nope. it is supposed to be 100% dry. if it freezes up its usually from the bushing in the clutch swelling up and making the fitment on the shaft be so tight the clutch cant slide back and forth. usually ffrom getting water in the clutches and getting that bushing so hot it swells up and siezes the clutch to the shaft. its time for a new movable sheave when that happens. the bushing is fiber, you cant machine it larger it will trash the whole thing. you cant fix it. you cant replace the bushing. you need a whole new inner movable sheave.

nope they are supposed to slide as smooth as butter. with -0- resistance. if yours is hard, you need to find out whats wrong and fix it or replace it. otherwise you will start burning belts left and right. the secondary spring tension is not strong enough to force the clutch closed if it is binding up. which will leave the secondary upshifted in too high of a gear ratio and cause you to start slipping belts in the secondary like crazy.
