Default Changing the secondary clutch spring?

Does anyone have a write-up for changing the secondary spring? Is it doable? Any special tools required?

I'm sure there is a way to replace the secondary spring without a clutch press with the adaptor pegs for the team clutches but I wouldn't try it myself.

You take it to the dealer each time?

No, I have a large selection of tools, the correct clutch press tool being one of them and mechanical ability so I do it myself.

you dont need any special TEAM tools, but you will need a spring/clutch compressor of some kind. I use the same one I used on my doo's from Chris at C&T powersports:

C&T Powersports - Clutch Compressor with Base

I don't have any Team special tools. Just the SLP clutch press with the Team adapter pegs. Works on all Polaris drive/driven clutches and I'm sure even Cat drive clutches.

It's pretty easy, get your c clip speader ready, use something to push down on the steel roller and spread quick

Is the model name for the Polaris Switchback Assault clutch "TEAM"?

Thanks! Also, do you know the torque-down ratings for tightening down the bolts on the primary clutch case and secondary?

I can't find that in the manual...
