Here it is... (must see pictures attached to get it)

Official Polaris Drive Clutch Holder tool - $80.00

Oh yeah! Hillbilly Fred's homemade drive clutch holding tool - $0.00 (scrap piece of 2x6 and an extra 1/2" carriage bolt)

AND THAT'S NOT ALL...

Once you have something to hold your drive clutch securely in place, you will need something to remove the spider component from the inner clutch sheeve.

Official Polaris spider removal tool - $53.00

Hillybilly Fred's Spider Removal Tool - $0.00 (old crowbar with a rusty cheater pipe)

AH.... But did it work or burst into flames... (or broken pieces)????

It worked! Savings - over $150.00 (when adding shipping)

Indeed, proven technology here at Hillbilly Fred's !!!

Get yours online now for only $19.99 + shipping and we will throw in the rusty cheater pipe FREE! (only kidding about selling these, but... it may be good for a laugh and save other cheap, creative souls a few bucks. :add_twinkle: Gotta love saving money by building your own tools.

On a serious note: The Polaris Service Manual for this bike (a 1999 Sportsman 335) calls for the the spider to be attached to the inner clutch sheeve with 200 ft. lbs of torque (hence the rusty cheater pipe). As a result, I suppose there is a possibility that you could break the outer sheeve arms using my approach instead of the official spider tool. Disclaimers: execute at your own risk and your mileage may vary."
