Post Prodrive Clutch
When just drifting around clutch holds but put a load it feels like it slips and won't hold the power. Anyone experience this? If the clutch I saw an aftermarket some where?

When going to get up on step and giving it more throttle it starts high trying without going anywhere.

Hmm.
Have you greased the lower unit lately?
I ask because you could have over greased it and there is grease on the clutch.
Sounds like you may be pulling the powerhead to inspect it. Might have a loose clutch bolt

I saw there is a clutch on amazon I believe.
I think that's the one banded-mallard bought. Its got a bearing upgrade or something.
Or you can order one from prodrive.
Here it is.

Yep that's it. A lot cheaper and direct bolt up.

Call Xtreme direct...make sure you are getting the right clutch. They may want you to measure the crank length.

Hmmm. That may be the wrong one then. I know they started with a heavy duty clutch. Don't know if that matters or not.

I've ran one of their clutches for the past year, somewhere in the ball park of 70+ hours with no problems.

Little update. I cancelled the order with extreme powersports. I talked to their guy and he was not sure if he had what I needed so I gave Nick Peltier a call and ordered the one from prodrive. I did fine out it is the new heavy duty one. I'm ready to get this thing back on the lake. By the way any parts call Nick he is jam up.

New clutch installed and all problems are gone. New clutch was very easy.

Do you mind giving a quick run down of the steps involved in changing it? I've never heard anyone call it "very easy" before, but I've never done it.

Yea not a problem.
Remove the 4 main bolts holding the frame to the motor plate.
I use a chain fall in my shop to lift the motor directly up. Using the chain fall I put pressure on it and give it a shake and then pressure until it lets go.
Once it breaks free you remove the 4 bolts holding the spline adapter on and remove the clutch by applying pressure.
The new clutch came with new clutch holding bolts which had to be out in.
Slide the new clutch on and lower her back down slowly making sure she seats correctly.
Tighten everything back down and test run.
I can get more in detail if you need.
