I found the clutch kit on the grizzly to be pretty easy.  I didnít mess with the primary though.  I only pulled the secondary off and apart.  I did new spring, weights, I slugged the wet clutch and ultimately ended up shimming it as well to get the belt to ride a little deeper for more torque because I didnít want to send the sheave out to be milled. The side by side gave me a bit of a hard time and that was a direct secondary swap with all new parts.  I donít remember the problem I had though.  Probably because it was cold and dark and I was out of town when I did it.

In the end, I probably should have fond aftermarket market for the secondary at least for now.

I did the primary clutch kit so arms and spring and then also replaced all the rollers which was a pain.

The secondary got a new helix and spring. It was just a major pain to re-install. It took everything I had to compress the spring and get the bolt in to hold it on.

I was confusing primary and secondary.  Iíve only messed with the primary on all of my machines.  Like I said with my SxS, I got an entire assembled replacement.  I went with Adam at Airdam.  I have no idea if heís still around.  Iíve been out of all of that for a while.

The aftermarket like STM or QSC are really good clutches. It makes zero sense to me why Can Am built them this way, other than to feed the dealer with work maybe. 

It all loaded up in the trailer, we are going to attempt to go for a ride tomorrow.

Well, you guys sure would have had a good laugh at my expense today!
Got a little too brave and ended up paying the price. We took the trailer and quad out to a local off road area today. The fun happened when I attempted to climb a very icy hill. I made it up the one before just fine and figured I would push my luck. Unfortunately I did not bring my chains like a smart person would!

Made it most of the way up and then stopped and then started to slide backwards. Totally jackknifed the trailer and then had to figure out what the heck I was going to do. After looking things over, I found a tree to hook the winch rope to and then used the winch to pull up and straighten out. Then pulled the bike out of the trailer. After quickly realizing the road was much of the same a head, I used the winch as an anchor while letting it out and backing down. As I couldnít really steer against the pull of the winch, I had to use the quads winch to pull the trailer straight a couple of times.

After doing three cycles of resetting the winch cable as I went down the hill, I got to somewhere I could turn around.

Iím VERY thankful for the ADD bumper, it took the hit like a champ and didnít flex, so the truck body was un harmed. The trailer took a sizeable dent, so Iíll have to fix that. All in all, it was a bone head move, but at least I had enough gear to get out of it by myself.

A couple nice guys controlled traffic while I took care of the mess.

But we did get a little ride in afterwards, which was nice.

Ouch, but that could have easily been a whole lot worse. At least the kids look like they had fun!

Man Iíve made so many boneheaded moves, I feel for ya.  Those moments of regret.  Looking at that actually gave me that same feeling Iíve had many times.  Just wishing I would have done something different. 

Iím glad you got out and had some fun though.  Youíll fix it and forget it soon enough.

We couldnít get Juliette off the bike. Heather had to drive her around while I aired tires back up and got things ready to leave.
They were oblivious to my stress and anxiety, so that was good, lol.

I felt like such a dumbass as soon as I realized we couldn't even stand on the road without sliding down the hill. All well, lesson learned. I'll take my lumps.

My nephew is frightened of anything loud.  My sister has ruined that kid.  Heís 7 and he is afraid of the go kart my dad built him.  Afraid of the four wheelers and the SxS.  Heíll ride in the SxS but only if you tell him to and he doesnít seem all that thrilled by it.  Doesnít care about the tractor.  Hell, me and my dad want to teach him gun safety and how to shoot but my sister wants no part of it and if he sees a gun he runs out of the room.  Give him an iPad and heís a happy camper.  So I love seeing stuff like this.  Itís exactly what kids should be doing.  Getting outside.  Getting dirty.  Interacting with others. 

On a side note, my SxS has been sitting for a while.  Last time I moved it I had a check engine light come on.  Finally got around to looking at it.  Itís a code for a knock sensor.  Going to swap them and see what happens.

Knock sensors are pretty common from what I was told. Make sure everything is clean on the mating surfaces and sometimes they use a special silicone where the sensor mates to the head.

Maybe something for next year, but we went and had a look at the new Yamaha Wolverine RMAX 4. It checks every box we need and isn't as long as a school bus. I think having the quad and a SxS will be ideal for what we want to do.

The RMax are nice.  Those rear seats are awkward but seeing as you wonít be reckless with the kids it shouldnít matter.  Youíre right though.  All the others are limousines.  Iíve seen a few RMax on the trails.  Never in action though. Mainly just passed them going in other directions.  Iíve never heard anything bad about them.  Definitely not a crazy turbo model like the others have out but you canít match Yamahas reliability.

For its purpose, not really worried about needing a bunch of power. Just want something that fits in the trailer with the quad, had 4 seats and reliable.
