Just re- installing the clutches, need a torque spec for the primary and secondary securing bolts....

Anyone have a repair manual covering 2000 mxz700 on their hard drive to send me a copy?


Please do if you cannnn.....

I do not have a 2000 mxz 700, but I torque my TRA's at 72-75 ft lbs.  I torque, run sled easy for a few seconds, then torque again.
I have seen primary clutches come off that were not torqued enough and I have seen guys break stuff trying to pull a clutch that was torqued too much.
As far as the secondary clutch goes, I do not have a spec for it but I tighten it until the lock washer flattens out.  You want it on there snug but you don't want to over tighten it.
If you are concerned, I would consult your local dealer.

Does anyone have hard numbers that they got from Ski-doo?  I would like to know if I am in the ball park.

Thats an awefully large number, same as a wheel stud on a passenger car, I was thinking maybe 40-50lbs. I will check further...

Aerotax is right on the money. Specs for my 98 mach 1 are 70-75lbs. As far as secondary i never torque,just enough to flatten washer & use blue loctite on secondary bolt only[not sure what reccomendation is on that]

Trojan this is out of a 2001 repair manual,TRA (70lbf) secondary(16 lbf).i would probably go a little higher than these specs though,just to be safe.

trojan,  you may be thinking of Comet (or Polaris style) clutches.  We run them on Doo cranks and torque them in that neighborhood.
