So you still need to buy weights and a spring for this clutch. Wonder what that will cost? And how hard will it be to figure out the tuning and if the springs and weights will be sold as a kit or individually?
Team makes the factory Polaris clutches, the QSC is a factory Polaris clutch with a different stationary sheave and custom cover so that it will fit in the Can Am. So that is why it looks similar. This clutch has a different end cover than the usual Polaris clutch I believe, probably so it will fit in the belt cover. Should be very similar in performance to the QSC I would think. I'm surprised we haven't heard much about this lately.
Ya pretty much, I'm sure once they are out the people selling them will have setups for them. I expect it to be like the QSC except their Rooster weights are different than the QSC made weights, so it's hard to say how they compare.
Sure do I bet more then canam does but atleast there's is smoother on take off and can handle more hp its just going to wear out sooner then the canam clutch Around 4000 to 5000 miles the popo clutch needs rebuilt
TEAMs casting techniques have never been the best. I see at least one polaris 900 clutch blown to pieces a week, i have seen half dozen of the new wildcats with cracked or busted sheaves. The casting is extremely porous, and extremely brittle. Team makes the castings terribly thin to minimize weight and rotating mass to help with the motor creating faster inertia of the clutch. with these thin castings i see alot of problems. The TEAM clutch is a junk pile on a stock machine. i have had take-off clutches straight off a brand new machine after i install a complete new clutch setup, and seen as much at .012 of sheave wobble from the center bushing being so sloppy. i have NEVER been impressed with the quality of the TEAM clutches. in my eyes they are a cheaply made thrown together hunk of funk. they do absolutely work, but they will beat themselves to death on a can-am. i look for the clutch to have a maximum of 2000 mile lifespan unless they got smart and put rubber o-rings under the graphite slider bushings in the spyder. otherwise the can-am engine is going to beat those sliders up and they're gonna start cracking the spyder. i am sure TEAM has it all figured out, but they have not had the best reputation for the highest of quality. they have a reputation of being the cheapest and thats why most OE manufacturers choose them, not because their clutches are good, its because they're cheap.
