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?

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?

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.

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.

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

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.

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
