So if this is a 'doo clutch, what are the 4 "arms" that he's seeing? The TRAs that I'm familiar w/ have 3 lever arms, 3 rollers & 3 ramps. I don't know anything about the TRA IV, but would someone put that on a '98 FZ?
if your levers are coming out it sounds like your bolt might be loose or the governor cup splines are not lined up.if the bolt isn't loose loosen and remove it.you should be able to see the splines through the bolt hole,check to see that they are lined up and seated against each other.
Note to all on this topic ............he edited his post ,it has three arms not four lets move on.
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....

I had the same problem earlier this year. The problem was there was a burr on my spline and it wasnt letting the clutch go all the way on. I thought it was, but is was about a 1/2" short. I took out the bolt and tapped on the governers cup with a mallet. That solved the problem.
Unless you personally know the previous owner & he bought the sled new, I'd be very doubtful of a '98 sled w/ only 1000 miles on it. Speedo cables are quite easy to disconnect. I've also heard of guys buying speedos w/ less miles/klicks from wrecked sleds to put in theirs before selling.
That being said, it's also possible that after 8 seasons, the spring cover bushing is worn.
