My pin broke and damaged the clutch. Can I machine 2 other notches to match and use it?

It’s no different then. The notch you had to do for the heel clickers.

When compared to a heel clicker setup you could machine all three to match but I'd be concerned if it tweaked the sheave. I'd give it a good cleaning and visual inspection. Most importantly confirm the runout is still good.

If it were mine, I'd question what broke it in the first place. That shouldn't happen and truthfully while it may work would you trust it 100miles from homebase ?

The pin broke. It’s common.

I’ll give it all a good inspection. I shut it down the second it broke and did not run it. If everything seems good I’ll machine all three notches to match. As long as it’s balanced should be fine to run.

It’s exactly the same as doing the heelclicker mod.

I'd say you got pretty lucky. same thing happened to my brothers 2011 CFR 800 a few years ago. The pin broke in the same spot, but it dinged up both clutches. Never did find the weight though, and he wasn't going very fast when it happened either.

Yeah I got lucky. Could have done a lot more damage if it had bounced around.

The weight came through there and landed on the trail. I found it. Never did find the broke pin. I’ll search under the engine for it.

Seems to be a lot of clutch issues on some sleds, if it were me I would look for a non-cast aluminum clutch like a Micro-Belmont or others, they are CNC billet aluminum, I've run 1 of those on a 314 HP drag sled for years, it's been flawless, don't take chances with a dangerous clutch type.
