U.P. Sledder calm down dude you're going to blow the caps lock key.
If you don't know clutches don't mess with it (read: springs and cam buttons every were.)If you have a dealer/shop you use take the clutch off and take it there most dealers will have the shop guys take it apart and check it out at no charge. They might even let you barrow the clutch removal tool. Taking the whole sled in gives them an excuse for charging you shop time. Wear items for Rotax clutches (cam buttons, springs, pins) are cheap. Soulds like a cam button is cocked or was installed wrong or the guild they ride in got dinged or something when the clutch kit was put in. How does the belt look? Lots of wear means lots of belt dust in the clutches. Check the clutch side crank seal too. You should NOT see a lot of grease and belt debris. If so pick one of those up too. You didn't mention what your engagement RPM, was is it real high and hard hitting?
1000 miles is more than you think for a two stroker and hard riding is hard on clutches. Rotax clutches do not allow for easy viewing of the arms it should have a "bell" like cover over them. The cover is part of the outer shieve. Have the dealer note the specs of everything non stock. He should be able to tell you if your "clutch kit" is right for your riding and elevation. Good luck.
ride hard or lock-in....
