Anyone ever run one of these primary clutches ? Have to replace primary on a 2004 sportsman 700 twin. They are about $200.00 less than OEM

Older thread but wanted to respond about the CVTech primaries... I put one on my 2011 Polaris Ranger 500 EFI about four months ago. Biggest thing for me is that the primary (stock) used to engage (start moving the UTV) at about 1500 RPM. With the CVTech it is more like 1900 RPM. The clutch was ‘calibrated’ by the shop I purchased it from, based on what CVTech had provided the shop. Anyway, I don’t like that it engages so late, so now I have to order another weight kit ($25) and goof around with that. Not really impressed too much. CVTech isn’t that easy to get a hold of either. Sooo, if I could do it again I would just do a stock primary, but it depends on what you are trying to accomplish I guess. I will repost once I receive and install the heavier weights in the CVTech.

So another follow-up to my CVTech Trailbloc primary clutch adventure. So now CVTech tells me to try another spring and hold off of the heavier weight installation. But in order to pull the CVTech clutch, I need a CVTech puller, cause my Polaris puller won’t work. So all in all, so far I’m into this for the CVTech primary, a CVTech puller, a CVTech weight kit, a CVTech belt, a free CVTech spring and I still don’t have a properly operating clutch. So if anyone wants my opinion of CVTech, PM me. And I thought buying from a Canadian manufacturer would be a good idea...

Just another update. Installed the new lighter spring and it works much better. Would be interesting to try the original heavier spring and the heavier weights but just going to leave it. Guess the moral of the story is if you are going to go with a CVTech primary, make sure you get some extra parts (springs and weights) so you can tune it yourself. Seems like a good and simple design otherwise.
