Better late than never, I finally got my hands on one to check out. Honestly the castings and machine work are beautiful.
Here are a couple pictures with my guess to how it works. The water marks are my little experiment to see how far these pics travel around the internet.

Cover off, spring out shows the bolts holding the spider on, and holes that the weights come through
367932





Plastic washer that spring cover hits at full shift, to keep sheaves from wearing on each other

367933




Spider off, shows the snap ring that the plastic washer rests on, and the steel nut that retains the idler bearing, and gives the spider a place to bolt to

367934



Closer view of the spider, the buttons are in their own little carrier, that rides on a pin, retained by a roll pin

367935




Bottom view of the spider, the carrier for the buttons is free to move on its pin, and the rollers are easily changed by removing a small retaining screw

367936




The weight, washers, retaining screw, and pin. The bushing, and roller surface are quite wide. Notice the notch to clear a rib in the moveable sheave. This clutch is off an 800, and runs a 66g weight. The pivot pin is further from the crankshaft, allowing a lighter weight to apply the required force.

And a close up of the moveable sheave showing the casting rib that the weight notch goes around

Krom, is this something that can be retrofitted to other models? I have a 2018 turbo 998…. With a “not yet cracked “ primary. Lol. Was looking at the STM’s and the TAPP as a future replacement but I would assume this would be a cheaper alternative ?…. IF, it’s legit and will work? Your thoughts ??

Excellent Krom!
No more grunt tool to remove spider?
I'm guessing the 6 spider fasteners are maybe 20ftlbs tops?
Looks like all wear items, buttons, rollers, etc, are much easier to service than before.
Thanks for sharing.

Krom - post that on H C S too. You know it will show up there anyway. Get the credit where due for posting.

Wow. Thanks Krom.
This thing is a whole new direction.
I really like how some of the parts are servicable. I'm also a fan of using lighter weights. I never liked throwing so much rotating weight.
The movable sheave and spyder are quite the assemblies. Interesting that it is actually lighter.
It is pretty cool to see one apart.

It will be a direct bolt on for a stock 998, ctec2 600, and 800. Can't say anything about the price or performance yet.

Thanks for the info Krom, I was going to start a thread pertaining to the new primary...you beat me to it dude! Now I know what’s going to be driving my ‘22 Zr 600RR, no more belt dragging on the top of the brake calliper and belt tension will be maintained at all times. Sweet report and explanation of the new primary!

Well done and welcome back, Krom.

I hope it's as durable as the Team primary...
Sure hope it isn't that bad. I've warrantied more of them than any other in the last 20 years.
First time I tried one it seized while the sled was warming up on the trailer. Ruined a weekend out of town

I might have to see if it will be a direct swap for an 2018 ZR8000

yup, will bolt right on using same weights and spring as a 2022
My understanding is that it is the same belt too. Is that correct?
I wonder if any changes would be needed in the secondary?

Yep, belt is the same part number but the factory recommends a new one, no other changes needed.
I'm not sure about the bolt and washer yet. Hopefully they will be shorter, but this is the only one I've seen

New clutch will make removing the belt easier, space between clutch and belly pan is more spacious…cool because l check my alignment every 3 times out. I doubt that my alignment bar will be of any use anymore, for a‘19 Zr 800; unless I can buy just a new plug.

Wonderful. I've had 3 cracked Team primaries in 6000 miles on '17 ZR9000! I hope this is the answer. Team recall and warranty claims must have finally hit home at Cat! Not to mention the most important issue which is all the exploded Team primaries where people have been hurt!!! The Consumer Product Safety Commission official actions (requiring Cat to address the exploding Team clutches) likely had an impact. Whatever it takes is my position. Let's hope this new clutch is better from a safety standpoint than the Team it replaces.
