O.K. There are shims on the secondary shaft that allow adjustment of the secondary to be in alignment with the primary.

What is the distance if i'm measuring from a straight edge off the primary's inner (motor) face to the secondary?

meaning, the distance from the back side of the secondary to the back side of the primary?

I put 120 miles on my sled and there was black-belt schmegma EVERYWHERE! Gotta love Green! :angry:

This thing is off somewhere and i'm starting here. :angry:

Thanks.

Mike

So are you saying the "black-belt schmegma" means an out of alignment clutch? I have the same on mine, just assumed its normal belt wear, more so being new. Have always seen it on my new sleds.

Well, typically most people will see more, some less. I think i'm falling into the "More" category, because it shouldn't be that way.

If your clutching is properly aligned you will se minimal belt schmegma! B) if any at all.

Right now i'm at 3/4 in.

Is that right or is it 5/8?...

I never measured one that way??? But I think a lot of the crap could be.....The y-pipe exhaust donut leaks out the side a tad and blows over there, then with the clutch spinning looks like belt crap...maybe.?

My sled has a ton of the "schmegma" on it. I just checked the alignment today and it was perfect. I did notice the residue from the exhaust donut leakon the clutch guard. What dan says makes sense about the oil from the exhaust hitting the clutch while its spining and throwing it everywhere.

I'm going to run a new belt the next time and see what happens then. Maybe you guys are right with the oil and all. Maybe it's the color also. Black and hot green do not mix. :huh:
