Anyone change out their stock Polaris clutch for an aftermarket? The price I was quoted for a replacement for my Sportsman has me looking to alternatives to save some $$$. I figure I have a couple options...buy new or buy used.

I've seen CV -Tech clutches...trailbloc and power bloc for 399-449...which is 1/3 off the factory clutch pricing. Any opinions on this stuff?
I have a good friend who can get me a used one for less than that too, just weighing my options and talking (typing) out loud.

I had a CVtech Trailbloc on my Scrambler 500.
It was great (made in Canada too).
Scrambler is non-EBS clutch so not exactly the same as yours

Well at almost 1/2 the price of the Polaris clutch, that might be the option. Yes mine is EBS, and I'm not looking for "sport" performance..just the same old, same old...without the $$$...LOL

Well I finally got off the pot and ordered a replacement clutch - a CV Tech Trailblock. Also picked up the puller tool from Royal Distributing during the tent sale. Clutch is enroute from wherever it is and I should have it next week. I thought I'd ask some basic questions before tearing into this this week.

Is clutch removal that easy..insert clutch tool and turn? there was something on the invoice about hitting tool with a hammer.

This is a simple, straight forward swap?

It usually comes off easy with an impact wrench.
Use lots of anti seize or grease to lube the puller thread.
PS: the trailbloc clutch uses a different puller than the stock clutch

If the clutch puller won't pull it,
sometimes it takes a lot of torque to get it to pop off,
with the puller torqued you can add some heat & they'll pop off.

That's good to know about the Trailbloc and puller...it's the stock Polaris clutch that's coming off....soon.

What do you do if the clutch wont come off? The instructions I have say to tighten and then hit with a hammer. Sounds pretty rough, but I tried it...not budging. Do I need to tighten more??
