Question Clutch Kit install $ Phx area

Who has the best deal on clutch kit installs in the valley? How much do I save if I already have the plastics and fuel tank already removed?

I was looking at my clutch belt and by going through the top view cover I can see that my belt has about 2" of movement and it sits very loose in there.

Do it yourself and save the money. Between our videos and Magellan's (another member) you can do it.

I saw Megallan's and he made it look pretty easy. Now, I just have to purchase the clutch tools and an air compressor. I was thinking about letting the dealership do it when they replace my broken rear axle.

I can't believe that the axle broke from trail riding and getting stuck in a sandy creek bottom.

The tools would be cheaper than what they would charge and then you would have the tools forever. You will be going back in there to adjust your belt at some point and the charge will be the same at your dealer.

Smile Almost convinced

So to adjust the belt for slippage I will have to buy shims to take up the slack. Is that correct? It is not like the Rhino with an adjustment screw to tighten up the loose belt. I just watched your video on how to measure Belt Deflection and my measurement is 48mm. Using the 1 finger pressure adjustment like you did. 26 hours on the Teryx and I already have 48 mm on the belt. I did smoke it once in the creekbed which also somehow snapped one of my rear axle shafts.

Actually you remove shims on the Teryx and there is no belt adjustment on the Rhino. The screw I think you are talking about is used to spread the secondary sheave apart on the rhino to be able to install the belt.


Best way to check belt deflection is to look how the belt rides in the secondary sheave, belt right at top or slightly over good, below bad.

So, I might not need to purchase a new belt just yet? mine is riding on the top of the secondary right now as it sits with no pressure applied to the belt.

My friend's Rhino now has 5600 miles on the original belt and it runs great. His is the 660 model and it will pull away from my Teryx.

Belt sits in the following locations while the motor is not running
Loose - Primary at the top of the discs, Secondary all the way down on the shaft.
By deflecting the belt all the way down - Primary there is 5mm disc space showing, Secondary all the way down on the shaft.
The belt is currently 27mm wide.
