My '99 T-Cat has been rode hard and put away wet many many miles and still has all original clutches.
Shame on you Cat!
I was lucky to get a good Procross but after hearing about all the issues a lot of guys are having, I'd don't think I'd buy another one!
Hope your dealer gets you fixed quick.

That's what upsets me the most. The T-Cats will still run with about any sled out there (on smooth terrain of course) and they didn't have the clutch/belt issues that these Procross sleds are having. It's not like Cat doesn't know how to build a sled that can handle big HP, they are just trying to do it too cheaply or perhaps too lightly with the Procross. The ZRTs and T-Cats were known for many things, but being light weight was not one of them. I'm not convinced that the Procross is rigid enough to hold the big hp, but then there sleds like yours that are holding up so it might be. It just seems like there is a lot of BS on these new sleds to help hold them together/stiffen them and it isn't doing any good. It just seems like if it was simply a problem with cheap parts and wrong tolerances, Cat would have fixed these things by now.

Mine's just about at 3k miles and everything is original except 6 idlers an 3 sets of hyfax, even my belt is the original 082. My c to c was spot on from the factory, believe it or not.
My drive clutch moveable sheave is starting to wear so this summer I'm gonna replace it with an stm moveable sheave. I'm gonna replace the chaincase and tcl bearings with quality bearings, franks j-shaft for the old style secondary. I'll install the OSP j-shaft snubber and engine snubber. I'll also install the '14 style clutch venting. I don't have a problem adding the supports and snubbers because I did have to do that stuff to my T-Cat too, but having to upgrade the clutches, bearings, and j-shaft doesn't make me happy. That stuff is all original on my '99 T-Cat. Cat should have used better parts,
I love the way my sled rides, runs, and handles. Every time I grab the flipper it still makes me smile!
It is strange how there are good sleds and bad.

This is my first sled... Ever. It's hard to compare it with anything else but I can say that even with my inexperience, I've have smoked everyone this season. I'm not gonna say anything bad about the sled, it was the first year they were built and we all know there's bugs to be worked out. I had all my friends ride this thing and they all agree, it's the fastest and best handling sled they've ever rode. The main reason I didn't want to take it to my local dealer is because they're arrogant pricks. They wanted $3k more than what I paid up in Wisconsin and told me I had no business owning a sled like that with no experience. I didn't even have one close call this year and last I checked, it's my money. They just really pissed me off. Still waiting to hear back as to when they can get it in too.
