How to change clutch weights arctic cat

Changing clutch weights on an Arctic Cat snowmobile is a crucial task that requires careful attention to detail and the right tools. By following these five simple steps, you can optimize your experience and ensure a successful outcome.

Here’s how to do it:

  1. Gather all necessary tools, including a socket wrench set, torque wrench, and new clutch weights that are compatible with your snowmobile model.
  2. Remove the clutch cover by loosening the bolts with a socket wrench and pulling it off, setting it aside for later use.

  3. Loosen the bolts holding the old clutch weights in place with a socket wrench and remove them, keeping track of which weight goes where.
  4. Install the new clutch weights by reversing the process, placing them in their respective locations and tightening the bolts with a socket wrench. Use a torque wrench to ensure the bolts are tight enough to prevent the weights from coming loose.
  5. Replace the clutch cover, aligning it properly and tightening the bolts with a socket wrench.

It’s essential to check your clutch weights every 10-20 hours of use and replace them if necessary to avoid damage to your snowmobile’s transmission system. While you can change the clutch weights yourself, it’s always a good idea to consult your owner’s manual or contact an Arctic Cat dealer for guidance.
