2012 550 Wet Clutch and Drum Replacement

I was experiencing clutch slip on my ATV and needed it for a ride very soon so I brought it to my stealership (reluctantly). I was told that the internal clutch was worn. Got a list of parts that needed to be replaced. Got quoted about $1000. I can't afford that. I looked at the parts list and I need the clutch cover seal 0830-244, clutch drum seal 0830-189, internal clutch 0823-484 and clutch drum 0823-556. I also need an oil change. The clutch cover gasket was replaced when I rebuilt the engine and it doesn't even have 500km on it yet, so I think I will be able to re use it.

I checked eBay and could only find used stuff and I was wondering if anyone knows any aftermarket manufactures that sell the wet clutch and drum. Or any places I'd be able to get them cheaper. I checked epi and speedwerx and could only find clutch kits.

Did you put the wrong oil in to cause the clutch to start to slip? You should be able to reuse teh clutch cover gasket if not just ditch it and use rtv. Somehow i cant see needing a new drum just the clutch packs they are what go. I found their was little aftermarket support for the smaller machines and it was cheaper to order from arctic cat online. Their was a ebay seller that was selling new old stock he had new drums and drums with some really low KM on them.. sorry don't remember the seller.
Personally i would pull it apart and verify you need a drum before ordering its the only way to tell if you need a drum

+1 with inspecting it first. You might be able to just replace the shoes and get the drum turned.

I used Arctic Cat oil from my dealer. I did see someone on eBay selling new clutch packs, the other sellers just had the whole wet clutch assembly and it was more expensive than from Arctic Cat. I will inspect it first.

Got the clutch cover off. Anyone know the sizes of the nuts for the primary clutch, secondary clutch and internal clutch? I tore down the engine at school so I had access to pretty much anything I needed, but doing this at home so I only have my small socket set.

I remember using an impact to remove the nuts, remembering the internal clutch nut is left hand thread. Iíll have to borrow and impact off a buddy or something. But what should I do for installing them? In the service manual they donít show a holder or anything for the primary clutch nut and internal clutch nut torquing just for the secondary clutch nut.

They have red loctite on them so use heat and an impact.
Impact them back in with the same gun using red loctite

Found a used internal clutch on eBay for around $100 with shipping. Apparently only 945km on it.

The primary and secondary nuts are different sizes on mine, I know that for sure. Just donít have anything to measure them, but I am confident that they are 36 and 32. The wet clutch nut is the same part number as the 07 650 so I know that that is 22mm.
