Re: polaris clutch

Yes I think it would have affected performance all day as weight was probably binding prior to seizing up. You are lucky you could ride it out. It must have been pretty easy terrain. I am a firm believer in going through your clutches at least once per season to avoid potential problems like this. If nothing else get a clutch puller for your machine and pop off the primary. Loosen the six bolts attaching the cover on the clutch. Then you can easily clean and inspect weights, rollers and bushings for wear. Check the primary spring for free length at the same time and replace if it has sagged too much. Secondary clutches need to be dissambled also and cleaned up. All you need for that is a pair of snap ring pliers. Try to see which holes the spring is in so you can put it back together with the same secondary tension. Check the cam slider shoes for wear too.
