Default How to pull primary clutch?

I have a few questions on how to pull off the primary clutch on a 2012 xf 800sp.

1. Will the 2010-2011 clutch puller (p/n 0644-553) work on the 2012 800 clutch?(dealer didn't know!) Is this the only tool I need to pull the clutch to clean the faces? Never pulled one before so just wondering if I need anything else as the instructions mention to use a breaker bar and clutch spanner wrench?

2. Do I need to take off side panel as it looks tight?

3. When reinstalling is there anything else I need to do other then torque the bolt to 55?

If there are any other tips it would be appreciated.

thanks

From what I was told (my dealer) there is a new clutch puller (green) as well the bolt head is a T60 Torx. I haven't pulled mine yet.

Definitely use a spanner wrench if you have one to hold the clutch in place when breaking it loose and re-torquing it.

Speedwerx site shows that the clutch puller kit is the same from last year to this year, so maybe its good to go, and it is the green puller.

Yes, it's the green one. I just ordered one myself. I'll be yanking mine off next week. Going to shove a little more weight in there to get the engagement down. I'm light, so should be able to pull it fine.

Battery impact works real nice for removal and installation of the clutch.

Do I need to the spanner wrench or is there another simple way to hold the clutch in place while loosening and tightening the bolt? Called a bunch of dealers and it would need to be ordered.

Do you own a cresent wrench and use it often??? The are other tools you have laying around that could be used i.e. drift punch, strap wrench..... But if you answered yes to the first question you dont need the proper tool laying around. It is not mandatory tool use the holder but is a little nicer to have.

No need to remove the clutch to change weights. You can change weights and springs right on the sled. You could put in a lighter spring to lower engagement.
