Hey guys, new to the site. How do I know if a clutch is going. I have an 01 zrt800 with 3300miles and the clutch rattles at idle but pulls good thru the powerband. Any suggestions on the life of the stock clutch? What should I upgrade to?

Thanks in advance

lots of ways

One way is if you start creeping at engine idle. ie belt too tight

Another way is if you feel an engine bog at top speeds, almost feels like a plug fouling.

Another way is if you hear a loud noise and parts of it fly through your belly pan. That happened on my 04 F7. Then it's no longer going, it's gone.

More than likely it needs an overhaul or rebuilding.

Thats never a good way to find out if your clutch is bad

Snatchdaddy be sure to inspect the primary (engine) clutch for cracks on the sheaves as well when you have it serviced.

Hey Guys I have a 06F7 the clutch makes a squeaking noise best way to describe it is between squeaking and squealing, only after the sled has ran for a few minuets and gets warm to hot is when i hear it. My other thought is the crank bearings but it dont sound like its coming that far in on the motor. Thanks for any help.

Is the belt tight? How is the belt deflection? That may be it. Any black on the primary from the belt?

No doubt its deflection is too tight

Trigger finger's getting itchy, so don't entice me....
