If you're thinking about putting a clutch kit in your RZR you will need to change the secondary clutch spring, this can not be done by hand, the rest of the kit can be so I thought i would post the way i came up with to do it.
The factory built tools for changing the secondary spring are nice but run about a hundred bucks with shipping. Now if your doing it all the time its the way to go. But for most of us that are going to do it once or even 5 or 6 times then I just could not see buying one. A dealer will charge 40.00 or more to do it for you, so I decided to build one. I paid 10 bucks for everything but a lot of you guys could build it for free from stuff you already have im sure. I t consists of the following;
1 piece of 7/16 threaded rod 24'' long w/2 nuts and 2 washers
2 pieces of 1/2 inch pipe 6'' long.
2 1/4'' bolts 4.5'' long w/2 nuts and 4 washers
one piece of flat steel 4'' long 2'' wide, drill 7/16 hole in center and 2, 1/4'' holes 1.5'' to each side from the center hole.
I wrapped tape around some of the threads to keep it off the clutch splines.
You will as said before need a good pair of heavy duty snap ring pliers.
How to Use;
Remove 4 torx screws on back plate on clutch and remove the helix.
Insert rod with one washer and nut on bottom up thru clutch.
drop on the 4'' piece of flat steel with the 2, 1/4'' bolts bolted to it bolt head down onto the dampener with the rollers, it should fit to the outside of the spring clip.
drop on the two pieces of pipe and a washer and nut and tighten it a few turns till the pressure is off the spring clip, then squeeze it and slide it up out of the grove.
Remove top nut and take the rod out and lift up on the dampener to remove it.
Replacement is the reverse except you must line up the double tooth on the spline with the double tooth in the dampener, its best to mark these before removal, also when installing the helix be sure to line up the X marks on it and the clutch.
This is for the Team secondary like on a 09 S, but it will work the same for
the newer team rapid reaction other than you will have no helix to remove first.
I know its crude but it works! I can change the spring in 5 min. or less, or if you have
a press you can just use the flat steel w/bolts this will work good too.
Build and use at your own risk.
