you probably put smthin in wrong..were you going by a clymer manual?

high_octane94 05-09-2004 07:27 AM

did you line up the pressure plate with the inner hub? if it was a new clutch did you adjust the rod on the pressure plate?? did you play with the screw at the handle bars?

warrior777 05-09-2004 10:47 AM

yeah the dots are lined up on the hub and pressure plate. It feel like ur just pulling a cable and there is no clutch.

blasterboy88 05-09-2004 11:35 AM

I did the same thing. Make sure the pressure plate is actually going over the basket when the dots are lined up. Did you take the plates out?

high_octane94 05-09-2004 03:33 PM

mine did that and i had to adjust the rod that is attached to the pressure plate

Make sure you put the clutch plates in correctly. The is one pair( one steel/one fiber) that are thicker than the rest. These must go on first, before the rest of the plates, or the clutch wont work propperly.

provided that everything is in CHECK. as stated it may very well be a matter of adjusting things at the preasure plate. very same thing has happened to meself :nod: :nod:

huh :roll: , no way jose ! steel plates are same, and friction discs are same.

Thats what I thought until I replaced the clutch in my nephews blaster. After repeatedlt trying to get it to fully release, I gave up and took it to a local mechanic. I stood there and watched him fix it, took like 5 minuites, and he showed it to me. It was a barnett clutch though, so maybe thats the difference.

I just put a new barnett clutch in my blaster last fall, and I never noticed any clutch plates that were thicker.

blasterboy88 05-11-2004 08:46 PM

Theres one plate that is smaller and it has a lock ring type thing that does in the middle of it

trailboss 05-11-2004 08:52 PM

why is it so hard to part with 30-35.00 for a repair manual, but so easy to part with 30.00 for a friggin degree key??

high_octane94 05-11-2004 09:13 PM

cause some people arent very smart

fortune46x 05-12-2004 11:55 PM

there is a ball bearing that goes in before the rode goes into the shaft check to see that it is in there - its happend to me a few times because it falls out very easily and then you can pull the clutch and it won't work

Pokey 05-13-2004 12:52 AM

Make sure you are following the service manual that I am sure you downloaded!!!!

OK so I don't know how to post my own thread on this site. But I figured if people know the same issue that I am having why not see if I can get a solution.
Here's my issue. I was out for a ride and a I pulled in the clutch and broke the cable. Now with the new cable it feels like there is absolutely nothing there, the little arm that the cable goes to moves, and the shaft that the arm connects to moves. But the clutch doesn't engage, quad was shifting and the clutch would pull in and engage but now I lost it. Haven't had it apart or anything and have never had a issue.

cory52000 06-04-2018 09:55 AM

did you adjust the new cable? is it the correct cable? did you take the arm off to replace the cable? something is not adjusted correctly

I didn't take the arm off , I left everything on the rig, the arm moves all the way until it maxes out and cant move any more. I am now getting a little bit of clutch action when I pull it in all the way but not how it was. I stalled it really hard while I was jerking clutch trying to get started on the hill when the cable broke. So I am temped to take off the c clip on the arm and see if I can adjust it any other wise I know it will be due for a new clutch since it has never had it done before

cory52000 06-04-2018 05:47 PM

i have ran into similar issues with some of the cheaper cables, they were just a little long and i had to move the arm a notch. could be whats going on
