Question Team rapid response clutch

Hey guys, I'm looking to get a 2016 ZR 6000 RR and I am wondering how many of you have the Team drive and driven clutches on your sled and how you like them?

Also, I was wondering if these clutches have the weights that are held in by a set screw like the Arctic clutches or if they just slide on the bolt? It just makes is way easier to swap out weights ECT.

Thanks,

Blake

they are shit piles. the old set screw is much easier to work with. The best clutches used on a cat procross was the cat big pin and the tss04 used on the 4000rr and xc

Really? I have heard the set screw ones are a pain in the ass to work on and I have heard of that set screw coming out or in some cases breaking.

when you have to hold the bushing and line everything up in the new clutches is a pain compared to the set screws. They also rattle around like a box of rocks. If you are having set screws breaking or come loose your clutch needs a rebuild. The big pin clutch was good clutch until cat started having the cheapest supplier build it around 2012. from 2004 until the procross came out no one bitched about the cat primary.

After one season with them, I can say they work well and are easy to work on. I've had both clutches apart a few times to adjust the weights and clean. the new pins are way better than the set screws.. and they rattle because the weights move freely.

It was 2010 when AC went to the cheaper vendor (when the HO motor came out)

Prior to 2010 the primary was machined, balanced and assembled by Team Industries.
Not sure the date Team started building clutches for AC

There is much debate if the "rapid" part is true.

I went thru 4 primary cat clutches on my 04 F7 so I wasn't all that impressed with them either. The new ones are not hard to work on if you have a little patience with the bolt,spacers,weight part. Longevity? don't know yet, but I'm happy with how they work so far, but of course I changed them after the first 60 mile ride.

Get one of the alignment pins that you put the bolt in that's tapered so it slips right thru the bushings and weights without hanging up, been using one for years. The Team primary is a nice unit (once I shimmed the spider even better), its the new secondary I don't like much.
