Wet Clutch Problems

Has anyone had problems with the wet clutch on the 660?
How long should they last?
Whats the chances on the extened warranty covering it?
Anyone know where I can find a cheap one?

I have an 07 with 123 hrs on it. So far right at ever 40hr increments i have had a big enough problem that I cant ride with out wondering if warranty will cover it. 42hrs rebuild top end 77 hrs bent valves timing chain and tensioner. 123hrs wet clutch is shot. motor work was all done by a yamaha dealer but now before taking it i called to ask if they thaught it would be covered and how long the wait would be to get it back the service manager says it is a very good chance it wont. I think i just have a lemon but who knows. Im no rough than any one else i ride with they all have no problems but they are all running 27" tires im on 29.5's but the dealer sold it to me brand new with wheels and tires on it sitting on the show room floor. But they great thing about the warranty is it'll cost 480.00 just to tell me no. If it is warranty then i pay nothing.

Thanks
Derek

Funny you post something about the wet cluch. I went on a ride yesterday and was about 40 miles into it when my rhino got stuck in low when I had it in high. Pulled over put it in diff gears it did the same thing finally it smelt like burnt rubber and it would go anywhere just rev. I have like 1100 miles on it

29" tires are extremely large for anytype of riding.....That is most likely the root of your problems

Yep sure are, and with out a clutch kit of some kind your gonna tear it up again.

run some 14g rollers and an orange secondary spring ( for a 660). this will help the longevity of your clutch with those big ass tires.

also if you have a filter on the belt intake tube, take it off or keep a dry Uni on it. heat takes it's toll on the primary and belt.

I have 1400 miles on my rhino and still have orignal belt, just measured yesterday and it is almost the same width as new.

I only have 400 miles on mine. As far as a belt filter i dont have one. I have already replaced the belt once. Actually ride before i replaced the belt as i would go down hill it would act as if i pushed in the clutch and started free rolling. Then I would hear a clanking noise and then the trans would catch and slow me back down or if i pressed the gas it would catch. It then on that ride started slipping. I blamed the slipping on the primary and belt. But now 3 rides later the enguaging and disenguaging comes and goes but the internal clutch isnt turning noting on the out side for the belt to even wanna slip.

Anyone know what could have been causing that coasting problem?

I figure the tires are kiling it but, as for the dealer and yamaha warranty is they sold it to me with them on it. But they say the tires shouldnt hurt a thing, we all know that would be different if i had been the one to put them on. That would be the first thing pointed out to me on why warranty wouldnt cover it.

I also dont run a filter on the clutch. Ive got about 1020 miles on mine. I have noticed what you are describing when i go down a big hill. I think thats normal. If the sheave is not engaged when you start to coast the belt wont hook up. Once you give it gas the sheave closes a little and grabs the belt.
