Mines needs some lovin, lot of miles on it. Outter cap bushing is little loose.

Looks cheaper to buy a new one than do the maintenance kit .The P85 is the same as the comet 108exp or the 102c?

$260cdn for the kit , or $369 for a new 108 minus spring and weights.

I'd stick with the P85 if it was me. See if you can find e.g. a takeoff clutch from a 800 twin, they have a reinforced sider and cover bushing.

The XCR's and big bore twins are hard on clutches. Not only do the bushings and pins wear the sheeves also frequently get hairline cracks.

The HD Polaris clutch is the way to go but, there no small chuck of change either at $429.

nothing like a P85 see if ya can find a used 800 twin like mentioned the one with the big boss on the cover.. it could be worth the rebuild.. but then again there is NOTHING Like new.. and by the time ya done after purchace and rebuild cost new would only be a few $$ more.. and worth it..

if you're going with a three weight clutch, stay with the Polaris P-85. if you can't afford it, then a Comet 108 is a far second choice. stay away from the 102, it will grenade on an XCR. i put a Comet Quad-pro on mine, it pulls super hard out of the hole with 240 grams of weight.

Don't do a Comet, either use a HP Polaris P85,#1321880, or buy a Micro-Belmont, which can be changed to fit other brands by the removeable center posts.
